I am having problems with OutLook Express 6.
Yesterday after I checked for mail I opened the sent items folder. I proceeded to delete old e-mails.
After deleting about 20 or so the delete function froze. I could no longer delete. I clicked on the delete tab several times and the cursor arrow turned into an hour glass.
I tried to close the application, but I could not. The best I could do was minimize to the lower tray.
When I returned to the web site I was on before checking my mail things slowed to a crawl.
I logged off the Internet but the "sent items" was still in my bottom tray. The only way I was able to get rid of it was to re-start my computer.
I went through this scenario 4 or 5 times. I let it rest, however the same thing is happening today.
A window popped up and said the program is not responding. (while in OutLook) I clicked the option to return to windows, but all that did is bring me back to the screen I see before logging onto the Internet.
The only difference I am still logged on and the "sent items" along with as in this case "bleeping computer" are in the bottom tray.
I hope I am making some sort of sense. If I can make things more clear please ask and I will get right on it.
( Windows XP Home, SP2, IE 7)
Thank You for your time.
EDIT: Update. I just clicked on the "Sent Items" tab in my bottom tray and it is now operating normally. I am able to delete old e-mails. I am confused.
