Question about Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 for PC

1 Answer

I am unable to open Outlook Express 2003

I tried to send an e-mail with three scanned documents attached to it, which was a mistake, as it was too large a file to send. I tried to delete the file from the outbox, but it wouldn't let me do so, as I kept getting a message that it was trying send it, so I couldn't delete it. I have tried shutting down the computer several times, and also going into Outlook with the Internet service disconnected, hoping it would allow me to delete the file. Now, I cannot even go in to the program. I get a message stating that the personal file folder was not closed down properly, and it is searching for errors. It begins to search, and says there are 50 seconds remaining, then it blocks completely and doesn't go any further. I can't even shut down the computer properly at that point but have to use the on/off button to get out of there. Any help you can give would be much appreciated!

What you need to do is go to 'my computer' then right click on 'C Drive' then click on 'Search'.
Look for a folder named 'identities' - it is hidden so don't forget to mark 'search for hidden files' as well.
It should find the identities folder under application data or something like that.
Anyhow, under identities youl find a string of letters and numbers (another folder), double click and get into it all the way to outlook express... under outlook express you should see all your outlook express folder (like inbox, sent items and outbox).
If the problem is with the outbox just delete it and rerun outlook express, it should recreate that folder.
Good luck.
Hopefully it was informative enough for you to rate my response,

I am able to get the attment from a particular sender


Please explain your question further ...
"I am able to get the attment from a particular ... "
a particular what?

If you are unable to receive a particular attachment from an individual, it depends on the attachment. Microsoft Outlook Express strips attachments of Microsoft Files. That is if someone sends you a MS Excel spread sheet or Word document, Outlook Express will strip the attachment for security. There's no way around this. The fix is have the person send you their file in .ZIP format. Then you can unzip it locally.

Hi All

if you are running XP then open up explorer and go to

C:\Documents and Settings\*your user name*\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{65C0EAFC-BB65-4A91-A733-2B5FA75AFB49}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

then delete outbox.dbx (Make sure outlook express is closed)

Outlook Express Not Receiving Attachments From One Sender


  1. Open Outlook Express
  2. Click on Tools->Message Rules->Mail
  3. Check the Mail Rules and Blocked Senders tabs
This is just a preliminary check for anything that may be modified that could be causing your problem. Since the issue is with a specific sender, I would check there first.

Sending attachments in Outlook 2003


Try saving the document to your local drive first, then send the file as an attachment. When the file is opened from your Outlook, it resides only as a temp file while you are viewing it, then to try to send that temp file, it causes issues with outlook. Save the file first, then send it, but don't try to send the file from the temp view whilst opening the file that is still in another e-mail

Winmail to Outlook express 6


Outlook Express does not display any message attachments if TNEF-encoded file (winmail.dat) was received. If you are expecting some attachment, but do not see any, it still can be there.

To decode such a message perform the following steps:
  1. Save the whole e-mail message to an *.EML file via File, Save As, or Drag-and-drop.
  2. Open the *.EML file in a text editor such as Wordpad or Notepad.
  3. Locate the line Content-Type: application/ms-tnef;, and change the Content subtype to something else, such as Content-Type: application/zzz;
  4. Locate the line name="winmail.dat" and change to name="winmail.tnf". You may change the winmail part as well, if desired.
  5. Save the *.EML file from the text editor.
  6. Double click the *.EML file from the Windows File Explorer. This will open the message in a mail window and the TNEF attachment should now be available for saving.
  7. Drag the saved attachment into the Winmail Opener program. Decoded attachments will then be there and can be dragged or opened.
