Also - will it work in here?

(nut out if it's a hardware issue or a software issue by trying to delete something else first)

OE = outlook express

Its bloody stupid .. when I try to open the deleted emails box OE changes slightly.

And now it will let me attempt to move an email to the delete box - but when I let go of it a REPLY TO THE EMAIL BOX opens  :-\

Mmm.... sorry - me dont know... it could be anything from the OE software, graphics card to keyboard.


Delete OE and install office 2007.... that's what I would do...

U gotta HAVE Office 2007 to install it, but I have found out that shift/delete works.

Guess that has to do for now  ;D

Ive got a wish list at the moment .. a new lappy each is at the top of it  :D

Thanks for that Magoo - but it aint the answer.

If I click on deleted items the box dont even open -- and when i go to the local folders the deleted box doesnt even show ...

I have recieved instructions telling me to rename the deleted box in IE - but I dont like playing in there  >:(

Too easy to make mistakes .. I might have a lookee though  ;D
