    Deleted items

    I am running Outlook Express 5. My Deleted Items folder is large (about 5Mb) even though I have no messages visible in the folder when OE5 is up and running and I clean out the Deleted Items folder at the end of each email session.

    Can anyone tell me what is wrong and how I clean out the Deleted Items folder.
    Thanks in advance,
    John Elliot

    go to tools > options > maintainance tab and compact it.

    or cheat and close OE, locate the deleted items. dbx file and delete it. restart outlook and it will be recreated.
