Outlook 2003 email does not open

By preemarose ·
I have saved a Outlook 2003 email but when I double click it to open the Outlook application flashes on the bottom but no email opens. I have tried copying the email back into Outlook but it does not appear there. Your help would be appreciated. My operating sys is WinXP Pro

You don't save emails like that.

If you have an email and select the 'save as' option under file, it should want to save it to your 'My Documents' and probably default to a .htm file.

So when you try to open it, it should open in a web browser. Not Outlook.

If you have changed some of the settings with Outlook your files may be saving as a different format please advise what that format is!

I have the same issue

I was researching for a solution to the same problem and found this discussion. I don't have an ultimate solution, but I do have a work around. If you close the outlook application first and open the saved email, it will open the message. You may see a messagebox that comes up and say outlook faced an error and all that, but hey, atleast you can view the email. Don't ask me why.
