After running an executable file from one of my email messages, I can not receive or send email in Outlook because of a problem with the mapi.dll file and the minet32.dll, how can I get a clean copy of these or what should I do?

Did you tried to reinstall it ? And ... may it happen that you have a plain, simple VIRUS ?

I take it you have OSR2 because minet32.dll isnot on the 4.00.950.

To extract from CD,
1st Change Directories to the X:\WIN95> prompt, where X is your
CD-ROM's drive letter. Then type the following: Note that this is an example.
EXTRACT /A /L C:\Windows\System WIN95_02.CAB [filename]
/A tells your computer to start looking for file at the beginning; WIN95_02.CAB
/L tells it what location you want the file to go.

You can substitute WIN95_02.CAB with PRECOPY1.CAB.
I always send my extracted files to a directory I created called C:\INSTALL.
So the above line:
EXTRACT /A /L C:\Windows\System WIN95_02.CAB [filename]
would read EXTRACT /A /L C:\INSTALL WIN95_02.CAB [filename]

Your line for extracting would be
 X:\WIN95>EXTRACT /A /L C:\Windows\System WIN95_02.CAB minet32.dll
and
 X:\WIN95>EXTRACT /A /L C:\Windows\System WIN95_02.CAB mapi.dll

Let me know if that does it

Bud, sorry to intervene here!

MSmith33, do not under any circumstances try and extract either of the two files from the Windows 95 CD Rom disk. Which version of Outlook are you using? eg: Stand alone version, part of Office or Office Pro 97, Outlook Express or Outlook 98?

Thanks for your responses.  I have ms office pro 97 and I have tried reinstalling it with no luck.  I tried using ms exchange and received the same message.  I have Norton antivirus software and no viruses were detected.  I am going to download the latest Mcaffe today.

hey,
I was at law firm where we had numerous problems with Office 97....well none of the problems were related and all of them were completely random. I ended up installing the service release before investigating any of the problems. I thought it was risky but I had very little time and lo and behold none of the problems came back...go figure!
Ya I know my philosophy of late has been to slap a patch on anything that moves! But i just like having an up to date software  problem rather than an out of date one...

smeebud...i'll be here

Well, I downloaded the patch and installed it but I am still having the problem.  I can get on the Internet with no problem but when I go to retrieve/send my messages.  I get the following error:
The messaging interface has returned an unknown error. If the problem persists, start Outlook again.  
I've tried restarting it many times but still get the same message.  Help!!!

MS, which patches have you downloaded and installed?

When you install either (and it won't hurt to reinstall them!) use your "Ctrl"  "Alt"  and "Del" keys and open your close programs dialogue box and close all running programs (end task) on everything except Explorer and Systray.

Now load the patches, restarting after each and ending task in between them!
