Can't delete emails



07-09-2005, 11:19 PM
Recently, I have been unable to delete emails from my inbox.

I usually just delete them with the delete key, but this is no longer
working. Nothing happens when I hit the delete key.
I have also tried to delete the emails by right clicking on the email then
deleting, but this does not work either.
I have also tried to amnually move the emails to the delte folder but the
program will not let me do that.

HELP

Do not store emails in your default folders such as Sent Items or Inbox. Go
to View/Layout/untick Preview Pane and see if you can't delete the email
that way. Then move everthing you want to save to user created folders that
are sub folders to Local Folders.

Tools>options>maintenance>store folder and note the location.
Close OE.
In Windows Explorer, navigate to the place noted and delete Deleted
Items.dbx
Re-open OE and all should be well.

Note that you may have to enable "show hidden files and folders" under
control panel>folder options>view before you can find and delete the
folder, depending on your operating system.
