cx7.0/Office2007: Can't connect to IMAP server on outlook. Can't open .pst files

Hi there.
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

Any advice?


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.

No worries. The forums keep us on our toes. Have a great day.
