    I have a brand new PC, set up Windows Mail, all working fine for 2 days,
    imported some emails from old Outlook mail on old PC, very convuluted but got
    there ok and then suddenly Windows Mail has stopped displaying anything and I
    have the following message:
    Folder could not be displayed
    Windows Mail could not open this folder.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Possible causes are:

    Low disk space.

    Low memory.


    Windows Mail

    Have rebooted many times, but no help.

    This fix sometimes helps with similar problems, so you might try it.
    Download and install it with Windows Mail not running:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/941090

    If you don't know whether to use the 32-bit version or the 64-bit
    version, try the 32-bit version first. Certain common antivirus
    programs, such as most of those from Norton or McAfee, or a
    recent one from Trend, tend to cause various problems in
    Windows Mail, so if you have one of these programs, remember
    where to find the fix - you are likely to need it again.

    Importing messages from Outlook requires extra effort. I assume
    you either installed Outlook on you new computer to help Windows
    Mail read the .pst file, or imported them first into Outlook Express
    on your old computer and then imported them from Outlook
    Express into Windows Mail.

  3. This problem can be caused by your antivirus. Windows Mail
    is not compatible with most McAfee and Norton security
    programs. Those will need to be uninstalled, NOT just disabled.

    After uninstalling your non-compatible antivirus, download
    and install a more compatible antivirus like:

    AVG free edition:

    or
    Avast free edition:
    http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

    With either of those, during the install phase you must select custom
    install, and then deselect the email scanning option.
