Note: This possible solution was excerpted "in tact" from another location:

Your Inbox is corrupted. Move any mail you wish to save to a local folder
you create. Then:

Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store folder will reveal the location of
your Outlook Express files. Press the Tab key to highlight the folder
location, then Ctrl+C. Close OE, then Start | Run | Ctrl+V will put the
location in the box - Click OK and you'll see the OE files. Otherwise, write
the location down and navigate to it in Windows Explorer.

In Windows XP, 2K & 3K, the OE user files (DBX and WAB) are by default
marked as hidden. To view these files in Windows Explorer, you must enable
Show Hidden Files and Folders under Start | Control Panel | Folder Options |
View.

With OE closed, find the DBX file for the folder in question {Inbox.dbx} and
rename it to Inboxold.dbx. A new Inbox will be created automatically when
you open OE.

Use one of these tools to retrieve the lost mail.

DBXpress: {much faster for large files}

hello tork,

Wow, that solution looks exactly the same as the one I posted but I found it at a different location. For the record, the reason I didn't provide a direct link to the solution was because the actual solution was buried in a very long thread that started out with a subject that had nothing to do with the ultimate solution so I was afraid the poster would have read just the first line and stopped reading. Anyway, good find as yours is much easier to get to via a link than mine would have been.

Here it is:

(I think the actual procedure is about the 7th response in the thread)

Note: The thread starts off recommending a reinstall of windows

Hello again tork,

I hope you find (or already found) the link I provided as useful for your purposes; however, you have peaked my curiosity as to why you wanted to read that specific thread. So, if you don't mind, could you please elaborate on the importance of doing so?

Hi ucanfixit,

Just logged on and got your answer on the link - thanks; I'll be checking it out. To answer your question - I'm curious to read the link as a follow on to this original post - what works for one may or may not work for another as well so I'm curious to read the other thread. The other thing I'm always curious about is how sometimes the first recommended solution "reinstall windows" in this case is an overkill for a simple problem with a simpler solution. So I'm curious
thanks again
tork

Got it; thanks! And your comment about the original poster is typical of all forums I'm afraid because we have to keep "reinventing the wheel" everytime someone just "takes the answer and runs." Even if a suggestion didn't work, it work still be nice to know...
