    I had the same problem, I started draging all my mail to the junk mail folder
    and deleting them that way... Then I highlighted about 10 from my delete
    folder and deleted them that way or how many it would let me (could be 1)
    Then under edit click on empty delete items folder...did that about 5-10
    times, then it started letting me delete more and more, soon I could
    highlight about 100 , then I just highlighted them all(I had about 1500
    emails in my delete folder). It let me, so far I haven't had that problem
    again and It's been about 2 months, I hope this helps you...

    A fix as been released by M$ to resolve the problem of undeletable mails:

    "Messages may be stuck in the Outbox when you use Windows Mail on a computer
    that is running Windows Vista"


    Ignore the title, it works on other folders in addition to the Outbox.
