Memory Issues with Microsoft® Outlook Express
What are the issues when Outlook Express shows not enough memory error message?
Outlook Express is an e-mail and news client application that is commonly included with Internet Explorer versions. Now this application is outmoded by the Windows mail and after that Windows Live Mail replaced it. In Windows XP, the Windows messenger is integrated with Outlook Express. Outlook Express would create e-mail messages only when the program requests it. When Outlook Express was intended to use on a single system, its messages and settings cannot be stored on a server. Outlook express shows some error messages that displays the text “not enough memory” while trying to access it. This is because of the primary or secondary memory issues on the computer or due to some security problems like the virus attacks. This error is extremely irritating one for users. Once this error occurs, you would be unable to send or receive any mails or attachments.
Following are the possible causes and tips to fix such issues:
- Change the storing location
- Delete old and unnecessary messages
The reasons for the memory issues with Outlook Express are mainly due to the changes in settings related to Outlook Express. If some vulnerability arises with the dll or dbx files with Outlook Express and if any Security softwares delete these files then you might face issues like Outlook Express shows not enough memory error. The unavailability of primary or secondary memory within your system might also result in not enough memory error.
Change the storing location
To solve the memory issues with Outlook Express, you have to change the storage location path to another drive with sufficient memory. For that, open Outlook Express, navigate to Tools menu and select its Options. Then click on the 'Maintenance' tab and press the 'Store Folder' button. Then Change the location by the change button that is provided. This would solve the memory issues with Outlook Express.
The removing of unnecessary messages from Outlook Express folders would solve the memory issues. For that, Open the Outlook and click on the 'Inbox' folder, highlight the old messages and hit 'Delete'. For expanding more memory, the send mails, other draft and attachments must be deleted from Outlook Express. After this process, check Outlook Express memory and restart the application.
