    I have clicked "ok" when this message pops up and changed my settings as
    instructed to 100 runs, but still keep receiving this pop up. I hardly ever
    Windows mail and there are no messages in any of my folders. Any info would
    be greatly appreciated. Additionally, I have tried just cancelling the
    message box but it just keeps coming back up. If I do click ok it will stop
    for a few minutes but then resumes.

  2. WinXP SP3?

    Some programs access the WinMail folders often, causing the count to go up
    and triggering the message. Such programs include:
    IBM Rapid Access keyboard.
    Windows Desktop Search
    Window Live Mail

  4. Putting a Mail gadget on the sidebar will do it also.

    1. I opted to compact messages about 5 days ago and now incoming messages are
    disappearing from my Inbox daily to the message store folder. How can
    messages stored in the WindowsMail file be opened?

    2. How can I prevent the incoming emails from disappearing to this folder? I
    have increased the number of runs and it seems to make no difference.

    Thanks for the help.

    You shouldn't store emails in any of the default folders
    Inbox/etc. You should create custom folders

    But what do you mean the emails are disappearing t
    the message store folder? How can you tell? All email
    are in the store folder which is on your hard drive a
    opposed to the folders you see which are within Window

    Compacting is vital to keeping Windows Mail from becomin
    corrupt and should be done. It should not affect emails

  7. Open the Inbox folder, then look near the upper right corner.
    Does it say "Hide Read Messages" or "Show All Messages"?
    Each folder saves its 'current view' setting, so check that setting in
    every folder.
