If you're using the actual Microsoft Outlook Express, do this:
- Open Outlook Express
- Left-click on the 'Tools' menu item at top; when the drop-down menu appears...
- left-click on 'Options'; in the 'General' tab...
- Look at 'Send / Receive Messages'; make sure all three items are checked, then...
- adjust the rate at which emails are downloaded by changing the time to the right of the section that says 'Check for new messages every ___ minutes';
if you're expecting something important, and are on a broadband (not dial-up) you can change that all the way down to '1'...for dial-up, maybe '5' is more appropriate, especially if your system dials out each time OE is checking your mails...
hope this helps!

Outlook Express restore emails
Try downloading Firefox's Thunderbird which should be able to open them and convert them to a pst file. There is a converter called DBXTriever you can download as well, although I have no experience with that product (so cannot recommend).

Cannot open Outlook Express after compacting the files...
Thanks Everyone.. I fixed it with ther help of a great person.. DONT BUY THE PROGRAMS THAT CLAIM TO FIX ... All I did was the following:
Rename the Folders.dbx file:
- Click Start, point to Search, and then click Files or Folders.
- In the File name etc type, type folders.dbx.
- In the Look In box, click your primary hard disk (usually drive C), and then click Search.
- Right-click the identified Folders.dbx file or files, and then click Rename.
- Type folders.old, and then click OK.
- Start Outlook Express. This creates a new Folders.dbx file automatically.
Just change .dbx to .old That is all that was required.. RENAME!!! Not buying programs that dont work...
When I opened it the folders were a little messy.. but that is fine when you consider I felt that I had lost the program and all Emails stored. Problem only occurred after a suggested compacting of emails by the program.
RegGenie DID NOT FIX
Errorwiz DID NOT FIX
Good luck and I hope it works for you..

Outlook express wont open tells me error 0x800cc012e
Hi, Outlook express stores mails in a *.dbx files. So search for the files and keep a copy of the folder that contain these *.dbx files. Then uninstall outlook express from windows component, you know outlook express is a component of MS WIndows, but you can uninstall it. After that re-install it and use the previously backed up folder as the store folder.

Outlook Express does not come with it's own spell check installed with program. It utilizes Microsoft Office's spell check if it is installed or a 3rd party spell checker.
To configure Outlook express to spell check you need to go to the tools-options-spelling tab. If it is greyed out or unavailable then you don't have spell checking installed. If you don't have any of the office products or don't want to install them then you need a third party spell checking product.

Address book error
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

There is no setting as such. I suggest she check her anti virus settings and make sure it isn't giving 'false positives'. If it is not anti virus related she should contact her ISP/POP email provider and ask them for assistance.
