    I have just installed Windows Live Mail. The mail headers are downloaded but
    when i try to open any message it gives the following message.

    Windows Live Mail encountered an unexpected problem while displaying this
    message. Check your computer for low memory or low disk space and try again

    Help is appreciated.

    How much RAM memory do you have? How much free space does your
    hard drive have?

    In Windows Mail, this is often due to interference from an antivirus
    What if any antivirus programs do you have?

    Well, i have 30 GB of Free Space on my hard drive and on my XP Pro i have 1
    GB RAM. The antivirus i use is Symantec. The space should not be an issue.

    Disable Symantec's email scanning(inbound/outbound) and Internet Worm Protection..see if the problem disappears.

    Disabling the Symantec does not help. Moreover disabling the antivirus should
    not be required in the first place. I am sure i don't want to disable my
    incoming virus protection for Emails. I have other mail clients running on my

    Disabling Email Scanning does not leave you unprotected against viruses that
    are distributed as email attachments. Norton AntiVirus Auto-Protect scans
    incoming files as they are saved to your hard drive, including email and email
    attachments. Email Scanning is just another layer on top of this. To make sure
    that Auto-Protect is providing the maximum protection, keep Auto-Protect
    enabled and run LiveUpdate regularly to ensure that you have the most recent
    virus definitions.

    I am experiencing the same problem as Ambarish. I have 2 Gb of RAM, 85 Gb of
    free drive space and I have uninstalled Norton Antivirus as it was causing
    problems with other programs.

    E-mail messages from my ISP e-mail account come through fine but with
    e-mails from from my hotmail account I get the same low memory/disk space

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    At least for Windows Mail, just uninstalling a Norton antivirus program
    fails to remove the part of it that causes problems. You often need to run
    cleanup program as well:


    You may even need to remove your email account under your email program,
    then restart the email program and add the account again. Note that, under
    Windows Live Mail, this will delete that account's messages unless you
    create one or more storage folders for them, then move then there until
    the account is added again.

    With that antivirus program, you have more of a chance of fixing the
    problem by finding a option in the antivirus program to disable email
    scanning and leaving it disabled. Email scanning only allows you to find
    viruses a little faster; but with it disabled, you should still find them as
    they try to escape from the email.
