Outlook 2011 for Mac

I just installed the new office 2011 on the mac.  I was successfully able to connect to my exchange server all of the mail sync'ed just fine.

But i cannot send a new message, reply, reply to all, or forward.

I click the buttons and they don't do any, just click

I can delete, create a new contact, all of the other functions on the ribbon seem to work except sending any type of messages.

Now I haven't tried reloading, before I did that I just wanted to see if anyone else had that issue.  I haven't found anything like that on EE or just a google search.

Thanks

What version of Exchange are you using?  To get 2011 to work correctly you have to have at least Exchange 2007.

We are having the same exact issue on a single users MBP with OSX 10.6 connecting to Exchange 2007.

I am about to do the manual removal of Office 2011 and reinstall. Any suggestions?

Ok I will leave the questions open.  Good thing to find out it wasn't just me.  I have yet to reinstall I don't use my Mac a lot.  More testing for potential client use.

Let me know what happens after you reload.

Ok, I have researched and found the fix on Microsoft's forum for Office for Mac as well as tested it.

Here is the link to the fix: http://www.officeformac.com/ms/ProductForums/Outlook/1063

Basically, you need to reinstall the current version of Safari.

Hope this helps!
