  • 1. IMAP folder slow to purge
    In addition to the usual POP accounts, I have one IMAP account set up in OE, which retains messages not on my whitelist. At the end of each day this folder typically contains about 100-200 spams which I delete and purge. Until recently this was a very quick process require only a couple of seconds, but lately the purge process takes 10 to 20 seconds, where the messages slowly disappear off the screen, and the message area is then gradually rebuilt (scroll bar slowly increases in size and finally disappears). Is there a reason for this sudden change of behaviour? Is there a fix?

  • 3. Multiple Identities in OE6
    I'm running OE6 on Windows ME. My original email address is now attracting >200 spam a day (did some silly things in the mid 90s). So I set up an additional identity under OE6 with the same ISP and account, but with a separate email address. The plan was to tell all my main contacts to use the new email address, but leave the old address active for a while in case there were some occasional incoming messages I wanted to catch and advise of the change. Then I'd close the old address. Trouble is ... I now have two separate email addresses, operating off the same account, but there doesn't seem to be any gateways stopping the old email address getting mail addressed to the new address - and vice versa. I wanted to avoid running (and paying for) two entirely separate email accounts. Is there something I'm missing? Many thanks

Outlook Express runs without .exe

Postby RGlzY29OYXA5MDAw » Fri, 26 May 2006 06:00:02 GMT

I use XP Professional at work with my work email on Outlook using Exchange.  
I recently configured Outlook Express to run my personal POP mail through a 
Plaxo application.   I cannot find the .exe file (msimn.exe) anywhere in my 
operating system.  But when I do a run... command from the start menu it 
boots right up.  How can this be?  I want to shortcut Outlook Express to my 
desktop but have not been able to find the .exe, even in the Outlook Express 
folder.  I also tried to write a .bat file with the single command line 
"msinm" in it which failed to do anything.  Can anyone help me on this one?

In windows explorer settings, make sure that "Hide file extensions for known
file types" is unchecked, make certain "show all files" is checked,
the first makes MSIMN.EXE - appear as msimn in directory lists, the second
if unchecked Hides read only and system files so you cant see them.
my version of outllook express resides here "C:\Program Files\Outlook
Express\MSIMN.EXE"

An easy way to do this (most of the time you can do this without showing 
hidden files, file extensions, or showing system files, but don't hold me to 
that) is to do the following:
1.) Click Start - Search - Files and Folders.
2.) Search for "MSIMN" (I don't think it's case-sensitive, but don't hold me 
to that - I think you can tell it to be)
3.) Notice the icon that shows in the search results - if it's an 
application, it should either have the standard "application" icon image or 
it would look like the Outlook Express icon (the little envelope encircled by 
the blue arrows). If more than one comes up, switch to detail view (View - 
Details), then see what folder/path said item resides in.  It should match 
closely (if not exactly) %SYSTEMROOT%/Program%20Files/Outlook%20Express/ 
(where %20 = {space} and %SYSTEMROOT% = your default system drive).
Right-click on the icon that matches the closest to said path and select 
Send to - Desktop (create shortcut).

You might also want to be sure you have given access to this program by 
running the "Set Program Access and Defaults" item from your Start Menu (if 
installed and showing it), and you might also want to double-check your 
Internet Options in the control panel to be sure the default Mail client is 
properly set.

Hope this helps.  In any case, please address reply/ies to this newsgroup so 
that other with similar issues can use this potentially helpful information 
as well.

1.MSKSrvr.exe continues to run and run and run after opening Outlook

Some times, not all times, when I send/receive Outlook the program 
MSKSrvr.exe opens and the continues to run, with out stopping.  It takes 95%+ 
of my CPU. I have let it run for over 30 minutes. All my emails post and 
arrive and it still runs.
 I can go into task mngr and stop the process and all seems well.
Can someone tell me what the problem is and how to make this stop?
thanks!

2.Running Outlook Calendar From VB Leaves Orphan Outlook.exe Running

Hi

I have a small piece of VB6 code to fire up the Outlook calendar from
an application. It doesn't need to do any fancy calendar manipulation,
it just brings up the Outlook calendar so people can have a look at
it.

Problem is that when they close Outlook after viewing the calendar,
then try to run my piece of code a second time, it fails to open
Outlook because OUTLOOK.EXE is still running in task manager.

Here's the code:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dim olApp As Object
Dim olExplorer As Object
Dim olNS As Object
Dim olFld As Object
Const olFolderCalendar As Long = 9
Const olMaximized As Long = 0

' The routine called here just returns TRUE if outlook is already
running (which it does by doing a
' FindWindow("mspim_wnd32", 0)

If Is_Outlook_Open() Then

    Set olApp = GetObject(, "Outlook.Application")

  Else

    Set olApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

  End If

  Set olNS = olApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
  Set olFld = olNS.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderCalendar)
  Set olExplorer = olFld.GetExplorer

  With olExplorer
    .Display
    .WindowState = olMaximized

  End With

FireUpCalendar_Exit:
  Set olApp = Nothing
  Set olExplorer = Nothing
  Set olNS = Nothing
  Set olFld = Nothing

  Exit Function
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The failure occurs because the line:

    Set olApp = GetObject(, "Outlook.Application")

causes a VB error "ActiveX component can't create object"

If I go to Windows Task Manager and shut down the OUTLOOK.EXE process,
my code will work again (once).

I've tried a few tweaks to the code, but I can't find a way to stop
OUTLOOK.EXE from remaining open in task manager.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Andy

3.Impossible to run Outlook Express - msimn.exe

Hi,

Since I ran an anti-spam program and ad-aware, Outlook Express can not 
start. As soon as I click the icon, I receive a termination message 
"msimn.exe had a problem and will close" .
Even when I reboot the computer, the problem remains.
Any help appreciated.

4.How do I run a Scanpst.exe or Scandisk.exe

It was recommended to me to run a Scanpst.exe with Scandisk.exe or another 
disk repair utility several times to see if we can recover a .pst file 
(backed up Outlook 2003 emails) on a CDRW.

Can anyone share with me how to do this?  I appreciate your time.

5.helpsvc.exe running without being told to run?

under what conditions would you normally expect helpsvc.exe to start itself?

I was making out Christmas cards two days ago and had turned away from the 
computer for a half hour, maybe an hour, and I heard the thing "churning" so 
I opened task manager and saw helpsvc.exe using a great deal of memory.. that 
has 
never happened before.  Usually when I hear it churning it is due to the 
update on McAfee or something like that.  This is a first.

It got up to 113,000 and then decreased by itself.  I was not actually 
working on the computer, but minding my own business.

strange.     do I have the right category for this question?
