Cant delete email in Outbox of Outlook express


Hi,

Stranger things have been known to happen to folks using Outlook Express, but I'm sure that's little comfort to you now. Here are some things you can try to remove the offending item from your inbox.
  • First, have you made sure that you are current with Windows Update patches and fixes? There are a bunch of nasty bugs in Outlook Express that can leave you open to attacks from specially formatted emails -- with or without attachments. Some viruses can be activated and spread to others just by viewing a message in the preview pane, but ONLY if you are using an old, unpatched version of Outlook.

  • Next, is your anti-virus protection up to date? If your service has expired, renew it ASAP. Or check with your ISP to see if they offer any free anti-virus software.

  • Try turning off the preview pane in Outlook (use View / Layout and UNcheck Show Preview Pane). Then right-click the offending message and select Delete.

  • Some users report success with pressing the Shift and Delete keys after highlighting the message. Note: This technique will delete the message without sending it to the Deleted Items folder.

  • Finally, it's possible that the undelete-able email does not contain any harmful content, but attempting to open it triggers a flaw in your anti-virus scanner. If you are certain that the email is a harmless message from a known person (and they are using anti-virus software), you could try suspending your anti-virus program, then attempt to delete the message.

  • Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

    Outlook emails are blank


    Hi,

    What version of Outlook? Unless I hear otherwise, I'll assume you're running
    Outlook 2007.

    I'm not sure I completely understand what you mean. On a "common" setup,
    going from left to right; you have your Navigation Pane, Message List, and
    then the Reading Pane (Preview Pane).

    What I'm getting out of this is: Your messages are all showing-up in the
    Message List. However, you can't see the actual body of the message in the
    Reading Pane. When you open the message, you still can't see the actual body
    of the message.

    Do I have this right? Or, are you saying there is some Window popping-up
    behind the main Outlook Window and the message Windows when you open a
    message? If so, what is that Window titled? Is there an error or something
    on that Window?

    If the issue is the message body is no longer displaying in the Reading Pane
    or when you open a message, I need to ask if you're using some type of
    anti-virus scanner that is hooking into e-mail. I believe AVG is the popular
    culprit. There is a "Certify Mail" option in AVG we want to disable.

    If there is no AV scanner in-play here (AVG or otherwise), open one of these
    Now, select the Options tab above the Ribbon. What format is highlighted
    here? Plain Text, HTML, or Rich Text? If it's either of the latter two
    formats, try selecting Plain Text (Select Continue on the warning box). Can
    you see the body of the message now?
    Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

    1. see if you have options configured on your outlook that disabled the preview pane
    • Select View | Layout... from the menu.
    • Make sure Show preview pane is checked.
    • Click OK.

    2. I woud also run a clean up (Antivisrus and antimalware may interrupt normal functions of your internet explorer and programs like outlook.

    3. now a way to reset you outlook from the comand prompt (start>run>cmd) is with this command:

    although be cautious that this is a last resort before reinstall.

    the path to the program may be different on your machine so make sure you find where the outlook.exe file resides in your system.

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\Outlook.exe" /CleanViews
    last thing to attempt is:

    4. can you unistalle outlook and reinstall?

    good luck!

    Mail quick view is empty


    Sounds like your preview pane is turned off. If you're using Outlook Express or Vista's Windows mail, it's under view, layout and then choose to view or not. Outlook is similar.

    Graphics/jpeg visible in outlook but will not print.


    Make sure that you are actually opening up the email, and not just previewing it in the reading pane.

    Double click on the actual email to be sure it's open.
