We have a problem with OWA and Windows 7.  Windows 7 computers(32bit and 64bit) can access OWA and send emails and receive.  The problem is when they reply to an email it will not let them type in the body because there is a red x  in the box.  We are using exchange 2003

Does this describe the problem?

I know it mentions vista but it also says for any ie above 6.  It is due to lack of support for the email active x.
IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

sorry for the late response the hotfix worked great, and didn't even need a reboot of the exchange server.
