Greetings, paulcronin !

1. A recent Outlook Express update, KB 911567, can cause the problem.  The only fix now is to uninstall it from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel and disable Windows Autoupdate.

2. Register an important Outlook file. Go to Start > Run and type regsvr32 OLE32.DLL

3. Create a new Outlook Express identity.

4. Repair or Reinstall Outlook Express.

Luckily I got away without having to do all the work suggested above by deleting the mail item that was causing the hang & all seems OK know but will keep these suggestions in case. Accepting war1 as it was the first response. Thanks.
