My friend just had her computer reformatted after a bad virus contamination. It is still running EXTREMELY slow but has at least been running correctly. She is running XP

Yesterday I installed Microsoft Office 2003 for her with Microsoft Outlook and now her email doesn't seem to be working. She uses Outlook Express as her mail default rather than Office Outlook but keeps getting the error message that it can't find the POP3.

I also installed AVG for her and have shut off the email plugin to see if that is part of the problem.

The thing is, it happened yesterday right after I installed these programs for her but then a minute later her email worked just fine. Now she just restarted her computer and the mail won't work again.

Is there something wrong with her computer or is it at the server?

I hope this all makes sense.

A:Solved: Microsoft Office Outlook vs Outlook Express?

If so, please post the exact message.

Is the Firewall allowing Outlook Express access to the Internet?

I have just got my computer back after having it reformated. I used to have Outlook Express, but the guy has put Outlook Office 2003 on it, and i don't like the set up
Is there a way i can reinstall outlook express?

A:outlook office 2003, want outlook express

outlook express should come with windows (i think its part of IE) so you should have outlook express on the PC

I'm surprised you have MSoffice on the PC, a very expensive product suite

have a look in program files and see if you have a folder called outlook express in there should be a file named msimn.exe

"C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe"

I would expect the program to be on the program list somewhere anyway

Just installed Office 2003 Professional on my laptop last night. I opened up Outlook and began to set up an email account for my "work" email via Microsoft Exchange Server. Well I suppose I did not input the information correctly, because now I get errors stating that my folders are not available, etc. That's all fine. The problem is that Outlook closes as soon as I "OK" or "cancel" these error messages. I can't even get into the program to delete this account. I have uninstalled Outlook and re-installed with no success. HELP!!!!!

If I understand you right you are just looking for the icon... if that is the case you can get the icon by going to the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11 and then sending the Outlook icon to your desktop. Hope this is what you are looking for.

Is there a way that I can automatically have it format it just to say "User" in the "To:" field, without having to add that user to my contacts? All I want is the recipients name in that field, as I'd prefer it to not display their e-mail address there as well.

I am upgrading lots of stuff here in the office, but I need to keep the inter-office email communications working between the old and the new.

We have a working system with Microsoft Mail Post Office that is located on a NT file server and can be administered from a win98 pc. We currently use this for inter-office email, and connect to the internet for all other email.

I am tring to configure Outlook 2003 to recognize the accounts in the post office using the Exchange Server. I am not able to get outlook to communicate.

The post office does not have a name, just a path to it. I put the path as the name of the Exchange Server and provided a valid User Name. When I "check name", I get an error. "The action could not be completed. The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action." I get a similar message whe I run Outlook.

How can I get this configured right? BTW, I can see the network path to the PO Box and have a drive mapped.

In Win7x64, Google email in the form of HTML source becomes mangled in Office Outlook (which I've substituted for incompatible Outlook Express).

To replace Outlook Express, I first tried Thunderbird, and then Eudora. Only Office Outlook, which is part of MS Office, had all the functions and options of Outlook Express that I like, plus formatting and organization features.

I could use Web Mail with Gmail or ATT-Yahoo, to which I have access, but I prefer getting my mail to my PC and keeping it there.

Task 'Hotmail: Folder:Inbox Synchronizing headers.' reported error (0x800CCC19) : 'A timeout occurred while communicating with the server.'

I did some trial and error work and realized that the problem is with the URL I'm using:

This address must be incorrect because when I put in "" instead, it allowed me to get through but only once. That means that the issue is not with my Outlook.

Is there another address and is anyone else having issues with the above address?

I just launched my email and I've lost everything. It looks like a whole new program has launched (Outlook Express 6), whereas I used to have Outlook 2003. The only thing I can think of is I needed to find my email password to set up email on my mobile, so I went to Start/Programs, but all I could find was Outlook Express 6. Perhaps an automatic update has taken place. Anyway, I went to Tools/Accounts/double clicked on my username/Servers, but the password was blanked out. I therefore killed the program, but when I hit the email button on my keyboard to launch Outlook 2003, Outlook Express 6 launched, which has no emails at all.

The only thing I can think that has changed since yesterday is my Norton 360 Antivirus software expired today and I intend buying an update tomorrow. Perhaps there's a connection? What do you think happened, are my old emails stored somewhere, and how can I restore Outlook 2003?


