This may work. Open OE then click File, Folder and click Compact All. Close OE, reopen it and try deleting unwanted mail.

Maybe you have a corrupted Mailbox.

You can try: Start>Search Files>type inbox* and 'look in' c:
there you should find an inbox with the extension .dbx

Delete the file (it will be recreated when you next open Outlook Express).

But beware, this action usually means you will lose any Mail in the Mailbox.

the kopite try searching for *.dbx and you should find your Inbox.

To find .dbx files you might need to go into "more advanced options" and tick "hidden files and folders".
