I posted this on Channel 9 as well....

This is a strange problem and is becoming frustrating.

Upgraded to Outlook 2003.  After the upgrade when you open a message up and do the following:

View
Options
Importance

Let's say the Importance is NORMAL, using the dropdown box change to HIGH...Outlook crashes.

Same process Importance is NORMAL, using the dropdown box hover over each option (LOW, NORMAL, HIGH) select NORMAL ...Outlook crashes.

I am running XP Pro.  This was happening prior to SP2.  Installed SP2 still a problem.  I really didn't expect SP2 to clear it up.

Installed Office 2003 SP1...still a problem

Repaired Outlook..still a problem

Reinstalled Outlook...still a problem

Any ideas?

I have a problem with Outlook 2003, but this is a new install, when I try to write a new message the mail window close without sending an errror message, I change the option to write in text format only and the problem was solved, but I founfd that If i open Outlook and after that the word, after typing the first lines the word close without message.

If I do not open the Outlook the word works Great, I reinstall the Office, repair and still tye same.

Any Idea ??

Hi, I have exactly the same error on 1 out of 100 computers in our clinic.
I you first open a word document, and never close word again during that session, also Outlook will work properly.
You are the 1st I 've seen describing this, cannot find it on Microsofts hoempage either. Have you found a solution?

I must admit to being more impressed for it. I've even recommended it to all my friends.

I have been using it. Outlook Express more stable and secure than other programs.

I had the same problem!

After opening outlook the thing is crassing...
Then when you open Word, it closes after you type something and wait 5 sec or hit enter.

I solved this issue by deleting some contacts in the contact list.
There where 2 contacts with the same name..

After deleting these contacts, outlook and word worked normally.
