You can't stop this from happening but

You can't stop this from happening but you can work around it Edit this reg key and set count to 0 . What happens is once you have opened Outlook express 100 times it opens the compression dialog box all you can do is reset the count to 0.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\{31391EF3-B3AC-4F12-94D8DC2DA45E9526}\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0] Compact Check Count (set DWORD to 0)

Thank you, rickyse

I like OE6, but one of the SP2 rollup patches inflicted this miserable popup on us, and it's been impossible to kill it.

I'll try your solution today. You are hereby officially added to my Contacts list, and you are my hero of the day...

A variant

by nepenthe0 In reply to You can't stop this from ...

I'm using XP MCE (2005) which has OE v.6 installed. My Registry looks a bit different, but I think this hack will do the same thing as suggested by rickyse:

{372CBAB5-1865-4DAE-8477-AA40B88AB9EA}\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0\Compact Check Count [default decimal value 86]

I followed rickyse's advice and set the decimal value to [0]. So far, OE behaves normally.
