  1. This solution worked fine to me.
    Thanks:)

  2. I UnInstalled Internet Exploder 8 Beta via Control Panel (In Win XP) and Bingo my Outlook Express Started to work again!

    The problem (I think) is that stupid new WebMail that MS tries to shove down everyone’s throat. I used it before when I used to have Vista installed I got rid of Vista because of lot of reasons… one was webmail.
    Any way I think as long as the idiots are in centers of power that is the status quo …they want their employees to be “productive” no matter what kind of garbage they put out? come on have these ppl ever heard of creativity before? MS thinks they are getting their money’s worth!?
    LOL :D

  3. The uninstalling Outlook Express did not work. I still get the annoying archive message on start. Also all the files are still on my Outlook Express folder. If I drag or delete the msimn.exe file, it just reappears aotomatically in the same folder.
