You mention an exported .PST file. Did you export a .PST on another system
then import this .PST into Outlook 2007 on Vista rather than making a COPY
of the .PST on the old system, placing the copy on the Vista box where it
wouldn't overwrite anything Outlook 2007 made when installed, then opening
it with 'File|Open\Outlook Data File? I ask this because the .PST
export/import functions in Outlook have been broken for a long time. Using
these functions to move a .PST file not only loses data, it also commonly
damages the Outlook profile in use and a damaged profile *MIGHT* produce
such a symptom. I say might in BIG letters because:

1. Its a guess. I've never been able to reproduce this particular problem.
2. Damaged Outlook profiles can produce some extremely bizarre behavior.

You might try creating a new profile.
