Outlook 2007 blocks Russian characters
Posted on 2011-09-27
I use an English version Outlook 2007 for writing e-mails in English and Russian. When I write e-mails in Russian, I use a Russian / Cyrillic keyboard in Windows XP which produces Russian characters.
I switch the keyboard from English to Russian in the system tray.
Since last week Outlook seems to block Russian characters. In all other Windows applications the Russian keyboard works fine and in Outlook the English keyboard works without problems. But when I switch to the Russian keyboard in the Outlook editor, nothing happens when I press keys on my keyboard.
When I start Outlook in safe mode the Russian keyboard works without problems. But in normal mode nothing happens, so there must be a process that actively blocks Russian characters.
I re-installed Outlook 2007 and I temporarily disabled all the add-ins, but that did not solve the problem.
Has anyone suggestions how to solve this problem ?
