View Full Version : Outlook Express won't start

Outlook Express 5 all of a sudden decided not to work anymore.The error message given is 'MSIMN caused an invalid page fault in
module MSOE.DLL at 0167:5f1b8b96.'
This particular problem does not seem to be documented in the Microsoft Searchable Knowledge Base. Uninstalling and re-installing Outlook Express did not solve the problem either. Any ideas??

Unfortunatly removing Outlook Express doesn't do much more than remove some of the shortcuts to it. Which is why it didn't fix it.

I had the same or very similar error a while ago.
My solution was to switch to Eudora (www.eudora.com) as it can import all your messages etc.
If you want to stick with it, the only solution I know is a reinstall of windows.

Hello Steve,

The problem you have can be caused by any number of changes or attempted changes you may have made to Outlook express, some may not be that obvious to you, meaning you may not even realise you have changed anything, go to the following link to read abit more about ways to fix some of the more common causes.
