Deleting DBX files

  Duchess8 19:43 22 Mar 2007

I read someplace that .DBX folders such as inbox, outbox and sent mail can be deleted and that they would be recreated. Is this true?

Mine are very heavy in size and I'd like to clean them up and start fresh.

Thanks for any and all help.

It would probably be easier to go into the folders, sort them by your desired criteria, select and delete.

Yes it's true
If you delete them they will be recreated next time you start up Outlook

Outlook Express. Outlook uses a PST file.
