I tried both the Accepted Answer and the Assisted Anser with no luck. I can recieve and send email and look at all folders with the exception of the base "Inbox" folder.
I really didn't understand the Accepted Answer. When I click on Properties for the Inbox - I see no address field, nor do I see any line with Inbox.dbx in it. I searched for Inbox.dbx on my hard drive but nothing was found.
I was hesitant to receive email because of the problem, but I did anyway (so I could verify my email address and use this service!) and the new emails came into Inbox, and for a short time I could actuall see the Inbox items - but anytime I tried to take any action on them - read, delete, move - I got an Outlook error and Outlook restarted. Now I'm back to the "Unable to display the folder" screen when I click on Inbox. What do I do next? This is Outlook 2003.