A:Solved: Outlook 2003 Suddenly Replaced by Outlook Express 6

When you launched Outlook express do you remember that box that came up and said something along the lines of:

"outlook express is currently not your default mail application, do you want it to be?"
and you clicked yes without reading it properly...?

Well it has done exactly that. You have two email apps on your computer, one of them has to be default. when you did that you changed it to outlook express. Luckily for you it is easy to fix.

All you need to do is go into the Start menu and find Outlook 2003 and run it. It will prob be under All programs > Microsoft Office> Outlook. Run it and then you will get the same prompt as you did for outlook express about making it the default app, choose yes to this. This will now make Outlook 2003 your default email app again and fix your problem.
Let us know if this works.

Folks I have read the MS tech notes on how to get Outlook 2003 [I have it via Office 2003 Professional, full install] to import from OE6. It fails under either option: import from "another program" or "Import Internet Mail....". Under the former it is pointed to the correct folder, but fails with Error: Cannot open,.. another program in use" but there's not... I tried copying the folder to a nice clean location on the C: and checked all the properties, nothing interfering, still won't open the folder.
Under the latter option it just doesn't do anything after directing it to the correct folder. Seems to accept the command, closes the window, but does not import anything. No error messages.

Umm.... do MS teams communicate with one another??

I have heard you can transfer the OE mail files over to Windows mail or gmail etc. Then transfer files from the new mail server to Outlook.
File system is changed over with the mail transfer- I haven't tried it though.

Hello everyone (And sorry for such a long thread title!)

One of the elderly gentleman where I work, has been given a Dell laptop by his Son that's running W7 64bit.

He has a copy of Office 2000 that he would like to install on this machine, and use the bundled Outlook from it as his default e-mail client. The only problem is, the current desktop PC he's using, is running Windows XP (unsure which version) and he's got Outlook Express as his e-mail viewing software on there at the moment.

Can the profile (sorry if that's the wrong term) from XP's Outlook Express be "ported" into the Outlook from Office 2000, whilst all of this is running on W7 64bit?

Many, many thanks in advance

That said, there may be workarounds to get it to work on 7, but that's probably more difficult then your original question. I'd think your friend would need a newer version, then revisit can it be done For instance:

I carefully followed all the steps for converting from OE 6 to Outlook 2003. I have just only one email account, so I have one password. After all the neccesary steps were followed to convert to Outlook, I used that same password and saved that for Outlook. (Outlook came pre-installed on the desktop with Microsoft Office 2003).

Now, I have OE 6 and Outlook 2003 both running at the same time. OE6 can receive email as well as Outlook. And they can both send email. I don't understand how to disable OE6 because I don't want to use it any longer.

gang I found an old post here that describes my situation, something I caused but don't know how to undo.
The system in question has Windows XP Professional, and MS Office 2000 Professional, the main reason for which is OUTLOOK. When Outlook cranks up it triggers an error message which is in my subject line:
"Outlook requires Microsoft Outlook Express 4.01 or greater....". The system of course also has OE6 on it which we don't use, but it does work etc.

The issue is me: I use autoruns to shut off everything non-mandatory, and, as another thread-poster identified, there is something in the list of goods that I have disabled that OE is dependent on, if I understand the old thread properly. The problem is that the poster [OP] in that thread said he found the key, but he didn't NAME THE ENTRIES
Thus, I dunno which ones he reversed that made the issue go away.

Had this error on a user's pc. Researched it here on the forum.
Found another thread with someone suggesting to use the following command to get it going:
Start->run..then type the following -> "Outlook.exe /resetnavpane"

This worked! The other thread has since been closed, but I wanted to reply and say WHY my users outlook suddenly started throwing out this error, because no one on the other thread was able to.

Turns out that my user had "accidentally" dragged their personal folder (containing 1000's of emails) into the "outbox".
Since the "outbox" folder is one to be used while an email is in the sending phase, it basically just shut down and wouldn't open for anything.

Luckily the command was able to get Outlook open and I was able to investigate what the user did to cause it.

Hope this info can help someone else.

How do I make Microsoft Outlook the default email program? I make the change in IE version 5, but when I reboot the system (Win 98), Outlook Express is once again selected as the default email program.

