Outlook Express 6 - problem

I'm having a problem 90% of the time deleting incoming emails on only one of my addresses. I have several mailboxes that share the same @bit, these work fine. But on one I get a "Cannot delete" message or "Cannot display delete folder”
Most *.DBX folders are checked 'Archive'. I have three folders that have no check at all and a whole bunch where the properties cannot even be pulled up to inspect. Is it that I should 'check' as Archive where I can inspect Properties?

Most often when 'deleting' a highlighted email no action happens at all OR on a good day the timer hangs for up to 5 minutes before the delete kicks in!

With an open email there is either no action as above or we get a message that reads ' The message could not be deleted [OK}'

This syndrome is unique to one of three identities and then to one of three mailboxes.

One of life's mysteries or what? " Does anybody out there know how I can fix this before I end up with '000s of unwanted emails that cannot be deleted.
