I cannot delete messages. The message I receive is: the deeted folder is unavailable. How do I add that folder ?

Which mail account type are you using?
If IMAP, make sure you are properly subscribed to your configured Deleted Items folder.
It's similar to setting the Sent Items folder; IMAP accounts and saving Sent Items to the server

If you are using a POP3 account, I agree with Ben; run scanpst.exe against your pst-file first.

If the Deleted Items folder is still not available then, start Outlook with the resetfolders switch;
Start-> type; outlook.exe /resetfolders
(note the space in the command above)
