OE6 problem deleting mail

  Mavro 13:03 19 May 2004

I have an intermittent problem with OE6. On occasion, when I try to delete an email by either highlighting it and pressing the delete key, or after opening the mail and clicking on the delete button on the tool bar, an ‘warning’ message pops up. The message says ‘! The message could not be deleted’. If I try to drag the message from the inbox to the deleted file a message pops up saying ‘The selected message(s) could not be moved’. ‘An error has occurred’. When I try to open the deleted items file it opens but doesn’t show any content. The only solution is to reboot which corrects the problem for a while. I have noticed that if I access the internet through Internet Explorer and then return to OE the problem reoccurs. It also reoccurs spontaneously. I presume I need to reload OE after making a backup…(what’s the best way??). Is there a simpler solution?? I have loaded Adware 6, Spyblaster and Spybotsearch but that hasn’t cured it. Any ideas??
