Google recycle bin in DOS..there are some programs you can download to empty the recycle bin from the DOS prompt. The only other suggestion is to reinstall windows. Sounds like you got some corrupted programs.

How do you empty the sentbox in incredimail?


?

A: The 'Deleted Items' folder contains the email messages deleted from your other folders. It is recommended that you empty the 'Deleted Items'folder from time to time, to avoid the build up of old and unnecessary email, which may slow down your email environment.

To empty the 'Deleted Items' folder, simply right-click the folder and select 'Empty 'Deleted Items' Folder'. If the 'Deleted Items' folder is not emptied, please follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the IncrediMail Tray Icon (orange envelope), located in the lower right corner (near the computer clock), and select 'Exit'.
  2. Windows 2000 or XP users: Browse to the following location:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Your Profile(Logon Name)\Local Settings\Application Data\IM\Identities\{Long Number}\Message Store



    Windows 98 or ME users: Browse to the following location:

    C:\Windows\Application Data\IM\Identities\{Long Number}\Message Store
  3. Delete the 'Deleted Items.imm' and the 'Deleted Items.imh' files.
  4. Open IncrediMail. Next time you wish to empty your 'Deleted Items' folder, simply right-click the folder and select 'Empty 'Deleted Items' folder'.

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.

My outlook 2007 has reached max size, I have deleted most archives, but nothing changes. This happened when I tried to download my hard drive


As archives are in a separate PST than your Mailbox (Inbox, Calendar, Sent Items, Deleted Items, Contacts etc), you may need to focus on this section to be reduced. Biggest culprit for used space is deleted Items. Empty this by right clicking and select Empty deleted items folder. Once empty, it is a good idea to archive messages in your Sent Items folder to another PST or Personal Folder. Once you have done these steps, right click your Mailbox Account (icon of House with a minus sign beside it - under All Mail items), and select Properties for "Your Mailbox Name" Click Advanced button, and click Compact now. This will compress your PST file, and remove any space once occupied by any moved or deleted messages. This process could take a while, and should not be interrupted.

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.
