    I have a message sitting in my Inbox that says:<H1 id=ridTitle>Message could not be displayed</H1><P id=ridProblem>Windows Mail encountered an unexpected problem while displaying this message. Check your computer for low memory or low disk space and try again.

    I cannot move it, delete it, etc.
    Has anyone seen this before as well as a fix (without compromising my E-mail db)?

    Found the following advice on the vistareadygames forum (by Steve Cochran):

    Make sure you have antivirus software not set to scan email. You will have

    to look in the antivirus software options and disable that. See

    [url] [/url] the same applies to WinMail.

    Then see if that fixes the problem. If it doesn't then try my WMUtil

    program to compact and repair the database and see if that fixes it. See

    [url] [/url]

    If that doesn't fix it then from my WMUtil program you can see the path to

    the directory where the message store is. Rename that path from Windows

    Mail to Windows Mail Old in Windows Explorer. Then restart WinMail and you

    can then get the messages back by importing from the Old folder.
