[SOLVED] Problems with OE6 on Win 8.1 (64-bit)
#1
I've found several problems in using OE6:
1) All attachments (docs in my case) can only be saved into the Documents folder on my PC. The application hangs.
2) Word docs in attachments cannot be directly opened in MS Office 2013, while I can open them in MS Office 2003 only I've started the Word app.
3) I cannot create any new rules from received messages. The application crashes.
Hopefully, those can be fixed in a newer version.

I've just done what you advise and now all my issues seem to be solved! Surely, I'll be monitoring this for a while and keep you posted. Thank you very much!
