Vista and Conference Calls Don't Mix

Redmond magazine columnist Greg Shields got this tip from faithful reader Travis: "We've been having problems with our ACT conference bridge that've started with the installation of Vista/Office 2007. When Outlook 2007 receives a new message, the 'new message' sound apparently is the exact same sound as some of the touchtone sounds on the phone. For us, it causes the conference bridge to temporarily pause the conference and start reading off the long list of commands. This has happened multiple times. We've also seen problems where the Windows startup sound causes the conference bridge to completely shut down. There must be some similarity between the new Vista/Office sounds and the tones a telephone uses!"
