Outlook Web Access – unable to use reply or create new email


Email comes up ok but when I hit the reply button, reply mail details come up but a small x appears in the text area as though an active x component has not run. This now means no reply text can be entered.


Internet Explorer 7 creates this problem by preventing ActiveX controls.


This is a server solution. A fix must be applied to the server running the exchange:

OWA – small x appears in the text area

Apply to: Exchange 2003 and Outlook Web Access (OWA)
