You have not clarified how do you try to delete the email and what happens when you delete them.
I believe when you try to delete the email a strikethrough line comes and the message remains intact. If this is the case then you can remove them by following the below step.
Click on the Edit menu, point to Purge Deleted Messages

Are you using Outlook?
open Outlook, then click on help, then on drop down menu, cick on "detect and repair"

If that does not work:
Go to :
Start
Control Panel
Add/Remove programs
when the windows opens up , scroll down to MS Office, then click on change.
A window will open and the second choice should be "repair" You may need to have your MS Office handy.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Tip

The difference between Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express


1 :Outlook Express was developed as part of Internet
Explorer with the home user in mind while Outlook
was developed as part of Microsoft Office with the
corporate user in mind.
2. Outlook Express is a basic Internet mail program
that is part of Internet Explorer and Windows.
Outlook is a full-featured personal information
manager that is available as a part of Microsoft
Office and also as a stand-alone program.
3. Outlook has a host of features that Outlook
Express does not have, such as a calendar,
a task list, a journal, and automatic backup into
archive files.
4. Outlook can be programmed using Visual Basic
for Applications (VBA) but Outlook Express cannot.
5. Outlook also has a very powerful Junk Mail feature
6. Outlook has message rules for both incoming
and outgoing mail, while Outlook Express can
only filter incoming.
7. Outlook Express was designed for use on a single
computer and so its message store and settings
cannot be stored on a server. Outlook however
was tailor-made for networks, and so its message
store can be on a central server that many
machines can access.

I can't delete inbox messages in Outlook express. and it's locked up


If you cannot delete email in Outlook Express and the program crashes frequently the problem might be because of corrupt storage folders - typically, the Inbox and the Deleted Items. As you may know, the email program uses the Inbox to store all incoming email, Sent Items for the messages you have sent and Delete Items for the messages that have been discarded. Now if you cannot delete an email in Outlook Express the cause of your troubles might be faultly or corrupt Inbox or Delete Items folders.
Fixing these two folders is not difficult and for that we need to find out where these folders reside on the hard disk. In the Outlook Express program, go to "Tools" -> "Options" and move to the "Maintenance" tab. You'll find a "Store Folder..." button; click on it. This brings up a small window with the path to the storage folders directory. Use the left mouse button and click to select the entire path. Now right-click and choose the "Copy" option. Close the Outlook Express program.
Open the "Run" program from the "Start" menu and paste the full path (CONTROL-V or right-click -> Paste). The Outlook Express storage folders are hidden files. You may need to force Windows to show them. From the top menu, select "Tools" -> "Folder Options" and then from the "View" tab, check "Show Hidden Files and Folders". Now simply select the Deleted Items.dbx file and send it to the recycle bin. Don't worry; Outlook Express will create a new one when you start it again.
If you still cannot delete the email after manually removing the Deleted Items.dbx file, I suggest you do the same for the inbox storage folder. However, deleting that will also remove all of your store email messages. So first select and drag all the messages in a temporary folder (create on the Desktop); you can then drag them back to the inbox when you open Outlook Express again and it creates the inbox afresh.

Outlook express is trying to send a message with a lot of photos attached. It is unable to do this. How can I delete this message.


Hi,
If your Email is trying to send as soon as you start Outlook Express, you might try this:
Open Outlook Express and go to the top menu, click TOOLS then under that menu, OPTIONS. Under the GENERAL tab, uncheck the box for "Send and receive messages at startup", then click OK.
Close Outlook Express and start it up again. Hopefully this will allow you to delete the Email. Good luck!
