Outlook Express Error

  Lettervanman 10:53 30 May 2005

My friend can not open any emails in OE. This has suddenly happened,he can download the messages but gets "error unable to open" with no error numbers when he clicks on the header.
This also applies to messages in deleted folder and draft folder, which he has been able to open previously.
Any ideas please?

Outlook Express and Internet Explorer share many files. Perform a repair of Internet Explorer. From Control Panel select Add/Remove Programs. Scroll down to Microsoft Internet Explorer and highlight it. Click on the Add/Remove button. When the IE Tools menu comes up, select Repair. Click OK.

Also, you can get to the IE Tools menu by clicking Start > Run and type

rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance

If still no joy, uninstall and reinstall Outlook Express.
