Window Mail losing saved message content

In some folders whatever message I click on the same message opens 
regardless.  If I try to move a message back to the Inbox then all messages 
in the folder show as "cannot find content"  I have not deleted these 
messages but saved them in folders.  Where did they go?  How do I get them 
back?  This has happened since my last backup so I cannot get them from the 
external backup file.  Plus, this sho7uld not happen.  I checked another 
folder, first it worked, then later it went bad as well.  How do I get my 
emails restored, and how do I prevent this crap from happening again?

Try running the various repair functions in the WMUtil program:

You prevent it by upgrading to the more developed replacement program,

See point 3 here (www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3) as some 3rd party program is 
probably causing this issue.  Then run WMUtil on the database to repair it

I have the same problem too and it happens to first my pc and then my laptop 
afetr installing the windows updates for November. 

First it started on the PC and second on the laptop.

Come on Microsoft, this needs escalation as there are countless reports of 
it on mail forums and the WMUtil tools (3rd party) does not even touch the 
problem.

sfc /scannow finds file corruptions in the windows mail folder but cannot 
fix them

Have you heard of the Lemon Law as it pertains to new cars? One=20
of the acceptable remedies is to offer the owner a free replacement.
Microsoft has done the same with Windows Mail. The free=20
replacement is Windows Live Mail:
http://download.live.com/wlmail=20

Windows Mail will become increasingly less tenable as new
Windows updates are released, or as one upgrades to Windows 7.

Mail will not Send/Receive automatically
I have outlook set up to send/receive every minute but it suddenly stopped doing so. Anyone have ideas why? Robin Several. For starters, a one minute polling interval is just nuts. It is difficult to determine why automatic polling is failing when you do not post your mail account type, connection type and polling settings. If automatic polling once worked and now fails, you also need to examine what changes were made to your setup before automatic polling stopped working. In general, here are the reasons automatic polling might fail in Outlook: 1. You have created an unrealistic po...

About Exit and close window.
Group, I have a dialogue base application. There's an Exit button in it. Eachtime when exit the program by clicking Exit button, fun() and OnOK() executed, but if the window is close by clicking (x) on the upper-right coner, fun() will not be executed. How to make this function--fun()--executed when click (x) button on the upper-right coner? Thanks. Rather than calling your fun() from the Exit event handler, call it from the dialog closing event handler, so that no matter how it is shut down, that method is called, and so is fun(). hope that helps.
