    I have followed the instructions given elsewhere to reset mail's database
    when I get the unknown error after an email refuses to delete - only thing is
    I have now done it 3 times and it seems that every day another email gets
    added that refuses to delete.

    It's a recurring probblem - I'd suggest Windows Mail is not fit for purpose.

    are you using one of the recommended to be dumped virus programs.
    were you using one of these virus programs.
    did you remove and recreate your email accounts.

    Bikeman,

    I and several other people have had the same problem. Go to

    www.oehelp.com/wmutil

    and download Steve Cochran's utility. Then use the utility (after
    unzipping) to compact your e-mail and the problem will go away. It worked
    for me.

    Good luck.

    None of the solutions work for more than a few days. The problem keep coming
    back. This mail client is not fit for purpose without a fix from microsoft.

  8. That is true. There is no permanent fix, which is why I'm
    recommending that most users save themselves the
    aggravation and switch to the new Windows Live Mail.

  10. I'm not sure about this, but the WLM beta may not be open
    to non-US residents at this time. Some others have complained
    about not seeing it listed as available at
    http://get.live.com/betas/home

    by 'live' I assume that this is webbased? Not sure I want my personal folders
    held on an ms server rather than locally.

  13. That utility only clears the outbox. The OP did not say that the problem message
    was stuck in the outbox.
