That sort of thing can happen from time to time.
It would be a good move to remove the email settings and passwords from WLM and then set them up again..
With a bit of luck this should help solve the problem.

Here are the steps I would take if this machine was brought into my workshop.
1 check all WLM settings especially POP3 and smtp, remove old email settings and replace with a fresh set
2 Disable anti virus and firewall for a short test.
3 Make sure that your anti virus is not trying to do an additional check for viruses...
4 Remove WLM (uninstall) and then reboot, then reinstall and set up email from scratch..test
5 If still problems then a System Restore back to a time before the trouble started may help(system restore should not affect your data files)
6 If still no joy then go here:
Download and install Thunderbird.... if you are still having problems then it would be wise to post a topic in the Virus and malware removal forum...

Glad you got it fixed, well done
I hope you made the new password good and strong...
a mixture of upper case and lower case letters, with some numbers and special characters like <?!+:~$
If you have around 12 characters like this in total with no discernable pattern, and defintely not any word that could be in any dictionary then you should be good to go....
