Some time ago, I was checking my email when we had a brief but sudden power outage. This totally screwed up Outlook 2007. I was in the process of emptying out my Junk mail when it happened. After the power came back on, I went back to my email and the junk mail that I was deleting was in the deleted items folder but Outlook would not let me delete it!! I somehow created a secondary folder in the deleted items folder and was able to transfer those undeletable emails to isolate them. At least that way, I could kind of control new junk and deleted items in the Deleted items folder. Until today when the blasted power went out again for just a few seconds. Now, I can't delete anything from my Deleted Items folder!!!
I am running Outlook 2007, WinXP. I ran a 'repair' from the Office installation disc and it ran smoothly. I re-booted, but still cannot delete these blasted items!! I went looking for the scanpst.exe file to run but can't find it anywhere on my computer (thought that my Office repair would have re-installed it).
I copied my .pst files to a folder on my desktop to 'backup' my emails, but I don't know what the heck I'm doing and I'm so tired of searching the internet until I found this site. Can anyone please help me?
Thank you very much,
