    I have given up on windows mail - too many times I have had to reset it
    because msgs cant be deleted.

    I need to export my msgs to outlook but I get the error 'The export could
    not be performed. An error occured initializing MAPI' when I try.

    Does nothing in this crappy app work?

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Try Thunderbird

    or one of a wide selection of alternatives...

    Well is Outlook on the machine or not?

    It needs Outlook on the machine so that it has a reference to use. You're
    telling it you want to export your emails in an Outlook format. Well, it
    needs to reference Outlook to do it.

    Is Outlook there or not?
