Q: Solved: Outlook Express Crashes

I had the problem of Outlook Express 5.5 crashing when downloading my email. I used my laptop to download it and my desktop has been working fine, until now. It is doing it again, crashing on the fifth email each time I try. I have a Pent II with 64 Meg of ram. I suspect memory problems since I am having problems running scan disk and defrag. I get banners that pop up when I am on the internet with no message inside, just blank banners. I have a dial up connection and I have noticed the computer trying to dial up the internet when nobody was or had been on the computer for a few hours.

I suspect a cookie or program that is using up memory and trying to send info about me over the internet without my permission and in the process, making my computer run slow and now messing up my email.

Any suggestions?

Sometimes when I open outlook express and attempt to connect to get my mail, the password box doesnt fully refresh or something and outlook kinda freezes up, their is like a blank box where the password box used to be and the outline of the connection status box is open behind it but no connecting, and no dialogue, just a blank box. Also, when I try to click the X on the box to close it, my mouse dissapears when it moves over the box, however i can still click the x. Whenever this happens, I can usually reopen outlook immeadiatly after and it works like normal. Whats up?
 

A:Outlook express crashes... or something.

Outlook Express is closely integrated with Internet Explorer so sudden squirrely behavior of either one makes spyware the first thing to suspect.

If you haven't already, download, install, immediately update and then run Spybot and/or AdAware. Read the help files to familiarize yourself with how they work. I recommend you use them both since each tends to find things the other misses. Let them clean up any spyware found.

Then, to be doubly sure, download and run CWShredder.

Please post back to let us know if that worked.

Nearly everytime I close Outlook Express it crashes. In fact there is a program named "msimn" (which I think is Outlook Express himself) which is still running when the program window is closed. Then it turns to "no response" and it can freeze my computer or most of the times my web browser.
I said "nearly everytime" because it doesn't crash everytime I close it. It's often when Internet Explorer is already launched.
This problem appeared some months ago but I don't know if it's consequent to any program installation.
My computer is two years old, 1Ghz, runs with Windows ME and has got 384 Mo RAM. It has got one drive separated in two ones of 22 and 15 Go. The first one is where Windows is installed and the second one is for documents. The first one has 9 Go free and the second one 3 Go.
My second problem is that I find it is too slow when comparing it to other 1Ghz computers. I think that it has to be infected by any small virus(es) that only slow it down and crash it sometimes. I give you here under the log of HiJackThis if you can find something strange in it.

Thank you !

Hi everyone,

Outlook Express V.6 SP1 keeps on crashing all the time while loading with the following message:

Unhandled exception in msimn.exe (directdb.dll)

I reinstalled Internet Explorer to no avail.

I reinstalled Outlook Express to no avail.

I reinstalled Windows XP to no avail.

I tried to rebuild the registry for Outlook Express to no avail

What do I do next? Buy a new PC perhaps?

I think the registry is corrupted but is there a way to bypass the registry checking?

If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled.

Hi,
can anyone give me a step by step description, how i can export my Emails and the Address book from Outlook Express 6 to another Computer which runs also Outlook Express 6?
I tried already to export the Address book but it only allows me to export it as a *.csv-File and after i put the data on my usb stick and try to import it on my new computer by File - Import - Addressbook, the program keeps asking me for a *.wab-File? (btw: i can only use the: "Text File (Comma Separated Values))" Option, when exporting the address book.

Export and Import from email messages doesn't work either.

Has anyone a really step-by-step description how to do this??

A:Solved: Import & Export from Outlook Express 6 to Outlook Express 6

Hi wizzle2003

When you are ready to Import the .csv file on the destination computer,
In Outlook Express,
File > Import > Other Address Book
You should then be given the option to choose a Text File (Comma Separated Values)
Then Browse to the .csv file to complete the Import.
Enable Show Hidden Files and folders:

Open My Computer,
Tools > Folder Options > View tab,
under Hidden Files and Folders, verify Show Hidden Files and Folders is selected.
Remove the check mark for Hide Extensions for known file types.
To locate the directory where Outlook Express keeps it's message store:
Tools > Options > Maintenance tab > Store Folder
Note the location, then Cancel out of the window.

Navigate to that directory, copy all the .dbx files to a folder on the Desktop.
Copy those files to a folder on the Desktop of the destination computer.
If you are using a Flash drive to transfer the files, it may take a couple of transfers to complete.

Once all the .dbx files are on the Destination computer,
Open Outlook Express,
Tools > Import > Messages > Microsoft Outlook Express 6 > Next
Select: Import mail from an OE 6 store directory
Click: OK
Browse to the folder containing the .dbx files on the Desktop.
When you reach the Finish button,
You should see a "Congratulations Your data was successfully imported"

If there is more than one Identity in Outlook Express, switch to the other Identities in Outlook Express and repeat the steps above.

I'm running Outlook Express 6 with Windows XP SP3.

When I click on a link in an email message, Internet Explorer fails to open and Outlook Express hangs, and I need to do a ctrl-alt-del to get out of it.

