Windows Mail inbox seems to have a partialy completed message and will not delete. Mail reports an unknown error has occurred.
I can delete any other message placed in inbox but cannot send any. Can receive messages

Earlier message read OUTBOX instead of inbox.

Try right click and send it to Trash

this may work...

delete it from the Outbox folder via Windows Explorer.
Tools | Options | Advanced tab | Manintenance button | Store Folders button.
Note the location of the messages stores.

Close Windows Mail.

Still no joy with outbox, made outbox 2 but still not working,all methods in 'How to' are for older OE's and won't work with Mail.

You are wrong - WMUtil in MAT ALAN's link is Windows Mail Utility

Here's the link again

Have used WMUtil and it reports outbox as empty but the message remains stuck in outbox.

Ran WMUtil 6 times and it finally reported message deleted, many thanks to all.
