View Full Version : Outlook Express

I am having trouble with outlook express ( running on windows me ) as it has recently started opening some of my messages as if I have double clicked on them when I haven't and it sometimes deletes unopened messages next to a message I am deleting. I've done virus checks and checked the mouse settings and things seem ok so any help would be much appreciated.

Run a Trojan detector through your system in addition to the anti-virus.

I had the same problem, just placing the cursor over them opened them.

There should be an answer on Press F1 for this, but I can't remember where.

>just placing the cursor over them opened them.

Change your default settings.
Tools; Options; Read; Uncheck "Mark message read after displaying for.."

As far as the other problems go...... (?) Doing an update sounds a feasible idea.

All the settings seem to be alright, I've got all the latest updates, I had a good search around PressF1 but couldn't find a problem relating to mine. I could still use some help as the problem won't go away. Cheers gmon
