Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
My Outlook Express keeps giving me the pop-up message
"To free up disk space, Outlook Express can compact messages. This may take up to a few minutes."
OK / Cancel
When I cancel, it just pops back up with a ding sound. The more I try to cancel it the faster it pops back up until after a while the dinging sound repeats so rapidly it sounds like a continuous phone ringing. The only way I can stop any of this is by closing Outlook Express, but it happens again every time I launch the program. The same pop-up appears once when I boot up my computer even though OE has not yet been launched.
It all started a few weeks ago when the pop-up appeared and I clicked "OK" but interrupted it before it had finished compacting.
Prepared to abandon OE, so I downloaded Mozilla Thunderbird, but I cannot figure out how to set up Thunderbird to access my hotmail accounts.
Unchecking oe in indexing seems to have removed the
continous dinging thanks

Have you installed any Desktop Search?
Apparently, if its set to index OE, it invisibly opens and closes OE
every few minutes in order to the index the OE message store. After 100
open/closes OE will start prompting you about compacting.
pls try this
go to Control Panel, and click on INDEXING OPTIONS. If Outlook Express
is checked for all users at ur Windows XP workstation .
MODIFY and clear the check boxes.