I read in a previous post about using the following sequence for making Outlook Express the default. Is there anything similar for Microsoft Outlook? :
To make Outlook Express your default e-mail client:
Close OE, click Start/Run and enter this command line, complete with quotes, spaces and the /reg switch:

"C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /reg

Recently I have noticed my Dell Vostro laptop has been very slow in booting to a point where I can actually do something with any speed.

I had been reading various forums regarding the problem and the general consensus was that removing unnecessary start-up programs would assist. This I did, and included in it was the removal of Outlook Express as a start-up as I never use it.

I was rather startled to find that the next time I started up Outlook I get the message indicated in the title. When acknowledging the message, Outlook still opens and functions correctly as far as I can see, but this message always coming up is getting a little tedious.

Why would a company require the lesser of two programs to be loaded and started in order that their more powerful program should work? Amazing thought processes at MS.

I have seen answers for this question elsewhere and I have tried their solutions but to no avail. That includes setting IsInstalled in registry key 881dd1c5-3dcf-431b-b061-f3f88e8be88a to a Dword value of 1.

What I have found, is the key {44BBA840-CC51-11CF-AAFA-00AA00B6015C} and {7790769C-0471-11d2-AF11-00C04FA35D02} in registry directory HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\AutorunsDisabled. As the first refers to Outlook Express 6 and the other to Address Book 6 I assume that this may have something to do with my problem.

If they are the problem, is there a way of moving these keys out of AutorunsDisable and back into Instal... Read more

Dear AllI am getting the above error when I try to open Outlook 2007 on Windows XP. There is a quick fix to this which is to run 'outlook.exe /resetnavpane', which I find from a quick internet search. However, this is a one time fix, and I am having to do it every single time that I boot up. Is there a more permanent fix to this problem - hopefully the fact that the above fix works will identify the root of the problem. If anyone knows this and can help I would be very grateful.

I have been using Outlook Express as my mail program. I get my mail from at&t Yahoo dsl web mail which stores the mail on the web mail server. I chose to leave a copy of the message on the server with outlook express. I've got an inbox folder in personal folders and favorite folders in Outlook 2003. Now when I wanted to use Outlook 2003 instead of Outlook express, it started to download all my messages, over 7,000 (270 MB)from the at&t yahoo dsl web mail server. I think it completed this once and the email showed up in the proper column in Outlook 2003. But the messages show up in blue letters next to the inbox as if they are unread but they do not show up the second time in the received email column as unread even though Outlook 2003 is downloading them again. I don't think I set outlook 2003 as my default mail program. I need to do that but don't know how.

I want to be able to export the mail from Outlook 2003 into some files that I can access easily later if I need to, such as importing them back into outlook 2003; but I don't want 7,000 emails exported that I have to open one at a time to know what they are such as I think is the case if you export your outlook express emails. I heard OE uses .dbx files which are not as friendly to retrieve as Outlook 2003 files which I think are .pst. But I don't know much about it or why I am having trouble with Outlook 2003.

Use the "Import" feature of Outlook Express. if you choose to import "All" folders, it will include all messages and contacts data. or you can choose to import only contacts and not messages.

Obviously, it requires that both Outlook & Outlook Express are currently installed on the same PC.
Go here for a short tutorial:

However, it must be pointed out that, for backup purposes, it's much easier to back up data in Outlook than is the case with Outlook Express.

It is possible and you can either export from the File menu in Outlook or import the same way using OE. However, if you already have problems, it may be that your data file is too big for Outlook to handle. Check this by opening My Computer and from the Tools menu, select Folder Options then View. Tick to "Show hidden files an dfolders" and untick "Hide protected system file and folders". Click Apply, accept the warning and OK your way out.

Next, navigate to Documents and Settings>{yourusername}Local Settings>Application Data>Microsoft>Outlook and if your Outlook Data File (type .pst) is larger than 2Gb, go back into Outlook and delete anything you can to trim it down.

Outlook Express will also suffer an overstuffed data file but if you can't do without your historic e-mails, Mozilla Thunderbird can handle up to 4Gb.

