Do you have your system backed up to an external hard drive or elsewhere?
Here is what I did. I restored, Windows Mail only, to a date that Windows
Mail was working properly. Then I used Steve's utility ( go to www.oehelp.com/wmutil
) to compact my
e-mail. Plus I compact my e-mail every time the dialog box appears.
Hopefully this helps.
