Can anyone offer any advise on how to stop the following message which is prompted via Outlook - "To free up space outlook express can compact messages, this may take a few minutes" The strange thing is i don't even use outlook. I have already done some research and can see lots of others have had the same issue. I have tried to several things to remedy the issue including
1. Accessing the registry editor i have changed the compact count value data to 1 after changing the base to decimal.
within Outlook i have chosen the option to work offline.
I made the mistake of phoning an MS Outlook Support line who were more interested in selling me products and support services - needless to say they were no help!!
Can anyone suggest anything else to prevent this annoying message?
