Unknown Error With Microsoft® Outlook Express
What are the issues when Outlook Express shows an unknown error?
Outlook Express is an e-mail and news group reader. Outlook Express would handle the basics of Internet mail including address book, HTTP mail accounts, user created folders, message rules, etc. Outlook Express is a popular e-mail program and it is easily compatible with Internet Explorer browser and the Windows operating systems. Outlook Express uses the Windows address book to store the contacts and other information. In Windows XP, the Windows messenger is also integrated with Outlook Express. Outlook Express would create e-mail messages only when the program requests it. This may arise various situations in which the user would face unknown error messages. When these error messages occur, you won’t be able to access the full function of your Outlook Express.
Following are the reason for the occurrence of unknown errors and the tips to resolve them:
- Due to Windows registry errors
- Unable to load authentication details
- SMTP errors
Due to Windows registry errors
Outlook Express displays unknown errors due to the internal errors in Windows registry. The Windows registry holds critical information of all the Windows operations. The change of the registry values can cause a lot of problems. The registry errors would affect the working of Outlook Express. The registry cleaning process and resetting the values in the registry would help to solve these problems.
Unable to load authentication details
The loading of Outlook Express with the proper authentication would help to avoid almost all the problems related to it. Sometimes the authentication about the user and other information would face difficulty to load. That might cause unknown error messages. To solve this type of errors, you could reboot your computer and then check the service status. After that, create a new account with Outlook Express by re- entering the mail connection details.
The problems with the SMTP would affect Outlook Express. The Simple Mail Transfer Protocol’s errors would drastically affect your e-mail sending process.
