Preferred Solution: Outlook Express crashes when I try to find messages!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I thought I posted this before, but I can't find it. I appologize if this is a dupicate.

I had some major computer problems, as a result of which many of my programs lost their configuration information. One of the things I lost was my address book and saved messages in Outlook Express (Ver. 5.50). I'm pretty sure I didn't lose any data, just the ability of the program to find it.

Can anyone tell me where these files may be, what they could be called, and how to get them back into OE? I had my OE email divided into a number of folders, if that is important.

Thanks.

I mainly use Outlook 2000, however, in order to get a number of Hotmail messages onto my computer's HD, i synchronised Outlook Express with Hotmail. I now have messages from a folder I have on Hotmail on my hard drive too.

A search revealed that this folder (and presumably all messages in it) is stored under C:\Windows\Application Data\Identities\{00B31680-0793-11D3-A398-C0610D677E39}\Microsoft\Outlook Express.

I copied the .dbx file named hotmail - [folder name].dbx to my desktop. I went in to Outlook 2000 file>import blah blah blah, but it wont let me import .dbx files

soooooo.....is there anyway to get my messages from hotmail from this specific folder into outlook 2000? i no longer need the folder in hotmail and will just delete it as soon as i have a permanent copy on my hard drive in outlook 2000. im assuming that since the dbx file is on my hard disk with all the messages (which i can read offline in outlook express) that i wont need to set up outlook 2000 for hotmail synchronisation ?!?

I'm trying to read the e-mails from my old Windows 98 computer on my current Windows XP computer but I haven't been able to figure out how to successfully do this. The e-mail client on the Windows 98 machine was Outlook Express 6 and the one on my current XP computer is Outlook 2002.

I followed the instructions listed on the Microsoft support site (Article ID: 270670) for backing up the data from Outlook Express which left me with a folder of .dbx files (Inbox.dbx, Drafts.dbx etc) which I then burned onto a CD and transferred over to my XP computer. My problem is that now that I've done that I'm not sure how to get Outlook 2002 to import that folder of .dbx files or recognize it. I googled it but didn't find any helpful results other than links to expensive conversion programs. So could anyone here offer any help on the matter? Thanks in advance.
 

A:How do I import messages from Outlook Express 6 into Outlook 2002?

Update: I realized that Outlook can't open the .dbx files and that Outlook Express has to export them to Outlook. However, when I tried this it only exported the messages in my "Sent" folder and none of the messages in any of the other folders, including Inbox.dbx which is about 500MB in size so I know the messages are in there. Any advice on what to do next?

When WIN XP atrts up, error reads: "spoolsv.exe - application error - Exception in privileged instructions at location 0x66f46798". Too high tech for me! Bypassing this, I, cannot print any messages (emails) in Outlook Express (or Outlook). Get error:
" Error line 1343" If I DO hit debug a yellow arrow points to a line that starts with a colon. I can probably copy and paste that line here if needed.
Comments: No spyware, no viruses, because of other problems , reverted back to IE6 (from 7).
Please note: Word and Excel docs all print fine. I can copy and paste the email into Word if necessary. Outllook sends and receives normally, it is only the print function failing.
In Add/Remove did a repair on Office 2003, nothing changed. Googled spoolsv.exe and some think it is a virus (I don't).
Another error that came up (once) was simply: "c:\program files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" If this file is missing, can I just copy it from another XP unit here and put it into place without further screwing up the works?
Any help appreciated - if further info needed (like a screen grab of the debug instructions) please advise.

For some unknown reason my OE messages will not display. All my subjects are still listed but clicking (highlighting) them does not result in the message being displayed. Just as disturbing, or more so, this is also true of all messages store in folders in OE. I have also just discovered that I can not compose messages in OE either. I can address them, enter a subject, but not get into the message body to type my message. Note also when trying to read messages when I move the curser over the message body an hour glass occurs along side of the curser as if another program is trying to load. No matter how long I wait the message never occurs. Using IE 6 with OE. It has been working fine for years up until the past week. Thought about trying IE 7.0 beta to solve the problem but being a beta am not sure if I want to try that. Still getting my email through my isp and Thunderbird but I need info from those saved messages in my folders. Any help with this will be appreciated.

My computer has a problem. All my .exe files do not work. I can't open any programs. Here is my question: I need to find all my e-mails in order to transfer them to another computer so I can reformat my drive. How do I do this? The computer is running XP with outlook express version 6.

Thank you so much.
 

A:How do I get outlook express messages?

