Messages are invisible in the Outlook Express Inbox

Comments: When you do a search for an e-mail message, you find it to be in your Inbox. But when you go directly in to the Inbox, it’s not there.

Cause: This is due to a corrupt inbox.dbx file.

Solution: First, use the search feature and move the files from your Inbox to some other folder (you could create a new folder and put the files in there). After that, locate the folder where OE stores your messages by going to Tools > Options > Maintenance tab > Store Folder. In that folder, delete the inbox.dbx file. (You’ll need to shut down OE before doing this.) Now when you restart OE, a new Inbox folder will have been created.
