I'm running XP and using Outlook Express6 with IE6. My OE has been contaminated by something for a long time, won't always keep a copy of my outgoing e-mails, won't put deleted e-mails in the deleted file, and will seldom keep a copy of e-mails that I reply to. I've had people look at this problem, seems I'm missing some files and it can't be corrected. I'm anxiously awaiting IE7 and thus OE7, which might solve my problem. Perhaps unrelated is my Blocked Sender folder; it has mysteriously been emptied. I usually add three or four every day, never checked, assumed it was happening. I checked today! Not only is nothing new going in, I had at least 400 in there. Poof! Any ideas, or shall I wait for OE7 and hope for the best. Sorry for the wordiness, I'm not puter compatible!

Here is a fix for the Block Senders List. This should fix it unless your OE is totaly caput.



This is stored in the registry and has probably become corrupted. Open regedit.exe and delete this key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\{GUID}\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0\Block Senders

where GUID is the long number identifying your Identity. After rebuilding the list export that key so that you can restore it should it become corrupted again.
