It is not a big problem, you can disable this notification withing 'options' from the main toolbar within Outlook Express.

Be sure to check if you have enough disk space on your computer and consider a 'disk cleanup' too.

This can be accessed from Start / Programs / Accessories / System Tools.

Good luck,

Erik.

Clicking outlook express hyperlinks gives not responding message


First download and reinstall Internet Explorer, that has Outlook Express built in. See Internet Explorer: Get It Now.

If that does not work, do system restore to a date before you started having the problem. See System Restore on Windows XP.

MS Outlook Express


Kumar, I am not sure what the second question is, but the first one seems to be that you are haveing problems sending and receiving mail with outlook express?
Ask the company that provides your internet service (your ISP) to provide you with a file that when run will configure the mail smtp and pop settings. I think you are a novice and the file would be the sim[plest way of achieving your objective.

Update service pack 3 access is denied.


When you launch Windows Updates, don't choose the Express Updates but choose Custom. Then when you are presented with Service Pack 3, there is the option to not select it and then choose to continue to see what other updates there are. Personally, I do not recommend Automatic Updates or Express, always do it manually and always select Custom so an unwanted update doesn't get in under the radar and cause further problems. The rule of "if it isn't broken, don't fix it." really goes well with PC's.

Microsoft Outlook Express compacting pop-up message


Outlook express WILL compact messages stores after every 100 closings, and WILL continue to prompt until you allow it to do so
Compact the files yourself or allow it to occur

/dbx corruption and loss of all messages WILL happen if you do not compact the database,
that is why a hotfix was issued that forces Outloook express to compact

File
Folder
Compact All Folders

Do not interupt the process
