Make sure you had the Deleted Items folder open when checking that
setting, because each folder can have its own view setting.
If no improvement, be sure you have installed Vista's SP1 and SP2
updates, then try running the various repair functions in the WMUtil
If still no improvement, upgrade to Windows Live Mail: http://download.live.com/wlmail
