About every three days the following message comes up from my email program Outlook Express:
“To free up disk space, Outlook Express can compact messages. This may take up to a few minutes.” Then I have the option to cancel or say OK, at which time it will take up to ten or fifteen minutes to perform the compaction. If Cancel is chosen, OE will ask this same god-damned question each and every time I subsequently use it.
Now, I’ve got about sixteen brazillion megabytes of disk space, and my entire twenty years of emails probably wouldn’t make a dent in it. How can I dissable this message from OE? It’s really irritating as Hell - I hate a nagging computer.
May I ask several favors from the Board.
Please don’t suggest I go over to Firefox, etc. I’m perfectly happy with IE6.
Please don’t suggest that I get a new email program. Except for the above, OE is quite satisfactory.
Within those constraints, anybody out there have any advice? Thanks in advance.
