Hi,

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

Error Message Using Some Rules in Outlook Express

OLEXP: You Receive an Error Message or Are Unable to Start Outlook Express (Q245419)


Good luck,
