Outlook Express 6 - Sending Mail RRS feed

  • Question

  • Since upgrading to Internet Explorer 8, my Outlook Express fails to send mail. On opening OE6, usual send and receive take place. When either a new, reply or forward options are used, the E mail is sent to the Outbox successfully but "sticks" there.
    Send/Receive button has no effect. If OE6 is now closed, it is impossible to re-open unless one of the following is carried out:-
    1] Restart Computer.
    2] From Task Manager, close file "msimn.exe" (there may be more than 1), open OE6, accept error message "Outlook Express could not be started because another instance of it is still running on your computer"(nothing showing in Task Manager Applications),  OE6 can then be opened successfully and previous mail in Outbox is sent.
