Outlook Express issue - help!

Hi there,

Please bear with me, I'm new to this forum

I am currently using OE6, and am having some issues with it. Basically, we had alot of sent messages stored in there, and got an error message every time we tried to compress OE. We have deleted everything out of there now, except for 2 emails. They just won't delete, and we don't know what else to do with them, as we think it must be this causing the issue.

Can anyone help??

Cheers, Nick

Are these opened emails ? Have you scanned them with your Anti Virus scanner ? Have you scanned for Malware/Spyware ? Maybe try booting up into safe mode ( press f8 while the PC is booting and scroll down to , and select , safe mode ) and then try deleting from there .

Not sure if it makes any difference to your reply, but they are both sent emails.

I'll try the rebooting thing, and report back.

I had started to move the dbx files, and your post confirmed that, so thanks Santos7.

I have moved them now, but am having issues working out how to use dbxtract - does anyone know?
