    cannot delete OE msg (Outlook Express 6)

    I have over 400 emails in my inbox and when I try to delete one (or more), OE simply would not respond at all. I can move these msg to a folder (created inside OE) and then delete the folder. I just simply cannot delete the msg directly.

    Has anyone encountered the same problem before?

    Thanks

    Do you mean there is one specific email you can not delete, or you cannot delete any message (or selection of messages) in your inbox?

    Hi Leif,

    None of the emails can be deleted. I have to move them to a folder first and then delete the folder.

    Are you able to drag and drop items from your Inbox to the Deleted Items folder ??

    Not to the deleted item folder, has to be in a folder that I had created. Then I need to delete this folder which goes to the Deleted item folder. I can remove the folder from the Deleted item folder afterward. Very strange.

    My guess would be that your Inbox is too full. Perhaps you could move about half of them into one of those folders you create and see if you can delete from the Inbox then.
