Outlook Express hanging on inbox

  Shanks69 21:09 26 Apr 2003

after receiving mail, inbox will not open to display.

Using ME with OE 6, all updates in.

Only just started happening - no new software apart from updates to spyware blaster.

Any replies gratefully accepted, even from cross dressers.

You could try - moving all the files in your mail store folder, to a newly created folder - restart OE - when it will create a new empty, default set of folders. Then import all the data back from the folder you stored it is (use the File-Import wizard in OE).

After installing recent update Outlook would not 'see' providers. Went back to previous position and all OK. Tried again a few days later with same result!! Anyone got any ideas? Or is this another MS duff update?

I suggest you start a fresh thread - you won't get notified if anybody answers you here.

Do you mean Outlook, or Outlook Express? What do you mean by it can't see providers - do you mean your email account settings have changed, or it won't dial-up, or what?

You should disable your AV package before installing system updates - and especially you should remove email AV checking before updating your email software, as the two get very intertwined. Then don't forget to re-instate it afterwards!
