You're more likely to get an answer in French in you ask in newsgroup:
Your English is better than the French of most of the people in
the vista.mail newsgroup.
Are messages you've been trying to send piling up in your Outbox?
If so move these messages to your Drafts folder or delete them. If
any refuse to do either, download and install this hotfix, with Windows
Mail not running: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/941090
If you want to see it described in French first, click on the triangle
under Article Translations, then French, then the arrow to the right
of the triangle.
Although it's labelled as for messages stuck in the Outbox, it also works in
other folders. If you don't know whether you have a 32-bit version of
Vista or a 64-bit version, try the hotfix for the 32-bit version first.
Certain common antivirus programs, such as most of those from Norton
or McAfee, tend to cause stuck messages and other problems in
Windows Mail, so remember where to find this hotfix and hope it will
install again if you need it again. A recent version of the Trend antivirus
program also causes problems in Windows Mail.
This hotfix is also available as part of the Vista SP1 update, but that
takes longer to install.
