Left hand pane Folder List doesn't update

    When creating a new folder in Windows Mail, the new folder doesn't display in
    the folder list on the left hand side of the screen. You can see it in the
    right hand pane when you view Local Folders but it won't appear on the left
    hand pane Folder List until you close Windows Mail and re-open it.

    The same happens when deleting folders, they don't appear to delete until
    you close and re-open Windows Mail but they do appear in the Deleted Items
    folder when viewing Local Folders in the right hand pane.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as it is driving me mad.

    Thanks

    It worked correctly for me, so I need more info.

    What AntiVirus do ou use? McAfee and Norton work on Vista but are not
    compatible with Windows Mail.

    Have you installed or uninstalled any kind of internet programs?

    I have Norton installed. I've tried stopping Norton and creating a folder in
    Windows Mail but still have the same issue. I have also tried re-installing
    Windows Mail but it still has the same issue.

    I'm wondering whether I would just be better using a different mail app.

  6. Many responders here have reported no relief of bad symptoms
    until they completely uninstalled their incompatible antivirus
    (Norton or McAfee).

    Can you recommend an anti-virus software which is as compatible (or as can
    be) with Vista and Windows Mail?

    Thanks

    Avast (free) or AVG (free) or Nod 32 (not free)

    Both Avast and AVG offer free AV programs that really are Vista compatible,
    including with Windows Mail.

    Personal opinion only - I'm using Avast4.

  10. Does the Inbox have a plus sign in front of it?
    If so, click the plus sign.
