Mail Displays Wrong Message RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running Windows XP 2002, SP3, Live Mail 2009. I move a message from my POP3 inbox to a storage folder. When I go back later and select that message, the wrong message is displayed. In fact no matter which message I select in the storage folder, only one of the older messages in the folder is displayed. Someone had the same problem back in February 2010, but never could find a solution. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks ever so much. Frank

  • I guess I'll answer my own question so others that experience this issue know what to do. Something in the folder in question apparently has become corrupted. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable than me can shed some light on this. I've cured the problem by deleting all the messages in the folder which exhibited the incorrect display and then imported them from my backup file. Everything is now back to normal.

    Just a reminder, Windows Live Mail will only import from a desktop folder called "Mail" which you have to create with the necessary folders in it.
