All of a sudden I am no longer able to use the .eml-files in my Outlook Express


Microsoft has sent out a new security update for Outlook Express and if this has been installed on your computer, the eml stationery files does no longer work as intended!

1 solution on how to still be able to use ours and your already saved .eml-files is to:

1. Open it as usual by clicking the .eml stationery files and have them opening in Outlook Express

2. Press 'Forward' on the toolbar as if you were to forward an incoming email to someone else.

3. Remove the date that appears in the email and then highlight *Your text here...* and then start writing your message and then send it as usual. Note that in the subject line there might be written 'fw:', you can safely removed that, too and then write your own Subject title.

Another solution is to remove the installed patch until Microsoft has corrected this problem, doing this you'll be able to use eml stationey files again as always.

To remove the patch, follow this guide:
