Internet Explorer 7 Crashes when using OWA


Q. After I've installed S/MIME control, my browser is crashing any time I'm trying to send an email using Internet Explorer.


A. This is a known bug with MS Exchange, and you can resolve it by downloading a hotfix:

Update for Exchange Server 2003 SP2 (KB 924334)

If you have a Front End/Back End setup you MUST install this hotfix on all Front-End servers BEFORE installing it on the Back-End servers. Otherwise you might have issues with OWA

After installing the hotfix on the server you must uninstall the S/MIME control from the computers using IE7, and reinstall the new one from the server. You can remove the S/MIME control using Add/Remove Programs from the Windows Control Panel. Once its been removed, you will see the installation options available again in OWA.

You could at least credit where you (drastically) paraphrased his answer and stole his *exact* screen capture from almost a year before this was posted...
it worked!
