I accidentally deleted my Outlook Express address book. Now I cannot send outgoing e-mail. The messages say that I need to re-install it, but when I try to do that using the latest update from the Microsoft website, it says that I have a newer version of Internet Explorer and will not reinstall.

Evidently Outlook Express is part of Internet Explorer and cannot be installed separately.

How can I get an address book so my Outlook Express will work correctly?

I really don't think just adding an address book file will help you because if I am not mistaken, Outlook Express usally creates a new blank address book if it doesn't find one in the default directory. If you want to give it a try anyways, I have attached a blank address book to this message. Just save the attachment and change the file extension from .txt to .wab and then copy it to the directory that normally contains your Outlook Express Address Book. The path will be something similar to what I have typed below. If you can't find the path, just search for the directory called "Address Book" and dump the file into there. What is the exact error message that you are getting?


LOCATION OF ADDRESS BOOK

C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR USERNAME\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book
