When starting Outlook 2000 it announces that it needs Outlook Express.  Installed OE but still get the same message. Uninstalled and reinstalled - same result. No functional deterioration, but just nagging message. Any suggestions? (XPPRO, OE6)

Outlook may also require Outlook express if you are reading any newsgroup .. Are you doing that because outlook doesnot has the functionality to read newsgroups.

Thanks for a rapid and useful answer
