    Scroll in Folder List/Navigation thing acts goofy (2003 SP1)

    I just upgraded from Office XP to 2003 by doing a total reinstall of my system (from the OS up). Here's my problem. The area that used to be called the Folder List in XP (now it's a Navigation something, I think), has some annoying behavior with the scroll bar. If I click on the scroll bar to move it up or down so I can see more of my Folder list, it acts like I have locked the scroll bar in a scrolling mode, so I can't make the Folder List stop scrolling until I click somewhere. It only happens in the Folder List area (both horizontally and vertically) in Outlook. How do I make the scroll bar not keep scrolling after I have clicked and dragged the scroll bar to where I wanted it to be?

    Thanks,
    Becky

    I don't have Office 2003, but... it sounds like maybe you don't have the optimal mouse driver installed, and it is using some kind of strange scrolling mode designed for laptop touchpads. You might check with the manufacturer's web site for an updated driver if this occurs in any other applications in addition to Outlook, or if you run out of other things to check.

    I actually thought it might be the mouse driver, except that it only does happen in Outlook, and only in the Navigation pane. It's pretty annoying. I tried seeing if it happened in IE, Word, Excel, and a few other programs I have on my machine, but I didn't have a problem.

    Thanks for the advice, though.
