I cannot delete the message headers in outlook 2003.  The mail messages that they are from no longer exist on the server, because they were downloaded by another user on a different machine (the primary account user).  I have marked them for deletion and it won't let me move or delete them.  They all are hashed out with lines running straight through them.  Please help!!!

Hey Christopher, when there are lines through them, it means the message is expired. When you say you can't delete the headers, do you mean you cannot remove the item from the inbox? Where are these "headers"?

Karen,
Let me give you some bkground. I have the need to send messages from a corporate email acct. I have that acct set up only to send. On occation I need to retrive some emails sent to that acct. Not wanting to download all the new messages I choose to 'Download Inbox Headers' only. I then marked the 2 messages I needed and downloaded them. The other user that manages that acct at some point later downloaded the remaining messages that I had only downloaded Headers for. I am left in my Inbox the listing of message headers that no longer are on the server. I am able to mark them as deleted but they remain in the Inbox greyed out with horizontal lines through them. I can't drag them to the Deleted Items folderand they are not removed after restarting the program. The program seems to be waiting for me to finish downloading them. Do you know how I can remove them.
Thanks

Karen,
After marking the Headers for deletion I first choose the option 'Process Marked Headers'. This did not work. I tried it several time with no result. Just after sending my last response to you I tried it again and it worked. I don't know what the delay was. Thank you for your quick responses.

I am having the same problem, but it's not going away. I have tried "process marked headers" at least 20 times, and the greyed-out "deleted" headers still remain in my inbox with a strike-through line. But they don't delete.
Does anyone out there have a solution, please?
