|Can't Send/Receive Mail
Sometimes when I start Exchange (or Windows Messaging), it refuses to send or receive mail. If I compose a message, it just stays stuck in the Outbox. If I have Exchange set up automatically to launch a dial-up networking connection, it never gets invoked. If I exit from Exchange and restart the system, the problem goes away for a while.
There are a number of things that can
cause Exchange/Windows Messaging to misbehave in this
fashion. However, if you are running Windows 95 and have
upgraded to Windows Messaging or the full Exchange
Client, there is one thing you should check first: Click
on the Tools menu and see if the Deliver Now and Remote
Mail entries are grayed out. If they are, exit from
Exchange and use the three-finger salute
(Ctrl+Alt+Delete) to bring up the Close Program dialog.
Chances are, you will see a "Mapisp32" entry.
Highlight it and click the End Task button. After 20
seconds or so, you should get a "this program is not
responding" dialog. Tell Windows 95 to kill it
