How can we get rid of the Outlook Express message: To free up disk space, Outlook Express can compact messages.  This may take up to a few minutes.?

We have recently converted from GroupWise to Exchange and Outlook.  Now users who used to open messages with Outlook Express before we had Outlook get this message regularly.  We would like ot get rid of it.  Is that possible?

Could just remove outlook express entirely since you have outlook now.  Just open up add/remove programs, on the left select windows components, take the checkmark out of outlook express and continue.

The message appears due to the size of the outlook express mail folder.  I would just clear it out if you already have everything exported to exchange.
