The only other possibility is interference from an antivirus program.
Which antivirus are you running? Some of them cause problems with
Windows Mail over time. As a minimum, email scanning in the antivirus
should 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/reinstalled or replaced.
Email scanning in any antivirus should be disabled, for reasons
explained here: http://thundercloud.net/infoave/tuto...ning/index.htm
As a possible temporary fix, delete that corrupted mail account,
restart Windows Mail, then recreate the account.
If still no improvement, consider upgrading to Windows Live Mail,
because it is less prone to suffering bad effects from overly intrusive
