Using Windows Explorer on my PC, I can navigate to Mobile Device>My Pocket
PC>Databases. There is a system folder in there ("FLDR 1001516") that I
have figured out is the "Deleted Items" folder in the Active Sync Inbox
account on my Axim x3i. I have a stranded email in my Deleted Items folder
on my Axim that I cannot move, delete or open. The databases folder does
not show up using the Axim File Explorer or a registry editor (I am using
Kilmist 2.5). I can only see the databases folder with Windows File
Explorer but I cannot edit the contents of any of the system folders,
including FLDR 1001516. Is there a way to edit this folder so I can delete
the corrupted/orphaned email stuck in my Deleted Items box? (I have tried
various other means to delete this file including uninstalling ActiveSync,
creating new partnerships, soft resets, etc. I did do a hard reset but
restored my programs from a backup and of course the problem email
returned - I am trying anything but a hard re-set and reinstall of all
programs although by now it probably would have taken less time!). Thanks
for any advice.

UPDATE:
After much trial and error, I did a google for a pocket pc system database
editor. Got a hit for a program called Pocket dbExplorer by Phatware
(http://www.phatware.com/hpcdbex.html). Downloaded the 30 day free trial
and it did the trick perfectly. It let me get right into the system
databases folder and remove the offending, and offensive, item. Slick as
can be. Hope this helps someone.
