Hi I'm guessing that these have attachments and have multiple addresses where they've been forwarded etc and that you have a lot of disk space. This being the case I suspect and this is a guess that they contain some virus or other which are trying to unpack to your system but anti virus software is'nt letting them. I should contact your e-mail provider and ask them for help.
I hope this helps. Please let me know how you get on.

Go to the web server that you get your mail from (example www.comcast.net login to mail) and delete the files from there. I have had this problem a couple of times and it has worked for me

Why, since change over from BT Yahoo to BT mail, when I download my messages fom BT To Windows Live Mail do they not go into the BT Trash Box like they used to?


Every mail provider has its own way of deleting or trashing the mail. Also each account has its own folder for trash. You should look in the Trash folder of the correct provider and correct account. But look careful. It could be your not trowing it away, but archiving the mail to a complete other folder from BT mail. Swiping to the left can deletion but like in Gmail, swiping to the left is archiving.

HOW DO I DELETE 18000 UNREAD MESSAGES IN WINDOWS LIVE MAIL FILE CONTAINING 26000 MESSAGES?


You can only select a full page at a time using Live Mail's internet connection.
You can set up another mail program on your computer and download all 26000 messages and select which ones you want to delete and then do it all in one operation. The mail program will then update Live Mail. This will take some time even if you are only downloading the headers.

Two options for Deleting multiple mail messages:

1. The video below shows how to delete a single mail message. To delete multiple mail message you would do the same thing except to delete several mail messages that are in chronological order you would select the top message...press and hold shift....and scroll down to the last message you want to delete and click on that message which will highlight all messages in between the firs and last message you selected. Release the Shift Key. And Delete.

2. To delete multiple messages that aren't in chronological order click on the first message you want to delete. The press and hold the Option Key (Windows Key if you have 3rd Party Keyboard) and select each message you want to delete and it will highlight all those messages individually. After you select all messages you want to delete let go of the Option Key and click on the Delete icon in the mail menu bar.

Important:
This places the deleted emails in your Trash folder within mail. To permanently delete the messages...Right Click on the Trash Icon or hold down Control and then Click on the Trash Icon and select Erase Deleted Items from the drop down menu and they will be permanently deleted and won't take up space on your hard drive.

Need info on how to access deleted messages in Windows Mail


E-mail can be set to "empty the deleted items folder" everytime that you 'quit' from E-mail. If you are using this setting, then that is where your Deleted Items are going.

Cannot forward or reply to messages with attachments, just sits in outbox


Please go ahead and delete some old mails

You can take the backup of the mails before deleting them..

Once you delete some of the old mails it would start sending the messages with attachments and would move into Sent items instead of Outbox.

The main reason is that your mail box limit is exceeded.

Problems configuring Yahoo mail for Windows Mail


The most common causes of these error messages are problems with Internet connectivity and account settings configured incorrectly in Outlook or Outlook Express.

Perform the following methods in order. If one method does not resolve the issue, move on to the next one. The methods are as follows:

Method 1: Start Outlook in safe mode
Method 2: Create a new e-mail profile
Method 3: Delete suspicious messages from your mailbox
Method 4: Check your antivirus vendor’s Web site for additional suggestions
Method 5: Remove, and then reinstall Outlook Express
Method 6: Verify that all SMTP e-mail addresses in a distribution list are valid
Method 7: Examine the configuration of your firewall software

If your antivirus solution includes an e-mail scanning feature, you may have to perform additional configuration tasks to use Outlook or Outlook Express with the antivirus e-mail scanning feature.

Antivirus software that is known to have caused this problem includes products by the following vendors:
  • Symantec (Norton)
  • McAfee
  • Trend Micro (PC-cillin)
  • Panda
