How to Delete Outbox DBX

DBX files are database files used with Microsoft Outlook Express. The files contain all the messages in a single Outlook Express (OE) folder. These files are stored in the "Store" folder. Within this folder, there is a DBX file for each corresponding folder in OE. The outbox represents emails that you have composed, but have yet to send. Deleting the outbox database is just a matter of locating the "Store" folder.
