  • XP Outlook Express in Windows Vista Mail

    Why should it be a major act just to access your messages moved from one computer to another?  As a technician, is why people ask me why they should stay with Microsoft?  Why can not do just a simple conveter since you can't import the indentities in Windows Mail?  Direct would be real simple.

    It is not Microsoft.

    These are public Forums, implemented and hosted by Microsoft.

    It is not a difficult path to follow the steps below.

    I have a version of outlook 2007 and I would like to delete the old version of outlook, the old version is not appear in the add and remove program.what can I do?


    It's actually a bit more complicated to do than of simply by clicking a button. Is there a particular reason you want to uninstall OE? It mgith be easier to leave and have Outlook 2007 works as your main e-mail program.

    If you do not want to uninstall, follow the detail what posted here.

    Log in your computer. Make sure that your account has administrative rights. Your CD-Rom drive must be empty. Remove any disc which can be inside.

    Double-click the "My Computer" icon on your desktop. Go to the 'Tools' menu and select 'Folder Options '. Click on "display".

    Go to the section "hide files and folders. Click on 'display the hidden files and folders '. Check the option "Hide extensions of known file types" to clear it. Click on, and then clear the checkbox "Hide protected operating system files." A dialog box with a warning message is displayed. Click on the Yes"" button. Close the "Folder Options" window by clicking "OK".

    Click on the button 'start '. Go to "Programs", then "Accessories". Choose "Windows Explorer".

    Find the following three files on your computer:
    1 C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Stationery
    2 C:\Documents and Settings\votrenomutilisateur\Application Data\Identities (or C:\Documents and Settings\YourUsername\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities)
    3 C:\Documents and Settings\YourUsername\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book (or C:\Documents and Settings\YourUsername\Local Settings\Application Data\Address Book)

    Each of the folders that you located just rename. Click a folder, and then press "F2". Rename the files to: "old_stationery', 'old_identities' and"old_address." When you're done, rename each file, click on "Enter".

    Click again on 'Start' and select 'run '. In the "Open" box, type "regedit".

    Locate the following registry keys. Right click on each registry key and then select 'delete '.
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Windows\ {44BBA840-CC51-11CF-AAFA-00AA00B6015C}
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Windows\ {7790769C-0471-11D2-AF11-00C04FA35D02}

    Exit the registry editor. Click on "Start" and click on "search". Click on "for files and folders.

    Find the following files on your computer:


    Click on each file and press 'F2 '. Rename each file to "filename. Old"(for example, inetcomm.old). Then press 'enter '. That, for each of the files listed in step 10. When Windows prompts you on the protection of the files, click "Cancel". Do not insert the Windows CD in your CD-Rom drive. When Windows prompts you to not recognize the file, click 'yes '.

  • How can I correct my address book so that it inserts the correct email address in the ' to: ' space?

    I can't locate the addresses in my address book because of a separate TBird problem which is apparently solved by technical experts, but I also have this AddressBook problem unrelated. When I start typing an e-mail address in the "to:" slot, Thunderbird end address since we can see it in the address book (but I don't). Then he words the address and insert it into the To: field. But, given that the address is blurred, it does not work. I have no idea that the address is blurred. It looks something like this when Thunderbird is done with it: "[email protected]"

    Removal and restoration of the profile makes no difference, as export/import of the contents of the address book as an .ldif file makes no difference. I asked this question before, but didn't get any help, so I try again.

    This means that a new type of auto-complete was introduced in the last version, but it has been insufficiently tested, and if several other previously hidden bugs have emerged. You can read the discussion (and add your vote for its importance) here:

  • After removing Office 2010 Trial, I lost my address book Outlook Express and cannot open emails.

    I installed a free trial of office 2010, but he did not understand the editor which was what I wanted.   I uninstalled it now I lost my address book in outlook express and can't open saved emails.

    I can't find my software or backup and think that I lost when I moved.


    Yes, you will need to reinstall Office 2000. When you installed Office 2010 trial, he removed Office 2000. Once you get the cd, reinstall Office and should be back up and running.

    I can't offer any assistance with address number address Outlook Express however.
