Outlook Express wants to compact

  effingpot 12:58 13 Apr 07

In the last few weeks Outlook Express on both my PCs has asked me if I want to compact messages, EVERY time I close the programme. It's like MS has downloaded this feature as part of an update but I don't see anyway to turn it off.

Anyone else getting this? Any ideas?

If you compact your messages you shouldn't be bothered by this for another 100 times of running OE.

Thanks - I let it compact and the message has stopped. Funnily I had actually tried this on several previous occassions just to get a "file in use" error. I got the error today but the compact managed to finish.
Prob solved.

From OE's File>Folder you can choose to Compact an individual folder or All Folders.

This will prevent the notice appearing if you do it regularly.

Any chance of you finding the time to go through it all and deleting some?
