Can you move all the other mail that you want to keep to another folder?
Are you having problems deleting anything else?

Move everything you want to keep to another folder.
With the Inbox open, Click File>Work-offline.
When it's done compacting, click File>Work-offline to remove the checkmark.
See if the E-mail can be deleted.
If it won't delete, you'll need to go into the Message Store folder.
You need to have Hidden files and Folders showing.
At the top of any folder(My Documents for example) click Tools>Folder Options>View tab.
Scroll down the list and place a check next to "Show Hidden Files and Folders" then click Apply and OK.
Click on Tools>Options>Maintenance tab>Store Folder.
On the Store Location box, highlight the address by pressing the Tab key on your keyboard.
Press Control+C (both at the same time) to copy the address to the clipboard.
Click Cancel on all boxes and close OE.
Click on Start>Run.
Press Control+V (both at the same time) to paste the address into the command line and click OK.
The Store Folder containing all the DBX files should open.
Find the file Inbox.dbx and delete it.
When you next open OE, a new empty Inbox will be created.
Let me know if one of those works for you.
