    Right-click on it and choose Delete. The folders you can't delete will have
    Delete grayed out. Windows Mail will re-create it if ever recovers a
    message again...

    Hi Barry,

    If you able to without it reappearing, you can just delete it. If it keeps reappearing, try backing up your email messages and then delete your email account. Close and reopen Windows Mail and add your account back, then import your messages back.

    Windows Mail re-creates the recovered messages folder every time I open
    Mail. But there are never aby messages in it. How do I stop this??

    The easiest way to get rid of this problem is to upgrade to Windows
    Live Mail:

    I too have the problem of recovered messages. If I upgrade to Windows Live
    Mail, what happens to my Windows Mail and all of it's contents?
