    I have the same problem on both WLM and OE. Occasionally an incoming email will not open, but will give the message "Please wait while Windows configures Office 2000 Small Business". I don't have Office 2000 on the computer, though I think I did when I first got the computer, before I upgraded to Office 2007.

    After that screen I then get a series of windows popping up and depending on the sequence in which I click the red crosses in the top corner of them or the cancel button it results in it either closing down the utility or letting me open the email as though nothing had happened. I haven't established a common theme in which emails it does this to and which it doesn't; it seems quite random, but there is probably a common cause I haven't found.

    Can any one shed any light on what is happening here and more importantly how I can stop it happening?
