The usual cause for odd symptoms in Windows Mail is a non-
compatible antivirus program. Which antivirus are you running?
As a minimum, email scanning in the antivirus must be turned off,
although that may not be sufficient to eliminate all bad effects.
In a worst case scenario, your antivirus may need to be uninstalled.
If turning off your antivirus email scanning function does not resolve
your problem, consider upgrading to Windows Live Mail, because it
is less prone to suffering bad effects from overly intrusive antivirus
Email scanning in any antivirus must be disabled, for reasons

Incidentally, checking your email as frequently as once every minute
may cause the mailbox on the server to 'hang'. The minimum safe
checking interval is 5 minutes.
