I guess you mean Windows Mail - which folder are you trying to delete them from?

Ignore the heading which says Outbox - it will work on the other folders as well. Quite a bit to try - it should sort your problem

One thing you could try first - open Windows Mail and click the File menu - select Work Offline, then try and delete again. Don't forget to go back afterwards and click again to remove the tick.

I assume the Empty Deleted Items Folder on the Edit menu doesn't work either?

Thanks Sea Urchin first class.
Right you seam to know computers.
can you tell me why my computer takes so long to stop doing all the things its doing in the back ground. its taking about 15 mins before it slows down. and starts to take note of what i want it to do.
i know its a case of turning off items but what do you turn off??

Thanks
