On my laptop, when I tried to open emails this morning, I got the message
"Outlook Expresss has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are
sorry for the inconvenience" etc etc etc

How does one "repair" Outlook?

Outlook and OE are *NOT* the same. Using them interchangeably will only lead
to confusion.

Is OE set to open in the Inbox?

below)
What next?

Do you know how to read?

Outlook Expresss has encountered a problem and needs to
>> close. We are sorry for the inconvenience" etc etc etc

That would mean what?

Don't store messages in the Inbox. It is the folder most apt to be
corrupted. As soon as you read them move them to user created folders.
Then compact the Inbox regularly.

Go to where OE is storing its files with Windows Explorer and move (not
copy) Inbox.dbx to an empty Windows
folder. With Win2K, WinXP and Win2K3 it will be a hidden file.

You can use either of these tools to extract the messages from the old DBX
file:

DBXtract ($5): http://www.oehelp.com/DBXtract/ although this tool is faster
and better:
DBXpress: ($25) http://www.oehelp.com/DBXpress/Default.aspx
Do NOT extract to the desktop!
With a large file this can take a long time, so let it keep running.

The messages can be dragged from a Windows folder back into an OE folder in
OE's Folder List.
