1. Your AV+firewall may be responsible for this behaviour. Disable your AV+firewall sw & try again. If not go to next step...

2. You may have a corrupted inbox.dbx file.
Follow the instructions here - click here. The instructions are for WinXP I think. For Win98se, the files to copy to c:\data (in step 2. of above link) may be in C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Identities\{Your_Identity_String}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\. If not, do a search for a 'Outlook Express' folder in C:\Windows. Good luck, G

PS - Let us know if the above works & I'll give you some preventive measures to reduce the chance of it happening again.
