I have installed the 32 bit version of the Exchange 2007 Management console on my citrix server.  If I RDP to the server and run it, everything works just fine.  However,  when I publish the msc through Citrix, the snap-in crashes.  I believe it may be something with the animation of loading circle because the tabs that don't use that work just fine and it puts a large red X where the animation should be.  
The error is:

This snap-in performed a non-valid operation and has been unloaded.  To continue working with this snap-in, restart MMC or try loading the snap-in again.

Exception Type: System.NullReferenceException

Exception Message: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

May not be compatible.  I personally do not publish admin tools (or even load them) on the Citrix server because it softens up network security...especially if you allow users desktop access.

That said, have you tried upgrading to the latest XenApp client software?

We are on the latest XenApp software.  This Citrix server was put in place dedicated for our admins only... no users have access to this one.

Got it.  Beyond making sure you are using the latest SW, the only other thing I can suggest is going through the Citrix troubleshooting steps:

Thanks to the article, it appears that if you disable Seamless on your Application Set that the Exchange 2007 Management Console will operate just fine.  Anyone know how to disable this for an individual application rather than the whole set?

Problem Resolved:

I had dual monitors.  My primary was on the right.  Switching my primary to my left monitor resolved all issues.  I have had several issues with Citrix and my dual monitors.
