I've just installed Office 2007 using Crossover Linux 7.0 onto a system running Ubuntu 8.04 64bits.
I have a couple of problems with outlook 2007 that makes it unusable for me:
1.- I cannot open .pst files that I had stored in my /data NTFS partition, both outlook 2007 and previous formats. It says that the files are not .pst, which is untrue. I have no problem opening the same files with the same Outlook 2007 if I run it in a virtual machine.
2.- I cannot connect to my IMAP server (gmail), outlook gives errors 0x800CCC0f and 0x800CCC0e. Again I have no problem in doing it if I run the same outlook using a virtual machine
With regards to issue #2 - connecting to gmail IMAP does not work in Crossover. At least, it is widely known not to work. Outlook requires that SP2 be installed into your OS to fix the connectivity issues, and this is impossible in crossover. Wondering if you have service packs installed in the windows inside your virtual machine?
Jack, thanks for your prompt answer. Indeed, I have SP2 installed on my VM.
I was not aware this was a known issue, could not find it in a quick search in the forums. Sorry for the inconvenience.

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
