Assistance please.

Using OE on Windows XP.

I have received an email which is causing problems.

Every time I click on it, OE hangs on time clock.
I cannot open or delete the email.

If I close OE and re-open it, I am able to use as normal as long as I don't go near that email.

Any suggestions as to what the problem is.
More importantly, how can I get rid of the offending email.

Thanks

Dave

SORTED

Not sure what problem was but I managed to get rid of offending email by deleting inbox.dbx file

I'd still be interested in what caused problem.

Try this:

Start>programs>outlook express>tools>options> Then select security tab and check to see if "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus" is checked with a green check.

If the green checkmark is present then this email in question may be infected; especially if all else is proper in your Outlook Express.

Good luck,

Thanks ranger72.

That is certainly how I've always had my settings set but this was a first where I was unable to even delete the mail.
All's well that ends well. As stated prev, I got rid of it eventually.

Cheers for your interest.

Dave
