Outlook Express 6 shows the file to have data but I cannot see any emails in it

  1. So,

    Someone I know still uses Outlook Express 6 and recently maxed out the inbox size at 2GB and was not able to receive any more messages (0x800c0133 error). That is when I got the call. I followed these instructions on how to correct the issue. Which did the trick.

    However before I began the work the inbox did not show to have any emails in it (hidden or not) even though the inbox.dbx file was full 2GB. Now after the work, the old_inbox folder (as I called it) is still 2GB in size but shows no messages. How to I get the messages back or extract them somehow?

    Thanks

    Aha, ďalší Slovák! Presne preto tam mam vlajku.

    The second link look promising. I will give it a shot and report back.

    Vďaka (Thanks)
