Contact your service provider you may have too many messages to allow you to get into outlook

There should be a back door that will allow you in to delete messages not needed.

Cant delete email in Outbox of Outlook express


Hi,

Stranger things have been known to happen to folks using Outlook Express, but I'm sure that's little comfort to you now. Here are some things you can try to remove the offending item from your inbox.
  • First, have you made sure that you are current with Windows Update patches and fixes? There are a bunch of nasty bugs in Outlook Express that can leave you open to attacks from specially formatted emails -- with or without attachments. Some viruses can be activated and spread to others just by viewing a message in the preview pane, but ONLY if you are using an old, unpatched version of Outlook.

  • Next, is your anti-virus protection up to date? If your service has expired, renew it ASAP. Or check with your ISP to see if they offer any free anti-virus software.

  • Try turning off the preview pane in Outlook (use View / Layout and UNcheck Show Preview Pane). Then right-click the offending message and select Delete.

  • Some users report success with pressing the Shift and Delete keys after highlighting the message. Note: This technique will delete the message without sending it to the Deleted Items folder.

  • Finally, it's possible that the undelete-able email does not contain any harmful content, but attempting to open it triggers a flaw in your anti-virus scanner. If you are certain that the email is a harmless message from a known person (and they are using anti-virus software), you could try suspending your anti-virus program, then attempt to delete the message.

  • Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

    Can't delete anything from Outlook Express


    try to highlight the email you want to delete and press shift+delete this will permanently delete the email.

    If this solution works that means your trash folder is already corrupted.

    You might want to use different email client like Eudora, MS Office Outlook, Thunderbird.

    My delete button stopped deleting emails in Outlook Express


    You may have maxed out your storage. Try moving the deleted messages to a new folder if working with Outlook Express you can save the messages. Moving messages to Trash still counts toward your storage. If using Web mail, download and save the messages to a folder. Once done, you can safely delete these messages, freeing up your server for more traffic.

    Messages arrive in the deleted items folder


    It sounds like this could be an issue of Message Rules.

    Open Outlook Express.


    Go to the menu at the top and Choose Tools >Message Rules> Mail

    At this point, the 'Message Rules' dialog opens. Check all your Message Rules to see if there are any Message Rules that direct email to either the 'Deleted Items' folder or to an non-existing folder.

    Select the Message Rule, click 'Delete' to remove it from the list and click 'OK' to close the 'Message Rules' dialog.

    Note: If you did not find a problematic Message Rule, please delete all your Message Rules, as they may be corrupted.

    Please let us know if you are still having trouble after this process. If this information was helpful, please take a moment to rate the solution.

    Outlook express 6.0 outbox problems


    This is a common problem with outlook express. The files have become too large for outlook express. I recommend blowing out all the emails. Try first empty the deleted items. If it will not delete. You need to find the folder associated with this identity. That would be in C drive then documents and settings then your username then application data (hidden folder) then identities. There will be a folder with a crazy name of numbers and letters. Go into this folder and you will see your inbox folder and outbox, sent box etc. Delete the folders that you dont have important emails in and this will dump that whole box. Make sure outlook express is closed when you do this. When you reopen outlook express it will recreate these folders empty. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

    I have outlook Express 6, when I try to delete any messages in the in box it will not let me. I hit delete and it will not delete. When I try to move it to a folder it says error occured. I need to...


    Try removing Outlook Express and reinstalling it. Go to control panel, select add remove programs, then add remove windows components. Uncheck the Outlook Express box and restart. The system once rebooted will boot wwithout outlook express. Then go back and recheck the box, reboot and this will reinstall outlook express. That should fix the problem.

    Make note that unless you backup your email you are going to lose all emails you do not back up so I recommend a backup first.

    Let me know how it works out.

    Attachments to E-mail won't come up


    Turn Off Attachment Blocking in Outlook Express 6.1 SP1 Introduction Many viruses are transmitted through files attached to e-mail messages. For this reason, blocking of attachments is now a standard feature of many e-mail programs, including Outlook Express 6.1 SP1. Attachment blocking has been available in Outlook Express for some time, but it is now turned on by default.
    When using Outlook Express to read your e-mail, you may notice a yellow message stating: “OE removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail: filename(s).” Please note that the attachment is still included in the message, you simply cannot access it because of a security restriction that can be turned off. These instructions explain how to turn off this restriction.
    Procedure
    1. In Outlook Express, select the Tools menu, and click Options.
    2. Select the Security tab, clear the Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus check box, and click OK.

      f4b8581.gif
    3. You should now have access to all attachments in your e-mail messages. Remember, you should never open an attachment unless you are certain it does not contain a virus. It is recommended that you save the file first, and then open it from the saved location.

    I think the problem is from your sender. Is the message sent from a personnel email address or from a corporate address? I asked because where I worked, we could make rules to send messages and sometimes those rules were causing that type of problem.
