    1. What is your / Tools / Options / Maintenance setting
    for Store Folder ?
    2. Compare dates of your three DBX files. If you find
    they have different dates you can probably delete the
    two older ones.

    That would indicate that you have three different Identities, unless one
    or more of the folders are relics from past installations, backups, or
    whatever. Each Identity folder has an "Outlook Express" sub-folder
    containing the DBX files that pertain to that Identity. (This assumes
    you haven't moved the storage folder.)

    Personally, I'd leave them alone, unless you are concerned about
    privacy. They aren't hurting anything. In Outlook Express>File
    menu>Identities>Manage Identities, how many do you show?

    Just one. shows in Manage Identities. I have problems sending mail I get an
    error message many times, and have to go to outbox and click send now. I get
    the following message "An unknown error has occurred. Protocol: SMTP, Port:

    You appear to have a damaged FOLDERS.DBX file.

    Close Outlook Express

    Click Start, highlight the Find option,
    then select Files or Folders.
    Or hold down a Windows key and press the F key

    In the Named box, type FOLDERS.DBX

    In the Look In box, choose the hard disk
    on which FOLDERS.DBX resides
    [this is usually drive C]
    and then click Find Now.

    Right-click the FOLDERS.DBX file and choose RENAME.

    Type FOLDERS.OLD , and click OK.

    Start Outlook Express again.

    A new FOLDERS.DBX file will be generated.
    Probably a MUCH smaller one, which is good.

    When you are satisfied, you can delete FOLDERS.OLD

    Thank you very much. Now after I do it how can I get back all the messages
    from the .old files?

    I renamed the three Sent Items.dbx files to Sent Items.old and it solved the
    error problem but my question is if I want to retrieve some of the messages
    in the renamed files how do I do it?

    ...by similarly swapping that Sent Items.dbx file with the main one in your
    current folder, then right-click choose to move the that message to your
    Drafts folder, and after you put the wanted Sent Items.dbx file back just
    move those messages from Draft back to Sent.. just be sure to keep your
    original Sent Items.dbx file backup'd safely!

    Here's one thing to try:

    Move the SENT.OLD file to a different folder (Desktop, whatever,
    anywhere will do.) Rename it back to SENT.DBX

    Use File>Import>Messages to import the messages from that SENT.DBX file.
    You're importing from a Message Store, not an Identity, and you'll
    navigate to that lone SENT.DBX file. Import it into a different folder
    than default, one that you've created previously, named something like
    "Sent_Archive".

    For further hints, plus tools you can use to extract the messages into
    TXT files directly from the DBX file, see www.insideoe.com and
    http://www.oehelp.com

    He must of fallen into an earthquake, Solkeys, & his Poodles have not
    yet tugged him out by a toe. I'm sure the question is asking what
    program created the .dbx, & that would be IE6, judging by your
    Properties...

    I can find nothing about that error message at the MSKB or in OE Help.
    Did you scour those URLs Terhune posted or the NGs Bear did? HOWEVER, I
    do see that message will show up when I point OE to a folder that has no
    ..dbx file. So...

    "START, Programs, MS-DOS Prompt"
    DIR /a /on Full\Path\To\That\Folder

    Like...
    C:\>DIR /a /on "G:\Outlook Express Store"
    Directory of G:\Outlook Express Store
    DELETE~1 DBX 256,724 08-10-05 7:36p Deleted Items.dbx
    DRAFTS DBX 139,376 07-26-05 7:31a Drafts.dbx
    FOLDERS DBX 399,012 08-10-05 5:29p Folders.dbx
    INBOX DBX 191,188 08-10-05 7:36p Inbox.dbx
    ....snip
    20 file(s) 188,106,208 bytes

    Of course, that one does have them.

    I was wondering maybe the problem is when I am asked Import From I chose
    Import mail from a OE6 store directory. Is it possible that I don't have it
    now in a store directory,and what means a store directory?

    Well, by trial & error, I discover you need a Folders.dbx in the folder
    too. I moved Keepers.dbx into C:\Windows\Temp, & it wouldn't import,
    until I also moved it's Folders.dbx into there too. Then, it worked
    fine.

    You can't Import it, until you...

    (a) Put it into a folder
    (b) Rename it back to "Sent Items.dbx"
    (c) Put it's original Folders.dbx into the same folder.

    ....as far as I know. Otherwise, go scour that site or the other NGs.
    Perhaps you can fudge a Folders.dbx. I just don't know.

    For solkeys...

    Q: How do I import Sent Items.dbx?
    A: See http://www.insideoe.com/faqs/how.htm#importdbx or last paragraph of
    http://www.oehelp.com/backup.aspx.

    NB: Rename 'Sent Items.dbx' to [Anyothername].dbx. If by some miracle you
    manage to import Sent Items.dbx into your current OE store, it will
    overwrite the current Sent Items folder!

