Outlook 2007
Windows 7 Professional

I have 2 computers.  On my XP machine messages in Outlook open normally.  On my Windows 7 machine each time I open a message the first time it is blank.  I can close the message and open it again and it displays normally.

Anybody seen that before?

Thanks,
Brooks

Its actually called scanpst.exe, and on your machine it will be located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12.

A third party add on, Outlook Connector, had to be configured differently for Windows 7.

Disable "Enable message download cancellation"
