    Notice to compact (OE 6)

    I know this was addressed... I just read through the thread(s) ... It appears that the consensus is/was "Don't worry about it".

    But I am curious, and it is a pain in the ... and therefore I do...

    How come I never saw this before, and now all of a sudden.... I use OE when I'm "doing something" to Outlook, and then switch over. I haven't ever seen this before. Every time I close OE now, it pops up?

    Can't it be disabled, just like space warnings for the disk(s) can be?

    Regards,

    See Compacting and Corruption

    <hr>Now Outlook Express will compact automatically only after you have opened and closed Outlook Express 100 times. It will do so not in the background, when you might be busy doing other things on the computer, but rather when you close Outlook Express for that 100th time. Do not cancel this compaction, nor use your computer until it is finished. For best results however, you should still compact all folders on a regular basis, such as weekly or bi-weekly.

    Dave:

    Uh...duh... I suppose that by NOT compacting, the counter doesn't reset, and thereby pops up every time... uh right?

    Some day my brain may engage with my mouse-clicking finger, but I'm not holding my breath, dontcha know?

    Thanks,
