> How can I delete folder in left panel "Recovered Messages"

The following method as been reported as being successful, several times.

------

Go to Tools>options>advanced>maintenance>message store.

Select and copy the location.

Cancel your way out of there.

Select the Recovered Message folders and delete them, then empty the deleted
items folder.

Close WM !!!!

Go to Control Panel>classic view (top left)>folder options>view tab>enable
Show hidden Files and Folders>apply/ok your way out.

Now go to the Start Button>Run, and paste the message store location, that
you copied earlier, to the run line>OK

This will open Windows Explorer to your message store, find and delete all
of
the Recovered Message folders.

Close Windows Explorer.

Do not Open WM yet !!!!!

Try using this utility to repair and compact the mail store, with WM closed

WMUtil http://www.oehelp.com/WMUtil/

Please read the instructions.

Hopefully, that should sort you out for now.

Deleting 'Recovered Messages' would not cause those symptoms,
but it may well be that a common cause exists for the appearance of
the Recovered Messages and the latest symptoms.

Try running the various repair functions in the WMUtil program:
http://www.oehelp.com/WMUtil

If no improvement, upgrade to Windows Live Mail:

In "Maintenance" you will see a long pathname to the folder that holds all
of your email messages - this is what is known as the "message store",
a/k/a, "store folder". These instructions have simply asked you to "copy"
that location - you know how to click and drag to "highlight it" and
right-click - copy? You just need to get that copied down so you can
re-enter it later (even if you write it down, but be sure it is correct!).

Even if you are successful at removing the "Recovered" folder,
chances are good that it will return since you haven't eliminated the
cause. The easiest fix is simply to upgrade to Windows Live Mail:

I'm sure your local organizations including your community college have
free classes in basic computer terminology.
