Hi All, Can anyone please tell me how to stop Outlook Express from popping up wanting to free up disk space by compressing it EVEN when its not installed. I've had it on numerous computers and it


When messages are deleted in Outlook Express, they are not actually removed from the database containing your email data. Rather, the messages are marked to let Outlook Express know that they can be removed the next time the database is compacted. Compacting the message store is necessary for Outlook Express to maintain a reasonable database and avoid file corruption. Because it is necessary, Outlook Express offers to compact your message store every 100 times the program is used. If you do not compact your message store, the message will continue appearing. Compact the Outlook Express message store manually to remove the message asking if you would like your message store compacted automatically.
Compact the Outlook Express Message Store Manually Launch Outlook Express. Click "File," then click "Work Offline." This disconnects Outlook Express from the Internet temporarily, ensuring that the message store is not in use while you are compacting the database. Note: If you do not want to compact the Outlook Express message store at all, see Section 2. Click "Tools" and then "Options." Click the "Maintenance" tab. Click the "Clean Up Now" button. Click the "Compact" button. This process may take some time depending on when the message store was last compacted. Click "Close" or "OK" to close each window. The offer to compact the Outlook Express message store automatically will no longer be displayed. Click "File" and "Work Offline" to reconnect Outlook Express to the Internet. Compact the message store periodically to prevent the message from being displayed again. Remove the Offer to Compact the Message Store Without Compacting section 2 Press the Windows logo and "R" keys to display the "Run" dialog box. Type "regedit" without quotation marks into the box and press "Enter." This opens the Windows registry editor. Click the plus icons on the left side of the folder tree to navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER," "Identities," "(long string of letters and numbers)," "Software," "Microsoft" and "Outlook Express" folders. Click the "5.0" folder under the "Outlook Express" folder. Find the value named "Compact Check Count" on the right side of the window and double click it. Change the number displayed under "Value data" to "0" and click "OK." Close the registry editor. Outlook Express will not offer to compact your message store again until it has been launched another 100 times. Hope this helps

WHY DOES OUTLOOK EXPRESS INSIST ON COMPACTING FOLDERS WHEN WE CLOSE IT ?


OE has a long and troubled history with compacting folders. In the most current version, OE compacts all folders automatically after you open and close the program 100 times. Compacting folders is absolutely essential for maintaining your files in good working order. Therefore,
Do not interrupt the process once it has begun
It is best not to use your computer at all until the process is complete, which can take a few minutes.
Under no circumstances must you ever use Task Manager to kill the msimn.exe process, or put your computer on Standby, or turn off the power, or use a memory-intensive program while compaction is occurring. Any of those can cause destruction of your files and the loss of your messages.
If you don't like waiting for that 100th closing, you can compact all folders manually at any time. For best results always use this procedure.
1: On the File menu, click Work Offline so that no new messages will be arriving
2: In the Folder list, click on Outlook Express so that no e-mail or news folder is open.
3: Close the Folder list by clicking the X in the upper right-hand corner of the list panel. Alternatively you can click Layout on the View menu, and then clear the checkbox for "Folder List”.
4: On the File menu, point to Folder, and then click Compact All Folders. Do not use your computer until the process is complete, which might take several minutes.
5: If an error occurs, close Outlook Express, re-open it, and begin the process again from the top. If the same error occurs again, close Outlook Express, restart your computer (or log off and then log on again), open Outlook Express and then begin the whole process again.
Unfortunately that does not reset the internal counter to zero, so OE will still compact after the 100th closing You can edit the registry manually to reset the counter, or you can use OE TOOL to compact all folders and reset the counter at the same time. To reset it manually
1: Close Outlook Express and all message windows.
2: Click Start, click Run and type without quotes "regedit".
3: Navigate to this key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\{GUID}\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0
where GUID is the long number used for your Identity
4: In the right-hand pane, double-click "Compact Check Count", then change the value to zero(0).

How to disable Outlook Express 6 Compact message prompt


Unfortunately, there is no easy way to disable this. The best you can do is delay the messages, or avoid them altogether. I have listed both methods below, and would suggest number 1 over number 2:

Method #1 - In Outlook Express, click on Tools>>Options>>Maintenance. Click on the Cleanup Now button, and then Compact. Doing this regularly will keep you from getting the messages.

Method #2 -
  • Open the registry (click on Start, Run, type Regedit and click Enter).
  • Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USERIdentitiesyour identitySoftwareMicrosoftOutlook Express.0.
  • Look for the registry value titled Compact Check Count. This typically has a value of between 1 and 5, which means Outlook Express will check every 1 to 5 times to see whether you need to compact. Double click on the item, and set the number to 100, so you will only see the message every 100 times you open Outlook Express.
- I offer remote control assistance as well! Please send me a note at Info@LoganComputersER.com

Microsoft Outlook Express compacting pop-up message


Outlook express WILL compact messages stores after every 100 closings, and WILL continue to prompt until you allow it to do so
Compact the files yourself or allow it to occur

/dbx corruption and loss of all messages WILL happen if you do not compact the database,
that is why a hotfix was issued that forces Outloook express to compact

File
Folder
Compact All Folders

Do not interupt the process

Outlook Express


It is not a big problem, you can disable this notification withing 'options' from the main toolbar within Outlook Express.

Be sure to check if you have enough disk space on your computer and consider a 'disk cleanup' too.

This can be accessed from Start / Programs / Accessories / System Tools.

Good luck,

Erik.
