Thanks

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 ?!?

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

Howdy,

When I go to the deleted items section of Outlook Express I have 85 messages listed.

How can I delete all the messages at once ?

As of now I am highlighting the last message and clicking delete. I than get a pop up screen asking if I am sure I want to delete the message. I click yes and the message will be deleted and it moves on to the next message.

I would think there is a way (I just can't find it) to get rid of them all at once instead of going through the above process 85 times.

Could someone please advise me ?

Thanks for your time,

I tried doing what it said to backup all the messages by compacting the files, but I couldent find the file it compacted. It never told me where it put it, and dident let me name it.

After seening lots of files that matched the messages in OE I figured that I could save all these files, then replace them after reinstalling WINXPHE. The old operating system was WINXPHE too, the computer just needed to be cleaned up. Anyway, after placing them back in their original spot it wont detect anything like i was hoping, am I missing something? Plz help, I really need these to come back. Thanks in advance.
 

A:How do I restore old messages to Outlook Express

Hi MrFuzz

Almost there!
With Outlook Express closed, go back into that directory and delete the Folders.dbx file.
Restart Outlook Express, a new Folders.dbx file will be created and your folders and messages should show.

Check these steps:
In Outlook Express
Tools > Options > Maintenance tab
click the Store Folder button to see the path where the Identity keeps its .dbx files.
Close Outlook Express.
_____________________________________________________________

Open Windows Explorer, navigate to that directory, delete the Folders.dbx file for the Identity.

Move or copy the saved .dbx files into that directory.
Verify the file attributes are not Read-Only.

Restart Outlook Express, your folders and messages should appear.

Let us know what happens.

A:backup messages from outlook express?

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 have 2 problems:

1. Several days ago, instead of getting my messages at Outlook Express 6, I instead got this error message:

The server responded with an error. Account: 'Elaine', Server: 'pop.mail.yahoo.ca', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR problem retrieving message.', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC90

I called up my ISP and they said a message was either too long or corrupted. My incoming mail server is from Yahoo. I have things set up to have my Yahoo messages forwarded to Outlook Express. The tech told me to manually go to my yahoo mailbox and delete messages until my Outlook Express works. I did so and it worked. I thought the problem was solved. It wasn't. I keep getting that error. I started taking notes of what messages cleared the problem and it became obvious that it has nothing to do with the messages. Some are from friends and other e-mails I often get. It just happens.

Could anyone please help?

2. My system gets an error that it's going to shut off in 30 secs I believe is the time listed. It goes off too quickly to write down the error. This has been happening for a couple of months and restoring the computer to earlier didn't help.

In OE 6.0 I would like to remove messages from my deleted file by sender address in one fell swoop rather than clicking one each one and holding down the shift key. Is there a way of doing this. When I have used the block sender function, it not only deletes the message currently received but indicates that it has deleted all messages from that sender. Is this a key to the solution---or if not, what is? Thanks much.

A:Outlook Express Remove Messages

To delete multiple messages from a sender you first need to click on the column to sort by the sender(From heading). Then select the first and the last email while holding down the Shift key and then delete the emails. Note that if you are deleting emails from the Deleted Items folder you do not need to hold down Shift when selecting Delete. If you hold down Shift when choosing delete it permanently deletes the email from other folders like the Inbox or Sent but for the Deleted Items folder its kind of redundant. And as I mention above Shift can also be used to select multiple messages as can the CTRL key to pick and choose emails by holding CTRL down and clicking on each message.

Does anybody know how to copy and save outlook express messages in from Vista to another pc using XP?
 

A:Copying outlook express messages

Have a look in the file menu for Import and Export.

You should be able to export the messages then import them on the other machine, unless you mean you want to share mailboxes between both machines, in which case it isn't possible.

If you do want to share mailboxes, look at changing to using GMAIL (which can use to get email from other accounts too) then you can use Outlook express to view the email, but keep it stored online, meaning you can access it from both machines.

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?

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?

MY BIGGEST THANKS AND HUGS TO A CONTRIBUTOR NAMED THROOPER (?).

My Outlook Express 6 has been frozen for months now, can't delete messages due to worm. For several months, I've sought the help from my internet provider, to no avail.

So I found your site, I followed the instructions on erasing the DBX file and like magic, all the messages are deleted.

I am very joyful today after months of agonizing and fear of having to take my computer to the store for repair and costing me money.

The instructions on "pasting" and "running" the file were very easy to follow, esp. for a non-computer-savvy person such as myself.

It's the Authenticated password thing.You can receive mail but you cannot send it.

Then your message is stored in the "Sent" folder to be resend each time you activate your OE.You have not irritated your recipients.Most likely they never received it.
When using your OE:
(1)Did you put under Incoming mail...pop.(your isp name)
and
(2) Your Outgoing mail...mail.(your isp name) ?
(3) Are you the "Main User" ?
(4) What is your OS ?

Ok, I have about 400 messages that I deem inportant to me in my outlook express. I would like to save them to a folder on disk and refer to them if need be at a later date. How can I do this? Thanks in advance

A:save messages in outlook express

I have a folder created in My Documents entitled, of all things, 'Saved Emails'. I then click on the email I wish to save, click on 'File' and select 'Save As'. Then navigate to the folder in My Documents, open and click on 'Save'. Unfortunately I haven't figured out a way to save more than one email at a time.

Just my 2 cents worth

I've been having a strange problem lately. Whenever I try to open messages outlook express they are all blank. I've tried scanning with Spybot/Adware, and even Norton Corporate Ed. all were in vain. Not only are messages I recieve in the inbox are blank but junk mail, sent mail all blank. It may also have a connection to my burning software Nero 6.6 as it experienced problems around the same time, whenever I try to burn a data disk on express it crashes before I get to the menu where you select file you want to burn and I have to end process on taskmanager. Any advise is appreciated.

This seems to be the most common way to fix it, see if this helps:
Be sure OE is closed.
Click Start-->Run.
Type: regsvr32 inetcomm.dll
Note the space between the 2 and i.
Click OK.

When I receive a message with attachment that has been forwarded several times I have to open each message to get to the attachment. Is there a quick way to open the attachment without having to open each email?

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!

As the title suggests, I don't use Outlook Express, I use Outlook (2007), however, every time I boot up my laptop I get a pop up message from Outlook Express asking if it can compact my messages.

Can anyone advise how I make this go away or what I should do with it? I've seen other threads about it, but the only ones I've found refer to people who are actively using Outlook Express.

Thanks in advance.
 

A:I don't use Outlook Express....so why is it asking to compact my messages?

Hello - I thnk this is malware arising from hacking. I had this on mine and only ever closed it down. Yesterday in the midst of copying emails to put in a file, a microsoftoffice window opened and at speed higlighted the emails in my in box and removed them.

My uni checked - they are not in the archives

I am trying to get a message about this abuse through to miscrosoft - but can't find the site

Can't delete messages in Outlook Express 6 with XP. Hitting DELETE has absolutely no response - no message or anything. SHIFT-DELETE works. I tried completely reinstalling Internet Explorer 7 and Outlook Express with the same result. This is occurring concurrent with intermittently not being able to receive any messages - "encountered unknown error" - see previous posts and responses on this topic. Any ideas would be appreciated

A:Can't Delete Messages In Outlook Express

Sometimes that can happen if the Deleted Items folder is damaged.Move all messages you might want to keep out of the Deleted Items folder and into another mail folder you create. Close OE, then delete the file Deleted Items.dbx in your Identity's store folder. OE will create a new one when you re-open OE.
