Outlook Express corrupted

by dom_rp In reply to Outlook Express corrupted

You do not say why you want restore oe, i will presume it is corrupt. The first thing you need to do is to save your address book, messages and any rules that you currently have in a folder on your Hard disk (desk top is better),
You would need to remove the current version of oe and all the registry keys associated with oe,but i suggest you go to the microsoft website and download a tool that helps you to do this.
then you install a fresh copy of oe. from the control panel, add programs> addwindows components.

Well, what happened is I reloaded win98 2nd ed. and it put IE 5.0 and OE 5.0 on again. I then inported my address book and copied the .dbx files from my previous OE. What then happened is OE would not open anymore. Only errors. I forgot that my OE prior was 6.0 and I copied the .dbx files into the 5.0 version. I suppose that is what screwed up the application. I will try your suggestion, but you did not tell me what utility to download from Microsoft ??? Could you tell me ??
Thanks,
Darrell
