There is no "owner" there. There is Administrator and Breener. Both my
accounts. I chose Breener.


I have the copy.




How since there is no *edit button* on the menu when right clicking on the
WindowsMail folder. There is no Edit button when I click on properties
either, so how do I accomplish adding myself to a a list of permissions?
In a previous post regarding the taking ownership of a file a suggestion
was made to you to download a zip file containing a couple of reg files.
You said it didn't work because there was no Merge option when
right-clicking a reg file.
Some time ago, as an exercise, I wrapped up the Take Ownership reg file
into an exe file with a GUI interface. It is simple to use and involves
nothing more complicated than browsing and clicking buttons so even you
should have no trouble using it. Feel free to try it:

Yes, it does allow you. You have to understand permissions and follow
the protocol.

There are two stages. You must take ownership, then you must grant
yourself Full Control over the file and folder.

- Right-click on MSOE.DLL.

- Select Security tab | Advanced | Owner | Edit. Change owner to you.
There is no "owner" there. There is Administrator and Breener. Both my
accounts. I chose Breener.
- make a copy of MSOE.DLL as instructed in the tutorial.
I have the copy.
- Change owner of the Windows Mail Folder, as in above.
- Right-click on the Windows Mail folder. Choose Edit button. Add
yourself to the list of permissions, and give yourself Full Control.

I did get it to work finally and deleted the old dll and installed the
new one.... unfortunately WM still does not open.
Install Thunderbird, move on.

There wasn't. I still have those files. When I right click on them my
options are:

Open. Cut. Copy. Delete and Properties. No "Merge."

After selecting the dll to remove, and clicking on delete, it said "You
don't have permission." I already knew that. What is this supposed to do?

Definitely. This guy is not good at following directions and we aren't
there to click the mouse for him. This screwing around with ownership
and permissions is out of his league. Unless he can get some live in-
person help, he's better off using something that will work out of the
box.

I don't like Thunderbird much, but it does have most of the features
anybody would want, and it just plain works.

Unless, of course, your name is Breener. Then *nothing* works the way it
does for everyone else.

....you'd think, except my boss, who switched from Outhouse
Express to TBird a while ago, constantly keeps bitching about
how when you click a column in the message list, and then press
a letter key, TB doesn't search down to the first message with
[whatever letter] as the first character like OE did...or it
does in Windows Explorer, etc...

...."Every list in every Windows program I've ever used does
that...why not in Thunderbird?!?!?!"

I know there was an add-on for TB that gave you that
functionality, at one point, but, as we also know, the add-on
system for TB and FF are terrible, as add-ons need to be
constantly updated with each new release of TB & FF to ensure
they will work/install.

(I'll check for a new one now.)

That and "Replies to My Posts" are badly needed.
