Outlook Express - error exporting messages

Posted on 2005-04-05

I have OE ver 6.00.2900.2180 running under XP.  When I try and export the messages, I get the following error, "Error occured while initializing MAPI".  

I read some other comments on the area.  Something is not setup properly.  In OE, I went to the Tools menu and clicked Options. On the General tab, I wanted to set OE as the "default Simple MAPI client".

Unfortunately, the button is greyed out and I can't do this.  Is there another way to set up my default MAPI client?

    Looks like it may be the solution.  I won't have a chance to test it for a week or so.
