Try doing a "compact." from within outlook express.

Tools -> Options -> Maintenance -> Clean Up Now -> Compact.

That may compact the attachments enough that you can delete the messages It looks like your inbox is so full it will not allow you to do anything with it.

If this does not work try this link http://www.short-media.com/forum/showthread.php?t=25672 and follow the additional info there.
