Outlook 2003, can't open/accept/decline task since latest updates - tasks have attachment icon
Posted on 2006-06-14
Since my latest Office updates something in the Outlook task section has gone nuts.
I use a PC, Windows XP Pro, Office 2003 Small Office Edition, Outlook 2003 incl business manager all programmes are fully updated.
My Outlook seems to have one other hickup (crashing/freezing needing restart sometimes when you are on your way to type in a contact when sending mail).
Since the latest office updates - as it seems - the following occurs:
When I receive a task assigned to me it shows in the inbox.
I can neither open the task, nor accept/decline in the preview panel (as usual)
The tasks arrive showing the attachment icon but were send without attachment.
Task appear to arrive fine on my laptop (not run latest office update) so I deduct the error is on my PC/Office configuration.
Help please - my boss is really sad she can't assign task anymore ;-))))
