I've been using Vista for several years now. After recently reinstalling the Vista OS and Office 2000, every time I open my Outlook Express I see a Recovered Items folder. I can delete the folder(s) but each time I reopen OE 2000 the Recovered Items folder returns.


This never happened in the past. How can I get of it once and for all?

Moved from vista to 'Business applications'

Are you deleting them from the Deleted Items folder? When you delete them, go to that folder, right click it, and select Empty Deleted Items folder. After you've done that, go to Tools>Options>Maintenance and compact the Deleted Items folder.


Which email provider are you using? It's possible the emails aren't being deleted on that email server and that's why they keep coming back as recovered items. You may want to check with your email service provider about that.
