I'm sorry to bring this up again...

After much frustration without a fix, I decided to reimage my XP workstation. 
With a clean install of all applications, including Office 2007, my Outlook 
2007 worked fine until today. Outlook is exhibiting the same symptoms again. 
Looking back to what was done to the machine recently, I remembered that I had 
earlier installed Exchange Management System (from Win 2003 Exchange server CD) 
so as to be able to use ExMerge to manage my Exchange 2007 mailboxes. 

The ExMerge tool is working fine but it must not be compatible with Outlook 

Here is a link to the steps that I followed to install it:

Subject: Outlook 2007 issues with Exchange 2007

I'm trying to find some fixes for a couple of issues with Outlook 2007 in an 
Exchange 2007 environment.

1. When composing a message, Outlook 2007 acts as though it times out after 
about 2-3 minutes. When this happens, if I send the message, it ends up in the 
DRAFTS folder, with the message truncated. This happens whether I'm composing, 
replying or forwarding. OWA always works fine.

2. Perhaps related to the first issue, but I'm not able to open or save any 
type of attachments in Outlook 2007. I always get "Operation failed" message. 
Again, this issue is not seen in OWA.

I have tried several times to completely uninstalled and reinstalled Outlook 
2007 but the issues still come up. I have checked on the Web for for help but 
could not find anything. Please help!
