Can't Delete emails. (When Inbox Repair Tool doesn't work.)
Posted on 2005-04-29
OS: Windows 2K Server
App: MS Outlook 2000
Outlook 2000 stopped letting me delete emails, in any folder (Inbox, Sent, Deleted, etc). When I highlight an email and click delete, I get the following error:
"Errors have been detected in the file F:\thomas_pab\OUTLOOK BACKUP\outlook_mail.pst. Quit all mail-enabled applications, and then use the Inbox Repair Tool."
So I shut down Outlook and use the inbox repair tool on the file in question, and the first time, it said it "repaired" the files and all was well. But it still didn't allow emails to be deleted. So I rebooted, and tried again, this time Inbox Repair Tool said there were no errors with the file. Outlook opens, sends and receives perfectly fine. It just won't allow me to delete.
