MS Outlook Express V6 shows error when sending mails

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


Hello experts, 

I am having a weird issue with MS Outlook Express. This issue occurs whenever I try to send an email. The Outlook works fine, but when I press the send button it gives an error. Here is the error below:

“An unknown error has occurred. Account: 'Personal',Server: '', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110,Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800C0133 “

So far all my emails have been sent so this issue does not actually affect the emails. Still, I do not understand why this error occurs and what it means. Please help me resolve this because I don’t know how to deal with it. I have tried updating the Outlook as well, but I am still getting the error.  I am currently using Outlook version 6.

Try uninstalling and then reinstalling Microsoft Outlook Express 6 to restore its configurations back to default and fix some corrupted files as well as the settings that you might have customized. If this does not work, try checking your computer for any possible errors. Use a disk utility application to check the system. For a much thorough diagnostics on the system, use a disk utility application like Norton Utilities, PC Tools Performance Toolkit, or Norton SystemWorks. If still nothing happened and the same error still appears after every time you send an email, try checking your account settings. Check if every option is properly selected according to your preferences.

This problem is due to a corrupted inbox file. If you reinstall the application the corrupted inbox file will be restored with the original working file. But if you don’t want to reinstall the application, you may try doing these:

  1. Open Microsoft Outlook Express.
  2. Click Local Folders.
  3. Select New Folder and then name it as temp.
  4. Move all your messages to the temp folder if it is still possible.
  5. Click Tools, Options, Maintenance, Store Folder, then write down the URL or the location of your inbox.
  6. Close Microsoft Outlook Express.
  7. Open Windows Explorer then navigate to the location of your inbox then delete inbox.dbx.
  8. Open Microsoft Outlook Express again. Your inbox should automatically be recreated. Move all the messages from the temp folder to your new inbox.
