    MSIMN.EXE hangs (OE 6)

    MSIMN.EXE seems to be hanging, and when it does, if I try to get mail by OE, the receipt of same stalls... sometimes for hours until I close all down, including the process.

    Is there some way to run a repair on just OE to see if that could fix it? I'm not running anything different as of recently... too busy getting used to my new monitor I guess.

    But if there is a way, much like running a repair install on Windows, that might do the trick..

    Regards,

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    I remember some years back there was a utility called "mark" that allowed you to mark and name segments of memory, thereby allowing you to clear (by name) memory areas at a later point.

    I wish I had that again... it was a life saver many times...

    Chuck, that was useful in MS-DOS, but it would be disastrous in Windows, where memory usage is much more dynamic than in MS-DOS.

    hans:

    You're probably right about that. Probably the closest you can come top that sort of thing is to use VM's for "try-outs". I'm doing more of that now, thank goodness, so my downside ain't quite as steep...
