    this window is busy (IE6 sp1- XPsp2)

    "This Window is busy. Closing this window may cause some problems. Do you want to close it anyway?" message appears in small scree-centered window when attempting to launch OEX from within an IE6 page, especially when using "mailto_URL", and also when pop-ups apparently attempt to load. Occurs both when PopUpStopper is enabled, and when it is not. Multiple occurrences are generated in some instances. Reboot seems to halt the problem for awhile, then it recurs. Any ideas?

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by jscher2000 on 09-Sep-03 23:56. I didn't read that very carefully, did I...)</P>Is it possible that you have more than one "popup stopper" running? The one scared of Outlook Express probably should be removed from your PC on the grounds of stupidity. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Dave--

    4 Choices as editor--Word ,Notebook, Excel, and Open Office. Are you recommending it's better to use Notebook and what are the differences here? More likely to have problems if Word is the editor and what problems, why and pros and cons? I just arbitrarily have switched from Notepad to Word with no good reason--could it affect memory use in some way or cause other problems?

    The ONLY choice I would use is Outlook in Outlook and OE in OE. The use of a different editor within either can create problems. If the program was used within Outlook, and then one tries to open the program outside if Outlook, the OS thinks it is already running. Check your "Task Manager and you may see what I mean, it may be running in the back ground. There has been several other problems listed in the past.

    As for the memory use, only if you have several copies running.

    Dave--

    Maybe I was confused and confused you with the question because there is another place to make the choice I don't realize.

    Since OE is part of IE, I thought you were talking about going on the IE toolbar to Tools>Options>and choosing your HTML editor there, and since OE is dependent upon IE for a number of its settings, that would be the choice for OE.

    When you say OE in OE I'm not sure what you mean. I thought the choice was on the Programs Tab of Internet Options between Notepad, Word and other programs. Where can you choose the HTML editor for OE?

    Hopefully you will straighten me out.

    Thanks,

    We were and are talking about the email editor, which has NOTHING to do with the HTML editor choices in IE. With in Outlook and OutlookExpress, there is the option to use MS Word as the email editor. My statement above about using Outlook in Outlook means just that, NO MS Word as the editor. I do NOT know how Note pad can be used as the Email editor.

    I was wondering how you can up the the selections such as "Excel", even as a HTML editor that would be a fun one.

    Are you using MS Word as your email editor?

    Dave,
    I read that as Notepad+ as opposed to the vanilla MS version. Going by the screenshot below, there may be an email facility...
