I can't delete emails from my Inbox on my outlook file Express 6. I can read them and then they show that I have, however none will remove.

[I swear to you that I had already answered in this post!]

1. move all the messages that you want to keep out of the folders Inbox, sent items and deleted items and in other local OE folders have created you for archiving (backup) of such messages.

2. Note the location of the store of your identity (http://www.insideoe.com/files/store.htm#storemain).

2B. turn on "Show hidden folders and files" via start | Control Panel | Folder options | View (see http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial62.html).

3. close OE.

4. in Windows Explorer, navigate to your storage folder, find & delete the files Inbox.dbx , Outbox.dbx, Sent Items.dbxand Deleted Items.dbx.

5 empty the trash.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To avoid such problems in the future, comply with the following restrictions:

N ' not use Inbox or sent items to archive messages.  Move them to local folders created for this purpose.

-Empty the deleted items folder daily.

-Frequently perform a manual compact of all OE while records that "work offline".  More on http://www.insideoe.com/files/maintain.htm

-Do not cancel automatic compacting, where it would happen and do not try to close OE via Manager tasks or stop your Automatic compaction machine can take place.

-Disable e-mail scanning in your antivirus application.  It can cause corruption (i.e., loss of messages) and offers no additional protection:

  • When I try to use my e mail on outlook express, it will not let me delete my messages read. also I'm now getting an error code 0x800co133 any ideas on how to solve my problem?

    I tried to restart, assigning to a bygone era, [and who always says it cannot be set to this date and chose another, but that does not work either].

    I tried to restart, assigning to a bygone era, [and who always says it cannot be set to this date and chose another, but that does not work either].

    This is due to floating files, the result of many messages in the Inbox, or lack of compaction.

    Move all messages you want to save out of the Inbox, deleted items, and sent items in local folders, you create. Locate the OE message store and then close OE.

    If there is no message in the Inbox you want to, but can not move after return, before doing anything more.

    Do not archive mail in the receipt or sent items box. Create your own user-defined folders and move messages you want to put in them. Empty the deleted items folder daily. Although the dbx files have a theoretical capacity of 2 GB, I recommend all a 300 MB max for less risk of corruption.

  • Outlook express 6 will not let me the photos 'BEFORE' that I get

    I use Outlook Express 6 and cannot transfer photos that I receive in my Inbox. The pictures show well in my email, but when I send to my friends, only the 'TEXT' is considered. There is a box with an "X" in it where the pictures are supposed to be. Someone know why? I "CHECKED" the function "SEND PICTURES WITH the EMAIL" under
    OPTIONS', 'SEND '.

    For some messages, images coming along well.  Try to send a message with a picture to yourself and then send it to yourself and see if you still get the image.  If Yes, then this is the specific messages you want to convey, that probably doesn't conform to Internet standards.  So instead of the message, use Message | Forward so that attachment, then the images will display correctly.

    I have adobe Premiere elements 13. It will not let me delete audio or do fade in or out. I can move the yellow to the bottom line until the volume reads - 0.0, but the noise is still there during playback. I can click on fade in and fade out and the yellow line that chart volume takes a strong recovery or dip at the beginning or at the end of the clip, but there is no change in volume when I play back. What I am doing wrong?

    Rickey

    Thanks for the follow-up report.

    Just a lit bulb. Maybe the answer, maybe a spleen.

    Look carefully at the audio track of the timeline in the vicinity of title of the file.

    The title of your file audio timeline shows: level of Volume or something else. If something else, click the tiny triangle where

    the red arrow in the screen shot is sharp and select the Volume and then level so that you end up with

    Volume: level as shown in the screenshot.

    Hope it's the factor involved.

  • Oulook Express 6 it has an error and will not let me delete the email

    Original title: OUTLOOK EXPRESS 6 WINDOWS XP

    There out wrong and won't let me delete the email.  He still receives new e-mail.

    no problem viewing or respond.

    Anyone know an easy solution?

    the error code:

    An unknown error has occurred. Account: name, Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, secure (SSL): no, error number: 0x800C0133

    Do as I have indicated above, but instead of moving most of the messages in your Inbox, all move them and delete the Inbox.dbx file as well.

    If you move all messages from the Inbox for a reason, do the above and then come back and move messages in the Inbox and then delete the Inbox.dbx with OE closed box.
