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.
