    The error message I’m getting started after doing some updates. (Should have
    known better) I'm getting two the first one reads:

    Windows mail could not be started. Initializing junk filtering, your
    computer may be out of memory or your disk is full. (0X80070002)

    When you click on the ok button then i get a second window which reads:
    Windows mail could not be started because MSOE.DLL could not be initialized.

    How do i fix this? I have tried some update however nothing seems to work.

  2. Run my WMUtil program to compact and repair the database and see if that
    fixes it. See www.oehelp.com/WMUtil/

    You might also see point 3 here: www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3 and the
    section on WinMail.

  4. Then the next logical step is to upgrade to Windows Live Mail:

  5. Do you have antivirus software running? If so, try disabling it and see if
    that makes any difference. Otherwise you can rename the Windows Mail
    directory (change it to Windows Mail Old, or anything) under
    C:\users\[yourusername]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail . You will
    probably need to go to Control Panel | Folder Options | View and enable
    showing hidden files and folders and also perhaps protected and OS files to
    see those directories.

    If that doesn't fix it then there is likely something else interfering.

    That will give you a blank message store and it should start WinMail
    completely fresh.
