can no longer delete emails in outlook express

  Cessna 19:46 22 Oct 2003

as of today anything in my inbox or sent folders of outlook express will not delete. the red delete cross is still clickable, and the delete option in the right click menu still work, but the actual email will not delete itself. it stays where it is. i have done nothing to my system, not downloaded anything that could have brought a virus in; so i just wondered if anyone had any ideas? if i have to uninstall outlook express and reinstall it, where do i get it from? its always come already on when i got the pc. is it downloadable from somewhere?

Hi Cessna. It could be that your Deleted Items file is corrupted. Find deleted items.dbx with Windows Explorer and delete it. Outlook Express should then rebuild it and hopefully your problems will be over.
