Just to clarify something:
When I say reply from the desktop alert, I mean click the down arrow in the
upper right-hand corner of the alert and click 'reply.' Opening the message
and replying from the opened message works normally.

Subject: [exchangelist] Outlook bug?

We use Exchange 5.5 SP4+ and most users are using Outlook 2002. A number of
us have been testing Outlook 2003 (as part of Office), and I've been
generally pleased with it. However, I've found the following behavior and
suspect it may be a bug. If someone out there with Outlook 2003 could try to
replicate this, it would help me determine if it's particular to my setup.

When I reply to or forward a message from Outlook's Desktop Alert (the
transparent pop-up window), the original message's icon doesn't change to
indicate a reply or forward has been sent. I cannot, therefore, use the
feature that allows me to find related messages. While this isn't a critical
issue, but it's caused problems for me and I predict others in my
organization will find it troubling as well
