    folders in OE6 (Outlook Express 6)

    I have noticed in the identities folder of my hard drive, I have the following files: inbox.dbx, inbox(1).dbx, inbox(2),dbx. I would like to know why there are 1 and 2 for the dbx files.

    Thanks

    Re: folders in OE6 (Outlook Express 6)

    What are the creation/modification dates of these files? It sounds like OE couldn't open the original file (inbox.dbx) at some point and created another (inbox(1).dbx), and then did the same thing again (inbox(2).dbx). You should be able to work out which is the current one by it's date.

    See this article at Mindspring for more info.
