I'm using XP and have Outlook Express 6. Recently, I encountered a problem with OE. I have a desktop folder of edited mails. When I open these mails, they open in UNEDITABLE format, i.e, there is Reply button on top instead of the usual Send button.

Things were working fine earlier, i.e., when I used to open the mails, they were editable and had a Send button on the toolbar on top. But now I have to hit the Forward button to make the mails editable (to make any last min. changes), reome the fwd: info. block that appears on top of the mail content and then make changes and send it. This is very tedious when sending many mails! :thumbsup:

I'd really appreciate if someone could tell me what might have went wrong and have caused this and how can I put it back to normal.

Hi greenspace,

If you are saving the messages as Drafts, you will be able to edit them at a later time.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
