You will need to uninstall the McAfee program completely, as it
is very detrimental to Windows Mail. Reboot and try Windows Mail
again. If it still doesn't work, then McAfee has corrupted your
mail account. Add a new mail account with the same settings as
the old one, then delete the old account. Once you get your email
working properly, download and install a less intrusive antivirus
program such as the free Avast. Whichever antivirus program
you keep, be sure to disable its email scanning option.
