Outlook Express 6.0 script error

OS-ME IE6sp1
I belong to a few graphic sharing groups and from time to time receive the following error message, when opening one of these type e-mails. I don't have incredimail and some of the graphics are from users of the program.
I really don't know if I should be clicking on yes or no, but either of them then gets me to the body of the e-mail.
What would be the cause of this message?!gloruGIquDqI22Jtbv49k7es5i9K!QVipwTIFZBdX5LcD5X!yAA!Ph4DB2GN*Hh7ISWQUSLFaUqg4gIB34BWVlLX8VKJingcvAAAArXJdAg/Example1.gif?dc=4675465142698602517

Re:Outlook Express 6.0 script error. Looks like INCREDIMAIL is installed.

Incredimail is not bug free. It can cause issues.

After you've had your fun with it, consider removing it.

Bob, I don't and never had Incredimail because I had heard about the bugs associated with it. I do, however, belong to OE mail graphic sharing groups that use do share some Incredimail items, but most of the shares are related to Paint Shop Pro.

Looks like INCREDIMAIL was used to craft the email.

Let me restate that. I looked at it again and it is some code that INCREDIMAIL did create.

Maybe you can turn the error message off when scripts like that have errors? That's up to you.

It appears like the mail that was created with Incredimail used some "coding/scripting" that was incorrect. When the HTML, with all it's various goodies, makes it to your computer from the Incredimail sender, then the "coding/scripting" errors are interpreted incorrectly. Are they sending you embedded midi files in the message also? If so, have them stop.

If you haven't tried the suggestion by Bill below, which involves installing the newest Script Engine, then it might be a good thing to try. The 5.6 script engine might help with correctly interpreting the code.

On the other hand, if the script isn't interpreted correctly, then you'll need to have the Incredimail folks send you "plain text" messages.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Grif and yes most, but not all, of the senders are using Incredimail and usually they have music in the background.
I belong to many such groups (non-Incredimail) that I may just opt to unsubscribe to their mailing list.

I was just relieved to know it wasn't caused by any of my settings.

1. Windows Script Host [WSH] is a language-independent scripting host for 32-bit Windows platforms and is included in Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 and later. Windows Script provides two script engines, Visual Basic Scripting Edition and Microsoft JScript, which can be embedded into Windows Applications. It also provides an extensive array of supporting technologies that makes it easier for script users to script Windows applications. It serves as a controller of ActiveX scripting engines, just as Microsoft Internet Explorer does. Because the scripting host is not a full Internet browser, it has a smaller memory footprint than Internet Explorer; therefore, WSH is appropriate for performing simple, quick tasks. Scripts can be run directly from the desktop by double-clicking a script file, or from a command prompt. WSH provides a low-memory scripting host that is ideal for non-interactive scripting needs such as logon scripting, administrative scripting, and so on. WSH can be run from either the protected-mode Windows-based host (Wscript.exe), or the real-mode command shell-based host (Cscript.exe), [Q188135].

2. W2K and WinME users have version 2.0 installed. Win9x and WinNT 4.0 users have version 1.0. "Upgrade" to version 5.6, from this Microsoft Windows Script Technologies Web site. Several areas of functionality have been addressed in this "latest version."
