I can no longer use stationary or embed a midi into my OE 6 emails, and get them sent. I can hear the music & see the stationary, they are in my sent box, but...the recipients never receive them. I can't even receive the ones I've sent to myself, while trying to figure out the problem.
I've spent 3 days trying to find the answer on MS website & in talking with people. My ISP doesn't even know the answer....nor, do they know where the emails went that are in my sent box that never arrived at their destination...at least 20 of them (all the same email to different people trying to figure it out.) They won't go with just stationary, or just the midi, either. All my other emails go through just fine...even if they have a picture attached.
I get no error messages nor have I gotten an "undeliverable" message.
SURELY, there's an answer & someone on here will know it. ;)

Always been one to ask questions.

Outlook Express has 2 newer versions, you could try one of
them. Windows Mail or the last one Windows Live Mail.

Trust me...I've been looking at all options. Thanks! Did I read correctly that in order to have Windows Live, one needs a Yahoo! Plus (or whatever it's called)? I do have a regular Yahoo! email address, so I looked up the Yahoo! Plus (?) and it's $20.00 a year?

I'd much rather know what went wrong with OE 6. If I can get it to work, there'd be no need in downloading even more "stuff".

I'm far from being a wiz on a computer...and, if there's something wrong, there's no guarantee any other program would work...and, I may get into something that's WAAAAAY over my head. ;)

I tried for ages to fix a minor glitch in my Outlook Express program. When I downloaded the latest IE(8) it also fixed the OE problem - the two are linked. Time you got a bit more up to date anyhow from a security standpoint, even if you stick with OE. There's no reason to suppose it will cause any other problems and every chance it will fix yours.

Yahoo and Google often try to foist themselves on you when installing programs - you just have to so no (or uninstall them afterwards). However, I've never heard of having to pay for Yahoo in order to run any of the Windows "Mail" alternatives. As I see it they are just the modern replacements for OE.

You could try this I guess:

(it didn't ask me for XP CD).

I have AOL and Outlook Express. I had Windows Live Mail
for a while. You don't pay anything. The only reason I had
it was to help my Sister-in-law. It's better OE 6 You can
paste a picture on the email.
