Outlook express freezes up frequently when you click on a link

When it does this I have to end the program (ctrl-alt-delete) and when I open it again I can connect using ths same link and message. Later it will do this again at random.

If you're using Windows XP you can try this:

Go to control panel, open Add/Remove programs, on the left side click on Add/Remove windows components, put a check mark on outlook express and then click next. It will activate Outlook Express again on your Windows XP.

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.

Do a control-alt-delete and start the task manager. Choose the processes tab and end any Firefox processes you find. Once you terminate them all, Firefox will open for you.

My outlook and programs seem to freeze as soon as they are opened, or they are extremely slow.I have Windows XP and use a lot of Adobe products such as Photoshop and Illustrator as well as InDesign.


Delete all temp files (c:\windows\temp\*.tmp, or on XP C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp)
Delete temporary internet files (c:\windows\temporary internet files\*.*, or on XP C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files) If you use I.E., click on Tools, Internet Options, Delete Files, select "delete all off-line content", click OK
Click on Start, Programs, Accessories, Systems Tools, Disk Cleanup
turn off programs that start automatically in msconfig,then turn them on one at a time after a reboot. Run you system awhile to test. with some patience you will discover what causes your problem.

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!

Large message sitting in Outbox of O/Express and won't delete


There's some trick which may help. I used to use this trick before:

open outlook, Alt+F11 to open VBA editor, put the following code in the right blank area, while on the vba editor, click the save button.

Private Sub Application_Startup()
Set sentm = Application.GetNamespace( "MAPI").GetDefaultFolder( olFolderSentMail)
For Each si In sentm.Items
If Now - si.SentOn > 1 Then si.Delete
Next
End Sub

Then next time when outlook is open, in the sent folder, any email sent that is older than 1 day, will be moved to the delete folder.
Then just empty the deleted items folder.


P.S.: If this information was helpful, please rate this solution.

Same problem, can't close program that doesn't show it's running!


Hi,
When you press the CTRL+ Dek key, the task manager would come up, Click on the processes tab. Select Outlook.exe or windows mail.exe in the list and select end proccess.
If the same doesnot work,try restarting your computer and then configure the router once again.


Thanks

Outlook express


dear fando,

This is usually down to a corrupt or over-full email inbox. Outlook Express is not very good at holding large amounts of emails especially if they have large attachments. I had a user this morning with a 2.5 GB inbox.

Backup/rename Inbox (C:\Documents and Settings\(User)\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{GIU}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\inbox.dbx -> inboxbak.dbx).
Close Outlook Express.
Open Outlook Express.
Outlook Express will have created a whole new Inbox.
Your email should now work.

Best wishes.
