Email Client (Outlook Express) won't start after console

I have been living with this situation for awhile and don't have the exact wording.
While coding in the IDE (Windows XP Pro) and using 2.5* and then "running" the program within the IDE to check functionality of the "error" reporting of the finished program an error was encountered. The email client facilitated reporting mechanism came up and stupidly without either cancelling or sending the reported error I quit the program by quitting the IDE. Since doing that Outlook Express 5 will not start up as an email program and acts as if it is "hung up".
Some years back this same thing happened to me and it turned out that Outlook was "stuck' in the waiting to report the error mode. If I remember correctly that was fixed by a registry tweak. Unfortunately I can't find my notes on that little issue if I made any. I do remember that it was someone from the Rev list (old list) who came up with this explanation and fix for me. I have searched the list as far back as I could, the web and mickeysoft without success.
I don't want to reinstall Outlook Express at this time.
I hope this helps explain the situation better.
