I have been sending email messages in the New year 2003 but they are not recorded in my sent items folder even though the "save copy of sent messages in the sent items folder " box is ticked. Using Outlook Express 5
Any help much appreciated

Your sent items.dbx file might be damaged.

1. From the Start menu, click Find, and choose Files or Folders.
2. In the Named field, type *.dbx.
3. Click the down arrow on the Look in drop-down list and choose (C:).
4. Check the box next to Include subfolders.
5. Click the Find Now button.
6. Select Sent Items.dbx in the Name list.
7. From the File menu, choose Rename.
8. In the field, type Sent Items.old.
9. Close the Find window.

Restart OE and a new sent items .dbx file will be created.

Welcome to the forum dougwal. :-)

It would be a good idea to NOT post your email address here (or on other forums for that matter) due to the internet's "spam bots" that trawl around websites looking for email addresses to harvest for the spammers to send junk mail to.
