Outlook Express compacting

  Creditman 10:44 04 Aug 05

Sometimes when I exit O.E (v.6), a window pops up headed "compacting" & all of my O.E folders are flashed through & compressed. Why does it do this only occasionally & should I be concerned ?

Normally it's done manually (File>Folder>Compact) - it just compresses the files to take up less space.

See Tools > Options > Maintenance Tab, there you'll find "Compact messages in background". If this is ticked, OE6 will do of own accord, otherwise you need to manually as above.
