    I have several folders for mail and suddenly one of the folders appears to have become corrupt. All the message headers are still present but the message bodies all read "Message cannot be found".

    An internet search reveals that some anti-virus programs can cause this - I am running Windows Security Essentials but can't see how it could have caused this to suddenly occur.

    I checked in the message store and that particular folder does not seem to exist any longer. I do so hope it may be possible to retrieve the messages and any advice will be gladly received. Running Vista (fully up to date) and Windows Mail 6.0.6000.16386.

    Many thanks,
