Vic, I have been trying not to let messages pile ups so my delete folder was completely empty. It was when I attempted to delete all the messages in a folder that I realized something was wrong. Then I checked the delete folder and read that either disk space or memory was low. I can't even delete a single message I am using Win98 and OE 6.00.2800 In the past few weeks I have had problems with mail hanging up while downloading. So much so that OE would start over and before I could catch it I would sometimes have six or seven copies of the same messages. Which is another reason I began staying on top of deleting messages right away. It would be so difficult that I would have to log on to the web, sort through the mail and delete it there before I sould start OE downloading to the appropriate folders. So time consuming. With the problem now deleting mail, I wonder if it is a problem with OE requiring removal and reinstallation. Thanks again and I will be checking out the link you sent now.
