Could be some corruption in your mail profile. Close OE. Double click on the MAIL icon in control panel. Remove the profile. You won't lose any data. Now when you go back into OE, it will ask you to create a new profile. No biggie just next next finish.

Can not delete inbox


Inbox is a folder in your E-mail client where newly arrived messages are collected. If you do not delete them or transfer them to some other folder, that is where they stay. You can empty it.
Open the Inbox, select the messages you do not want and delete them. You can also open the Inbox, point to a message (any message), select it then type CTR +A. All messages in the mailbox will be selected. Now press the DEL button and confirm the deletion.
A more radical way to get rid of the Inbox is to delete all your E-mail accounts, followed by uninstalling your E-mail client (Outlook, ThunderBird, etc.)

Outlook Express. Can not delete items from the inbox?


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.

Good morning, I am having a problem with my outlook inbox. I have an email that is hangup my inbox & because I have the settings on preview it always opens on this email to make out look unresponsive...


Shrink the preview window to "zero" or change the preference setting to avoid having the preview window open automatically. You may have to be disconnected from the Internet or your local network or server to do this. After you eliminate the preview window you can reconnect to the network and delete the problem email from the list before you reopen the preview window. Do not open the problem email from the or the system may freeze again.

OE sending back deleted emails


If you look under the accounts section of OE, you should see something under the servers tab that says 'save copy on server'. Make sure this is unchecked and the system will stop caching deleted mail.

hi,

Error 0x800c0133 when you are retrieving email with your Outlook Express (OE) is because of currupted Inbox file.
To remedy please follow these steps:
  1. Open OE, on the left pane, right click "Local Folders", select "New Folder...", specify a name for your new folder as "Temp".
  2. If you are still able to access "Inbox", move all mails in "Inbox" to the new "Temp" folder.
  3. Go to menu "Tools" -> "Options" -> "Maintenance" tab -> "Store Folder" button. It will show the location of your Inbox file, please remember this location.
  4. Close OE, go to the location mentioned above, delete the file "inbox.dbx".
  5. Restart OE, the "Inbox" folder should be auto recreated. Move back your mails to the new "Inbox", remove the "Temp" folder.
or

Another solution
Error Number:0x800c0133


Error Number: 0x800C0133 = a corrupt Inbox.

Move any mail you wish to save to a local folder you create. Then:

Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store Folder will reveal the location of
your Outlook Express files. Press the Tab key to highlight the folder
location, then Ctrl+C. Close OE, then Start | Run | Ctrl+V will put the
location in the box - Click OK and you'll see the OE files. Otherwise, write
the location down and navigate to it in Windows Explorer.

In WinXP, Win2K & Win2K3 the OE user files (DBX and WAB) are by default
marked as hidden. To view these files in Windows Explorer, you must enable
Show Hidden Files and Folders under Start | Control Panel | Folder Options |
View.

With OE closed, find the DBX file for the folder in question {Inbox.dbx} and
delete it. A new one will be created automatically when you open OE.

General precautions for Outlook Express:

Do not archive mail in default OE folders. They will eventually become
corrupt. Create your own user defined folders for storing mail and move your
mail to them. Empty Deleted Items folder regularly. Keep user created
folders under 100MB, and Default folders as empty as is feasible.

After you are done, follow up by compacting your folders manually while
working *offline* and do it often.

Click on Outlook Express at the top of the folder tree so no folders are
open. Then: File | Work Offline (or double click Working Online in the
Status Bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until
the compacting is completed.

Turn off e-mail scanning in your anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer
of protection that eats up CPUs and causes a multitude of problems such as
time-outs and account setting changes. Your up-to-date A/V program will
continue to protect you sufficiently. For more, see:
http://www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3

In Tools | Options | Maintenance: Uncheck Compact messages in background and
leave it unchecked.

How to recovery deleted sent item in oe-6


Hi Shreedhar.bh

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.

Error: P-1


I had this problem on a Fusic (LX-550). The error occurs because a picture mail is corrupted that you're currently trying to preview (inbox). The Fusic inbox shows 3 pic mails at a time. If one of the three is bad, you'll get that error. If the bad pic mail is the most recent in the inbox, then send 3 pic mails to yourself to bump the bad one to number 4. This should allow you to get to your inbox without the error, although you still have to avoid the bad pic mail page(move up in the inbox to see you're oldest mail). Sending pic mails to yourself one at a time is one method of narrowing down the bad pic mail. The permanent fix is to install bitpim, edit->detect phone, view->view file system, navigate to /EPM/MediaStore/MessageStore and delete the offending pic mail. The file name with the highest number is probably most recent. Right click on the file and perform a hex dump to read the message time stamp. Do a backup first and view the hexdump to verify you're deleting a pic mail file. Good luck!

Outlook express 6 inbox file size doesnot change


When the file size reaches about 2GB, OE6 and lower break and corrupt the file. Not sure about OE7. IIRC there is a tool you can download from the MS site which will truncate the file back to a size where inbox repair is possible but inevitably you will lose some emails. Also, when you delete emails in OE, it does *not* free the space - it just puts a marker on the email to say it's deleted, then makes a copy of the message in the Deleted Items folder. To free the space, you need to run "Compress folders" (Menu File -> Folder -> Compress all folders).
