Getting Red X on OWA & Vista with reply and new emails

Posted under MS Outlook, Vista by ifoundafix

The other day while browsing the Internet I Found A Fix for a recent problem I was having. The issue is described as follows;

I couldn’t write new emails or reply to exiting mails from Outlook Web Access on a Vista machine. All I could see was a red X  in the corner. See Pic.

Red X - Outlook Web Access

The solution and description to this error is set out below;

You will need to install this patch on your Windows Server. A reboot will also be required. After this is complete, you will need to reinstall  S/MIME from OWA. Login to your remote mail from the web page and go to options located on the bottom of the page. Go to E-mail Security and reinstall S/MIME. This will also require a reboot of your computer

I would like to acknowledge the assistance and thank the following two websites for their assistance, Microsoft Exchange Team Blog and MsExchange Blogspot

I hope you too have Found A Fix!
