Stopping Outlook Express 'compacting' messages

  tenbee 01:25 09 Oct 2008

Hi - Every time I open OE e-mail, I get the message about OE being able to compact messages to save disk space. Help please - how do I permanently stop these messages from appearing ?

Thanks for any advice - tenbee

A quick google suggests you should let this run every time it asks. DO NOT stop it or shutdown the program or PC as this will eventually result in lost or currupted emails.

It's a pain but it looks like there's no easy solution - OE will ask this after it's been started 100 times, after should reset for another 100 sessions...oh an apparently manual run compact all folders doesn't affect the count either!
