Sometimes your sent messages are not visible in the sent folder in Outlook Express. This happens when the "sentitem.dbx" is corrupted. Here's how to resolve this problem.
Browse to the application data folder ,where the sentitem.dbx is stored (the folder path is
different in Win9x and Winnt systems).
Save the sentitem.dbx in mydocuments or any folder. Also save any important messages.
Delete the sentitem.dbx file.
When Outlook Express is restarted it is created again.
