    Outlook Express 5.0.6 is crashing every few times that I hit the "send now" button, requiring a restart - VERY annoying. Any suggestions (aside from upgrading software and OS) would be appreciated.

    I think its a Microsfoft problem. I had a problem with OE crashes on my machine at work. For me, there seemed to be a conflict between OE and Office 98. On that computer, any Office 98 application--but only Office 98 applications--precipitated the crash.

    Open Outlook Express.
    Open Word 98 or Excel 98.
    See computer crash.
    Crash, computer crash.

    I presume that the cause is a library conflict. Standard MacOS 9/8/7 applications use the newest version of duplicate libraries. However, there is nothing standard about Microsoft.
