WSS 3.0 Workflow Task and Outlook 2007 error


1. Create a simple workflow using Visual Studio 2008 and deploy it to WSS 3.0. 

2.  In this workflow you create a Task and let Sharepoint send an email notification to the user

3. When user receives  the email the email looks like this:


4. When you click the Edit buton in the left top corner an error message appears that the image cannot be edited because the site is not accessible or the task has been removed. But this is not true.

The error is caused by WSS 3.0.  WSS 3.0 does not contain service named workflow.asmx and Outlook is trying to call this service.

The easy way to solve this problem is to upgrade to MOSS 2007 which contains workflow.asmx service or the only other way that comes to my mind is to implement your own workflow.asmx, but I don’t know if this approach is viable.
