I have had this problem twice.
You have to delete them all one by one close windows mail reopen it
Then again delete them all one by one again
over and over
Every time you lose a few but not all.
It is a royal pain!

People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did, but
people will never forget how you made them feel.
