Microsoft introduced a new look to Outlook with Microsoft Outlook 2007. When using Outlook 2007, you may experience a few issues, depending on the tasks you need to do. Microsoft has released fixes for many of the most common issues. Many of the problems with Outlook 2007 have been fixed through service packs and hot fixes, especially for Outlook 2007 and the Office 2007 suite.
When you start Outlook 2007 the first time, Outlook tries to import settings from previous versions of the program. If no account settings exist, you will need to create a new profile. Once the profile is created, Outlook may still be slow when it first starts, especially when checking for and receiving messages. This issue has been resolved through Microsoft updates.
Problems with the Calendar
Multiple problems exist with the Outlook 2007 calendar feature. One issue is recurring dates not printing correctly. Another problem is users copied on messages gaining access to a restricted calendar. Publishing a calendar sometimes reduces functionality, such as copying and pasting items to dates. One final common issue is adding an Internet calendar subscription. Most of these issues are resolved with Microsoft updates and restarting Outlook 2007.
To Do Bar Problems
Related messages may not always appear when searching using the Find All option. Another problem with the To Do bar is All Day Events not appearing. These are two of the most common issues with the To Do bar, but other search issues may occur depending on your settings. Some issues have been addressed with Microsoft updates.
Message Will Not Move
When you try to move a message from your Inbox to another folder, the message does not move. This is most common when moving a message to a Personal Folder File, such as an archive. Microsoft has created a hotfix to resolve this problem.
Connectors and Add-Ins Do Not Load
Connectors to Outlook 2007 mailboxes and add-ins may not load properly, if at all, when you first start Outlook 2007. These problems are often caused by faulty network connections, improperly installed add-ins and a few glitches with Outlook 2007. If Microsoft updates do not fix the problem, one of the other issues may be to blame.
Cannot Open Hyperlinks
When you click a hyperlink in an Outlook 2007 message, task or calendar, the link may not load. You'll receive an "operation cancelled" message. Microsoft has provided an update to fix this issues so hyperlinks load properly.