I've checked the problems listed in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q177054/ but that didn't make any difference, and I've also tried the advice I found elsewhere to go Start - Run REGSVR32 URLMON.DLL and reset Internet Explorer to default settings.

I've also found that the links to Windows Update in the standard windows Start menu don't work either.

gang I found an old post here that describes my situation, something I caused but don't know how to undo.
The system in question has Windows XP Professional, and MS Office 2000 Professional, the main reason for which is OUTLOOK. When Outlook cranks up it triggers an error message which is in my subject line:
"Outlook requires Microsoft Outlook Express 4.01 or greater....". The system of course also has OE6 on it which we don't use, but it does work etc.

The issue is me: I use autoruns to shut off everything non-mandatory, and, as another thread-poster identified, there is something in the list of goods that I have disabled that OE is dependent on, if I understand the old thread properly. The problem is that the poster [OP] in that thread said he found the key, but he didn't NAME THE ENTRIES
Thus, I dunno which ones he reversed that made the issue go away.

if anyone knows, pls let me know, so I can fix my goof.

Hi,
Recently I have noticed my Dell Vostro laptop has been very slow in booting to a point where I can actually do something with any speed.

I had been reading various forums regarding the problem and the general consensus was that removing unnecessary start-up programs would assist. This I did, and included in it was the removal of Outlook Express as a start-up as I never use it.

I was rather startled to find that the next time I started up Outlook I get the message indicated in the title. When acknowledging the message, Outlook still opens and functions correctly as far as I can see, but this message always coming up is getting a little tedious.

Why would a company require the lesser of two programs to be loaded and started in order that their more powerful program should work? Amazing thought processes at MS.

I have seen answers for this question elsewhere and I have tried their solutions but to no avail. That includes setting IsInstalled in registry key 881dd1c5-3dcf-431b-b061-f3f88e8be88a to a Dword value of 1.

What I have found, is the key {44BBA840-CC51-11CF-AAFA-00AA00B6015C} and {7790769C-0471-11d2-AF11-00C04FA35D02} in registry directory HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\AutorunsDisabled. As the first refers to Outlook Express 6 and the other to Address Book 6 I assume that this may have something to do with my problem.

Hi,

I just launched my email and I've lost everything. It looks like a whole new program has launched (Outlook Express 6), whereas I used to have Outlook 2003. The only thing I can think of is I needed to find my email password to set up email on my mobile, so I went to Start/Programs, but all I could find was Outlook Express 6. Perhaps an automatic update has taken place. Anyway, I went to Tools/Accounts/double clicked on my username/Servers, but the password was blanked out. I therefore killed the program, but when I hit the email button on my keyboard to launch Outlook 2003, Outlook Express 6 launched, which has no emails at all.

The only thing I can think that has changed since yesterday is my Norton 360 Antivirus software expired today and I intend buying an update tomorrow. Perhaps there's a connection? What do you think happened, are my old emails stored somewhere, and how can I restore Outlook 2003?

A:Solved: Outlook 2003 Suddenly Replaced by Outlook Express 6

When you launched Outlook express do you remember that box that came up and said something along the lines of:

"outlook express is currently not your default mail application, do you want it to be?"
and you clicked yes without reading it properly...?

Well it has done exactly that. You have two email apps on your computer, one of them has to be default. when you did that you changed it to outlook express. Luckily for you it is easy to fix.

All you need to do is go into the Start menu and find Outlook 2003 and run it. It will prob be under All programs > Microsoft Office> Outlook. Run it and then you will get the same prompt as you did for outlook express about making it the default app, choose yes to this. This will now make Outlook 2003 your default email app again and fix your problem.
Let us know if this works.

I carefully followed all the steps for converting from OE 6 to Outlook 2003. I have just only one email account, so I have one password. After all the neccesary steps were followed to convert to Outlook, I used that same password and saved that for Outlook. (Outlook came pre-installed on the desktop with Microsoft Office 2003).

Now, I have OE 6 and Outlook 2003 both running at the same time. OE6 can receive email as well as Outlook. And they can both send email. I don't understand how to disable OE6 because I don't want to use it any longer.

What do I need to do to have only Outlook 2003 running as my email account?

Yesterday I installed Microsoft Office 2003 for her with Microsoft Outlook and now her email doesn't seem to be working. She uses Outlook Express as her mail default rather than Office Outlook but keeps getting the error message that it can't find the POP3.

I also installed AVG for her and have shut off the email plugin to see if that is part of the problem.

The thing is, it happened yesterday right after I installed these programs for her but then a minute later her email worked just fine. Now she just restarted her computer and the mail won't work again.

Is there something wrong with her computer or is it at the server?

I am an old guy. I tend to like Outlook Express. Some years ago I finally got it customized in terms of text size and layout the way I like. I am used to it. But, it seems to have some kind of fatal flaw - that every year or so MS OUtlook Express's InBox gets corrupted and makes either or both sending or receiving email no longer possible. It is as if after working properly for a year or two the InBox file gets to a certain size and goes haywire. Is there any remedy for this? Is there a more stable version of Outlook Express or another mail program that is very similar but more stable than OE that I can import my settings into?

