    I have 21 messages in my deleted mail folder that I cannot delete or move.
    The message body also will not display. Can anyone help me remove these.

  2. Turn off the Preview pane (menu: View -> Layout -> Show preview pane),
    delete the messages, then turn the Preview pane back on.

    Usually does the trick.

    I tried with preview pane turned off and it still will not delete the 21
    stuck emails.

  6. That was for an old beta and its rather crude in that it deletes the entire
    message store database. Its a not a fix so much as a shotgun approach. <G>

    Steve thanks for the utility it worked. In the deleted mail folder I would
    select empty contents of folder and it would only delete one at a time so I
    did it for each one and got rid of all of them. Thanks again.

    I found if you go to edit/empty deleted mail it will delete one at a time, a
    bit of a pain. You'd think Microsoft would address these issues in a more
    timely manner, but hey it took them what 3 yrs to really get XP running
    right, lets hope that they have learned a lesson & they get it right with
    VIsta ASAP.

    thanks for the program steve..this helped clear out my junk mail folder. it
    took a couple of times of doing the repair before it took and I had to delete
    one at a time by clicking delete all contents.. and it would only delete one
    at a time but it worked!!!
