Outlook Express won't load
When loading OE (V5.5)I get an error message: "MSOE.dll
could not be loaded" (so OE won't load and I can't use e-
mail functions). I'm using Win98 and IE5.5. Can anyone
please help? Many thanks, TIM
You can't download it from Microsoft any longer. IE5.5 can be
downloaded from evolt.org but it wouldn't work for me. The full

the picture if you are sending. If in bmp-format; then it can be compressed

...How do I automatically prompt to file a sent message?
As a former NOTES user, I've become accustomed to being able to both send and
file an email in "one" step. In Outlook the default is to file the sent item
in the "sent" folder, or the folder in which the original message resides.
I'd like the option of choosing any folder in which to file the sent message
to come up automatically when I send an email.
See http://www.outlookcode.com/d/code/setsavefolder.htm for sample VBA code
to do this.

While typing in outlook 2007, the cursor will disappear most of the time and
blinks on every few letters. (I'm not talking about automatically hiding the
mouse cursor/pointer while tying, which is available in the Mouse visibility
options). I mean the text cursor. This behavior also appears using the
print view in Word 2007 (in the draft view the cursor is visible while
typing). Most other applications including MS apps (and office 2003) do not
behave this way.
The most obvious way to show the behavior is to hold the space bar while
typing an email in outlook 2007. ...Outlook error #35

well, an ascii file is a binary file... just the bits happen to be easily
displayable as letters, number, and other symbols. you will have to find
out what the meaning of each bit in the binary file is, how the bits are
grouped into bytes, and how the bytes are grouped into higher order things.
