    Have you tried this fix, downloaded and installed with Windows Mail not
    running?

    Although it's labelled as for mail stuck in the Outbox, it also works in
    other folders. If you don't know whether to use the 32-bit version or
    the 64-bit version, try the 32-bit version first. Certain common
    antivirus programs, such as most of those from Norton or McAfee,
    or a recent one from Trend, tend to cause such problems, although
    seldom immediately, so if you have such a program, remember
    where to find the fix - you are likely to need it again.

    I tried deleting the actual Deleted Items folder in Vista's Windows Mail
    folder for my user.

    It tells me I need permission to do that...

    I'm the ONLY Administrator on this laptop, hell, the only user!

    Thanks a lot Bill.

    There are problems trying to delete any of the standard folders,
    such as the Deleted Items folder.

    You should be able to delete its contents, but not the folder
    itself.

    One of the FIRST things you need to learn about Vista is that even an
    administrator has only normal powers until your superpowers are required...
    like Popeye eating his spinach..

    Download and install this hotfix, with Windows Mail not running:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/941090

    Although it's labelled as for mail stuck in the Outbox, it also works in
    other folders. If you don't know whether to use the 32-bit version or

    tend to cause this and other problems in Windows Mail, although
    seldom immediately, so if you have such a program, remember
    where to find the hotfix, and hope it will install again if you need it
    again. A recent version of the Trend antivirus program also causes
    assorted problems in Windows Mail.

    Internet explorer has been locking up on me and loading really slow
    Windows mail wouldn't empty deleted items folder. I got disgusted wit
    both and downloaded MOZILLA FIREFOX browser plus THUNDERBIRD email
    FIREFOX has completely delivered me of the problems in IE and after
    used THUNDERBIRD a couple of times, I tried WINDOWS MAIL again and gues
    what??? NOW the deleted items folder empties just fine. Give it a try
    DO NOT search for FIREFOX for vista, however, or you get the paid fo
    version. Just search for free FIREFOX browser. You can also download a
    add on for FIREFOX that lets you AUTOFILL pages. Can't beat it with
    stick
