I recently had to make a change to my POP email settings which caused my Windows Live Mail to re-download all of my inbox items. This is roughly 1500 messages. It didn't replace the current messages but added new ones to my inbox so I had roughly 1500 duplicates.
To delete these duplicates I went into the message store folder at
C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail
and deleted the emails that were updated Today for the "Inbox" directory of that mail account.
The problem is that Windows Live mail still reflects that I have 3k messages and the duplicates still exist while viewing my inbox. They now however say:
Message cannot be found
The contents of this message cannot be found.
Windows Live Mail
How do I refresh the Inbox view so it reflects my current emails, removing the 1500 emails that "cannot be found?"
