On a different subject, Outlook Crashing

On a different subject, I had Outlook 2007 keep crashing on me yesterday when ever I'd reply to an email or Start a new email. The Office Diagnostics didn't find a problem.

After much looking into it deeper, I managed to find the problem. Some of the customised menu items (I think it was the google search) was causing the problem. After deleting the file outcmd.dat - find it in the hidden folder -c:\Documents and Settings/username/ApplicationData/Microsoft/Outlook - just rename it to outcmd.old. When you restarted Outlook 2007, it will create a new fresh file. Lost my menu customizations, but no big deal - at least it does not crash now.
