Sometimes when composing a mail, typing does not insert characters into the body of the message. Click on the To, CC, or Subject line and then click back into the body of the message.The official word is as follows: "Microsoft continuously strives to provide a consistent and predictable end-of-life-cycle experience for all of its products.These changes have required a significant investment in converting the underlying architectures of the Outlook application and as such have introduced changes into the end-user experience, specifically around configuring the new Outlook 2007 application and the need to install Windows Desktop Search 3.0.Windows Desktop Search (WDS) 3.0 is a native component of Vista, and is being shipped separately as a system component through Windows Update for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 users.WDS is a system service that indexes file, email and other content in order to provide fast searches over content and properties.It is an upgrade to all previous 2.x versions of Windows Desktop Search you may currently use.Our research has shown that there is a relatively small set of customers who want to upgrade their desktops to the latest and greatest versions of Office and run server technology as old as Exchange 5.5.There are clearly exceptions but they don't seem to be the norm." When deleting an RSS feed on one machine while multiple Outlook clients are running against the same store, the entry in the Account Manager for the feed does not get removed.
As a result, Outlook 2007 will not support Exchange 5.5.Once you close and re-open the Account Manager, all subsequent feeds will get added correctly.Official comments on Outlook 2007 requiring Windows Desktop Search: "Outlook has worked closely with the MS Search team to develop a version of our Instant Search functionality that leverages the new Windows Desktop Search 3.0 platform.We will be shipping Outlook 2007 with a new version of Instant Search technology that is built on top of WDS and is dependent on its presence for search to work. In order to provide a consistent search experience across the Windows Explorer, Office applications and any others utilizing Windows Desktops Search, and to optimize system resources, we have decided to build on a single, unified indexing component for Windows.The result of this work will be in Outlook 2007 Beta 2, and therefore require installation of WDS 3.0 at boot time."
