Ok - strange one.

I have Outlook 2007 installed on 2 x computers (laptop & desktop).  Since mid last week I have been unable to save or edit any appointments in my calendar on either computer.

When I go to add an appointment and click save I just get the hour glass for a second of to, then nothing.  It still shows the open appointment.  If I close, it then asks do I want to save or discard etc.  So for somereaosn it doesnt appear to recognise the save button any more?

Also when I try to send an invitation, I get the same thing.  Once I click invite attendees, it has a think then nothing - no error message....

In the meantime I can save/edit appointments through OWA

This sounds very much like an exchange permission problem, especially since it happend on two computers at the same time.

Just make sure that you're owner of your calendar. I also once had a similar problem which was due to corrupt cache. So disable Exchange cached mode, and if that does not help, recreate your mail profile (over control panel, mail).

Do other users experience the same problems?

thanks - a rebuild of the address book did the trick.
