Winword.exe goes to 99% cpu usage

When I open an e-mail (that is 24KB) and try to reply to all, reply, or forward Outlook freezes. When I check the processes that are running, winword.exe is running at 99%. I am using Word as the editor for my e-mails (I have the check box "Use Microsoft Word to edit my e-mail messages" checked). If I uncheck the option the I can reply, repy to all, or forward he e-mail with no problem. This is only happening with 1 e-mail. I am using Office 2K. I have run "Detect and Repair", re-created the profile, and deleted the add-ins one at a time. Is there a way to permenantly fix this issue?

IMO: Using Word as your email editor sucks.

I have around 300 clients and had loads of problems until we stopped using Word to edit emails.

www.wopr.com has some info on this, basically Woody thinks that 'Word mail' is geting better but is still full of problems.

Try turning it off and see how you get on with email. I think you'll get use to it quickly and won't miss 'Word mail' after a few days.
