I looked at the Windows Mail files and found a recovery folder and lots of
0KB files that appeared to be debris from previous events. In addition,
many of my folders were still in Local Folders, an echo of my having brought
the email over from Outlook Express, and there were a lot of eml files in
the Windows Mail folder itself. I decided to clean all of that up before
doing anything, and so far so good. If the problem doesn't come back I
would be inclined to believe that cleaning up the debris restored the karma
of Windows Mail.
BTW, one annoying thing about NOD32 is that when I uncheck "Enable email
protection" and reboot, NOD32 enables email protection. Also, when I
disable all protection to do an installation, re-enabling protection
reinstates all forms of protection, including email protection. Does anyone
know how to be more firm in getting NOD32 to turn off email protection?
