first off, OLexpress is part of Internet Explorer,, if you have LOST it,, then reinstall only IExploder,, If you dont have a great machine,, I would install IE5.5 with sp2,, just to save issues,,
Now,, from my experiences,, I have found OLexpress to be the most unreliable, tempermental, problematic, mail system ever!!
I like eudora better,, and if you do wish to do email,, and dont have an office product ,, you can download better mail clients than OLexpress,, plus,, if you do have an office product,, use Outlook,,
You may have corrupted your mail database which may mean "toasted"!
sorry mate OLexpress is awful!
