Updates Included in Version 8.2.1

The following issues were addressed:

  • Messages with a blank subject could not be dragged from Outlook to the desktop. Instead, the following message appeared: "The drag and drop operation could not be completed. An error occurred while writing to the disk. The disk might be full or write-protected."

  • On a computer without security enabled, messages occasionally would not send the first time. Instead, the Send toolbar button remained in the depressed state.

  • When copying or cutting text that contained an URL and then closing the message, a message would appear prompting you to keep or discard the large amount of text on the clipboard.

  • Holding down the CTRL key while double-clicking a hyperlink in an e-mail message multiple times caused Outlook to freeze.

  • Sometimes Outlook launched the Web browser to display the target of a hyperlink in a message, even if that hyperlink was not directly clicked on.

  • In the Japanese version of Outlook, Japanese characters received over the Internet were sometimes displayed incorrectly.

  • Messages with multiple attachments forwarded from a Outlook Web Access client to Outlook 8.2 displayed only the first attachment.

  • Web forms were not being rendered in Outlook Web Access, even if the Web services information was correctly entered.

  • Outlook was unable to use Web services with an SSL-secured (https://) Web server.

  • On a 68 KB–based Macintosh computer, dragging attachments from a message into an Exchange folder sometimes caused a Type 2 error.
