I've printed off your advice - as a very non-techy user I want to makle sure I understand the whole process and I have 3 immediate queries.

I'm using XP and the Install/Uninstall list of progammes does not include Outlook Express.

Looking at the registry instructions a file is saved in another location. Can this be put in My Documents? There is no subsequent reference to using it - is it recognised automatically?

Without OE appearing in the Install/Uninstall list how do I reinstall the latest version?

Still struggling with this.

A suggestion I'm following is that the cause is a corrupt file in the Inbox. I've moved essential ones to a folder in My Documents and deleted the rest - all apart from 3 that will not delete or move.

Is there another way to delete them?
