How can I repair my Outlook Express file? I see an e-mail, but can't open it.

I opened Outlook Express and was able to read messages just fine.  Then I lost power in my house.   With power restored, I turned the computer back on.  In Outlook Express, I can see my e-mail message, but can't open it.  (It says the file has not been downloaded yet, but it really has because I was just looking at it a few minutes ago.)  I think the file that holds the messages is corrupted.  How can I fix it.

Thank you.

Do you have way to access your email via IE. Check if that opens from Web. If so, reconfigure your outlook express again and test the results
