I've had this problem for a week or so. All will be fine as I read my email, then suddenly as I click on a fresh email, Outlook Express shows a message: " The message could not be displayed because of low memory or low disk space." Everything freezes. At the time of the freeze, I usually have about 21GB free space on my hard drive, and CPU usage registers between 5% to 15%. I go back to my home page and all is working normally. Outlook Express stays frozen for maybe a halfhour, then unfreezes and I'm able to complete what I want to do. I'd be grateful for any ideas on what goes wrong.
Thank you everybody who replied. I've had a severe clean-up of my bulging inbox. I've realised that I'm as bad a hoarder on the PC as I am in my flat. ( Well, I just might need those emails....) The Deletion box must have had indigestion - it put up a final "can't display message - check for low disk space" etc. Then it gulped and behaved itself. I'm sure that the problem's been dealt with,and I've made notes of skidzy's suggestions if it recurs. Thanks again.