Hi.I posted this already but turns out when I looked down the list of forums I totally missed that there was one for internet and email, so posted it in the wrong one. Apologies for that, and hopefully someone here might be able to help. I recently had to get a new PC because my old one died a slow and painful death. My old PC ran XP, and I did manage to copy all my files off before the final curtain fell.My new PC runs Vista.I have a folder full of .dbx files from Outlook Express 6 (including the apparently-important 'folders.dbx'). I'm trying to import these files into Outlook 2003, which I've installed along with Office on my new machine (I tried windows mail and windows live mail but don't like the programs). I've followed instructions, but the program is getting to a point where I have to tell it where my files are stored, and then when I do it errors and tells me that it can't import because the location doesn't exist or the files are in use. The files are on my harddrive and are definitely NOT in use.Can anyone help me fix this please? It seems to be a known error but all the 'help' things I've found are assuming that the reason you're trying to import is because you've upgraded from OE to Outlook, and still have OE somewhere. I don't, I just have the files.Thanks

You won't be able to go back to 2000 (although you could go back to XP, since the files are the same). Outlook and Outlook Express are two unrelated programs. Outlook is part of the Microsoft Office System. Outlook Express is part of Internet Explorer. Microsoft make the naming mistake that they corrected with Vista. It's now called Windows Mail.

Well here's a switch! Doc's needs everyones help for a change.

My mom's computer cannot send and recieve mail on either M/O & O/E. Problem started this yesterday morning some time and I cannot seem to put my finger on the problem.

She runs XP Pro and lives 8hrs away from me, so anything I do is via "remote desktop" and she only has "dialup". Talk about a painful process!

When I click on send and recieve it appears that a connection is being made to the server and infact it even tells me how many messages are there to download. It then starts to download (or appears to) and then suddenly stops and posts an error message stating that the connection to the server was interrupted.

I ran a test on my computer by configuring my M/O using here inbound settings and such and was able to download all her mail without a problem. That leads me to believe the problem is not the server but, infact on her machine.

I have checked all the basic things that I can think of but, at the moment "I'm stumped"



A:Microsoft Outlook & Outlook Express

If she's running an antivirus package that does a virtual IP proxie for the incoming/outgoing email AV check, then that might be the source of the problem. Try disabling virus checking for email and see if the behavior changes (This is a known bug in Norton, McAffee, and Avast, but it's rather rare. Usualy only happens for large outgoing attachments).

Also, since this is Dialup, I would check the actual modem to see if there's a problem on the line (or wityh the hardware). To much noise on the line can lead to droped packets and/or decreased bandwidth.

Try using Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0 and see if there's still the same problem under that.

Hi All

I am beginning to think this is impossible but........I have spent the last 10 days or so getting really fed up with W8. My lovely old XP is dying so I thought I would upgrade (big mistake). However I have managed to get around all the problems it has thrown at me. I was just tidying up the homescreen when I espied an Outlook icon. I installed Office 2003 on the W8 PC (I really only need Excel, Word and Powerpoint and that version is good enough). The only problem I have now with W8 is that it will not work with a POP email account (I know, I know) but there is a work around that I managed to do using a GMail account, and that is okay I guess.

However as Excel etc seem to work fine, I wondered whether I could run Outlook on the new PC even though it is running W8? I got quite far, I set up the account okay but when I tried to import my old emails it told me it could not open the folder. I am wondering if this is because it searches for a file location that does not exist (at least that is what I found in the guts of Outlook) but equally I could have made a schoolboy error and it will work it is just I am doing something wrong.

Would be grateful for any help, but don't point me to the MS solution because I have tried that and it does not work. Perhaps it is not compatible but it seems odd that Excel and Word etc work okay.

hi, I was using Hotmail on my laptop and tried to switch to Office Outlook Express and when I try to open Outlook I get a message that it can't find the server on the network. Any ideas on how I can fix this. My desktop Outlook also went down when I made the change. Thanks Rick

Are you trying to check a Hotmail account with Outlook Express? If I remember right you'll need to have POP access with your Hotmail account to access it from OE.

I would like to create an out of office in Outlook 2003. I am not on an exchange server and do not have the proper files installed to save a template. My question is - is there a place I can download the templates needed in order to create a template to create an out of office by rule.

Thank you,

When I send an e-mail with an attachment (word file) the e-mail stays in the outbox and never goes to the sent items box. However, it keeps sending the e-mail to the recipiant and I think that it wasn't sent. Very annoying to the receiver when they receive 100's of copies. If I don't have an attachment, it's fine.
How do I correct this?... please.

I am hoping someone can shed some light on some problems I am having with outlook. 1. it is slow. 2. on launch, it always tells me the personal files were not shut down properly, and it goes through a 10 minute start up. 3. it doesn't clear the new email indicators ex: (3), after opening email. 4. suffers fatal errors and has to be shut down.

