Windows Mail Inbox corrupt

I'm running Vista; just today all of a sudden after leaving my inbox, which 
was working okay, opening all incoming msgs, I went back to it to open new 
ones and none would open.  Each time I tried to open one it would just start 
building up on my taskbar and not open. I checked Task Manager and first task 
read; Driver Software Installation, and along with that it showed the e-mails 
I had tried to open.I waited to see if the Dvr Software Install was doing 
anything but nothing was occurring, so I ended all tasks.  I further deleted 
all that was in my Delete box.  I also can delete from my Inbox, no problem.  
So at present I have saved all my e-mails into a separate folder, on the 
chance that correcting the current problem, I may lose all opened and 
unopened e-mails.
Would apprec any assist you may be able to provide.
With thanks

Sounds like my problem. Suddenly my Inbox showed that I had nine messages but 
none was viewable. Then I went to Send box and the whole program just shut 
down. Have no idea why any of this happened. Any help in restoring the system 
would be greatly appreciated

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.