Greetings:

Here is the dilemma du jour:

Client using MS OE. We are setting up a new computer for her, and she will now be using Outlook. She has amassed hundreds of emails and saved them in folders in OE. She now wants the same folders and those emails imported into her new machine and into MS Outlook. I was sucessful in importing the address book, but that was all. They are not using MS Exchange server.

Guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hello

I have had issues with my OE the last couple of days with it locking up as soon as I open it. So I decided to use Outlook 2000 but while making the transfer, I BELIEVE it used another identity on my computer and did not transfer all of my OE folders.

I know these are dbx files..they are currently located by going thru the windows explorer procedure..is there a way for me to get them into Outlook 2000? I also understand Outlook 2000 uses a different format for it files.

Also, if I upgrade to XP SP2, will I get my Outlook Express back and working?

Thanks for your help...

I've installed Office 2003 on my PC - all working fine, mail migrated to Outlook etc. However, when I send an attachment from any program (Excel, Word etc) using the File, Send To command (which I have to do, because one is an Access database and so it's an embedded command) it defaults to Outlook Express.

I've tried renaming the msimn.exe file, which merely greyed out all of the options in the Send To box.

Anyone know how I can get them all to look to Outlook?

Thanks

I use outlook express to get email from Yahoo using the pop server there.

Every once in a while, the program (outlook express) tries to condense my message files, but I get an error saying something else is using the files, (outlook) or something.

Question: how can I find out what else is accessing the files of outlook express, so that the thing can do its maintenance?
Or does anyone know what other programs would access those files?

Thanks.

Now, both my mom, and I are getting the same error message. We get it when we exit outlook express, and it tells us it needs to compact the files to save space.. we tell it to go ahead, and then it runs thru its stuff and we get this error at the end..

Can anyone tell me why, or what to look for, to correct this problem? Thanks.

We have a user that is unable to open Microsoft Outlook without supplying his mailbox password and his .pst password. He has Windows 95 with the SR2 version installed. We have checked "save password for future" but it does not keep it. Also under Tools, Services, Microsoft Mail, Properties and Logon, the check box for "when logging on, automatically enter password" is not enabled. Any ideas?
 

A:{SOLVED} Outlook Express

Assuming you know all the local password, try doing a Find, Files for *.PWL and deleting them all. Reboot, and make sure you log on using the same name and password that you are trying to access OE with.

Normally when I open OE , a board opens asking which account I want to access. Ever since I installed service pack 2, OE opens to the last account used.

For example, when my wife closes her mail account, then I go to check my mail ,it opens directly to her account..

I've tried the following ,from a Microsoft web site:
1.
Click Start, and then click Run.

2.
In the Open box, type regsvr32 urlmon.dll, and then click OK.

3.
Repeat step 1 for each of the following commands:
regsvr32 mshtml.dll
regsvr32 shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 browseui.dll
regsvr32 msjava.dll

Hi jvpele

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

This script will force Outlook Express to ask for an Identity when starting:

Let us know if that helps or not.

In Outlook Express:
File > Identities > Manage Identities
Is the check mark cleared from: Use this Identity when starting a program?

Is OE-6 supposed to show new email coming in while you are already in OE-6 reading other mail? I thought mine used to do it but I'm not sure now. I have been expecting and waiting for an email that it didn't show but when I closed out and immediately reopened OE-6, I had 3 emails. This has happened about 4 times now. When I had AOL, it would announce when I would have incoming mail.

Twice a month I need to send an e-mail to 14 people. I now click on each name individually from my contact list to set up the current e-mail. Is there a way to enter the 14 names into a blank e-mail and save it, so I call it up each time I need it without clicking on all 14 names? Thanks for any help.
 

A:Solved: Outlook Express help

While you could make a blank email pre-addressed to your 14 people, or you could even make a email template (having whatever usual things you usually sent) pre-addressed to those 14 people, why not just make a Group of the 14 names?

Just Open your AddressBook and select New>New Group and add those 14 names, which you can select from your AddressBook.

You will see the name you used for the Group as BoldGroupName. Any email you make will show the Group name before you send it. Once it is sent the Groupname will be expanded and all the real email names will appear.

Combining the making of a template, along with being pre-addressed to Groupname would be better yet.

My wifes computer is only used for e-mail and today she called me as the mouse was frozen. Well I couldn't get the taskmanager or anything else to open so simply turned it off. I rebooted and went to open Outlook Express and the Outlook Express splash screen came up but it didn't open. I opened task manager and the msimn.exe was on the list and just kept growing in size in it's memory use. When it got to over 400,000 in size I shut it down and rebooted again, however have the same problem. I also noted that msimn was all in caps, which I don't think is typical, at least it isn't on my computer.

Would apprecaite any suggestions as to the cause and solution.
