Try compacting your Folders Click on File, Folders, Compact All Folders Outlook Express doesn't seem to run very fast. I get lots of not responding messages when using newsgroups when switching between groups. I only use it for Newsgroups. I'm using W98, PII, 350, with 128 mg ram. Any ideas? I recently had to use my restore disk. Everything else seems to work ok.
