Hi,

I hope someone here can solve a question put to me by a friend. wrote to me:

"I found a couple of sites with the javacodes etc for them and I copied them into an email. I had to go out so I quickly put the email into my drafts folder to look at later. When I clicked on the drafts folder later on that afternoon, that email has appeared to jam/block the drafts folder and the whole screen fades out then windows shuts the computer down...everytime. I cannot access anything at all in my drafts folder and I cannot delete that message. "

I have never encounterd this before and am powerless to help her. Can anyone suggest a remedy please?


Thanks everyone

Try switching outlook to "offline" mode.
You didn't say what email client you use so I'm guessing it's Windows Mail:

Open Windows Mail
Click File > Work Offline

Hi Pip22,

I am so sorry! I was sure i added that my friend is using Vista/Windows mail but when I edited and corrected some typos I must have deleted a sentence without realising it. Sorry.

Anyway, I have passed on your tip and will reply again as soon as I hear the result,

Thanks again,

Roger
