 Drag and Drop Function in OE5

Hello to the group..:-)

I wonder if any of you have had this problem with OE5?

I am using my email for business promo's and as a
courtesy I use the BCC in my mail so people I am
sending to don't have to have that annoying list of
everyone elses email addresses in their face...

Suddenly my drag and drop feature has stopped
working and so I can't  load multiple addresses into
the bcc or even drag an email from my inbox to a save
folder or anything..

I am really stuck and need to solve this quickly..

Any help any of you can give me would be greatly
appreciated..:-)

If you have had this problem and know of a solution


thanks for all anyone can do..

sincerely'

Greg,

I'm not exactly sure what your solution will be, but here's some thoughts:

You may benefit from a complex rebuild of OE's database.
This should correct any corruptions (which it sounds like you have.)

See: <http://www.graphixmad.plus.com/OE_FAQ_crash+rebuild.html>

But first back up your data as a safeguard.

OE generally stores its data in a separate folder from the actual
application. It's usually in the:

Mac HD>Documents>Microsoft User Data>Identities>Main (or renamed) Identity
folder. (In some older versions of OE, the Identities folder is in the
actual OE application folder)

So copy your (active) Identities folder to a safe place off of your computer
first.

You may also make sure that you have the most up-to-date version of OE,
v5.0.4.  If your identities folder is in the above referenced location, you
can just download the fresh version of the OE application, and run it. It
will automatically SEE it's data in the Mac HD>Documents>Microsoft User
Data>Identities>Main (or renamed) Identity folder.

I would imagine that a fresh install of the OE application should fix the
problem. It's not too much of a hassle to re-install OE; no need to change
anything else, as all of the account set up info is in the above location,
and remains untouched in the above process.
