Re: how to recovery deleted sent item in oe-6
It is very unusual for only one folder to cause problems in OE6.
Is the folder missing or is it there but empty?
Are all the other folders ok?
Try sending a new email and see if it appears in the sent folder?
Try doing a full virus scan.
Clear out old temporary internet files.
Check that OE is operating correctly and not freezing.
You could try using System Restore to take your computer back to a point when it was working correctly.
If the folder is missing completely, it could be that OE6 has been corrupted by a virus and is unable to read the folder. All the OE folders on your hard drive have the extension .dbx. You can search for them using find files and folders. You will only be able to open them with OE.

The iPhone 4 makes it possible to be interconnected and synced up, so you
do not have to fear losing data or files again if you engage in some
preparation. Accidentally deleted items from your iPhone 4, or even
breaking or losing the device, does not mean that your data are gone for
I believe you need to delete the Deleted Items.dbx file because it is most likely corrupted that's why you're having problems when deleting something on your OE.
To delete the DBX, do the following.
You need to have Hidden files and Folders showing. At the top of any folder(My Documents for example) click Tools>Folder Options>View tab. Scroll down the list and place a check next to "Show Hidden Files and Folders" then click Apply and OK.
In OE click on Tools>Options>Maintenance tab>Store Folder. On the Store Location box, highlight the address by pressing the Tab key on your keyboard. Press Control+C (both at the same time) to copy the address to the clipboard. Click Cancel on all boxes and close OE.
Click on Start>Run. Press Control+V (both at the same time) to paste the address into the command line and click OK. The Store Folder containing all the DBX files should open.
In the Store folder, delete the Deleted Items.dbx and close the Store folder. Open OE and see if you can now delete messages
Use RecoveryFix for Outlook Express to recover dbx file which may get
corrupted due to some virus or due to header corruption of dbx files or
sometimes the media where dbx file is stored get corrupted. This tool
recover data even from password protected dbx files. Have a look at this
Open OE and save or move any messages you want in the Inbox. Click on Tools>Options>Maintenance tab>Store Folder. On the Store Location box, highlight the address by pressing the Tab key on your keyboard. Press Control+C (both at the same time) to copy the address to the clipboard. Click Cancel on all boxes and close OE. Click on Start>Run. Press Control+V (both at the same time) to paste the address into the command line and click OK. The store folder containing all the DBX files should open. Find the one named Inbox and delete it. When you next open OE a new Inbox will be created and hopefully that will solve the problem.
Unfortunately, there is no easy way to disable this. The best you can do is delay the messages, or avoid them altogether. I have listed both methods below, and would suggest number 1 over number 2:
Method #1 - In Outlook Express, click on Tools>>Options>>Maintenance. Click on the Cleanup Now button, and then Compact. Doing this regularly will keep you from getting the messages.
Method #2 -
Open the registry (click on Start, Run, type Regedit and click Enter).
Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USERIdentitiesyour identitySoftwareMicrosoftOutlook Express.0.
Look for the registry value titled Compact Check Count. This typically has a value of between 1 and 5, which means Outlook Express will check every 1 to 5 times to see whether you need to compact. Double click on the item, and set the number to 100, so you will only see the message every 100 times you open Outlook Express.
I had this same problem and found this solution (that worked!):
If your "Sent" file folder is overfull (it can only hold about 2G), OE can't file the sent message so it retains it in the "Out" mailbox. To see the size of the files in your "Sent" folder, go to your Outlook Express "Store" folder (in OE click on "Tools/Maintenance/Store Folder" then copy the information that shows where this file is located; then go to "Start/Run" and paste this information into the "Run" window; this will take you to your "Store" folder). Right-click on the file folder titled "Sent Items.dbx." It will show you the file size.
If you have too much information stored in this file folder, go back to your OE view and either delete some files from your "Sent" file folder or move them to a new folder. However, you must then "Compact All Files" (Click on "File/Folder/Compact All") in order to actually clear the space in the folder.
