NTLK HELP: Storage Error #-10606

Basically, I did something stupid. I tried to X-port a whole buncha
messages from one folder all at once. Essentially, what happened is
that I flooded my external storage card outbox and it ran out of
storage space (eight meg card). I was essentially screwed because the
card was so full that it wouldn't even let me delete any of the
offending messages, move messages, or anything.

I went to the backup set I had and restored the inbox from the
external _and_ the internal in/out boxes, thinking that this would fix
the problem. With that move, I essentially AM able to use the Newton
again w/the exception of the inbox or outbox. I get an error:
"Storage related error occurred. evt.ex.fr.store #-10606."
Everything else works just fine. I then deleted a backup set from the
external card thinking that creating more room would help. Nope -
still unable to open the in/out box w/o errors.

After removing the storage card, you can access the inbox w/o any
problems when accessing only the internal memory, so my conclusion is
that I have at least one hosed message in that in/out box on the card
that I can't get to. I put the damaged data card back in _after_
opening the inbox from internal and I get a peek at the damaged file,
but can't do anything about it (tried deleting, moving etc.).

I have also tried resetting the Newton multiple times - always comes
up with the same error.

Anyone have any suggestions as to how to correct this one?

Thanks in
