OE - Send /Rec button greyed out and can't use

  Barnacarry 09:42 30 Sep 2007

When outlook Express is brought up, the send and receive button is grey and unusable as well as Tools/Send and Receive buttons. Any help appreciated.

In Tools > Accounts > Mail > Properties > General. Make sure that your mail account has the 'Include this account option' ticked.

I've just gone into Tools/Accounts/Mail and have discovered that it is empty. No accounts at all. This is a new computer and I recently used ABF Outlook Express Backup 2.0 to copy email files from my old comp to this one and everything worked fine until this morning.

When I copied these files over, there were 4 files showing which were'nt copied - WAB.reg, Main Identity.reg, IAM.reg & HKLMOutlookExpress.reg. I clicked on each one and was asked if I wanted it to be added to the registry and I clicked OK. I have tried to locate these files in Regedit but it comes up blank.

So you need to set up your ISP's POP and SMTP settings

I have just used system restore and everything back to normal. Thank you.
