When I got my new computer I got Windows Vista with it and naturally Windows
Mail came with it,it was working fine and now my little box on the left in my
windows mail has disappeared.The one that holds the tree with the Local
folder list,with my deleted,junk drafts folders ect.Anybody know how can I
edit my windows mail to show the tree again?I don't don't remember touching
anything to make it do that.

Hi SuperFoodLamb,

Check this setting in Windows Mail:

1. Click on View and Layout.
2. Check Folder List.
3. Click OK.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

This happened to me and after a few days.
What I did was open the folder list at the top of the page and then dragged
each folder over to the left hand side. Hope that helps

All but one of my folders has just disappeared in Windows Mail. When I click
on Inbox I get this message: Folder could not be displayed
Windows Mail could not open this folder.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Possible causes are:

Low disk space.

Low memory.

I can't understand what has happened - I've been happily sending emails all
day and suddenly I can't send or save some I have already written. Please
help!

That type of problem is often caused by interference from a non-
compatible antivirus program. Which antivirus are you running?
As a minimum, email scanning in the antivirus must be turned off,
although that may not be sufficient to eliminate all bad effects.
In a worst case scenario, your antivirus may need to be uninstalled.

If turning off your antivirus email scanning function does not resolve
your problem, consider upgrading to Windows Live Mail, because it
is less prone to suffering bad effects from overly intrusive antivirus
programs: http://get.live.com/wlmail/overview

Email scanning in any antivirus must be disabled, for reasons
explained here:
