    Sorry, but I don't really know what the hell are you talking about. Or don't at all understand what you have written.



    You have written like you are writing to another technician.



    As a matter of fact I am not a technician.



    I am a daily user of emails/pc's.



    So your advice is you might be an expert, but this reply isn't very helpful for me. You are to reply in simple terms where people can understand your replies.



    I have query was: I can't open any files in outlook express 6, cant send emails, or when pressing button for address book, gives an error that it cannot find it, etc...

How to recover Exchange 2007/Outlook 2010 Address Book list


Yes the contacts were all in All Contacts through the emc but not in outlook.

I think I figured out how to fix this by using powershell to hide all the contacts from the exchange address list and then turn them all back on. Syntax I used is below:

get-mailcontact -resultsize unlimited ' set-mailcontact -hiddenfromaddresslistsenabled $true

and then when done

get-mailcontact -resultsize unlimited ' set-mailcontact -hiddenfromaddresslistsenabled $false

Solution was very simple, getting to it was painful!

Also:
Recovery ToolBox for Address Book is a great way to retrieve contacts from corrupted Windows Address Books (files with *.wab extension). These files are used by Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express email clients. The loss of such documents means, that all business and personal contacts (email addresses, phone numbers, mailing addresses and other information) will be lost, too. This program gives you a chance for the successful recovery of all contact information, stored in wab files, without the assistance of 3rd party services.

My suggestion use Gmail and import your old email with the aid of the video above. Not all is lost.

Can't create new messages and create new contacts.


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/

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.

I accidentally permanently deleted my Outlook Express application, can it be restored? My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit, 2009 version, Service Pack 1


Windows 7 does not support the use of Outlook Express - this was removed from Windows Vista and Windows 7 and replaced by Windows Mail (in Vista) and by Windows Live Mail (in 7).
If you have copies of the Outlook Express mail database files (inbox.dbx etc) you should be able to migrate these into Windows Live Mail using the Import Messages option in the File menu and selecting Microsoft Outlook Express 6 then browsing to the folder where your mail database files for Outlook Express are held.
If you have previously exported your Outlook Express account details (name.iaf) - you can import these into Windows Live Mail too through the Import option in the Accounts page.
Lastly, if you still have your Outlook Express Address book (name.wab) this can be imported in to your Windows Live Contacts by selecting File then Import Windows Address book (.wab).
