    Rtottie, Microsoft do seem to have been ultra productive of late and yes you do need SP3. You don't need to keep the installation files though and if you are happy, you can remove the uninstall information as well (I quite often do that).

    OE stopped working is a little light on the explanation side.
    Are you using POP3, imap or accessing hotmail with it?
    Who is your email provider and have you checked that they haven't changed their security recently?
    Never, ever approach a computer saying or even thinking "I will just do this quickly."
