I recently installed Windows Live Mail 2012. Already have some e-mails that I can't delete or move. When I try, I get a message that "An unknown error has occurred." I can open and read these messages but that's all. Other messages I am able to delete or move. Has anyone else experienced this? OS is Win 7 on a Dell laptop.

Do you have anything in the outbox? If so, delete whatever is there. A friend had an issue similar to this and that corrected it.

Thanks. But no, I don't have anything in the outbox.

I did investigate a little more and found that while I could not move these messages using Move to Folder, I could drag and drop them to the Deleted Items folder. Once there, they could be deleted. Very strange.

Issue isn't really "fixed" but I can work around it, so have marked this thread solved.
