Email Compression in Outlook Express; No Thank You...

I have the following problem;

I use Windows XP SP2 with all the latest updates installed.
Outlook Express is the thing giving me headaches;
Every 100th time opening Outlook Express it 'asks' me if I want to compress my email and if I choose "no" it just keeps asking(the next time I run OE) untill I choose "yes" and it will happen again after another 100 'openings'.
Not a problem?
Well it is if most of the time XP hangs during compressing and I have to do a reset. (at that point it isn't compressing anymore, the HDD stops and the screen just freezes only the mouse moves but I can't do s jit).

I know there is a registry key (I forgot which one) which I can reset to "0" to let the counting begin again but I just want the function completely removed or disabled.

Can anyone help?
