I keep getting the message that Outlook Express can compact my files.  I say ok to compact them, but right after that I get the message saying it can compact my files again.  I have allowed compaction several times, but the message keeps reappearing.

How do I stop getting this message?  For example, is there a way to allocate more disk space to Outlook Express files?
