Printing for Outlook Express is set in Internet Explorer. Open Internet Explorer and go to File, Page Setup. Change the left and right margins to .25 inches or more.

How to view corrupted dbx files ?

Deleted items are not in the inbox.dbx anymore, they are in the deleted items.dbx file now.
Were you able to select what folders you want to import from? If so, select the Deleted Items folder so it will be imported. Otherwise, if you can you still open OE, move all the deleted email back to the Inbox.
If those two things don't work, use to Outlook Express Restore Toolbox

Internet Explorer. Use Page Setup in IE to change the margins and that
will fix your problem...

Outlook Express losing inbox messages?

When you start Outlook Express, the contents of your Inbox folder may be missing. The contents may be replaced with a new first-run "Welcome to Microsoft Outlook Express" message. You do not receive a warning that the email messages have been deleted, and the missing email messages are not in the Deleted Items folder.

If it doesn't help, look at the answer here:

Outlook express - inbox mail from the last 6 months disappeared

Do you mean that your inbox has many years of mails and only the 6 months mails went away somehow?

Start OE, click on Tools -> Options -> Maintenence. Then double click the Store Folder path and press Ctrl-C to copy it to clipboard.

Start -> Run then press Ctrl-V and press enter

Check there in case your mails were in different folders. In case there are any numbered files in this folder like inbox[1].dbx .... then we know that is the problem.

There are ways to get the data but first you need to identify.

I want to scan and email a document from my new HP DESKJET F4280 printer. I can scan it, and then I try to share it, but when I hit the send button it says there is no internet connection. Am I right in...

When you scan a document it must be scanned with OCR software. The default scanning method will scan a document as a picture, not a document with letters and words. The OCR software will recognize the letters and put the scanned document in the proper format to open it with MS Word. The software that you scan with should have a setting for OCR, read your instructions or help files to get the details if you can not find them very easy in the software you use for scanning. .

The problem with using Outlook may be that you have not set it up properly to get your emails from your email server. You do not need to use Outlook or Outlook express to send any documents, you can use your web based email server if you like, but you can use Outlook Express as well. You just need to add the document to send as an attachment to the email.

To set up Outlook Express to get your email, you must first find out what the POP3 and SMTP setting you must use. You can get that information from your email provider, it is different for every email provider. Then you go to the "File" menu at the top left of Outlook Express and select "Identities" and select "Add New Identity" and from there you will go thru a wizard to guide you thru the process of setting up your email client. Just make sure you have the POP3 and SMTP settings available for you to put into Outlook Express when prompted to in the wizard.

When I print a message from outlook express, the first letters on the left margin are cut off. I am using standard letter size paper. I have exhausted the remedies suggested by Help. This problem only...

When you print a email. do it from file - print, check the page range, make sure all is checked, look into the preferences make sure the right size of paper is set. It must be a setting in outlook.

Can't print from emails or greeting cards

Just for posterity, do you have an adobe printer? If so, try printing the email or greeting card to that, making a pdf of it, and then printing to the printer. If that works, my next question is what email program are you using? Is it Outlook, Express, or web based (or other)? If it is Outlook or express, try running detect and repair. Please let us know if you need assistance for that. Check for updates to your programs as well.
