I have a few email messages (mainly SPAM selling software) that I cannot delete from my mailbox. If I press delete or try to drag them towards Trash they just refuse to budge. I don't know whether they are doing any harm, or whether they are just sitting there annoying me. I notice that two of them have dates which end in 70, so maybe they will just stay there for another 65 years. Can anyone tell me what is going on?

Hi, and thanks for introducing me to this very useful URL which I didn't know about - but it doesn't work for this problem, as it only flags up messages which have not been opened. Once I have checked my mail for the day, it says 'You have no new messages'. So this message is in my Inbox, but does not appear on Web2mail. Weird, isn't it? In fact there are two of them, and one in my SPAM box, and I just can't get rid of them,

hi m hhhmmmm ;) how about trying to forward the messages to another email, then dont open them just deleat them, also if you can add them to your black list and or report them to your email/or isp as spammmmmmm,uugghh i hate spammm also if you really never want spamm ever, go to www.choicemail.com its free, it works by asking all senders to fill out a short simple form before there email is sent to you, you can also block whole domains ive been using it for about 2 years and i have had 0 spam since hope this helps cheers happy weekend :tazz: keep fighting the good fight
