    I had a blue-screen coincide with an incoming (not spam) email message. Now,
    this message can't be deleted. Can't read the message either.

    It shows:

    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.

    Windows Mail


    When I try to delete it, I get the message:
    "an unknown error has occurred."

    I have tried selecting the message above it, the corrupt message, and the
    message below, and deleting all three messages, but that doesn't work either.

    Any suggestions?

    I hate the thought of having to look at this message for the life of the
    computer, but I also hate the thought of backing up all my files, and
    restoring the computer back to original factory settings.

    Help !!!!

    Thanks, everyone!
