Outlook Express is an economical way of being in touch with your contacts as it is easily available integrated with Internet Explorer in the Windows systems. It provides the option to use emails, tasks, journals, newsgroups, calendar items, contacts, etc. All such data is stored in a proprietary file called DBX (Database Exchange) files. These DBX files can sometimes get corrupt, which prevents Outlook Express to function properly. In such cases, you should take appropriate corrective measures to perform DBX recovery. However, if you are unable to do so, then you should use a third-party Outlook Express Recovery software to recover outlook express.



Consider a scenario wherein you have created a user profile in Outlook Express. For this profile, you have saved the DBX files on a network drive. While using it, you are sending an email in Outlook Express 6.0 but it fails to send. An error message is getting displayed as a result, which is:


An unknown error has occurred. Protocol: SMTP, Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800C013B.”


In addition, you also find that the email is not getting saved in the Sent Items folder either.




There could be the following reasons for this scenario:

  • The DBX files are shared on the network drive, which is causing this problem.

  • The Sent Items.dbx file is corrupted or damaged.



To resolve this issue, you should perform the following methods:

  • Move the DBX files to local hard disk: You should move the DBX files to your local hard disk as there are bound to be many problems when you operate Outlook Express over the network.

  • Recreate the Sent Items.dbx file: After moving the Outlook Express DBX files to your local hard disk, you should recreate Sent Items.dbx file by renaming the older one and restarting Outlook Express. Once the Sent Items folder is rebuilt, the problem would be resolved.


However, if you still are facing the same problems while sending an email then you should recover Outlook Express using a third-party DBX recovery tool. Such read-only tools employ fast yet sophisticated algorithms to scan the system thereby ensuring safe and secure mail recovery.
