I installed Outlook Express 4.01 SP1 on my Win95 PC. At the beginning I had problem to send email with attached files but today I just cannot send email at all. I get a fatal error almost at the end of the sending process and the programm is stopped. However, it seems that the mail is sometimes sent but it is not placed in the "Sent items" folder (it stays in the Outbox folder). I tried to re-install Outlook Express with the same result. Any idea or tips?

Fatal Error with sending the email or a Blue Screen that says Fatal exception Error??

No only Outlook craches, I get a window indicating the program will be stopped.

Make sure you click the send & receive button after sending, otherwise it will stay in the Outbox until the system default (30 minutes) sends it.

It seems that the PC was totally infected by different virus. Anti-virus has cleaned the PC and now it's ok. Thanks to all for your tips.
