 OutLook Express Freeze, (sounds like a new product Post a Reply  
From: Ari on 06/27/1999
My brother sent me a signatured e-mail and ever since then when I start the program, and if the highlight or curser is on his name at the vary top, It freezes and I must Ctrl Alt Delete, and cry for hours.

I wen't through your answers in and found out that I have no pst files.

Oh god I just need to get rid of my brothers e-mail without needing the Office Disc because my stupid computer company PATRIOT Computers never gave it to me.

I can't afford to lose all my filed e-mail. OH GOD PLEASE HELP ME...

I have recently added two more hard drives to my pc. I backed my e-mails to one of the new drives and reformatted my original drive. The problem is that now each time I want to access my backed up e mails, a dialogue box pops up asking to what it should be associated. How can I solve this.? Please Help.

*.PST files have nothing to do with Outlook Express. They are the storage files of Outlook 97/98/2000.

I am not GOD, but I will try to help anyway, OK?
Do exactly what I write and you should get rid of this terrible file:

Open Outlook Express

Rightclick on "Local Folders"

Select "New Folder" and give it the name "Temporary Inbox"

Click on "Inbox" and drag and drop all mails except your brothers one from "Inbox" into "Temporary Inbox"

Now your Outlook Express probably will crash. OK: Reboot your Computer and open Outlook Express again.

Click on Tools / Options / Maintenance / Store Folder and have a look, where your files are stored. Write down the location and *close* Outlook Express. That is very important!

Go to this folder (Probably anthing like "C:\WINDOWS\AppliclationData\Identities\{aLoToFnUmBeRsAnDlEtTeRs}\Microsoft\Outlook Express", but the path may be completely different depending on your Setup).

Delete the File "Inbox.dbx".

That's all!

When you re-open Outlook Express a new folder "Inbox" will be created.

Now you can either move the files from "Temporary Inbox" to "Inbox" or you can create other folders like "Mails from my Brother" or "Mails from my friend".

Hope this helps
ah

If you notice, most of the problems are fixed by re-installing the Outlook program. I know that's a problem as you said, but here goes anyway.... (you should call those guys and have them send a disk pronto). I would also do a back up of all installed programs on your computer, they should have supplied you with the program to do that, or at least gave you a original disk of them.

I would save my mail files (and / or EXPORT them, see below) and any other important stuff (you should be doing a back up on a regular basis anyway), and then re-install Outlook.

See if that fixes your problem. If it doesn't, you could try EXPORTING all your mail messages (in and out boxes) to a text file that you can read later with a word processor, check that they are all there, then simply delete the original mail files and Outlook will make new ones the next time you run it.
