Outlook Express 5 inbox corrupted
Posted on 2000-05-02
I recently received a message from OE5 that my sent items folder may have been damaged. OE5 created a new "sent items 1" folder. The original sent items folder still exists on my hard drive.
I tried moving the sent items 1 out of my mail directory and moving the original sent items folder in it's place. That didn't work. It created a new sent items 1 folder which was blank.
I then moved the original sent items folder to another directory and tried to import, received the standard "no files or in use by another application.
Then I created a new identity and tried importing. Same result
Same has now aoocured to my inbox folder.
Is there any utility out there that can repair a corrupted folder and then be able to import into my existing folders?
How about upgrading to a full edition program like Outlook and importing from OE5?
Any assistance would be nice as I would like to retrieve my old email files
