    From what I've been able to find about this problem, try this:

    Turn off background compaction under Tools\Options\Maintenance, and
    then compact manually via File\Folder\Compact all.

    Background compaction has been implicated in corrupting the message store, so its a good idea to leave it off.

    Also take a look at the following articles:

    Error Message If the Folders.dbx File Is Missing or Damaged

    Good luck,
