I currently am running Windows 98 and Outlook from my computer at work.  When I check my personal email (home email), which uses an outside ISP POP3 account other than our inhouse server for incoming mail, I receive a mapisp32.dll error upon closing.  Any suggestions on why this happens and what I can do to correct the problem.  I usually have to reboot.

You get the error when you close Outlook, correct? Do you know what the rest of the error says?  And, are you sure it's MAPISP32.DLL or is it just MAPI32.DLL. You see, MAPI32.DLL  is the primary function library for Windows NT, 95 and 98. Think of it as the lunch meat between the Outlook application and your ISP. The MAPI subsystem manages memory, profiles, an routes requests. It would help if you can see if there is more info on the error message.

Yes, it is the mapisp32.dll error I receive.  It is a popup box that appears and usually it doesn't go away until I reboot.  It happens when I check the profile for my personal email address and not my "work" network address.  The details portion of the box states "mapisp32 cased an invalid page fault in module kernel32.dll at 015f:bff9d709.  Then it lists registers...
Thanks.

I'm interested in this one....

I had the same problem a couple of months ago.  Reinstalling Outlook 98 did the job, although i have no idea why?

Alright, here's what I found. It's quite lengthy but you can probably administer the problem using the first or second method. Now, if you're in a corporate environment, you may need admin rights. But, what the heck..try it. But also, I bet reinstalling Outlook may fix the problem too. Unless there is a problem with the way Outlook is configured to retreive the POP3 email. Here you go...Enjoy..
The information in this article applies to:
Microsoft Outlook 98
NOTE: These procedures only apply if you have installed Outlook with the Corporate Workgroup/Other option. This option allows you to use Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) services. To determine your installation type, on the Help Menu click About Microsoft Outlook. In About Microsoft Outlook you should see "Corporate" if you have the Corporate Workgroup installation.

IMPORTANT: This article contains information about editing the registry. Before you edit the registry, make sure you understand how to restore it if a problem occurs. For information about how to do this, view the "Restoring the Registry" Help topic in Regedit.exe or the "Restoring a Registry Key" Help topic in Regedt32.exe.



SYMPTOMS
You are using the Corporate or Workgroup installation of Microsoft Outlook 98 configured with the Internet E-mail service in your profile. You are not able to send mail and the Internet E-mail service does not appear in either the Mail Services dialog box or under Send And Receive on the Tools menu.



CAUSE
This condition may occur when certain components that make up the Internet E-mail service are damaged or not properly registered.



RESOLUTION
This section describes several possible resolution methods. The methods are in order, from least difficult to most difficult. Try each method in order, testing after completing each one for proper Internet E-mail configuration and functionality.

NOTE: Because there are several versions of Windows, the following steps may be different on your computer. If they are, please consult your product documentation to complete these steps.



Basic Steps to Rename Files
In the methods listed below, you often need to locate and rename certain files. To do this in each method, follow these steps:


Quit all programs.

Click Start, point to Find and click Files Or Folders.

In the Named box, type the name of the file you want to locate, as described in each method.

In the Look In list, click to select your hard disk.

Click to select the Include Subfolders check box, and click Find Now.

To rename the located file, right-click the item and then click Rename on the shortcut menu. Edit the name by changing the extension of the file to ".old" (without the quotation marks).

NOTE: In some cases, you need to use the asterisk (*) character to do "wildcard" searches. For example, in order to find all files that are in the Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) family, you would type "Mapi*.*" (without the quotation marks) in the Named box. This query returns files such as Mapi.dll, Mapi32.dll, and Mapisvc.inf, among others.


Method 1

Using the steps described earlier in the "Basic Steps to Rename Files" section, locate and rename all occurrences of the following files on your hard disk:


    Mspst32.dll
    Minet.ecf
    Minet32.dll
    Wsock32n.dll

Click Start, point to Settings and then click Control Panel.

Double-click the Add Remove Programs icon.

In the list of programs click Microsoft Outlook 98, and click Add/Remove.

In the Outlook Active Setup dialog box, click Rerun Outlook 98 Setup.

After completing the reinstallation, start Outlook and test for Internet E-mail functionality.
NOTE: You may need to create a new profile after reinstallation.


Method 2

Using the steps described earlier in the "Basic Steps to Rename Files" section, locate and rename all occurrences of the following files on your hard disk:

    Mapi.dll        Outllib.dll
    Mapi32.dll      Outlmime.dll
    Mapisp32.exe    Outlook.exe
    Mapisrvr.exe


Click Start, point to Settings and then click Control Panel.

