Emails won't delete

  Halfbeat 17:27 03 Apr 2004

My wife has a number of emails that ended up in her deleted folder (spam sent because of message rules/block sender). If she deletes them permanently they re-appear the next time she opens Outlook Express. She has PC-cillin installed & up to date so I don't think it's a virus and there's no othe odd activity. Other emails delete OK but not this group of 4 or 5.
Any clues would be gratefully received-cheers.

Try re-booting into safe mode and delete them from there

Make sure there's no files in the Deleted Items folder that you want to keep. Shut down OE and do a search for Deleted Items.dbx

Delete the file, the next time you start OE it will create a new one.
