After restarting my computer outlook will work fine the first time it is opened. However, if it is closed and reopened it will no longer allow us to delete mail. I found a post that suggested deleting the inbox.dbx file and I did so. It worked for a while and now it is not allowing me to delete mail again. I have deleted or moved all mail in the inbox folder to other folders and emptied the deleted items folder. Any Ideas??????

Back up any mail you currently have in Outlook. Also back up your address books.
Uninstall Outlook, reboot, then reinstall.
Sometimes this simple procedure will work to resolve issues.
