You guys are usually way above my level of knowledge and expertise, but an 
error like that has probably got NOTHING to do with Outlook.

Outlook hooks into a heap of IE code (as does OE), and I'll bet that something 
is not right with your install of IE...

Have you seen this:

Also, is the SP2 the RC1 release, or an older beta?
Was it installed as an upgrade or from an iso?

Hope that helps... ;-)

Yes! 4 times! Also tried unistalling and reinstalling Outlook Express. 
This is on a Windows XP Home SP2 machine.

I've backed up all mail and tried starting with a new PST. Twice. No 
luck! My PST's do get huge (225 meg and up) but my work Outlook doesn't 
have the problem.  I am forced at work to use it since it is on Citrix.

The message is that Outlook Express is not installed.
I'd love to give 2003 a whirl but my Ex wife(ya the one that was on 
Jerry Springer) is giving me woes right now and all my money is going to 
pay for a lawyer. That's another story. But the long and short is I 
can't afford it.

If anyone from MS is out there  that wants to keep me from switching 
send me a Outlook 2003 disk to PO Box 111223 Cleveland, Ohio 44111-1223
I love MS products but I can only take so much grief....
