    People,

    I have Win2K and Office2K installed on my machine. I dial up into some other server to access my e-mail.

    Now I have some draft e-mail in the draft folder which I can't delete/move/forward/send all these e-mail sitting there.

    How do I go about getting rid of these set of e-mails.

    Hi odau

    Move those messages in your Drafts folder that you are able to move and want to keep to another folder, then close Outlook Express.
    Does Copy work?

    Do a Search for .dbx
    locate the Drafts.dbx file and rename it Drafts.dbx.old or Delete it.

    Open Outlook Express and it will recreate your Drafts folder.

    Let us know if that works or not.

    EAFiedlier,

    I also tried doing the COPY but this also does not work.

    But I will try and locate the .dbx file and do as you say. Will get back to you ASAP to update yous on this.
