    I was writing an email earlier when my machine crashed. The email I was
    writing is now in my outbox. However, when I try and access it, I get the
    message "Message could not be displayed
    Windows Mail encountered an unexpected problem while displaying this
    message. Check your computer for low memory or low disk space and try again."
    I have tried deleting this message, but I get a dialogue box with "Unknown
    error". I've been into the Local folders into Outbox and this email is not
    there.

    Unfortunately, this means that I now can't send any emails until I have
    cleared this rogue one. Can anyone help, please?

    TIA
