I am having a problem since a recent upgrade to IE8.   When I try to create a new email or forward an existing one it freezes up and wont let me move the cursor.   The only way I can send mail is via a reply and then swap out the content (email address, text....).   Has anyone experienced a similar problem

I have not seen this, but could suggest it may be trying to open a new window.  Be sure you do not have any toolbars or IE set to block pop-up windows and/or press and hold the Ctrl key when selecting New or Forward and see if that helps.
If I find any other suggestions I'll pass them along.

If it's Exchange 2003, it may be needing this patch: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=41275DEC-4C01-4C41-AA64-C9DBE5EA3F7E&displaylang=en (applies to IE7 and IE8)

I have to say that I am not specifically certain what fixed it.  It just started working without any major change by my part
