Outlook Express - The message could not be sent (0x800c0131)




Issue


When you open up Outlook Express you get the following error message:

An unknown error has occurred. Protocol: SMTP, Port: 0, Secure SSL: No, Error 0x800c0131Ce problem may be due to corruption or lack of Folders.dbx file. 

Solution

  • To solve this, simply restore the file Folders.dbx.
  • Search for Folders.dbx using the search tool(Start/Find/Files or Folders).
  • Rename the file to make a backup, for example Folders.bak.
  • Launch Outlook Express. Folders.dbx file is automatically recreated and the application opens correctly.
