When you attempt to get the properties of the Microsoft Exchange ClientInbox, 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 andFax icon in Control Panel even though right-clicking the inbox results inthe above error message.
This problem occurs because the Mlshext.dll file is corrupted or missingfrom the Microsoft Exchange Client program directory.
To resolve this problem, copy the Mlshext.dll file from the Windows 95disks using the Windows 95 Extract tool. The Mlshext.dll file is containedin the Microsoft Windows 95 client setup cabinet file, Exchng2.cab, or inthe Windows 95 setup cabinet file, Win95_06.cab. By default, the MicrosoftExchange Client is installed in the following directory, and that is wherethis file should be copied to:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Exchange\

For information about using the Extract tool, type "Extract" at a Windows95 command prompt, or see the following article in the Microsoft KnowledgeBase:
