    Unable to empty deleted items folder

    Hello.

    I am unable to right click and empty my deleted items folder. When I do, it simply deletes one email, not the entire folder. I have tried a system restore to a few days ago when I know it worked.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hi tsmama and welcome to Vista Forums

    It sounds like you could possibly have a Stuck Message in this folder. Follow the instructions in this Tutorial: Windows Mail problems
    In particular, refer to the section indicated:
