Deleting mail from an Outlook Express folder can leave 'holes' in the file which aren't filled up. The trick: in OE choose File>Folder>Compact to 'compact' the current folder, or File>Folder>Compact all Folders to compact, indeed, all folders.
It's rather fast, and it doesn't harm to do it either regularly or after you deleted a lot of mails from a folder.
Hope this helps,
Simple question - I hope!
(I have tried searching prev posts but failed!)
I was at the dentists and read a PC mag about cleaning your HD. Now one thing it said was that when you deleted mail from outlook express it was wiped from your disc (ie could not be reread) - however there was some mechanism that this "space" on the HD could not be written over again - ie it was effectively lost, unless you did "something". I have no idea what that "something" was!
Is this an actual problem with a solution? Or did I misunderstand it with my limited know-how? Your advice would be once again appreciated,
Thanks in advance
