I'm new and pretty thick, so any information in very simple English would be a help! I've got Outlook Express and XP. It gets incredibly slow to open emails and even folders. I've got quite a few messages, and need most of them, but haven't got the time to sort out which ones i can bin. I did search through different posts and tried the microsoft guide, got a bit of info that I can understand, but not much. I have tried to compact them, but I get an error message saying 'folder in use by other application' which I can't work out. I would like to save the messages onto a CD, but a) I don't know how (I know how to save individual, but not the whole lot) and b) If the folders are currupted, should I try to uncurrupt (don't think that's a proper word!) them before saving? And how, if so?
I hope this made sense. Thank you very much for your time.
