Tell more.

There are dozens of email clients and then a dozen web browsers that I can get email with. It would be hard to make it go away with only this little detail.

Tell more please.

Bob asked what e-mail program you used. You didn't tell. It could be Firefox 1.1 you use to open your gmail account or a 1998 version of Incredimail running on your old Windows 95 PC.

Does it happen if you open the inbox, or if you open the program? That's a difference, you see. I can set Outlook Express (still another email program) to go to the inbox if I open the program, but that's not necessary.

So let's try to find the problem:
Open the program. It gives that message.
Now make a new box and move all mails from the inbox to it. Inbox is empty now.
Go to that new box. What happens?
Go to the inbox. What happens?
Compress the inbox (if that's an option in your program). What happens?
Go to that new box and back to the inbox. What happens?
Go out of the program and back again into the inbox. What happens?
Send yourself an e-mail. And read it. One mail now in your inbox.
Go out of the program and back again into the inbox. What happens?

When you report the outcome of this simple experiment don't forget to tell the name and version of your e-mail program and your operating system (like Windows XP SP2 or Ubuntu 11.10).

Out of Memory at line

I just hope you've found this post before you've spent your money on "cleaning" programs to fix this it will not work.
YOU ARE NOT OUT OF MEMORY BUT IF YOUR COMPUTER IS USING OVER 640 MB OF RAM FOR EACH PAGE FILE YOU WILL HAVE A VIRTUAL MEMORY PROBLEM.
1. Start bar- control panel
2. System and security (control pannel might take you their automaticly)
3. System
4. Advanced System Settings
5. Click on the settings for performance
6. Click on the advanced tab
7. See your virtual memory? Is your paging file size bigger than 640MB? If it is, change it to 640MB.
8. Restart computer
note- this may take a couple days to a week for your system to restore but once it does, you will never see out of memory at line: 1, 2, 14,56, etc. etc. again Happy
If you are impatient, download mozilla firefox (free) and use that.
Facebook was still giving me problems after I fixed my RAM, but not as bad, so you might want to stay off it for awhile. I use it everyday now.
Delete cookies and cache to make your internet run faster. Download internet explorer 9 (also free)

I recommend not using facebook for this time, it was giving me problems but not nearly as bad. The message is gone now and I am able to use facebook.
Also delete cookies and cache for faster internet, and download Internet Explorer 9.
