I set up a folder for Outlook Express mail and keep track of the subfolders. First I noticed when I send music files it stores the file in its Sent folder, so now that file is in two places in the computer. This adds up. When I save a received song, it still stays in Outlook - two places again. Of course you know that text messages are attached to all this. Can't delete the music without deleting text, don't want to. I try fancy stuff like forwarding the text to myself without the music. That becomes disorganized. Well when I do delete these letters with music, it creates that file again in Deleted folder. Now in 3 places. Then it fails to decrease the size of the original folder. It's been that way a few weeks now. Then I "empty" the delete folder, that takes a few days to clear, but does. The space is STILL being taken in the original folder. The mail is no longer listed but folder space is same. I don't want to send or receive files with Outlook again. But doing it at my mail provider site means I don't have a neat record in my computer.
