Computer running XP and emails read in Outlook Express;
but compacted email are in recycle bin
Computer requested I compact the emails which I have done at least twice
However, on checking the recycle bin I note that there are items in there from the OE
I have been checking my recycle bin and have done a' compact 'of the OE but it seems that the compacting sends things to the recycle bin?
What should happen if the computer asks for the OE to be compacted? where does it send the compact?
I am having to go through the recycle bin line by line to see what I can safely completely delete but also when I try to restore an item it seems to make a duplicate in the recycle bin !!
I can still read the emails in OE but where should the compacted emails actually be saved? And how if at all can I get this corrected?
How if at all can this be corrected or resolved please?
