We have a Smoothwall server set up at the school, and use Microsoft Office 2007 - including Outlook 2007 connected to an Exchange 2003 server. The smoothwall server uses an upstream proxy - based at the Local Authority (this is compulsory - as part of our service agreement).
The other school I'm aware that's also experiencing these issues, use a ISA 2006 Proxy server, have Office 2007 and also have to connect to the upstream proxy.

Testing has been carried out on a Ubuntu box running firefox, and the issue still occurs. I've been advised that it's courtesy of Microsoft's in-built ad engine attempting to get you to upgrade to the next version of Office.
Any ideas anyone??? If the above statement is true, is there any way of disabling this ad engine??
