Have you tried that? A Short-Media community © 2003–2016. by Carol~ Forum moderator / November 18, 2007 2:39 PM PST In reply to: Carol... Do you use Thunderbird? my review here
Re Thunderbird it is free and in my opinion more secure than OE, its relatively simply, but like any "New" program there will be a learning curve. 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.

A job well done!*she* Flag Permalink This was helpful (0) Collapse - Hi Carol.... I just tried that and got thrown completely: my test folder (called VERY OBVIOUS TEST FOLDER so I couldn't miss it) didn't turn up in *any* of the Identity directories!

What on earth could be going on here? I have absolutely no idea what any of the above means, but I guess in some way it may relate to the Snagit program If I can provide any more info he has a vested interest in getting this fixed. https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/outlook-express-6-can-t-delete-or-move-messages-271697/ Steve..In case you're still interested, a new version of SiteAdvisor ( 18.104.22.16853) was released, which seems not to cause a problem with OE.
Found that I can create a new folder and move or drag and drop to it and then delete the new folder but also not desirable. I use it also. No, create an account now. Also, I had CallingID link verifier installed, which always worked fine but when I just tried to upgrade, the new version could not register itself and I am thinking it is

Say hello! http://gsbook.org/outlook-express/outlook-express-could-not-be-started-message-store.php A squared was downloaded; it showed some medium risk findings associated with Party Poker. JUst make sure not to delete the active one. I don't feel like you are deserting me, at all.
Move the messages you want to keep into a folder that is not a subfolder of the Inbox just in case something goes wrong or you have to end up deleting I've read numerous favorable comments on Thunderbird and, from screen shots of it I've seen on the web, I believe it's more like OE than Outlook. If you look under Help and "About e-mail addresses and privacy" next to where one would sign in, you'll see where it says, "The default address"[email protected] discussions.microsoft.com will be used when get redirected here What shall I now do?
So I appreciate the fact that you offered to post there. I had to use ctrl-alt-del to get out. You asked if I'd ask around.
I will keep an eye on the new thread you provided and give it a try if no one reports any problems in the next few days. Or if you have ever used more than one Outlook Express Profile, you will have an identity folder for each one. in his second paragraph and also the ensuing posts.

I don't recall editing my registry, but the 18,000 number seems significant to me. Try, with Outlook Express NOT RUNNING, going to: C:\Documents and Settings\
I have messages waiting that I can't get. Let me know how that goes. It began downloading into the inbox! Lev, Sep 20, 2007 #2 Conklin Private First Class There are many scattered error messages under "application", dated today, yesterday and some dating back a month.
But, all that does is remove it from the programs list and remove shortcuts or icons leading to it; it doesn't uninstall actual program files. I don't know if it's going help, but it certainly can't hurt. Next, is your anti-virus protection up to date?

Read the entire thread; the first one especially. Then we can manually delete the inbox. I usually delete this message, if I encounter them as such.

Thanks so much! You will need to delete the INBOX.dbx. (Your OS may be set to hide the 3 letter extensions, so it may just say INBOX.") If you do not see these files, Please note, because you have the same error message, does NOT necessarily mean you have the same problem.
