Email stuck in Vista Windows Mail

I’m running Vista – and using Windows Mail. ┬áThere is one email which for some reason cannot come through and it is stopping my other emails from coming.

How can I fix this problem?

The first thing is to download and install Windows Vista Service Pack 1. This will fix a bug with Windows Mail that caused this problem.

If the problem continues you can clean Windows Mail up with the WMUtil tool.

Once you’ve installed it, choose “Clear Outbox” and, once that has finished “Repair Database”.

Restart mail and the problem should be fixed.