    Q: I imported it but there weren't any messages?
    A: It was prolly corrupted a long time ago.

    Why it happens:

    http://insideoe.tomsterdam.com/problems/bugs.htm#mailgone
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/IE/community/columns/filecorruption.mspx

    Recovering data: http://www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#4
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    DBXtract
    http://www.oehelp.com/DBXtract/Default.aspx

    DBXtend (additional functionality)
    http://www.oehelp.com/DBXtend/Default.aspx

    DBXpress (faster, more powerful, with even greater functionality)
    http://www.oehelp.com/DBXpress/Default.aspx

    OEX (OE Enhancement Program)
    http://www.oehelp.com/OEX/Default.aspx
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    To avoid such corruption in future:

    - Don't use Inbox or *Sent Items* to archive messages. Move the messages to
    Local folders created for this purpose.

    - Empty Deleted Items folder daily.

    - Disable Background Compacting [N/A in SP2] and frequently perform a manual
    compact of all OE folders while "working offline". More at
    http://insideoe.tomsterdam.com/files/maintain.htm.

    - Your anti-virus application's email scanning feature can also cause such
    corruption. Disable it. It provides no additional protection.

    ANYWAY, I see there is a way to do it in your post to Solkeys. That
    should do it, then! Apparently Terhune put on a few pounds since his
    Poodles tugged him out the last earthquake-- BUT we got the job done! A
    job well done!

    What are you using for a Folders.dbx...?...

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;233264
    OLEXP: Error Message If the Folders.dbx File Is Missing or Damaged
    .......Quote..............
    SYMPTOMS
    When you start Outlook Express or attempt to send an e-mail message, you
    may receive one of the following error messages:
    MSIMN caused an invalid page fault in module Msoe.dll
    MSIMN caused an invalid page fault in module "unknown"
    MSIMN caused an invalid page fault in module Directdb.dll
    Msimn caused an exception C0000006h in module Directdb.dll
    Outlook Express: The message could not be sent. There is not enough Disk
    space.
    Unknown error has occurred. Protocol: SMTP Port: 0 Secure: No [SSL]
    Error: 0x800c0131

    CAUSE
    This behavior can occur if the Folders.dbx file is missing, damaged, or
    using the read-only attribute.

    RESOLUTION
    Rename the Folders.dbx file: 1. Click Start, point to Find, and then
    click Files or Folders.
    2. In the Named box, type folders.dbx.
    3. In the Look In box, click your primary hard disk (usually drive C),
    and then click Find Now.
    4. Right-click the Folders.dbx file, and then click Rename.
    5. Type folders.old, and then click OK.
    6. Start Outlook Express. This creates a new Folders.dbx file
    automatically.

    SOLKEYS, you should have been CURED by now by following my, Terhune's,
    Bear's, or Chauvin's instructions! Maybe even Phillipson's or Candlin's!
    Who said to create a new identity?

    (1) Are you able to read Sent Items in the new identity?
    (2) Are you able to read them in the old identity?
    (3) How did you get them into the new identity?
    (4) Are you saying you cannot import them from one to the other?
    (5) What precisely are you clicking?

    Careful about one thing: seems Bear is saying...

    "NB: Rename 'Sent Items.dbx' to [Anyothername].dbx. If by some miracle
    you
    manage to import Sent Items.dbx into your current OE store, it will
    overwrite the current Sent Items folder!"

    First I renamed the Sent Items to .old, then I created a new folder called
    Sent Archives, and also created a new Identity and made there also a folders
    called Sent Archives. Then I renamed the Sent Items folders to Sent Archives
    and went to Windows Explorer and moved they renamed folder to my default
    Identity. Then I went to my new Identity and started to import mail from the
    Sent Archives in the default Intensity. to the new identity. I was able to
    import about half of the mail did I got the error message.

    Sounds like the DBX file is corrupt. Trying to import that set of messages
    is probably doomed. You want to resort to one or another of the
    already-mentioned recovery utilities. DBXtract, for instance. Won't get them
    back into OE, but it will certainly create a decently accessible and
    searchable folder full of EML or TXT email files.

    I haven't tried creating new identities. So, really, I don't know how
    that goes. It could be as Terhune & Bear suggest, that the old "Sent
    Items.dbx" you wish to Import is corrupt, if the Sent Items began to
    Import but quit half way. BUT you have done so much folder renaming &
    identity creating that something else may be the matter.

    (1) Can you undo what you did, delete that new identity & all the new
    folders you created? BUT make sure you still have that old "Sent
    Items.dbx" you wish to import in a folder of it's own-- a folder OUTSIDE
    of the OE Store-- even put it in C:\Windows\Temp.

    (2) Does OE still work now & look like it did before?

    If so, try this, from one of the sites Bear posted, last paragraph of
    ....
    http://www.oehelp.com/backup.aspx.

    example) and access it once. Then close OE and find archiv1.dbx and
    delete it. Make a copy of the folder you want to restore and rename it
    to archiv1.dbx. Then copy that file into the directory where the
    previous file was deleted. Open OE and the messages you wanted to
    restore will be accessible via opening that archiv1 folder.
    .......EOQ.............

