Hi Tried a few of the ideas, didn't fix. However I have just opened OE from the XP start menu and it closed without the problem. I deleted and then put back a shortcut to the desktop and the problem ocurred again using the shortcut. Any ideas? Thanks
Sorry, last message sent too early. Continuing on I was going to say that I get the error if I open Outlook Express from the desktop shortcut. If I open it from the Internet Explorer toolbar I don't get the error.
