Again:

1. Click on Outlook Express at the top of the folder tree.

2. File/work off line

3. View/Layout/untick Folder List and Outlook Bar.

4. File/Folder/Compact all folders.

Go back to View/Layout and retick the Folder List and Outlook Bar if you use
that. Go back on line with File/Work online.

Done

Happens to me constantly, only because I am too hasty.
If I wait for 10-15 seconds compacting goes OK.
