    Can't delete mail (Outlook2000 WinXP SP1)

    When I try to delete mail from inbox (Outlook) I get a message that the messaging interface has returned an unknown error and if it persists to reboot -- which I have done several times without success. Any suggestions? Anyone? Anyone? Could it be related to one of the new security patches that Windows recommended I install?

    Please ignor this cry for help. My delete box was full and would not accept more deletions. Sorry -- I should have known. Maybe I should turn auto achieve back "on?"

    Just as a matter of interest, how many mails were in your deleted items?
    (I tend to clear mine every few days - I only keep it as a safety net.)
    I use sub-folders for 'archiving' anything I don't want in my Inbox but do not want to delete forever.

    I just ran into the same problem, and am delighted that the original inquiry was posted before the problem was discovered. I had no idea what to do. I rebooted. I shut down. I ran detect and repair. My deleted items folder was at 12,603 when I started getting the message.
