    When trying to open outlook express 6 on an 98se os I get a message saying that msoe.dll not found could not load. The dll is in the C:\program\outlook express Dir. Thought maybe it was corrupt so deleted it and grab a copy of it from my backup drive, still can't open outlook express. Did an internet repair, a virus Scan with both norton and avg. Nothing has changed on my system all I did was try and go through my morning puter routine.Please help I live by e-mail......Thank you

    Check out this link: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;232480

    If it dosen't fix it then you might wanna go ahead and re-install the Outlook Express. This error message comes up with several OE problems.....

    You did try an IE repair in add/remove programs, right?

    Hope it helps!!

    I also read somewhere that maybe this can be caused by the >dbx files marked as read only. When I went to check them I found no .dbx files.

    Hi brindle

    Your inbox, outbox, sent items etc are .dbx files- hence inbox.dbx outbox.dbx etc

    Go to start\find files and type in

    *.dbx

    see what you get

    if these are deleted windows should make new ones when you reboot

    Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel.
    Double click Add / Remove programs.
    Find Microsoft Internet Explorer and Internet Tools and single click it, then click add/remove at the lower right.
    Select repair and see if that helps.

    Hi brindle

    Follow this path and see if you find any .dbx files there ?

    C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Identities\{16213920-ECA6-C5930914B54C}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

    If there is a "folders.dbx" delete it and reboot

    Go to C:\Program Files\Outlook Express

    What happens when you click on "msimn.exe"

    Right click "msoe.dll" click "properties" - what is the version number ?

    steam

    P.S. This is a different link to the one posted by dtugg, have you seen it ?

    okay to all that were so helpful the problem has been resolved. It was actually my neighbors puter that I built and she just got rid of aol. Well that wonderful isp changed all her dbx files to another and varing ext. I changed them all back to dbx and now everything works fine. thanks to all of you for the help
