  • Corrupted email files

    I cannot delete one of the emails in my inbox, it just displays An unknown error has occurred nor does it allow me to see the Properties. I am using Windows Live mail 2012 with Win 7 64 bit.

    No doubt the files were corrupted as I have managed to remove others, that did show the warning by using Defrag, Chkdsk, or by Repairing all Windows essentials. But uninstalling Windows Live Mail and then downloading and reinstalling it had no effect, since all the emails and account settings were not removed.

    Has anyone an idea how to reliably delete emails please

    Re: Corrupted email files

    Actually I have now been allowed to delete the remaining corrupted file after I delete all the other files in the Inbox.

    But it is a pity MS do not have the sense to dump ALL emails in folders where we can easily access them to delete or copy, instead of hiding them in some invisible area.
