How do I stop/delete Recovered Messages in Windows Mail?
It is very annoying.

I am having this exact same problem, and I just tried running your program,
and it didn't work for me. Is there a way I can just reinstall windows mail,
or is there another fix?

I'm using Vista 32 bit Home Premium. I was unable to delete messages in
my
delete folder and used your fix of Tools/Options/Advanced/Maintance/Store
Folder etc. Now I have a folder for Recovered Messages that posts the
date
and a 6 figure # following the date every time I go to my mail. Example
04-24-200700 12-51-17. Now I can't delete the Recovered Messages folder
and
when I click on the the folder it shows "there are no items to view". The
folder get bigger and bigger with sub folders. I am able to delete the
sub
folders and the daily entrys, but not the Recovered Messages folder.

Default Vista Mail-Recovered Messages; could not import folders from WM to WLM

I installed WLM as suggested by Gary VanderMolen (to avoid getting Recovered
Messages in WM) but could not import the folders (about 40 folders) I
already created with WM. The imported folders are empty and the name folders
are changed.
Could anybody advise me?

Default Vista Mail-Recovered Messages; could not import folders from WM to WLM

Did you explore all the sub-folders under "Storage folders"
to make sure your imported message folders weren't there?

Did you try the manual import from WLM's File/Import menu?

Default (2) Vista Mail-Recovered Messages; could not import folders from WM to WLM

Yes I did, but all are empty. No message folder names I created with WM.
There are so many sub folders but all are empty
Yes I use the Manual Import from the WLM Menu.

Sorry to hear that. Well, it was worth a try, anyway.
Perhaps you can uninstall WLM, and try again, but I don't want
to give you any high hopes that it would be more successful
the second time.

Just ran into this same issue. The WMUtil was worthless. This is why I never stopped backing up all my email files that were important to me with AOL mail. Its all on there site and all I had to do was to upgrade to windows live mail {witch sucks} and transfer the AOL mail folders back to windows live.
AOL service was terrible but the AOL mail has kept right on truckin. I have mail in it from 1999 that was never lost once. I have been through 4 computers. I cant believe windows mail didnt allow us to have complete control over all the folders.

BTW: If you have this issue and go to Microsofts help site and see the techs advise to go into tools,option and delete the folder and copy paste destination link yadda,yadda DO NOT DO IT!!! DONT YOU DARE!!!
You will only lose all the email thats in your folders and you will not fix the issue. It is usless for this issue. Updating to live mail or another mail is the only fix. I have screwed with it all day with no fix discovered..
