Msimn illegal operation in directdb.dll

By cruffin ·
After "upgrading" to IE5 w/Outlook Express 5.50.4133.240, OE opens, I receive all email and can read, open, save attachments and email is marked as read. When I try to manipulate (move, delete, forward, whatever) the email, I receive this illegal operation message: "Msimn caused an exception c00000006h in module DIRECTDB.DLL at 0177:5f5844e7." Then the registers and a stack dump, and OE terminates. My inbox is overflowing - any suggestions? This is on a Win98SE AMD-K6 300.

Sounds like Outlook express 5.5 has a conflict with windows. I'd try to re-install your OS, (Win 95, 98, ME, 2000, NT) this will fix a conflict 95% of the time. Theres a catch, you'll lose all of your previous E-Mails and you will need to reinstall all of your programs again (MS Office, Utills and Applets).

Good luck and let me know how it goes.
