OE Can't Read Some DBX Files
Hi Rafail,

I read that dbx files can become corrupted somehow. Some of mine cannot be read by OE2,1,1, so maybe they are corrupted. I Tried file name changes and a bunch of things but no success. It's really troubling when you can't refer to your sent file and then are not able to restore it. Any ideas how to restore dbx files?
Corrupted dbx files cn be restored with some tools available on internet but they are not free, and i dont even know if restoration is guaranteed.
You can delete or rename the corrupted dbx files and when you open oe it will re-create them but blank.
If the corrupted dbx file is "sent", try renaming "Outbox.dbx" and/or "Sent Items.dbx"
