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

Why spend so long doing email signature updates?

Do you spend loads of your time carrying out email signature updates? Not very interesting are they? Don’t let signature updates get you down. Let Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365 make managing email signatures a breeze.

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.
