  • 4. Upload Speed
    I have OE 8.0 with WinXP. I just got a high-speed cable system hookup for my stand-alone at-home computer. My problem relates to the speed I am getting when I upload (send) a 2 meg attachment in an email. I don't know that Outlook Express is related to this problem but I thought I would ask. When I send this 2 meg email, it takes me about 2 minutes to send. A friend with the same cable system can send the same email in 5 seconds. It takes me about 5 seconds to download that email. Is there anything in OE that could be causing this? My friend and I have compared all of our settings (hopefully all) and we now have the same settings but the problem is still there. Thanks for any help you can provide. Otto

OE6 opens once then wont open unless system is rebooted

I've been running Windows XP for a week now, and OE was 
working fine until late this afternoon, when I couldn't 
open it when clicking on the desktop icon. It won't open 
from any location - ie toolbar, programs, etc, unless I 
reboot the system.  No new software has been installed.

I was having this problem on Windows ME as well, and it 
started just as suddenly.

I have Norton Antivirus 2003 Pro running with the highest 
security settings, and immediately after upgrading to XP 
I installed a fresh copy of IE6/OE6, then ran Windows 
Update and applied all critical fixes suggested for my 
system, including IE6/OE6 latest security patches.

Am at a loss and find the problem exceedingly annoying. 
Was thinking of using Outlook XP - but it doesn't seem as 
user-friendly as OE. Perhaps I'm wrong. I have lots of 
seperate folders for classifying my emails and when I 
tried to copy my messages to Outlook, it just lumped them 
all together - actually some were missing ( the msg count 
was lower), and it didn't create the individual folders. 
Is there a way of doing this? Any good references 
available to help set it up and copy from OE? 

Many thanks,

Thanks, Robear

The info on  http://www.**--****.com/  led me to MS's 
support base and I've decided I should be using Outlook 
to take advantage of all the calendering and integration 
features - the OE workaround is also tricky (using 
regedit) and not worth it in view of what Outlook offers.

1.WMP wont open unless I first open task manager and stop it running

When I first start Windows (Vista Home Premium) and try to open WMP nothing 
happens. The only way I can get it to run is by opening Task Manager, 
stopping it from running then opening it again. Why does this happen and how 
can I fix it ? It used to work fine, then one day (about 6 months ago) it 
wouldnt open. I read some forums and someone suggested that it might be 
running and to carry out the process detailed above. Carrying out a rollback 
really isn't an option, nor is reformatting.
Oh and one more question in relation to reformatting. I have lost my Vista 
OEM installation CD - How do i go about retrieving my Key? And if I cant find 
my CD can i use my brothers CD and just type in my Key (if theres any way to 
retrieve it).

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

3.Word 03 wont open unless in Administrator mode

I ahve a strange issue on a clients notebook where any time he tries to open 
a word document (locally or networked) word crashes  with the following error:

Faulting application WINWORD.EXE, version 11.0.8227.0, time stamp 
0x486d648f, faulting module LAN52du.DLL, version, time stamp 
0x44333d7b, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x0000ce1b, process id 
0x1304, application start time 0x01c9149ffd82be4c.

I can get word to open documents if I right click and use Adminitrator mode 
and then go file open.

I have checked around for the dll file mentioned above but can find no 
reference to it on the net and I cannot find the file on his local machine.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated

4.Outlook wont sent email unless outlook interface is opened


I have MS Outllook 2003 set as my email program. My settngs--at Mail Setup--  
are to "Send immediately when connected"

However, when I click on an email link to send an email there or when I hit 
"New Message' in IE,  an "Untitled Message" page appears. I can compose a 
message there. But when I send it,  it goes to my Outbox and stays there 
until the entire MS Outlook program is opened, and I hit Send/Receive. This 
happens while I'm on online.

Is there a way Ican set Outlook up so that the email message is sent 
immediately when hitting Send as long as I'm online?

My connection is Dialup 56K, and the email account in question is a POP 

Thanks in advance:


Windows XP Pro SP2
MS  Office 2003 

5.Outlook wont send unless I close then re-open

I am using Outlook 2007 with Vista Home Premium. Just like the subject says, 
once I compose an e-mail, it will not send until I close and re-open Outlook. 
Also, it lately has started saying, send 2 of 2 when I am actually only 
sending one e-mail.

I appreciate any help with this.
