You probably have a corrupted Deleted Items folder. Go to
Tools-Options-Maintenanve and click on Store Folder. Select the link in the
box and click on "Copy".
Close OE.

Open Windows Explorer and in the address bar, click paste and you should be
directed to your store folder. Delete the file called "Deleted Items.dbx".
Re-open OE. The file will be rebuilt.
See if that helps
