Fixing Microsoft Email Errors On Your PC
Microsoft Outlook is quite unique among the popular email service providers around the world. Many people use it not only for personal usage but also for commercial and even personal usage. It is a great set of built-in features that make it better suited for both personal and professional use. While a few minor issues can be tolerated with most email clients, there are those Outlook problems that can really become a headache.
One of the common Microsoft email errors like [pii_email_019b690b20082ef76df5] is the inability to uninstall or reinstall Microsoft Outlook. The process to uninstall or reinstall an application seems quite intuitive but in actuality, there are several steps involved in this operation. The first step involves the installation of all necessary programs and the second step involves the installation of various programs that were installed on your machine. The third step requires the removal of any profile settings and finally, the last step involves the reinstallation of Outlook.
Microsoft Outlook has many features which help in maintaining your email data safely and there are certain features that help in keeping these safe as well. One such feature is the safe storage of your email address book, which is a feature present since the early days of the internet when email was only used for organizational purposes. Outlook stores a record of all your addresses and while you use Outlook, this record is not removed from your computer. This ensures that even if you reinstall Outlook on another computer, your stored email data is not lost.

Outlook also features a registry, which is a big database that stores information about your computer and all the settings that have been associated with your computer since the creation of your machine. This registry is updated and altered on a regular basis and the Outlook program uses this information to bring your email client back up to date every time you receive an email. Unfortunately, if you have downloaded an email client like Outlook Express, there is no safe way of restoring the previous settings or the old data on the email client due to the fact that the registry is no longer functioning properly.
This is where the error message’Emails found but settings missing appears and this is where you need to restore the previous setting database in your Outlook Express. However, since this is a database that contains important data, it is very likely that the restore option will fail and you will end up getting an Outlook Express error message’Emails found but settings missing ‘.
The most likely reason behind this error is due to the problems caused by the corrupt registry and since Microsoft introduced a program called Regedit to help users in editing the registry, we can now try and manually fix the registry. However, the problem here is that since the registry is very difficult to edit and the changes made here have to be backed up and then restored later on if you want to retain any data from the edited registry. The good news is that the Microsoft Outlook Express email client comes with a built-in ‘registry repair’ feature which allows us to conveniently clean the corrupted registry without too much effort.
The first thing that you need to do in order to successfully repair Outlook Express email errors is to boot up your computer and then type ‘regedit’ in the ‘Run’ box. Once you have done so, you will be able to locate the key ‘HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ Outlook Express’ and you should then highlight it. Once you have done so, you should click on the ‘modify’ tab and you will see that you have the ability to modify the various settings that are stored there.
You will notice that there are quite a number of options that you have here, and the good news is that you have plenty of options to choose from. In fact, you can change all the settings to their default values and then use a’regedit’ command to clear the registry errors’. You can also use the ‘regedit’ command to clear all the temporary files that were left there after you ran the ‘regedit’ command.
