Question about Microsoft Outlook Express

Address book error

I've done something to my PC. Running Outlook Express. Now I can't access my old emails: it won't launch and gives an error code -127. Googled for that with no joy. Anyone got any clues? I rather need to recover it!

My suggestion use Gmail and import your old email with the aid of the video above. Not all is lost.
Most of the time you can recover the old email and the old address book

Good Luck

If Outlook says it's corrupt them you gonna have to create a new one.

Try to do a backup of everything by doing a Export from Outlook to backup.pst

If this doesn't work then you will have to re-create your Outlook client and YOU WILL LOOSE YOUR E-MAIL INFO.
Or,
Go to TOOLS->EMAIL ACCOUNTS->VIEW OR CHANGE EXISTING ADDRESS BOOKS OR DIRECTORIES and remove the "Personal Address Book", then restart Outlook and see if you are still getting the error message.
Try to install Recovery Toolbox for Address Book http://www.outlookexpressaddressrecovery.recoverytoolbox.com/

Outlook Express 6 - Address book failed to load


The WAB file may have become damaged or corrupted causing one or both of the above error messages. You will need to rename the existing .wab file and restart Outlook Express(OE). Once started, OE will create a new .WAB file. Microsoft does not recommend that you import the data from the old, damaged .wab file. If you do, you may import the damage into the new .wab file.
1. Click Start, point to Find (Search on Windows 2000 or newer operating systems), and click For Files or Folders.
2. In Search for files or folders named, type. *.wab and click Search Now.
3. In the Search results window, Right-click the file(s) with an extension of ".wab" and then click Rename.
4. Rename the file extension (the three left-most characters in the name) to "old" and press ENTER.
If you are still experiencing the issue after applying this fix you can try Address Book Recovery http://www.oemailrecovery.com/address-book-recovery.html

I have Outlook Express for my e/mail, my sever is Broadband and they changed my e/mail over to Magic Mail, this leaves my address book back in Outlook Express. I know I have to make a file and export the...


In Outlook, you can use the Import and Export Wizard as the interface for Address Book conversion. To convert a WAB file, follow these steps: 1. Start Outlook if it is not currently running. 2. On the File menu, click Import and Export. 3. Select Import Internet Mail and Addresses, and then click Next. 4. Select Outlook Express 4.x, 5 from the list, and then click Next. 5. Select the product for which you wish to convert items from the list, and then click Next. 6. Select any combination of the Mail or Addresses from the items listed.

NOTE: With the exception of rules conversion from Outlook Express, the steps to convert addresses is the same. 7. Click Next. 8. Select a destination for the imported address data. The destination depends on the type of Outlook installation you selected initially. a. The Internet Mail Only installation of Outlook 98 allows only the Contacts folder as the destination. b. The Corporate or Workgroup option allows the options of Personal Address Book or Outlook Contacts. 9. Select the appropriate duplicate items option. Click Finish to complete the import.
Hope that helps..........

I can't open the Address Book of Outlook Express 6 and i can't sent email


First you have to make sure that the letters do have a basis, that is to view the contents of the file "Sent Items (1) .dbx" and "Sent Items (1) .bak". This lead to the many programs, such as, Recovery Toolbox for Outlook Express, http://www.outlookexpress.recoverytoolbox.com/ but it is possible and Total Commander plugins.
Next to act on the results.

You call your internet service provider--the company that you use for mail. They will ask you to identify yourself and then can give you your username and password.
Your email address gives you a clue as to whom you deal with for email.

My son cannot get to his new email address


I am sorry but without more information I cant help you or him.
I need to know what kind of email address he has. Is it one of the cheapo free ones from google (gmail) yahoo or hotmail? Or is it a good old smtp email address that you would access from outlook express or windows email program?
windows xp and older used outlook express as a default email program. Vista and newer have a windows mail program somewhat inferior to the old outlook express.

Gmail, yahoo, and hotmail are all browser based and as long as you know your signin and password you can access it from any computer.

My e-mail coming to me is going to another address sometimes


changing email address will loose only the profile that you created from old email. If your talking about the address book and personal files ( like old emails ). All you have to do is Archive it and open it from the email client (Outlook, Outlook express, Thunderbird, etc.) that you're using from new email address.

Please tell us the email client that you are currently using so that I can tell you where to grab the address book and Personal files from default folder.
