If you have the preview screen option turned on you will need to turn it off. Then you can delete the email.

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.

    Outlook email with attachment, sending problem


    Load Outlook in its safe mode ("outlook.exe /safe"). This ensures:
    - No plug-ins get loaded that might touch the item.
    - Loading Outlook in offline mode means it won't touch the stuck item.
    Delete the stuck item in the Outbox folder.
    Put Outlook in online mode (File -> Work Offline: disable).
    If you restarted Outlook in its safe mode, exit and restart Outlook for normal operation.

    If it's Outlook Express, in OE Tools>Options> Maint tab "store folders" note the location. Go to this location and find the outbox. Delete the .dbx file that goes with it. It will recreate itself on restarting OE.

    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.

    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.

    Outlook Express still sending


    Good Evening:


    Hope that you are wellJ

    Still Stuck in the outbox

    Some emails get stuck in the Outbox and sent again and again; this can mean you’re running out of disk space, so your email can’t move it to the Sent folder. You can try moving it or deleting it, but check whether you’re low on space and delete some old emails. Alternatively use Start, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup to get more space.
    If I can be of further assistance, please let me know

    And, remember; always include the type of Operating System and the type of computer you own, when you submit your questions. It simply makes for much faster solutions.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
