For Windows XP SP2, how can I uninstall and reinstall Outlook Express (OE) to possibly solve the problem at my post at www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Internet_Email/Email/Email_Clients/Outlook_Express/Q_24312880.html#a24118103
. I am creating a separate Question here because I fear that the Question Title there will not attract EE experts who know how to solve THIS question.
In this regard note that Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs in the left margin has a choice for Add/Remove Windows Components. If I uncheck the OE line and proceed and then go back there and check that line and proceed, WILL IT uninstall and reinstall OE (keeping all email and the address book) or will it merely disable and enable OE (which will not solve the problem). In case email and address book are deleted by this, I can always back them up before doing this.
Or is there some other way to remove and reinstall OE, preferably without deleting the email and address book ?
