    To whom It May Concern:

    My problem is, I cannot send an e-mail from a web site. I get a messaage something like, "cannot find or load". I don't remember the exact wording.

    Please help me.

    Firstly Hi !! Scott

    [tsg=welcome][/tsg] ;)

    What version of O/E are you using?

    Is it just sending email from a website or websites in general ?

    Otherwise your email functions correctly ?

    Could we just have a few more details, 'am sure someone will be able to help.

    Nowhere near enough info. See if you can get the exact error message, the version of IE and the version of OE and the OS you're using.
    That said - have you tried the internet explorer repair tool?
    How many profiles are there in OE? Do you run (or have you uninstalled) an AV which intercepts mail to scan it (eg. Norton)?

    I also get this message at times. The wording is: Can't Create the Item
    As I have Outlook set as my default mail in Internet Explorer, I have found that I must launch Outlook before I launch my browser if I intend to eMail from the web. It does not resolve itself if you launch Outlook after the fact.
    If I set HotMail as my default eMail Program, this does not happen.

    (I use WinME, IE6, Outlook2000 ... but have found that this happens on other versions as well)

    does this quick fix help scottg5700?
