I'm having the same issue...I believe its a compatability issue with Vista. I
had XP before..never a problem. My understanding is Outlook 2007 will only
work with Vista. But I'm sure Microsoft can create a fix..this is BS! Had I
known, I would have upgraded at the time of purchase. But since "Dell" failed
to mention this "slight" problem...you have to spend more money. In my
case...I'm returning the computer! Does anyone have a legitimate fix for this
