Can't delete messages from Outlook Express

I just had a couple of messages come in and I can't delete them from Outlook Express. I can delete others that came in at another time. Any ideas????

Can't delete messages in Outlook Exp

When I try by clicking on the delete symbol (X) nothing happens. When I try other means of deleting with the cursor I get a message saying that this message cannot be deleted. I can delete the message by applying "shift" and "delete" keys at the same time but then I lose the massage permanently as it does not go into the delete file. This situation just started a day or so ago.
