Opening OE6 after SP2



  • 1. Links to Windows news groups in Outlook Express 6 issue
    Hi Everyone, When I post a question on the Windows news groups forum , I always select "notify me of replies" . And for the last month or so , when I receive a message in Outlook Express 6 saying that someone has replied to my question , and then I click on the link ( the "Read and rate the Response" link ) , it takes me to a blank web-page instead of the page containing my question and the reply. This problem only began about 6-weeks ago , and only happens with the "Read and rate the Response" link from e-mail notifications from the Windows newsgroups . All other links in Outlook Express work fine. Any ideas on what started this problem ? Thanks. -- your friend, Larry

  • 4. Upgared W2K SP4 to XP Pro
    Bruce can you help please or refer me to somebody who can. Your advice on OE6 worked by the way and thanks. I am considering an upgrade from W2k SP4 to XP Pro. I have read up on it. I am not concerned about the actual upgrade but i am concerned about a plethora of programmes I have installed. It is not clear on the MS FAQs. Will an upgrade involve a re-install of these programmes or will the upgrade make the necessary changes to the registry ?. Many thanks, regards, JDW.

  • 5. Script error
    When I receive an email from someone with a web page in the body, or as an attachement I get script errors. When the web page is in the body of the message, the Internet Explorer Script Error appears when I highlight or access the email. If it is an attachment, the error occurs when I attempt to open the web page. I get the following: "An error has occurred in the scripts on this page. Line: xxx Character: xxx Error: Object Expected Do you want to continue running scripts?" This appears to occur when parts of the webpage cannot load, or links within a page are no longer valid. Is this common? Is there a way to turn off this warning? Thanks!

Opening OE6 after SP2

Postby robbied - UK » Sat, 09 Oct 2004 04:01:23 GMT

I am having difficulty with loading frntpage.htm from 
msoeres.dll.  It only half opens and most of the usual 
links are missing or if shown will not connect, such as 
change identities, MSN, unread mail, tip of the day,etc.  
I find this page very useful when I open OE and would 
appreciate some help here.  It always worked before SP2 
and still does if I remove SP2.
Thanks in advance

Try changing the info in the registry to point to this link:
res://C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msoeres.dll/welcome.htm

Registry Settings
User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\[GUID]\Software\Microsoft\
Outlook Express\5.0]
Value Name: FrontPagePath
Data Type: REG_SZ (String Value)
Value Data: URL or Filename

Then open Outlook Express and see if that works better.

None that I'm presently aware of.  The file (welcome.htm or frontpage.htm) 
seems to work for some and not for others w/o rhyme or reason.  I'll ask 
around and see if anyone has any input on the question.  If I find something 
significant, I'll post it to this thread.

Normally, the only reason I've ever used the FrontPage path is to set a 
different page on the internet as the desired one to open to while others 
have just eliminated the FrontPage path key and it seems that all is 
restored.  Having said that, your results obviously may vary.  Normally, I 
never see it at all, as my option is set to go directly to the Inbox on

It may help if you elaborate on your symptoms.
Open:   res://%ProgramFiles%\Outlook Express\msoeres.dll/Frntpage.htm
Tab through the links and report what is showing in the IE Status bar.

You can summarize what you see by capturing the text with  Ctrl-a.
It pretty well matches up with an  oecmd:  in the Status bar.
If most of them are missing you won't have many to list.   <eg>
FWIW  I get 14 tabbable links that way.
When the Identities dropdown is active there are 4 more.

I can make them all disappear by changing my Internet zone
Security settings.   Have you customized those settings at all?
As a test I suggest you let them be their defaults.

If the links (the oecmd:) are there but not working that
would suggest that there is something broken with that
"protocol".    However, it is internal (not in the registry)
so I don't know what you could do to repair it.

This command is available but I don't know what all it does.

    regsvr32  msoe.dll

(I keep meaning to compare the difference between it
and  msimn  /reg   using  RegMon  and keep forgetting.
Maybe this will remind me...)

Good luck

1.Unable to open JPG files in OE6 after SP2 download

I am running Windows XP SP2 and Outlook Express 6. After download of XP SP2 I 
can not open .jpg attachments in Outlook Express 6. It is not a security 
setting because I can open other attachments fine and I don't get any OE 
security messages.  When I attempt to open the .jpg file I get the message...
"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this 
action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel."
If I save the .JPG to my PC I can then open it without problems but do not 
want to have to SAVE every JPG that I want to view.  I have searched for a 
solution to this problem which I think was introduced by a SP2 from Windows 
Update. I have the same problem now on my laptop after SP2 donwload. Both PCs 
have file associations set up fine so I do not appear to have a file 
association problem. The only place I cannot open the file is OE6. Help!

2.Can't Open Newsgroup Messages in OE6 XP SP2

I have seen what may be similar issues in the past, however, haven't seen a 
resolution that works for me.
I have Windows XP, SP2 with Internet Explorer 7, running Outlook Express 6, 
and have created a newsgroup account, and subscribed to several Newsgroups.  
An example is:  microsoft.public.pocketpc.ebooks
The newsgroup does show up in the list, however, when attempting to open the 
newsgroup to see actual messages, the screen just flashes and immediately 
goes right back to the list of newsgroups.  I can never get into the actual 
newsgroup to read or reply to messages.

On this same computer, if I "uninstall" Windows SP2, ALL Newsgroups function 
perfectly normal.  It is only on SP2 that it fails to work.  I have 
replicated this problem on several different computers.

Can anyone please advise on possible things that can correct this problem.  
On my work computer, it also works, until I install SP2.  The problem is that 
I need to have SP2 installed to comply with the corporate computer image.

Thank you,

3.Win XP Pro SP2 strange "warn before opening" in OE6

I just recently took delivery of a high-performance custom-
built  PC. It has an AMD 3700 CPU, a 4 gig memory, a 260 gig 
Maxtoor HD, both a CD/DVD reader and  CD/DVD burner.

My Windows version is /retail/ Win XP Pro SP1 on the CD, but I 
installed SP2 from the free CD Microsoft mailed me. This is 
retail, and /not/ OEM. And, it is activated and /all/ updates 
have been applied on top of SP2.

On my older SP1 PC, /all/ graphics file types coming to me via 
E-mail in Outlook Express as attachments (not pasted it) 
automatically gave me the "do you want to open or save?" 
dialog box when I click on a graphics file under the "paper 
clip" button.

The non-graphics types, including TXT, DOC, XLS, PPT/PPS, etc. 
never gave a warning, they just opened. However, on my new SP2 
box, all the non-graphics attachments /do/ give a warning, 
which is fine. I feel more secure this way.

My connundrum is this: /all/ the graphics formats, /all/ of 
them, /except/ JPGs issue the warning before open, which again 
I like. However, /all/ the JPGs will automatically open in 
whatever app I have associated to them (usually that is Jasc's 
Paint Shop Pro 9.01.1).

First, how do I get the JPGs to trigger the warning? Then, how 
do I get the radio button back as in SP1 allowing me to choose 
between "open" and "save"? Yes, there is a menu choice to 
"save attachments" but I like the SP1 way better.

I remember seeing somewhere that the XP Registry contains a 
list of "safe" and "unsafe" file extensions which both IE6 and 
OE6 use to decide whether to warn me or not. But, alas, I 
cannot put my finger on that.

I /have/ verified that warnings are fully turned on for /all/ 
extensions, by looking at Explorer's Tools>Folder options>File 
types, but do not see anything at all amiss.

Surely I am missing something easy here, but I have searched 
for hours in the MS KB using all possible search strings to no 
avail. Ditto for Google.

Any help would be appreciated.
