Error when using Outlook Express

If you are getting the error code “0x800C0133” this is because the folders.dbx file is missing, corrupted or is set to read-only.

To fix the problem, first try to restart your computer, if the same error is still showing try following the steps below.

  • Click on Tools menu located on the upper part of your Outlook Express
  • Click on Options
  • Click Maintenance Tab
  • Click Store Folder. After doing so, it will show the location of your Outlook Express files
  • Close your Outlook Express and go to the location that you saw on the step above
  • Rename “inbox.dbx” to “oldinbox.dbx” or you may also name it to any name you would like to use
  • Open Outlook express again and this will create a new inbox.dbx file

If your old emails are not damaged or corrupted, you will still be able to recover them.

  • On your Outlook Express window, right-click on the icon for Local Folders in the list
  • Click on New Folder and then name it to “Old Inbox”
  • Search for oldinbox.dbx or the name you have used and the old emails should be inside that folder.
