    I am receiving the following message when trying to close OE version 6 (on a win xp Home system)

    The instruction at "0x77f536f9" referenced memory at "0x007f4d3c". The memory could not be "written". Click on ok to terminate the program.

    Anybody know what on earth this means ?

    thx in advance:)

    My thoughts on this are:

    1. You need to clean out your Sent Mail folder (you'd be surprised how full that can get with just text messages)

    2. Empty out your Inbox folders and definately empty out the Deleted Items folder.

    3. In the case of #1 & 2, the .dbx files are the files that contain all of your mail (inbox, deleted, sent, etc). When you don't delete them, those files get bigger and bigger and possibly can't write to them any longer as they are so huge.

    4. Like the MS article also suggests, that one (or the only) identity (the user name you log into OE with) has become corrupt in the Registry. The only solution it seems is to follow their steps and fix it there. But be sure to back it up first.

    Thanks for that !

    I do tend to keep work related email in a seperate folder. Maybe its time to give this a spring clean. I do empty the 'deleted' and 'sent items' folders regularly though.

    I'll also look into the possibility of a registry problem

    Thanks again

    I am having a similar prob. to Ian T. above. Instruction at Ox77f52004 referenced memory at Ox0007f4770. Memory could not be "written". I recently had to reinstall Windows from the recovery disks. I use freeserve as ISP. I have emptied the Deleted items folder and uninstalled AVG but the Application error msimn.exe with this message still comes up when i close Outlook Express. What do I try next? Why is it happening?

    Followup to question above. I got the solution from Freeserve help online altho' it did not sound like the answer to the question I asked!
    I went into O. Express,then View, then Layout and removed tick from Infopane box ( what's that for?), clicked Apply and OK and there it was gone and has not come back-yet!
    By the way, I am a "silver surfer" not a junior member-must have ticked a wrong box here as well!
