    Hi All,

    For some unknown reason my Outlook Express has stopped working. After investigation it seems I have renamed one of the files contained within the Outlook folder(!) and the name of this file appears as just "

    Here are all the files contained within my Outlook, if anyone can point me in the right direction I would be eternally thankfull.

    msimn.exe
    oemig50.exe
    setup50.exe
    wabmib.exe
    9xmig.dll
    csapi3t1.dll
    msoe.dll
    msoeres.dll
    oeimport.dll
    oemiglib.dll
    wabfind.dll
    wabimp.dll
    "
    Outlook Express
    msoe.txt

    The version of Outlook that I have is 6.0. Would I be better just to install a newer version of this software (and if so, where would I get this from?) or try and retreieve the missing file from somewhere???

    Cheers,

    C h r e d g e.

    Compared to my OE folder, you have a wab.exe missing.
    And a wabmig.exe, that was probably just mistyped.
    Try renaming that strange file to wab.exe, and scan it with an antivirus.
    Look at its properties. If it has a version number like 6.00.2800.1123 (mine is such, but it may differ from yours) then it might just be so simple.
