Outlook express won't let me use the delete button

My delete button does not allow me to delete any messages by just pushing it. I can click shift+delete and it will. I deleted ALOT of messages from my sents folder and 'delete' folder after that and since then it won't allow me to delete by clicking delete alone?? I know I had a previous problem caused by too many emails not being deleted...but now trying to clear them out has caused another problem.

    I tried it and it didn't work..thanks...but what else might I try?? Delete works in other instances...just not when I try to delete emails!! Very frustrating! I had deleted several emails by using the shift / delete/clicking yes to confirm...but it so time consuming. Help!!

Try removing the delete button. View>Layout>Customize Toolbar button. Click on it in the right pane and then click Remove. Close everything (including OE) and then Reopen OE and Reinstall the button by clicking it in the left pane of the Customize Toolbar window and clicking Add. Let me know if this solved it!

How to auto delete incoming mails that are sent before a specific time, say a week ago?


If using Outlook or Outlook Express, go to the inbox and then click on the column heading that says "Received." This will sort all your messages according to date. Then, use the scroll bars to go to the earliest message you want to delete and click on it. Next, use the scroll bars to find the latest message you want to delete. Press and hold the Shift key, and while continuing to press and hold the shift key, click on this last message. All the messages between these two dates should now be selected. Release the shift key. Finally, immediately press the Delete (sometimes simply labeled "Del") key. This should delete all your messages and put them in the Outlook "Deleted" folder.

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 and my delete icon has dissappered. so I cannot delete my e- mails


Hi,
Do you see your menu's in Outlook Express? If so click with your right mouse button to the right of the menu that says Help. (right-click). Just click somewhere next to the word Help with the right mouse button and you SHOULD get tiny menu that pops up where one of the selections Toolbar.
Choose that Toolbar option with your left mouse button (left click the word Toolbar).
This will possibly allow you to see your missing DELETE button?
Let me know!
Thanks,
Kaj

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