    Installed Windows ME. Since then I am unable to send email from outlook express. The program just freezes. No changes were made.

    What gives?

    No. None of those work. I can read email, I just can't send email. The whole program just freezes. The only way to get out of it is to ctrl-alt-del.

    Thanks.

    Hmm. Did you do the cleaning I suggested? Let me know if you need help. Do you have different identities set up? Click on tools>accounts>click your mail handler>click properties>make sure all of the information is correct.

    Try this:

    Close Outlook Express.

    Now go to Start/Find/Files and Folders, and do a search for your Outbox.dbx file, and delete it.

    Start up Outlook Express. A new Outbox.dbx will be created.

    Tell us what happens.

    Good luck,
