    Windows Mail problems "Message cannot be found"

    OK ... having immense problems with VISTA mail.
    Rebuilt Vista (32 bit) mail re-imported ...
    Many of the folders have all the mails ... but when you click on them, no body .. just "Message cannot be found" or in one folder correct headers but wrong body for every mail.

    Googled around on on Microsoft forums the same response given many times by MS 'expert' ... go to system tools and run Inbox repair tool .... there is no such tool shown.
    I run the WM Util tool ... several times ... still the same.

    I went to missing folders deleted mails and using cut & paste put copies back in there all OK ... shut down next day, loads of them back to "message can not be found"

    I am fully up to date (Dec 2011) but it no longer tells me what ver Vista I have when I click start > computer > properties ... just says its vista ultimate
    Windows update does not show any updates .. so assume I'm up to date
