I was using Outlook Express yesterday and it was ok. Today I tried to use it and it won't open. I get a message saying "Outlook Express could not be started because MSOE.dll could not be initialized. Outlook Express may not be installed correctly."
Can anyone help??

If msoe.dll can't be initialized, and regserv32 can't find it either - then the files aren't located in the path that the computer looks for them in. This can be because the files are missing, or the path statement is corrupted (and even more, less likely problems).

Try searching your system for msoe.dll - you should find it in C:\Program Files\Outlook Express
On my system it's also got several updates and is stored in the dllcache (a total of 6 copies found on my system).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
