I've recently migrated from Outlook Express to MS Outlook (2003) which uses Word as word processor. The WordFast icon appears at the top left-hand corner of every message.
Now I've found out that Outlook doesn't work at all properly if I have a WF file open. The delete and backspace keys prompt a SAVE/ CLOSE/ CANCEL dialogue box every time they are pressed. The mouse is disabled, doesn't work. And if Outlook is open I cannot open any Word file, it doesn't work.
Has anyone experienced anything similar ? Is there a solution ??
Have I done anything wrong ?
Is there a way to sever this connection between the two programs ??

Thank you very much for your time and attention

A workaround Sep 2, 2008

A quick workaround would be to prevent MS Outlook from using MS Word to edit messages. This is done through Tools -> Options -> Mail format.
