    Move any messages you want to save from SENT to another folder (make a new TEMP folder)
    Locate the folder SENT.DBX on your hard drive
    delete it
    Outlook Express will create a new empty folder the next time you start the program.
    Move the salvaged messages from TEMP to the new SENT folder
