Outlooks tells me my folders are full but won't allow me to delete old messages.

Outlook will not let me send or receive messages because it says my mailbox is full. When I try to delete messages, I get a message saying " you have exceeded the size of your mailbox" . When I try to permanently delete messages using shift+delete, I get in a look and get the same 'mailbox is full' error message

Do you have an Exchange server or is this a POP/IMAP account with an ISP somewhere?

If it's a POP/IMAP account you may have to log into the webmail and delete a few messages there to free up some room.

Have you emptied your Deleted Items and Junk E-mail folders?
