Assuming all your account settings are correct, there is a possibility
that your antivirus program is interfering. Windows Mail is not
compatible with most McAfee and Norton security programs.
Those will need to be uninstalled, NOT just disabled.
If after uninstalling your antivirus the Windows Mail problem does
not improve, delete the corrupted mail account, restart Windows Mail,
then recreate that account.
After uninstalling your non-compatible antivirus, download
and install a more compatible antivirus like:
AVG free edition: http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/us/frt/0?prd=aff
Avast free edition: http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html
With either of those, during the install phase you must select custom
install, and then deselect the email scanning option.
