The folder can hold 2 GB at most. To check the size, go to your Outlook Express store folder & examine the Sent Items.dbx file size.

  •  Ensure you compact folders manually after moving messages.

Rename a Corrupt "Outbox.dbx" File

1. With Outlook Express closed, open your Outlook Express store folder in Windows Explorer & rename the Outbox.dbx file to Outlook.old.
2. Note that you can no longer access any messages in your "old" Outbox folder.
