This is usually caused by the Folders.dbx file being missing, damaged, or using the read-only attribute

Click Start | Find, and then click Files or Folders.
In the Named box, type folders.dbx
In the Look In box, click your main hard disk (usually drive C), and then click Find Now
Right-click the Folders.dbx file, and then click Rename
Type folders.old, and then click OK.
Start Outlook Express. This creates a new Folders.dbx file automatically.
