    What have you tried?

    Google shows that this is a common problem - did you search? for example suggests trying using IE 8's Compatibility mode.

      Install the Exchange best practice analyser and see what patch level you're exchange is on. You need to ensure you have the latest updates installed for OWA. Also type systeminfo at the command prompt on you're exchange box and see if KB924334 is present. If not it wont hurt to install it as iv seen this issue before with deployments using IE7.

          Have a look here, there seems to be a workaround for this.

          It seems OWA does not like IE8.

            Well, i have exchange server 2003 and using IE8 with no problems. Can be a issue with english version? i use portuguese version of everything and works ok. Anyway i had similar problems with IE8 but other software, specialy Pelsk Software, i have to put IE8 in compatability mode to see the control panel correctly.

              Windows Update will not show you Exchange patches - Microsoft Update will. However running the best practises tool will tell you if you are missing an update.
