Windows 7 Library issue when using Outlook 2003

       you are using Outlook 2003 on Windows 7 and when inserting a picture or file from or when saving a message to a Library, the Library shows up empty.

How do you fix this?

Office 2003 uses its own file browser dialogs which are not aware of the Library structure which was introduced in Windows 7. As a result, any Open/Save/Insert dialog box cannot show the contents of any Libraries. The same is true when selecting a computer from a Homegroup since this relies on the use of Libraries as well.

As far as I know, there is no fix planned for this. Instead of using the new Library  structure in Windows 7, you’ll have to browse to the folder where the pictures/files reside or where you want to save your message/attachments.

As a workaround, you could add some of your popular locations to the Places Bar.
