    Cannot delete (IE 6)

    About once a week I find that I can't delete any emails in the Outlook Express Inbox. The only solution I've found is to "Repair" Internet Explorer 6. Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Jon

    In Outlook, this can be caused by retaining a huge number of deleted messages, but I have no idea if this is relevant to OE.

    Going to Tools>Options>Maintenance and ticking "Empty messages from the 'Deleted Items' folder on exit" might help.
