Are you sure that error message is from Windows Mail? It looks more
likely to be from a different program, Windows Live Mail. If so, you
are likely get better answers in another newsgroup:
If it's from Windows Mail, most of the versions of the Norton antivirus
program are known to cause assorted problems in Windows Mail,
although seldom immediately. In this case, changing the settings of
the Norton program or even disabling it entirely seldom helps. You
usually have to uninstall it instead. You often then have to run this
cleanup program to take care of what the uninstall left behind:
You may even need to remove your email account under Windows
Mail, then restart Windows Mail and add the account again.
If this cures your problem, you may want a replacement antivirus
program that doesn't cause such problems. Most versions of the
McAfee antivirus program and a recent version of the Trend
antivirus program are bad choices; they cause problems inWindows
Mail also. I recommend either avast! or AVG, either one with a
custom install where you tell it to leave out the part that scans email. http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html http://free.grisoft.com/ww.download?prd=afe
