Why am I being watched?

    Why am I being watched?

    Gentlemen:

    A few days ago, I wrote asking for help in deleting items. You red-flagged
    me on your site and indicated that I was being "watched". Why is this? I
    don't think I pose any kind of danger to you or anyone else!!! All I wanted
    to know is how to delete items from my
    deleted items file. There are a number of them that indicate "an error has
    occurred" when I try to delete them. And to see microsoft communities.
    However, I am not getting any answers and I am very disappointed in the way
    I have been treated.

    Any suggestions?

    This is a newsgroup, not a "site".
    There is no one "watching" you.
    Perhaps you clicked on the Watched Items column, the one with the
    eyeglasses? If one of the messages is the color red, and there's an
    eyeglass symbol beside it, click again and again on the eyeglass to make it
    go away. This tool is useful in marking threads that you wish to follow.

    Re: Why am I being watched?

    This watch (of messages posted by you) is on by default in WLMail and
    Windows Mail (Tools | Options | Advanced)
    For the rest this "watch" feature is very much broken since Windows Mail
    came out and MS isn't interested in fixing :-(.
    It worked in Outlook Express...

    About the delete messages :

    Re: Why am I being watched?

    One reason you may not have received replies is because you posted
    to the wrong newsgroup. This newsgroup is for the Windows Live Mail
    program, while it appears that you are using Windows Mail. The latter's
    support newsgroup is microsoft.public.windows.vista.mail .
    The problem concerning undeletable 'stuck' emails is discussed daily
    if not hourly in that newsgroup. Try Microsoft's fix:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/941090
    That article only mentions the outbox folder, but the fix works for
    all folders.
