MPE Outlook integration do not support Outlook 2007 SP2 or later. It only supports Outlook 2007 SP1. Please refer the Outlook Integration Requirements Section for MPE 2.1 Release Notes at link below for further details
The initial plan was to support the Outlook 2007 SP2 in our next MPE maintainence release planned for early Fall 2009 but this may change because MPE is going to merge with Enterprise MeetingPlace in Q1 CY2010..
My customer is not going to accept that they have to uninstall Outlook 2007 SP2 in order to get the MPE plugin to work correctly without some committment as to when Cisco is going to support this. There has to be better answer than to tell a customer that they have to stop patching their MS products.

MP6 MR5 released this week supports Outlook 2007 SP2 but not MeetingPlace Express as of today.The next version of MPE is also under engineering discussions and most probably EC'd within next few weeks but until then not supported.
Is there any update yet as to the planned release of a version of MPE that will work with Outlook 2007 SP2? Is there any updates regarding the bug (CSCta93597) that has been opened for this issue?
Both TAC and Product Management are working with Engineering to find out the best way on “MPE Support for Outlook 2007 SP2”.We have already seen multiple bugs opened on this issue so we need to officially support Outlook 2007 SP2. The expectations are that Engineering may either provide a hotfix or come up with another Maintainence Release within next 2-3 months timeframe.
