It may be possible to fix the problem using these steps :
  1. Open Outlook Express
  2. Click "Local Folders" in the left side navigation
  3. Select New Folder and name it TEMP
  4. If possible move all of the email from your Inbox to the TEMP folder
  5. Go to menu bar and select Tools -> Options -> Maintenance -> Store Folder and then write down the location of your inbox
  6. Close Outlook Express,
  7. Use My Computer to go to the location is step 5 and then delete the file inbox.dbx
  8. Open Outlook Express - The Inbox folder should be auto recreated.
  9. Move your email from the TEMP folder back to your Inbox

Thank you so much for your help to resolve this issue. I had googled the error msg for help and after trying to download a tool to fix without success, I followed your instructions to delete the inbox.dbx file and it worked like a charm. I have been without email on this computer for about a month not knowing how to correct the issue. So will definitely come back here if I need help again!

This is a great help. Just one thing also. On 32bit machines you Outlook Express mailbox size has a limit of 2GB.

If you have to save message archive and use folders to ensure you do not hit the limit.

Hi folks.
This is probably a simpler fix.
It is probably caused by your spam folder being full on the server.
To fix: login to your "webmail" account and select "spam" folder. select "all" and delete them.
Close outlook and reopen it and your emails should start flowing again.
Regards, Bruce

To fix outlook error 0x800c013, you have to rename inbox.dbx file.
And for this go to start button and type inbox.dbx in the search box and hit enter.
Navigate the inbox.dbx file and right click it and click on rename.
Rename the inbox.dbx file to inbox.old .
Then start outlook when the outlook starts then it automatically create new inbox.dbx.
