Ms-Outlook Express 5.0 errror

Try this:

Do a search for the file "Deleted Items.dbx " (no parenthesis). Rename it or delete it.

Start Outlook Express. This will rebuild the Deleted Items file.

Try deleting a message.

There are various reasons for file corruption. Some have suggested turning off the option to Compact Messages in the Background (Tools->Options->Maintenance) and using File->Folder->Compact All Folders regularly.

Let us know what happens.
