There can be many issues related to the Outlook Express program. Some of the most common ones and their possible fixes are discussed below in this article.
The slow performance of the Outlook program can be very much annoying. The application may take a long time to load and this can be especially annoying if you need to do something urgent in the program. This issue can happen when the Outlook program and the Microsoft messenger program are running at the same time.
As this problem is a simple one, the solution is also simple. You just need to go to the Tools menu and then find the Options sub-menu. Check and verify if the option to automatically sign into the Windows Messenger program is selected. If it is selected, you will need to uncheck the option and then see if the performance of the Outlook program has changed.
Not Receiving Email Messages
The first thing that you need to do is to verify if you are able to send email messages, but unable to get them. If this is the case, your domain should be full and you must be running out of storage space. This means that you must be having many email messages, stored in your sent items, inbox or any other folders.
The best possible solution to this issue is to delete the unwanted email messages to increase the available space. After freeing up the space, you will start to receive the email messages again.
This is a much common one among all the Outlook errors. This error disables you from opening email messages and the error is usually caused by the presence of corrupt .dbx files. These files are necessary for the proper functioning of the Outlook program.
To solve the error, you will need to go to Tools, select Accounts, select Mail tab and then check Duplicate Mail Account. As the last step, you will need to choose the Remove option. You should continue these steps until all the duplicate email messages are deleted. If this step does not fix the issue, you can make use of the Search application and then look for the Outbox.dbx file. After locating the file, you will need to rename it.
