Compacted Outlook Express and save some of my emails. Now, I need access to the following, but can not open them. How to reopen these emails?
1) open Outlook Express and go to tools, Options, maintenance, store folder. Copy the entire path to the storage folder, and then click OK. Close Outlook Express.
(2) go to the basket and search for all files with the .bak extension. Restore the most recent .bak files. That he will put in the OE store folder, but still like a BAK file.
(3) click on start, run and paste the path that you copied in step 1 in the run box, and then press ENTER.

Open Outlook Express, I find that all my files were deleted. Found in the trash, but can not import them. They sit in a folder as .bak files. How do I reinstate them?
Tried import - does not work. Tried to copy and paste - does not work.

Two reasons the most common for what you describe is disruption of the compacting process, (never touch anything until it's finished), or bloated folders. More about that below.
Why OE insists on compacting folders when I close it? :

About file Corruption:
If you use XP/SP2 or SP3, and are fully patched, then you should have a backup of your dbx files in the Recycle Bin (or possibly the message store), copied as bak files.
To restore a folder bak on the message store folder, first find the location of the message store.
Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store folder will reveal the location of your Outlook Express files. Note the location and navigate on it in Explorer Windows or, copy and paste in start | Run.
In Windows XP, the .dbx files are by default marked as hidden. To view these files in the Solution Explorer, you must enable Show hidden files and folders under start | Control Panel | Folder options | View.
Close OE and in Windows Explorer, click on the dbx to the file missing or empty file, then drag it to the desktop. It can be deleted later once you have successfully restored the bak file. Minimize the message store.
Open OE and, if the folder is missing, create a folder with the * exact * same name as the bak file you want to restore but without the .bak. For example: If the file is Saved.bak, the new folder should be named saved. Open the new folder, and then close OE. If the folder is there, but just empty, continue to the next step.
First of all, check if there is a bak file already in the message. If there is, and you have removed the dbx file, go ahead and rename it in dbx.
If it is not already in the message, open the trash and do a right-click on the file bak for the folder in question and click on restore. Open the message store up and replace the .bak by .dbx file extension. Close the message store and open OE. Messages must be in the folder.
If messages are restored successfully, you can go ahead and delete the old dbx file that you moved to the desktop.
If you have not then bak copies of your dbx files in the Recycle Bin:
DBXpress run in extract disc Mode is the best chance to recover messages:
A general warning to help avoid this in the future:
Do not archive mail in default OE folders. They finally are damaged. Create your own folders defined by the user for mail storage and move your mail to them. Empty the deleted items folder regularly. Keep user created folders under 300 MB, and also empty as is possible to default folders.
Disable analysis in your e-mail anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that devours the CPUs, slows down sending and receiving and causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs, account setting changes and has even been responsible for the loss of messages. Your up-to-date A / V program will continue to protect you sufficiently. For more information, see:
And backup often.

When I double click on an email to open, the following component is too left. I tried getting a double arrow and sliding to the right, but can not.original title: Windows Mail issue.
You are the very welcome.
I received a phone call from someone claiming to be windows and I have stupisly access to my computer, but does not give them the credit card details. This could be a problem
If you allowed them access to your PC, then it is a problem. I considered reinstalling my OS and change all my passwords. It would also make sense, if you use the online banking etc., to inform your bank that you have a security hole on your PC. This will alert them to anyone using your current password to the Bank etc.

I have a Tecra A9, it came with Vista Business pre-installed and on a recovery disk. It also came with a XP Recovery disk.
Part of the documentation in the box suggests that I should be able to simply install XP from the recovery disc. I tried this, but I can't activate XP. I called the number of Microsoft on the activation screens and entered all the numbers, but I then told me that there is an error and I should change my product key.
My laptop on a a Vista product key stuck on the bottom. So, I seems to be a little stuck.
The sheet that was in the box says:
"it's additionall equipped with a Windows XP Professional Recovery DVD - ROM that allows you to easily install this operating system on your own. To do this, follow the instructions on the packaging of the DVD of restoration"
Usefully, there is no instructions on the packaging of recovery DVDs, I expected maybe a XP product key or something... But clearly not.
How should I proceed?
Sorry, but I'm a little confused. As much as I know Toshiba recovery image should not be enabled and if you please be so kind and explains what exactly happens when you try to use recovery media?
On what stage you must enter the product key?
In Hotmail, I can see only the Inbox but can't open messages. Also, I can not open all of the other categories. It is only with my netbook and is a recent problem. From an office, the account is fine.
I was read and send e-mails from my netbook and desktop computer without problem. This week, on my netbook, I can only Hotmail and see the Inbox. I can not open the mail, nor can I open one of the other sections or even get to page 2 of the Inbox. There is no problem with the desktop computer. Is there something I may be changed by chance on the netbook that prevents me from using Hotmail? Thanks for any help you can give me.

We watched in 'Deleted items' and they weren't there. We also "restored" the bin "recycling" and even did not see them return.
Thanks for posting. Please, try the following.
- Make sure that Outlook Express is not working.
- Open the Recycle Bin on your Windows desktop .
- Locate the files ".bak" corresponding to Outlook Express folders that you want to retrieve.
- The '.bak' file will be named as the folder in Outlook Express.
- To restore a folder called "Archive", look for "Archive.bak", for example.
- Click on the file '.bak' with the right button of the mouse.
- Select restore from the menu.
- Locate the file in Windows Explorer and open the folder that contains.
- Drag and drop the file ".dbx" corresponding to the Outlook Express folder, you want to get back to your Office .
- In the Outlook Express store folder, click the '.bak' file to be retrieved using the right button of the mouse.
- Select Rename from the menu.
- Change the file extension ".bak" in ".dbx".
- If the file was called "Archive.bak", for example, make sure that it is named "Archive.dbx" now.
- Open Outlook Express.
- If your emails have been recovered, remove the ".dbx" file you moved to the desktop .
Also, if you cannot find the files in the above location search your computer *. Bak
I hope this helps!

An Outlook Express can be used as the default email client to work with the functionality of fusion and MS Word mail merge email? Looks like he wants to Office Outlook as default client. If I put the Office Outlook as default e-mail client, what will happen on Outlook Express, it is deleted or can it be flying over to Office Outlook?
I read in an article in Microsoft Office Outlook Express can be used for mail merge in office suites, but who have not yet tried. May be you can post this in Microsoft Office / Word forums for help says. Ramesh Srinivasan, Microsoft MVP [Windows Desktop Experience]
