  2. That symptom can be caused by interference from an antivirus
    program. Which antivirus are you running? Some of them cause
    problems with Windows Mail over time. As a minimum, email
    scanning in the antivirus should be turned off, although that may
    not be sufficient to eliminate all bad effects. In a worst case scenario,
    your antivirus may need to be uninstalled/reinstalled or replaced.

    Email scanning in any antivirus should be disabled, for reasons
    explained here:

    As an alternative to replacing your antivirus, consider upgrading to
    Windows Live Mail, because it is less prone to suffering bad effects from
    overly intrusive antivirus programs:
