Recent crash.  Now Word/Tools/Envelopes/Address Book Icon produces "Address Book Failure: "Invalid parameter" (0x80070057/0x00000000). Check your Mail setup.  You must have Extended MAPI version 1.0 or higher to use this feature.  
Seem to need to reinstall Microsoft Exchange?  Win95 Word 7.0 IBM PC 32 Meg PentiumII166 MMX.  Reinstalled Office Pro.  No luck.  Attempted reinstall Win95.  System "disabled" install/remove because current version more recent than disk.  Current disk says "..file missing.." and I didn't dare proceed.  Couldn't see how to reinstall ONLY windows messaging.  MS Knowledge Base on this error message was to curt for me to solve problem.  Any suggestions?
