After sending/receivíng messages in Outlook 2000 the services keep disappearing under Options, Mail Services. The field is totally empty! I restore them but it is the same next time. I use Outlook in C/W-mode and I have Microsoft Fax and Internet Mail as services in the current profile. Dont tell me to switch to IMO with WinFax SE because I really need Microsoft Fax and C/W-mode.

Thanks to all of you kind and helpful people!

No. I did not think that would be necessary. but I can do that too, of course. But Why do they disappear after sendíng/receiving?

Not sure but it could be a corrupt profile (hence the request to create a fresh one with a new name)

Thank you, I will try that. (After restarting the computer the services came back in Outlook, weird eh..?)What is the purpose for Outlook Internet settings, which I use as my current profile?
