Unable to Empty Deleted Items Folder

Guest

When I select Empty Deleted Items Folder after right click on Deleted Items
Folder nothing happens. No messages are removed.

If I go into the message in the Deleted Items Folder and delete it
individually it is removed except for messages that only contain:

Message could not be displayed
Windows Mail encountered an unexpected problem while displaying this
message. Check your computer for low memory or low disk space and try again.

Windows Mail

I have plenty of space on Hard Drive.

Any advice how to clean out Deleted Items Folder and start again?

Thanks in advance.

You're very welcome. Glad it worked for you.

Yeah, I hope so too (but I believe SC is the no. 1 team in the country), at
least Cal HAS to whip Stanturd's ass!

other ideas??

Did you download the proper 32-bit or the 64-bit file for your version of Vista?

Hi Cal Bear,

I tried the 32 bit first when that didn't work I then tried the 64 bit but
had the same message with both.

Hmm. I don't think I've seen your problem with this fix before in this group.

This is Windows Mail in Vista, right? (Not Outlook Express in XP.)

Are you sure Windows Mail is closed when you run the file? To make sure Windows
Mail is closed, right click on the Taskbar and choose Task Manager, Click the
Processes tab, press the "Show processes from all users" button, approve UAC,
click on the Image Name column header to sort alphabetically and look for
WinMail.exe. If found, highlight WinMail.exe and press the "End Process"
button. Then try to run the Outbox fix again.

You are most likely running 32-bit (x86) Vista. To confirm, go to Control Panel
(Classic view) > System, and under the "System" heading, "System type:" will
confirm the version of Vista that you are using.

You might also want to right click on the downloaded fix, select Properties and
press the "Unblock" button before you apply the file.

Again, here is the download link:
