I have tried all the fixes mentioned here, the last being IMN reinstall
procedures which were attached as a file to one of the posts in this group.
Essentially these procedures called for a manual uninstall -- Deleting
Inetcfg.Dll and others.
This worked! The mail program ran fine for a couple days then all of a
sudden its back to the old "click on the program, it comes up minimized in
the task bar on the bottom for a split second, then bam it's gone" Ouch!!
News and IE 3.01 have always worked fine. One thing that was a little
strange about the above mentioned fix was that the address book was no
longer a separate program on my start menu.
Machine = Compaq Presario 4112. The software loaded with this machine
creates "user profiles" thus allowing up to 8 different users all with a
different password, start menu, etc. Could this be causing a problem? I use
the mail program at home on a dell and love it but I have just about had it
here in the office. Thanks!!
