Re: outlook express for windows 7 issue

I don't know what to say anymore on this subject Dennis.  I have warned you time and time again about Outlook Express's flakey behavior.  There are only two possibilities.  Either don't use Outlook Express as Gene says or learn to backup your DBX files.  And no, I will not write a tutorial on how to do this.  It is too much effort for a buggy client which should simply be avoided by less advanced users.

It also appears there are several copies of the same message.  Do I need to
delete the account and start over?

Do you know how to delete that folder?  If you close the program, delete the
folder, then run the program again, it will create a empty and uncorrupted
folder. 
 
Or if you don't care about keeping messages you delete as a safety measure
for a period of time in case of accidental deletion, you can save yourself
the trouble and simply use shift delete.  Then press y for yes when you hear
the are you sure message begin.  That deletes the message and doesn't send
it to the deleted messages folder.  So if the folder is corrupted, it won't
cause a problem because the message is simply deleted.
