I need to be able to post the Outlook Express Icon onto my Desk Top.
An error in deleting the wrong Icon caused me to deleted it. I need it back. How do I do it? Thank you, Paul Morris hilton
We are getting the error message, "Outlook express could not be started because another instance of it is still running on your computer". I have followed your instructions up top (installing newest version of IE) but no change. There are actually two error messages we are getting. When we click the OE icon, OE opens up in the Local Folders screen and a pop up message says, "The folder could not be created. A folder name must contain at least one character." Then when we click the "OK" button, the error mentioned above pops up. When we click the "OK" button there, the 1st message pops up and it turns out to be an endless cycle that can only be ended through "End Task" in Task Manager. Any assistance you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
NOTE: You must be logged on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group in order to perform this procedure.
Click Start , click Run , and then type the following command:
NOTE : There are no spaces at all in the preceding command line.
Click OK to open the INF folder.
Locate the file MSOE50.inf .
Right-click the file, and then click Install . This will reinstall the files that Outlook Express needs to proceed normally.
It will ask you to put your windows XP cd in the drive, just browse to the i386 folder when requested.
Its really nice.
excellent, a great help. thank you very much.
I keep getting the error message....the host "SMPT" could not be found. Account pop3 server "SMPT",protocal: "SMPT",port:25,secure(SSL):No,socket error:11001,error number:0x800CCC0D...when i try to send messages. How can i fix this.
You do not have your SMTP server name configured correctly. Check with the settings you would have gotten from your ISP and make sure that your mail program is configured properly.
This is the error message:
Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include
server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account:
'pop3.nts-online.net', Server: 'pop3.nts-online.net', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '+OK
1421 octets', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F
I know I have the right pop3 and smtp. I have other computers and the email works on those. When I add other emails to the outlook express they dont work either. I have reinstalled outlook express and it still does not work. I then tried installing IE 7.0 but no help there either. I sure could use some help. thanks
Dude, you nailed it. What an incredible help! Thanks!
