Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • In Office Outlook 2007, you change the encoding of a message body to fix the character corruption in a message. When you are prompted with a dialog box that shows the following information, you click Yes.
    The properties of the message <Message Title> have been changed.Do you want to save changes to this message?
    Then, when you open that message again, the character corruption still occurs.
  • You install a COM add-in for Office Outlook 2007. Then, you use a Group Policy object (GPO) to configure that add-in as trusted for Office Outlook. In this scenario, you are prompted unexpectedly to provide access permission for that add-in when you try to use it.
  • You start Office Outlook 2007 with the /ResetFolderNames parameter to change the name of the Outlook Calendar folder. Then, you try to perform a mail merge in Office Word 2007. You select some Office Outlook 2007 contacts as the recipients. In this case, you receive the following error message:
    This data source contains no visible tables
  • Office Outlook 2007 with Service Pack 2 (SP2) may crash intermittently when you try to view multiple calendars at the same time.

  • In Office Outlook 2007, when you open more than 95 additional mailboxes, you cannot send e-mail messages.
  • Office Outlook 2007 consumes high CPU usage when you run an external add-in for Office Outlook 2007. This problem occurs when that add-in calls the SendMessageTimeout function to obtain the caption, icon and text information from the Office Outlook windows.

  • You run Office Outlook 2007 in a non-DST time zone, such as GMT+09:00. You receive an e-mail message at 15:00 (GMT+09:00). When you save that message to an IMAP folder, the received time of that message unexpectedly changes to 15:00 (GMT).
