I can confirm that workaround. I am experiencing a very similar problem.
I can read and reply to e-mails in OWA but I cannot forward e-mails or
create new ones.
In those cases, I cannot enter any text into the 'To', 'Cc' or other fields.
If I create a new e-mail I can enter text in the body only, and then the
characters appear but the cursor is 'stuck' in the leftmost column. Cursor
movement and/or editing is impossible.
Your suggestion worked though - changing the font from the default Tahoma
gets around the problem.
The only thing odd that I'm aware of is that I installed IE8 without the
compatibility views enabled. I went in an enabled those for our OWA server
after the fact but it did not change anything - the problem was still there
and no 'compatibility view' icon was shown.
Thanks for the tip on the font change, saved my butt!
