I don't think it has but I am about to start the same battle myself next week.

Okay,the forces of evil, though still likely triumphant in the end, have changed their minds and dictated that I install Office 2007. I haven't done any research yet but has the ugly published Outlook 2007 been figured out and fixed yet?I did manage to get the MS hotfix and the citrix patches installedOn Thu, Aug 21, 2008 at 12:12 AM, JAlexander <jalexander@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > wrote: I successfully installed that one, rebooted, opened a pub desktop, enabled cleartype, but the display is still nasty.

If you publish a desktop, there's a Citrix hotfix to enable Cleartype support: http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX113295 . The second hotfix (CTX117240) tells me that I'm not authorized to even view it so you must have to have a support contract or something.I'll publish a desktop for myself and enable Cleartype to see what happens.----- Original Message ----- From: Greg Reese To: thin@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Tuesday, August 19, 2008 2:29 PM Subject: [THIN] Re: Published Outlook 2007 is uglyI can't even get them to agree it's ok to run XP Sp3. Office 2007 isn't even on the radar. it's a shame they didn't offer a "classic" view or something. or maybe they did and I just haven't found it yet.On Tue, Aug 19, 2008 at 1:19 PM, JAlexander <jalexander@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > wrote: This should be fun...LOL I've been testing on a local PC and haven't had any issues with it so far. My users have only had it for 2 days so I'm sure they'll find all the bugs for me. ;) Unfortunately, the move to 2007 was decreed by our CIO and I had to comply. Thankfully, the upgrade to 2007 on the Citrix server was fairly painless. The display in all the office apps is pretty fuzzy but it's most prominent in Outlook.----- Original Message ----- From: Jim Kenzig http://thin.ms To: thin@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Tuesday, August 19, 2008 9:52 AM Subject: [THIN] Re: Published Outlook 2007 is uglyI don't know I am still very inclined to stick with Outlook 2003. I have been using Outlook 2007 locally on my Vista Business PC since it's release and testing and every time I get an update from MS (once a month) it somehow breaks Outlook 2007 and I have to run the repair utility from the CD. Very frustrating.Jim Kenzig Blog: http://www.techblink.comOn Tue, Aug 19, 2008 at 8:51 AM, JAlexander <jalexander@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > wrote: I was kind of hoping good would overcome since I upgraded to 2007 this weekend and the display is ugly here as well. ;) Any suggestions would be welcome.----- Original Message ----- From: Steve Snyder To: thin@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Monday, August 18, 2008 9:36 PM Subject: [THIN] Re: Published Outlook 2007 is ugly the forces of evil triumphed.
