Chances are, there is one 'stuck' email in your Outbox.
To find it, move or delete as many of those messages as you can.
Moving them to the Drafts folder is a good temporary holding place.
After you find that one remaining message that is undeletable and
unmovable, apply the Microsoft fix: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/941090
Note: From the evidence accumulated over the last 8 months, it
appears that Windows Mail is not compatible with McAfee and
Norton antivirus, which is why this problem continues to happen.
If you want a permanent solution, the non-compatible antivirus program
will need to be uninstalled, not just disabled.
After uninstalling your non-compatible antivirus, download
and install a more compatible antivirus like the free Avast: http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html
Even compatible antivirus programs will need to have their
email scanning option turned off. For more on this topic see http://www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3
