Using Outlook express version 6 Windows XP

When sending the email is

a. not being copied to the sent box and remains in the Outbox
b. this means the email is being sent several times until I delete it or copy it to another directory
c. I have checked the settings and emails are set to 'copy to sent box' when they have been sent
d. I have checked the time settings and these are correct
e. Outlook reports an error on sending but does not give further details of the nature of the error

The sent box does have 25000 items in it so I transferred them to another directory but Outlook won't let me delete the emails which have remained in the sent box

Can anyone advise on how the emails can only be sent once and transferred from the outbox to sent box? Also how to delete the emails that are in the sent box?

Did you use the copy to your new folder or move to your new folder.
If you used copy to-delete the messages in the new folder and try the 'move to' command.
Also use the compress messages to save space command.
There is a limit on the size of folders in outlook express.
This may help.


Or google some more ideas on 'size of folders in outlook express'.
