Outlook express shows error 0x800c0133 when receiving mail

Re: outlook express

I had a similar problem. I also got the same error message every time I opened Outlook Express. I called Time Warner about fixing it but they were of no help. They told me to call Microsoft since it is a Windows program. Calling Microsoft is like calling the White House and wanting to talk to the president. Plus my op system (XP Pro) plus my Microsoft Office 2003 program are not 100% legal, if you know what I mean. So Microsoft would be of no help either.

I had a crammed Inbox with 800+ messages, many with large attachments. I could not delete messages, receive mail, move messages to another folder, or do anything to or with the contents of the Inbox.

If you can create a new folder and move mail messages that you may want to keep to a new folder, great! But I could not.

The fix went like this:

1- Open Outlook Express

2- Left click Tools, then Options (at the bottom of the Tools drop down menu), then left- click the "Maintenance" tab at the top of the page.

3- That opens a page with a "Store Folder" button near the bottom right.

4-Left-click the "Store Folder " button. That opens a page showing the location of folders in Outlook Express such as your Inbox.

5-Highlite that bar showing the location (The bar starts out with C:\Documents and Settings\ME\ Local settings\etc.) On your keyboard push "Ctrl C", copying the contents of the bar that you just highlighted and putting it in "Notepad". Close completely out of Outlook Express.

6-Click "Start" and then click "Run". In the bar that opens put your cursor there and on your keyboard push "Ctrl V" which will put the contents of what you just copied in the previous step in the box. Click "Okay". This will open a list of files ona page with file extesions such as ".dbx" after them.

7-Delete "Inbox.dbx". Also delete "Deleted Items.dbx". This will delete the contents of your Inbox and Deleted Items as well as the folders themselves. All of your old mail will be gone. But you didn't need it anyway, right?

8- Close this page.

9-Re-open Outlook Express. You will have a new Inbox and a new Delighted Items folder, but they will be empty. Outlook Express, by default, will have created a new Inbox and Delighted Items folder for you, folders that is not corrupted like the last one, but empty, ready to receive mail.

Re: 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.

How can I get my e-mail account to unfree

If you no longer can send or receive emails, there are a couple of possible reasons for this:
1. Your internet connection is down or you have it deselected or have it misconfigured. If you used wifi, your wifi may be off.
2. You have lost your email settings and need to revisit and re-enter the information. (Choose Mail>Preferences>Accounts (button) and start entering your email address, the mail server address, your password, etc.

W e have moved and E-Mail address has changed.

Hello. What email client (program) are you using. You'll need to know your new email address and your new email password.

If you use Outlook 2013 you will set up a new account under File & Account Settings. For older Outlooks go to Tools, Account Settings.

Would like to cancell mail subscription

At the bottom of the emails which you receive there should be instructions to unsubscribe - sometime just sending an email to the company with unsubscribe in the subject will also do it.

Reinstall your e-mail software. Trash your e-mail preferences, but make a copy first. Then restart your computer, then your e-mail program and try to pull mail off your server again.

This is a philips laptop problem.

Thats strange that the email client "Outlook" express changing on you or is it some other Client you are using.. I did a google search about your laptop and its quite a stunning laptop. I dont think you need any updates but you need to check to see if your windows updates are frequent they help alot. Your keyboard may need cleaning ie under they keys there could be a sticky one causing your problem. I wish I was sitting in the front of this are no problems they need to know you are the master after all your one thats using it. If you still have problems the install WINXP disc in the CD rom drive switch off switch on and let the disc go right through the end then press "R" for console type chkdsk on the command line and let Windows fix any problems when it finishes take out the disc and start normal see what happens. If it still does the same theres a virus lurking?
