Are you unable to receive emails in your outlook express?

Okay, you need to carry out the following steps:

1) Close Outlook Express. Then go to Start > Search > For Files or Folders > All Files and Folders.
2) In the search field, type in outbox.dbx; below that, click on 'Advanced Options', then check all of the following in Type of File > All Files and Folders:
Search system folders
Search hidden files and folders
Search subfolders
Now, click on 'Search' accordingly.
3) In the search results that comes up, delete all of the .dbx files, if present.
4) Now, restart Outlook Express; the deleted files should be recreated automatically.
5) Now that you are done with it, see if that solves your problem.

Tell me if the issue is not solved.

I've allready renamed my file inbox.dbx to oldinbox.dbx....Does this change your instructions.....
Did you carry steps 1 through 5? Did you delete all .dbx files?

Edited by allknower on 6/20/2010 at 1:42 PM EST
In WinXP, Win2K & Win2K3 the OE user files (.DBX and .WAB) are by default marked as hidden. To view these files in Windows Explorer, you must enable Show Hidden Files and Folders under Start | Control Panel | Folder Options | View. With OE closed, find the DBX file for the folder in question {Inbox.dbx} and delete it. A new one will be created automatically when you open OE.

A precaution generally for OE is that you should not archive mail in default OE folders. They will eventually become corrupt.

Deleted all files in my Outlook Express folder...... Problem Solved......since this chat started yesterday, will I be charged twice......I expect to see a charge of $38 on my VISA card.......Correct?.......


Thankyou for a great job......


Gary Naslund

You are welcome. No you will not be charged twice since the problem was solved within the timeframe given by you. Also, since your question's worth $38 then that means that the same will charged to you.

Don't forget to leave a positive feedback.

Some important precautions I thought to share with you:

Do not archive mail in default OE folders. They will eventually become
corrupt. Create your own user defined folders for storing mail and move your
mail to them. Empty Deleted Items folder regularly. Keep user created
folders under 100MB, and Default folders as empty as is feasible.

After you are done, follow up by compacting your folders manually while
working *offline* and do it often.

Click on Outlook Express at the top of the folder tree so no folders are
open. Then: File | Work Offline (or double click Working Online in the
Status Bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until
the compacting is completed.

Turn off e-mail scanning in your anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer
of protection that eats up CPUs and causes a multitude of problems such as
time-outs and account setting changes.
continue to protect you sufficiently
