quickymart:

 

. All went well until (I guess) the .dbx file became too big for Outlook Express 6 to read,then I started having these problems. I suspect the Inbox.dbx file is corrupted and I need some app to fix it so I can migrate it to my new machine - cloud storage is a good idea too. I recall discussing this in another thread on here...will have a search for it.

 

 

As the OE dbx approaches the 2Gb limit, it definitely becomes corrupt. It can be a painfull process to recover from and you WILL loose some email
There are ways to do it manually, but try one of the paid OE recovery tools if you want to save alot of grief & stress .
The free/demo versions usually only let you do a test recovery of a few emails to show just what can be recovered from with the paid version

I got the e-mail sorted in the end using OE Mail Recovery Setup and safely migrated all my mail to Windows Live Mail 2012. Yes, it's no longer supported, but the Windows 10 Mail app was horrible.
