Someone has apparently sent me a large photo which has hung up and now prevents me from opening my in box (outlook express).
I'm supposed to do a find for Inbox dbx (whatever that means), right click it and delete it because I'm supposed to delete the entire inbox. Problem is I don't know how to find this inbox.
Has this happened to anyone and if so could you please guide me here...please?

Don't Know But...
Cute cat, and cute name.
Deleting a whole inbox sounds dangerous, but what do I know? Good luck.

why not call your Internet Service Provider and have them delete the large email off the server for you? I had to do that several times when I was on dial up..../

Go to www.mail2web.com and delete
My suggestion.. would be to go to www.mail2web.com and either view and/or delete the message from there..Messages that are large/or pics.. can be viewed and deleted very easilly from there. This is an email server anyone can use, from anywhere, with any email addy and password to view their email
This will enable you to get back to your outlook express.. I suggest after doing this.. reboot the computer.. so the message doesn't keep trying to connect thru outlook express.

A friend of mine did a search for his inbox dbx and it came up - with me it says I don't have one. I mentioned this to a technician and he said I probably needed to reinstall Windows. Tried to do that but it won't let me said that I already have a better one installed so we're thinking that my son at some time downloaded an upgrade to Windows XP from the internet. Can't get a hold of him (he's probably avoiding me, lol).
Anyways, thank you for responding.

I suggest you call your internet/email provider and have them reset your password, you should have no problem doing this. That is the only suggestion I have.
If your not sure what OS (Operating System) you have, Win95, 98, ME, 2000 or XP, a way to find out is right click on my computer, then select properties, a box will pop up and there it will tell you all the info on our system, including what OS you have installed.
I really have no other solutions but I have some geek friends and I will see if they have a different suggestion beside what I did. I think it will work if you just get your password reset and go to the website I told you about and delete that particular email.
