Outlook Web Mail - Red X in Text Entry Box

    After reading Email, selecting "reply" results in a new window which fails to

    display the area for input of text. Instead it shows a square with a red

    "x" inside on the upper left corner of the text box. I can type with no

    problem in the From or Two boxes. Just the message text area is grayed out.

    I am running Windows 7 Ultimate and IE8. I tried IE Compatibility mode but

    it did not help.

    It works perfectly in Google Chrome, but Outlook Web defaults to an older

    interface with less functionality.

    Outlook and Outlook Web Access are two completely separate things. The

    correct newsgroup for Outlook Web Access is microsoft.public.exchange.clients,

    since OWA is a function of Exchange.

    Sounds to me like there's a scripting problem in your browser.
