Greetings, gyra !

Are you deleting the Inbox.dbx file?  Other data files may be corrupted.

Backup all your emails.  Look for the all Inbox files in the Outlook Express data folder.  Now test.

If no joy, then delete all the files in the Outlook Express data folder. Now test.

Best wishes!

gyra,

You are using IMAP?  You did not mention this info before. When you delete an email in IMAP from Outlook Express, a line is drawn through it.  To delete forever all lined out emails, you go to Edit on top menu and select Purge Deleted Messages. Then the emails are deleted forever from Outlook Express and the server.

I'm not trying to delete forever, outlook says the file is deleted. In order to retreive the file, i have to go into the (in this case) Inbox > properties > Local File > remove Messages. Then i click on to another folder, then back to the inbox, and all my messages appear and i can read them. This has become VERY annoying with this whole thing. Thanx all!

gyra,

Thanks for the clarification. There is a corrupt file in Outlook Express or in the profile.
1. Register an important Outlook file. Go to Start > Run and type regsvr32 OLE32.DLL

2. Create a new Outlook Express identity.

3. Repair or Reinstall Outlook Express.
