I don't know anything about this specific problem, but you mustn't treat 
Outlook and Outlook express as the same in this regard.  Although Microsoft 
has treated them both to a more or less similar GUI, I've read that both 
products are very different underneath.  It was said that one, or both, were 
acquired from takeovers and that Outlook and OE have just about nothing in 
common.  Or at least that's how it all started. Who knows what may have 
changed since then.  So bugs in one are not at all certain to appear in the 
other (unless of course, it calls an ActiveX or IE function or so)