    That is...

    (1) Rename the old "Sent Items.dbx" to "Old Sent Items.dbx".
    This should be somewhere outside the OE Store.
    That is, it won't show up in OE's left pane yet.
    It is the file you are trying to Import.

    (2) Create a new folder in OE, & access it once...

    (a) R-Clk "Local Folders" in OE's L-Pane, & select "New Folder".
    (b) Paste the name "Old Sent Items.dbx" (no quotes) into it.
    (c) It will quickly appear in the L-Pane.
    Click it. It will show up empty in OE's R-Pane.
    This is the destination of the file in step (1).

    (3)
    (a) Close OE, and open Explorer to your OE Store. It's location shows
    at...
    "OE, Tools menu, Options, Maintenance tab, Store Folder button"
    (b) Delete the file in there named: "Old Sent Items.dbx".
    That is the one you just created.
    (c) Still using Explorer, copy the "Old Sent Items.dbx" of step (1)
    into this OE Store folder.

    (4) Close Explorer. Open OE. Maybe do a "File menu, Folder, Compact all
    folders".

    You should now have what you want in there. Hopefully, it is not
    corrupt.

    Another approach to "washing" mail is to do a round-robin import
    through different email apps, e.g. import into Eudora, then import
    Eudora's data back into OE (or just stay in Eudora).

    The import process is tortuous and prone to introducing problems, but
    what you're hoping here is that a problem that blows up OE (possibly
    deliberately, i.e. an exploit) will be defused along the way. Quite
    likely, as the cross-import is likely to redefine any broken
    structures and thus "clean them up".

    There's another advantage to importing into Eudora, and that is that
    Eudora will strip out attachments as loose files that can be scanned
    by av. Importing back into OE hides them in OE's mailboxes again, but
    hopefully you'd have scanned them when you had the chance. An
    on-access av will do that as Eudora creates them as files.

    OK, then! Should he have been able to Import from one identity to
    another? It isn't mentioned in OE Help. I think I like the other trick
    better, though, anyhow, of creating an empty folder in OE & replacing
    it's .dbx with the full one.

    If it's corrupted, it's corrupted. Best chance would be to extract any
    messages possible using, e.g., DBXtract or $imilar. Recovered messages, if
    any, may be dragged to an open OE folder.

    Repeat:

    To avoid such corruption in future, don't use Inbox or **Sent Items** to
    archive messages. Move them to user-created local folders created for this
    purpose. Disable Background Compacting [N/A in SP2] and frequently perform
    a manual compact of all OE folders while "working offline". More at
    http://www.insideoe.com/files/maintain.htm. Your anti-virus application's
    email scanning feature can also cause corruption. Disable it. It provides
    no additional protection.

    I see. But it's hard to tell whether it is corrupted or something went
    wrong with how he did it. There are too many Sent Items, Sent Archives &
    Identities in his description...

    ......Quote.............
    First I renamed the Sent Items to .old, then I created a new folder
    called
    Sent Archives, and also created a new Identity and made there also a
    folders
    called Sent Archives. Then I renamed the Sent Items folders to Sent
    Archives
    and went to Windows Explorer and moved they renamed folder to my default
    Identity. Then I went to my new Identity and started to import mail from
    the
    Sent Archives in the default Intensity. to the new identity. I was able
    to
    import about half of the mail did I got the error message.

    But, don't worry! I have spelled out the other procedure!

    The BIG HINT is that the Import proceeded decently until half way through
    the process. That indicates a corrupted DBX file and can't really mean much
    else.

    Thanks. I thought that might be true. Still, so much has been done, let
    us see what that other procedure can do, if he can subtract the identity
    & get back to that. I'm not sure he's using the original Sent Items.dbx,
    either. He has moved so much around!

    Well, good luck keeping up. I read Solkeys' latest and I have to admit, I'm
    lost. All I know is I read the exchange up to the one that reported partial
    success, and it seemed pretty clear to me at that point that the file is
    corrupt, that DBXtract or similar is called for.

    Is the one you import empty? What is it's name? Is there one of the same
    name in the destination Identity? Sounds like what you describe WOULD
    happen, if you are importing an empty folder with a unique name.

    Try the procedure I spelled out, Solkeys!

    Thanks again. Yea, me too, I tried & nearly figured what he was
    describing he did, BUT couldn't quite do it. Therefore, I want him to
    get back to where he was & try the thing Bear posted. He appears to be
    resistant, though, & continues to do Import's. Does look like was able
    to Import an empty .dbx from one Identity to another-- but that isn't
    part of the procedure!

    I named it Sent Archives and it is full but when I try to import it to
    another identity it instead creates another folder in the same identity that
    is empty.
