cant export msgs to outlook - error initializing mapi

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 http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/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?