Help, please?

How do you configure Outlook to automatically check and download your E-mail when you start the program like Outlook Express does?

A:Outlook (Office 2003)

Sadly, you don't. Outlook, for whatever reason, has a delay between the time it looks like it's fully loaded and when it finally gets around to checking the mail. It's one of the reasons I went back to OE. I found that delay really annoying. That and I had no need for the calendar, task list and all the other features.

I am using Office 2002 together with Outlook 2003 (our Exchange server) and when I try to email from an Office document I get the following error message:
"Word could not load the e-mail envelope".
I have a clean-install (I did not install Outlook 2003 on top of Outlook 2002). When I installed Office 2002 I did not install Outlook 2002.

Any suggestions on how to get past this issue?

A:Using Office XP with Outlook 2003

No can cross versions...sorry.

To my knowledge, you can't use Word as the email editor if you're using a different version of Outlook.

And the exchange server doesn't *run* Outlook. The PC does. The exchange server is a different software.

Izzy, I have POP accounts from two different providers set up in my Outlook 2002 and one of them uses the default ports, while the other uses special ports I had to set myself. If there are any special ports needed other than the default, you would have to ask your service provider about them. Try going to their website, I would think they would have set up instructions for Outlook somewhere.One thing I have a question about is both your incoming and outgoing being The accounts I have set up in Outlook 2002 both are set up with the incoming being while the outgoing is Try changing the outgoing to and see if that helps.

Hi there,

For the last few weeks I've been using Outlook on my laptop and desktop PC by copying the PST file from one to the other.

I've been using Outlook out and about today on my Laptop - I've copied my PST file back onto my desktop and I've opened Outlook and got the message - CANNOT START MICROSOFT OFFICE. UNABLE TO OPEN THE OUTLOOK WINDOW. THE SET OF FOLDERS COULD NOT BE OPENED.....and makes a horrible noise.

I've tried Scanpst and although that opened Outlook all my Calender and most my emails were missing!

Obviously it's not disastrous as I can still use Outlook on my laptop at the moment so haven't lost anything.....please help!

Just loaded Office 2003 with OLE. I cannot get the email alert to work, however. I have all the boxes checked, but still nothing.

I am using it with Hotmail. I am wondering if somehow the Personal inbox is default instead of the Hotmail inbox, but I cannot figure out how to change that.

As always, any help would be appreciated!

Thanks (and Merry Christmas!)

I run XP Home and heavily use the full version of MS Outlook. I found Express an irritant and have tried to remove it before. In a quest to regain my 768 broadban speed (another issue) I'm trying to get rid of things that could conflict or tap the resources.I have 1.5 gigs of ram in my 4 year old desk top and adequate disk space. I use only 10 % running the Office Pro suite. I have a 9800 Radeon video card, Verizon for IP and run Uniblue's suite of Registry/performance enhancers and use Norton anti-virus. I turned off the Microsoft firewall so it didn't conflict with Norton's and shut off the antivirus program to download or install programs.Recently i again started receiving a dialogue box saying that Express can compress files for me. I got this message months ago and had removed what I thought was all of Express at the time. Now the message and several files are back. Those files include:msimn.exewab.exewabmig.exeoemig50.exesetup50.exeI don't know if these can be specifically removed without damaging Outlook itself or if these are unique for Express. Since wab is the "addess book" it worries me to just start deleting. The rest of the files in area are libraries and a .txt file and if they're not shared by Outlook can they be removed permanently and retain Outlook full version intact?msoe.txtwabfind.dlloemiglib.dllwabimp.dlloeimport.dllmsoe.dllmsoeres.dllI ran a patch for eliminating Express when I first attempted removal, but it seems to be reinstalling ...

Dear John,

It appears as though you no longer get long with your operating system. I hate to do this, but you must break up with your computer.
Computers are intelligent in nature and don't get along well with hopeless romantics that like things their way. You should started dating
a Macbook, they're easy and always give you what you want.

Sincerely yours,
The PC

Now, on to the matter at hand, please go into add/remove programs and then click on Add/Remove Windows Components. Uncheck Outllook express.
Let the computer do it's thing. When finished, restart the computer.

If OLEXP returns, we need to use more drastic measures.

Let me know what heppens.
