Hi. I normally open up OE6 which automatically connects to the internet and downloads new messages. Today though it just hung after trying to download new email. After a bit of playing about I think this is happening when email gets moved to a sub folder through a rule. I can no longer open this folder. I've tried working offline and simply clicking on this Outlook folder and this causes the hang straight away and I can't see any older messages in this folder.

I have to use Task Manager to kill OE. I've tried system restore to when I know it was working but this doesn't seem to fix it.

Any ideas appreciated.
