Did this just start happening? Have you confirmed the outgoing server settings are correct? I'd start by checking the settings, then recreating the email account in OE.

Found this for you:

Error 0x800c0133 when you are retrieving email with your Outlook Express (OE) is because of currupted Inbox file.

To remedy please follow these steps:

1. Open OE, on the left pane, right click "Local Folders", select "New Folder...", specify a name for your new folder as "Temp".

2. If you are still able to access "Inbox", move all mails in "Inbox" to the new "Temp" folder.

3. Go to menu "Tools" -> "Options" -> "Maintenance" tab -> "Store Folder" button. It will show the location of your Inbox file, please remember this location.

4. Close OE, go to the location mentioned above, delete the file "inbox.dbx".

5. Restart OE, the "Inbox" folder should be auto recreated. Move back your mails to the new "Inbox", remove the "Temp" folder.
