At last, Microsoft Outlook 2007 Works

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 16-Mar-2006 22:07

I just installed Outlook 2007 Technical Beta on my tablet PC, and it seems to be working now. When I first installed the Outlook 12 Beta it would simply create a new offline file (I use Exchange Server 2003 in Cached Mode) and then go into a loop using 100% of the CPU.

When unchecking Cached Mode it would work ok, but crash on application exit.

I installed Outlook 12 Beta, removed it, installed Outlook 2003, rinsed, repeat, a few times, with the same results.

Big frustation settled at the time, because all other software of the Office package (Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Access) worked well and fast.

I decided to try the new Outlook 2007 Technical Beta, but this time I disabled all add-ins and I also added the whole folder where the .ost file is located into the exclusion list for my anti-virus software.

So far so good. The offline file is created, all operations seem to be working fine, e-mails are flowing nicely.

I am much happier now...
