I have a corrupted inbox.dbx, have tried running the "inbox repair tool" from the accessories/system tools area with no luck. It seems it is more pointed to "Outlook" and not "Outlook Express"

Does anyone know of any good inbox repair tools for "Outlook Express 5.5"

Regards

Ok, OK, OK...I hate it when I get them confused:

here it is again:

OutLook Express 4 and below:

search for <mailboxname>.mbx-rename to <mailboxname>.old

reopen outlook express 4

outlook express 5 and above:

search for <mailboxname>.dbx -rename to <mailboxname>.old

restart outlook express.

Cheers.
