View Full Version : Undeleted e-mails



06-05-2002, 09:42 PM
When exploring C:\Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook Express
I found 9 files with .dbx extensions, totalling 1.69MB.
These contained e-mail addresses and texts (dated recently) mixed in with other data(?) of letters and numbers.
In C:\.....Outlook Express\ Mail, there are 11 files with.ibx and .mbx extensions, toalling 106KB of e-mail addresses and texts dating back to July 1999, mixed in as above with other data(?).
When I crippled these files by renaming them, Outlook Express would not work.
After restoring them O.E worked OK.
Can someone please explain? How do I delete these lost items?
