Hi all,

First thing this morning all was fine and then out of the bllue the delete button on OE6 refuses to delete emails. I have tried to MOVE them to deleted box, but when I let go of the email up pops a reply to that email box.

Im using XP Pro and IE8

AAAAAACCCCCCCCHHHHHHHHHH I dont need this.

What do I do?

Rename deleted.dbx to deleted.dbx.sav and restart OE.

oo ta .. I dont know the guts of the comp well enough to rename files like that .. scares me silly that does.
However one of the instructions on that page helped .. shift/delete .. does the job.

I hate computers sometimes GRRRRRRRRRR

Thanks

Shift-del bypasses the deleted folder so the problem remains. Maybe you can find someone to do the bizzo for you?

OO yeh so it does hehe

Ive discovered when I open local folders the deleted box isnt there. Im looking in windows explorer at the moment - and I cant see a file for deleted items.

DUH has it just GONE???

Where are you looking in Explorer - the files are well hidden!