Double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon.

In the list of programs, click Microsoft Outlook 98, and click Add/Remove.

In the Outlook Active Setup dialog box, click Rerun Outlook 98 Setup.

After completing the reinstallation, start Outlook and test for Internet E-mail functionality.
NOTE: You may need to create a new profile after reinstallation.


Method 3
If you are using Windows 98, remove and reinstall Outlook Express, an e- mail and newsreader component of Microsoft Internet Explorer. To do this, follow these steps:


Click Start, point to Settings and then click Control Panel.

Double-click the Add Remove Programs icon.

In the list of programs, click Microsoft Outlook Express and click Add/Remove. When prompted, click Yes to remove Outlook Express.

In the Add/Remove Programs dialog box, click the Windows Setup tab and then click to select Microsoft Outlook Express. Click OK to install Outlook Express.
NOTE: You need to insert the Windows 98 compact disc into your CD-ROM drive for this step.


After completing the reinstallation, start Outlook and test for Internet E-mail functionality.
NOTE: You may need to create a new profile after reinstallation.


Method 4
If the methods described earlier do not resolve the problem described in the "Symptoms" section, you need to remove Outlook and perform further maintenance before reinstalling.

WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

For information about how to edit the registry, view the "Changing Keys And Values" Help topic in Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) or the "Add and Delete Information in the Registry" and "Edit Registry Data" Help topics in Regedt32.exe. Note that you should back up the registry before you edit it.

To remove Outlook and perform the specified file maintenance, follow these steps:


Click Start, point to Settings and then click Control Panel.

Double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon.

In the list of programs, click Microsoft Outlook 98.

In the Outlook Active Setup dialog box, click Remove Outlook 98.

NOTE: If you do not have Office 97, skip this step and proceed to step 6.
If you have an Office 97 compact disc, use the steps described earlier in the "Basic Steps to Rename Files" section to locate and rename all occurrences of the following files on your hard disk:

Mfc40.dll (Default path C:\Windows\System) Mssetup.dll (Default path C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\ Setup\Outlook) Msvcrt40.dll (Default path C:\Windows\System)

Then, copy these same files from the Office 97 compact disc and paste them in the same location where the renamed files are located.


Using the steps described earlier in the "Basic Steps to Rename Files" section, locate and rename all occurrences of the following files on your hard disk:

     Mapi.dll           Jobexec.dll
     Mapi32.dll         Psapi.dll
     Mapisp32.dll       Inseng.dll
     Acmeeng.inf        Softpub.dll
     Wintrust.dll       Outsetup.inf
     Wininet.dll        Outlwzd.exe

    Then, copy these same files from the Office 97 compact disc and paste
    them in the same location where the renamed files are located.


Click Start and click Run. In the Open box, type "regedit" (without the quotation marks), and click OK.

In Registry Editor, locate the following Registry subkey (folder):
HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Active Setup


On the Registry menu, click Export Registry File. Type a name for the registry file and click Save to save the entry to your desktop.
This procedure creates a backup of the subkey.


Right-click the subkey (folder) and click Delete on the shortcut menu.

In Registry Editor, locate the following Registry subkey (folder):
HKey_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Active Setup


On the Registry menu, click Export Registry File. Type a name for the registry file and click Save to save the entry to your desktop.
This procedure creates a backup of the subkey.


Right-click the subkey (folder) and click Delete on the shortcut menu.

Using the steps described earlier in the "Basic Steps to Rename Files" section, locate and rename all occurrences of the following files on your hard disk if they exist:
Msdownld.tmp Ixp.tmp Ol98logs

Then, copy these same files from the Office 97 compact disc and paste them in the same location where the renamed files are located.


Use either the Outlook 98 compact disc or an Active Setup file obtained from the Web to run Outlook Active Setup.

After completing the reinstallation, start Outlook and test for Internet E-mail functionality.
NOTE: You may need to create a new profile after reinstallation.


Method 5
You should only attempt the final method after attempting each of the previous four methods. To complete this more extensive method, follow these steps:


Close all currently running programs.

Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, check the Task Manager or Close Program dialog box for any additional programs that may be running. Select each item in the Close Program list and then click End Task. Complete this operation, confirming the End Task operation each time, until only Explorer and Systray are running.

Click Start, point to Settings and then click Control Panel.

Double-click the Add Remove Programs icon.

In the list of programs click Microsoft Outlook 98, and click Add/Remove.

   NOTE: Depending on the installation type and mail services you are
   using, some of these files may not exist on your computer. For
   example, you may not have files that match the Ems*.* query because