Outlook Express keeps email in .dbx files...Inbox.dbx, Sent Items.dbx, etc. To find them, first make sure to "un-hide" hidden files by opening a folder, any folder, and going to Tools>Folder Options>View tab and putting a check mark in "Show hidden files and folders," click OK.

Then do a search of the hard drive for "*.dbx" (without the quotes, with the asterisk and dot). Since no programs will open, and you cannot, therefore, open OE>Tools>Options>Maintenance tab>Store Folder button to find out which folder it's using for email messages, your best bet is to save all .dbx files you find. After the reinstall, using OE's Import feature, figuring out which is the right dbx file is a matter of trial and error.

The address book, if you want to save it, is a .wab file. Same method as above only search for "*.wab" and save them all. Don't save "wab.exe"...that's just the executable and does not contain any addresses.

When you're ready to import the data back into OE, be sure to get all the Windows updates first. Often OE will refuse to import data until it has been updated to the same point the OE that created the data was.

Hi all,
I recall being able to add the "find and replace" option to OE a while back. I think it was linked somehow to Microsoft Word or Notepad which has this option. I would like to remove (<<) from forwarded emails directly in OE rather than having to cut and paste to notepad and remove the (<<). I know my old imac's OE had an option to "clean up text" or simular which removed all the quotes. I don't see this in todays OE for XP though.

I do recall there being a tweak that added this function though.
Thanks in advance,

Monker

A:Outlook Express Edit>find>(find And Replace?)

I've never noticed that option, in OE.Just a suggestion, but I find StripMail to be faster, than using Word.StripMail is a FREEWARE utility that: * Strips the characters ">" and "|" from forwarded e-mails. * Formats the text into paragraphs, making it easier to read. * Changes the text's right margin, by indenting. * Can be used with any e-mail client.

I have had my problem for some time and had a work around which is no longer applicable hence I get a white screen where message should be so I don't know what is being said.

My problem started about 6 or 8 months ago on Outlook Express. At that time I was using dial up and changed over to Earthlink.net with their e mail program Total Access. My problem immediately disappeared. One month ago I switched over to High Speed and the person doing the custom install saw I used Outlook Express so he reenergized (non computer word) the program. The custom installer saw my INBOX with about 30+ messages that go back a long way. EACH ONE LINE description was complete, meaning To: xxx,
From: YYY, Subject: ZZZ, and anything else that showns on the ONE LINE.

When I double click on one of the inbox messages I FIND MY PROBLEM! Everything that showed before is shown again, but now greyed out since it has to do with basics. HOWEVER, the text area (where the message should be) is 100% pure white. I have double clicked all 30+ messages and get the same thing,...a pure white screen.

I thought it might have something to do with installing SP-2 on my XP Home Edition BUT SP-2 was installed about 6 months ago and my e mail problem started about 8 months ago.
That is my problem! Can anyone offer suggestions?
 

A:No Outlook Express Messages Are Printed

Hi George-2

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

So if I understand correctly, you can send and receive emails ok.

The problem lies in that the messages you receive are blank inside?

If you run your mouse over the inside of the message, does anything show up in the highlighted/selected area?

Perhaps your fonts have a white color?

Are you able to create a new message and see the fonts inside?

Let us know.

When I turned my computer on this morning, Outlook Express locked up and had to be shut down. Upon restarting the program, I noticed that about a month's worth of mail was missing (from Oct 12 to Nov 15).

I've spent all day trying to find a solution. I've identified the location of the OE Files and tried copying the files from my inbox to another folder and then importing them. This resulted in duplicates of the files that were there when I started, but the missing messages were still missing.

I also tried renaming the old inbox, creating a new inbox, and copying the data from the old to the new and then using the new one. Interestingly, although I attempted to copy everything from the old to the new, the file size of the new one is much smaller. But my missing emails are still missing.

If anyone can recommend an inexpensive solution to this problem, I would appreciate it. We're a nonprofit animal rescue and the emails I lost included all of the applications on a litter of puppies I'm fostering, so I'm very anxious to recover them.

Thank you!

A:outlook express 6 compact messages

All of your email is stored in a single file on your hard drive. When you delete messages and empty the trash, the file becomes "fragmented" similar to how your entire drive becomes fragmented when you delete files and download new ones.

Clicking the OK button basically defrags your Outlook Express mail file. It MAY empty your trash folder, but other than that, it doesn't delete anything from your inbox, etc...

I would say that clicking OK and letting it run will not only clear up some space on your hard drive, it will make the message go away in the future.

A:Outlook Express 6 can't pull in messages

In your subject you say Outlook Express but in your post you say Outlook. Those are 2 different programs, can you clarify that. Version numbers may also be of value.

