Re: Heres an odd one

Hello TPR,

This will help show you how to fix this stuck undeletable email message
problem in Windows Mail for all folders.

Installing the KB941090 update will just fix the problem for now. You
must stop the cause to prevent it from happening again. Read the section
titled "FIRST" in this tutorial about antivirus and other security
programs to help prevent this from happening again, then install the
KB941090 Microsoft Update in the section titled "SECOND" to fix and be
able to delete the stuck message from the problem folder.

If this does not help, then give the manual way a try.

Hope this helps,

Next I tried to drag and drop it into the Deleted folder and again got

stating "The selected message(s) could not be moved. An unknown error

What's up with the message? I can't open it, move it, send it or delete

I have the same problem in recieved mail. My system tells me that it is
corrupt. when closing the "not enough memory or space" page, I get a
glimpse of a dark background with a skull and crossbones. I also can
delete this e-mail.
