Jan, How many messages do you have all in all as far as you know , do you have in all your Outlook Express??? Inbox, Outbox, Sent Messages, Deleted Messages and any other folder you may have created????? You might simply have too many messages and if your PST file [ that is the file that holds all your OE messages has reached or is close to the 2GB limit then you may have a corrupt email folder. Read these for further info - http://www.slipstick.com/problems/scanpst.htm Also which version of OE and which Win are you running??? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TTFN Vic "To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ -----Original Message----- From: pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Jan L. Hodges Sent: Sunday, 02 February, 2003 17:12 To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx I am unable to delete messages from Outlook Express since yesterday evening. When I attempt to access the delete file, there is a message saying either low disk space of low memory is the cause. But neither situation is true. I haven't deliberately altered any settings and any changes made to the computer were earlier in the week when I uninstalled AVG in favor of Norton SystemWorks. Is there somewhere to set the amount of space allotted for deleted messages or mail in general? Thanks, Jan --- Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free.
