    Totally out of left field - but does anyone encounter issues with OUTLOOK 2007 in regard to the copy/past clipboard?
    I work with many emails daily and this program's propensity to drop items that are copied to the clipboard creates daily frustration.
    Anyone else deal w this?

    I've never faced this issue, atleast that I can remember. I use Outlook daily at work, and receive way too many e-mails for any sane person.

    We've upgrade to 2011 now, so I can't really help.

    Do you use Outlook installed on your desktop or do you access it using a client such as Citrix. If you are using 07, are you using Windows XP?

    Also, do you have automatic updates enabled? If you are on a corporate domain, your updates may be controlled by a WSUS server instead of directly downloading them from microsoft. This is a common setup in offices and some IT departments don't properly oversee this. Outlook 2007 was notorious for being buggy and it is kind of like the Windows Vista or Windows Millenium of the Office Suites. 2003 and 2010 are much more stable and I'd recommend either one.

    Perhaps this Microsoft Hotfix will help you? http://support.microsoft.com/kb/961752

    That is exactly how it is set up.
    Equivalent to having a car that you have to push start..
    I'll check the link