A general response would be to delete the emails at the server in case one of them is corrupt and stopping the others from coming in. If that is something already tried, perhaps you could also list everything else you tried. It would be helpful to not duplicate things that did not work. And are there any error codes?

Outlook Express stores emails in .dbx files. You would need to somehow move the files to the new computers, maybe CD-R/RW or a USB key. Then use Outlook Express' import feature to restore the emails. The address book is a .wab file and can be imported in Outlook Express as well. You can use the Search/Find to locate the files. The location of these files varies between Windows 9x and XP and the files are hidden in XP.

I hope this is a simple question...I have Windows 98 with Outlook Express 6. When I open my Outllook Express, it posts how many new messages I have that are un-read. I have been told, that if a virus/worm is in the message, it will be in my computer. So here is my question: When I open the listing page, which lists all the new "unread" messages in order, then the ones still in the listing as previously viewed, I notice the first message is displayed. Does this not cause a problem, if it is already open, as the first message always shows. In fact, when I try to delete, I cannot, unless I highlight the message, and it is pasted in front of me. How do I not open messages, just reading the heading, and using the delete button? Same with these messages when they are sent to the deleted folder???

Have you installed a firewall lately?

How is the email transfered? This could be a relaying problem and you probably should go ahead call your email administrator

Good Morning All,

For a few days I have been getting error messages (0X800CCC15/0X800CCC19/0X800CCCOD) and can't send or receive e-mails. I can access e-mails via webmail. I have contacted my ISP and re entered the e-mail settings to no avail. There was a vague mention of network issues, but nothing has been restored. I have uninstalled the Trend Micro security package but that did not help.

Does anyone have any suggestions, please?

Rob.

A:Outlook Express 6 Error Messages.

It appears that the problem is with the Trend Micro Pccilin package and I await a response from Trend Micro.

Hello. First, I am not very computer literate. (Sigh). (I'm old!) I have a problem with Outlook Express. It stopped allowing me to click on the hilighted New Messages and see them. It still receives messages, I just can't reach them, they don't show up in the inbox. I was able to finally find them manually, by going into Edit, then Find, then find messages in folder, and putting in a check by "find messages received before", then somehow lucked onto finding one, and it listed them.
I don't know what to do to get the thing to simply display the new messages in inbox. (It displays them in a darker ink).
I would appreciate any help.

I did call my provider, Adelphia, but they couldn't help.

Thanks!

I use Hotmail and have it as an account in Outlook Express. When I receive a Hotmail message, it shows up twice in Outlook Express. How can I keep it from doing this? (When I am in Outlook Express and go to Tools>Accounts>Mail, Hotmail is listed only once.) Thanks, grandpaw7

I don't use Hotmail, but it may be becuase Hotmail has a separate inbox. See Known issues with Hotmail

I'm trying to move Outlook Express message files from an old computer running Windows 98 to a new one running Windows XP. The version of Outlook Express in both computers is version 6. I tried using the backup/restore method outlined in the MS Knowledge Base, but it doesn't work. Any suggestions?

Outlook Express 6 has just decided to tell me that my messages are not being sent "Some errors occurred while processing the requested tasks" and keeps messages in the Outbox. However, the messages are being sent, but by being kept in the Outbox they are sent many, many times!

This started yesterday, with occasional errors, now it happens with every single email, from all of my accounts.

Has anyone experienced/solved this problem.

I use Outlook Express as an email client. Under 'Local Folders' I have probably 15 subfolders, and most of those have sub-subfolders, and some of those have sub-sub-subfolders.

Some messages vanished - I have no idea where they went.

For instance, I have a 'pending orders' folder as a subfolder to my inbox folder. Messages in the inbox stayed, but messages in the 'pending orders' folder have disappeared - the folder is empty.

Another example, I have a 'Nissan' folder under 'Local Folders'. The 'Nissan' folder is empty. I have an 'Orders/Net Stuff' folder with several subfolders. The 'Orders/Net Stuff' folder and all of the subfolders are empty.

I did not delete these messages, they just vanished. All in all, I have lost probably 2,000 messages out of the 15,000 messages stored. All the folders are still there, organized in the same manner, but some folders have been emptied.

I've checked the actual folder locations - For instance, "C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{EF678184-310F-4A05-B543-A23898D84F9C}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\Nissan.dbx"

The 'Nissan.dbx' folder shows it contains 51.9 MB of data... so the messages are still there. When I right click on the 'Nissan' folder in OE, it is pointed to the above address... so why don't the messages show up? Where'd they go?
