Win2000 / Outlook Express v 6.00.2600.00 has stopped removing sent mail from outbox (to sent) on (or around) 23/4/2004. constantly says unsent mail (but all recipients have got it) and if you send a new email all those sent after 23/4/2004 go again. can copy them to sent via right click - but that doesn't help as can't then delete them from outbox !

Sorry to repost but there weren't any suggestions last week!

deleting teh files referred to in teh other thread didn't help, and repairing the IE application also failed to resolve.

However manually deleting outbox.dbx after using OE to send mail has achieved the desired effect.

Next step is a complete remove/reinstall OE next time I can get down to the aflicted machine.

thanks again
