Actually the Topic description says it all. I just reinstalled XP for the 6th time in 2 years (Good old HAL.DLL corrupt or missing). This time, however, after Mailwasher deleted all but 8 of the 222 emails I had waiting, and I opened OE, I couldn't "Receive" the emails that were left. The Send/Recv button stays grayed out. I went over the Options and couldn't find anything to change, there. I went over the Mailwasher Tools/Options and couldn't find anything to change there, either. Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. Has this happened to any of you? Can you steer me to a fix for it? Short of re-reinstalling XP, I hope.

If you have your XP CD you can check out this site. It explains how to repair OE. Also there is another site with help, tips, FAQs and technical information to help you use, understand, and repair Microsoft Outlook Express© for Windows, here. Hope the information is helpful. If not please post back.
