It may be that the inbox file is too large,rather than a single large Email (most ISPs and servers have a limit to its size). You can simply delete this file from your hard drive, and OE will create it when you launch it again. You will lose all Email held in your inbox, so be sure you have nothing important there, but recreating this file should allow you to work with your Emails.
MS likes to make finding these files rather hard, so here is the path:
Windows/Identities/ (a bunch of alphanumeric gibberish)/Microsoft/Outlook Express/inbox.dbx
Please also remember than many zipped files often contain viruses, so be very certain you know who is sending them, when they are sent, and what they contain!
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
