When you attempt to get the properties of the Microsoft Exchange Client Inbox, you receive the following error message:
The properties for this item are not available.
Note: You may be able to bring up the Exchange properties via the Mail and Fax icon in Control Panel even though right-clicking the inbox results in the above error message.


This problem occurs because the Mlshext.dll file is corrupted or missing from the Microsoft Exchange Client program directory.


To resolve this problem, copy the Mlshext.dll file from the Windows 95 disks using the Windows 95 Extract tool. The Mlshext.dll file is contained in the Microsoft Windows 95 client setup cabinet file, Exchng2.cab, or in the Windows 95 setup cabinet file, Win95_06.cab. By default, the Microsoft Exchange Client is installed in the following directory, and that is where this file should be copied to:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Exchange\

For information about using the Extract tool, type "Extract" at a Windows 95 command prompt, or see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
129605 How to Extract Original Compressed Windows Files
