We are running OWA successfully but have one laptop running XP professional and Office 2003 that will not run an OWA session correctly.  Messages can be displayed but when replying, forwarding, or creating a new message the text body is replaced by a RED X and will not open the text body for editing or writing.  This is the only machine we are experiencing this problem with.  We have tried repair features and checked all settings against other machines with no result.  Please help with suggestions.

not sure... if it is just on his machine which it seems to be then I would reinstall office (I know you said that you have tried repair features) but this i believe is the driver behind some of the owa functionality, and then run a scan for spyware, Then if this does not work I would uninstall and reintall IE6..

One question then with Office 2003 there is no way to uninstall everything because it leave reminance of settings and registry edits that stay even after it is uninstalled, so when you go to reinstall Office 2003 all the same settings are still there and currently there is no 3rd party software utility that can fix that right now. However there is one for Office 2002 (XP)! Do you have any other suggestions we might try?
