I am not able to open my microsoft outlook folders.  When I click on it to go in, it brings me to the main screen, but doesn't load any of the emails.  It locks up and says the program is not responding when I try to logout.  

If I go to another computer and login, it lets me into outlook.

Thanks

So you are saying in another computer , you are able to go inside outlook express . correct ?

Do you have the same emails stored in both of the  machine's outlook express  or you just tried opening
the outlook express just to see if it works..

Yes, I have two computers with msn outlook and on one, I can access.  On the other I cannot.  They have different emails as it depends on when the emails were downloaded, they would reside on that computer.  Do you think it's an email that's causing the problem.  How do I access my emails on the computer anyway?

Then open OE and check if it would open fine. Then go to the same location and paste the files that you had copies previously.
