Vista - Windows Mail - POP retrieve problem

  1. Hi, I'm using Vista Windows Mail now as my home e-mail program. I retrieve my messages via POP from a few accounts; one of those accounts is a Yahoo account.

    The problem that I'm having is that after a SendReceive I always get an error message stating that 7 messages were not retrievable from the Yahoo.com account. That error message comes up everytime I SendReceive and it's annoying.

    I think what happened is that when I first retrieved all the messages I had in the Inbox at Yahoo.com -there were aprox 250- probably the retrieve list got out of synch; those famous 7 messages got really retrieved but Windows Mail thinks that they weren't, so now it keeps trying to retrieve them but they aren't in Yahoo.com anymore.

    Do you know how to solve this problem? Is there a way to 'edit' the internal retrieve list in Windows Mail and delete those 7 message-ids so there is no attempt to retrieve them anymore?

    Many thnx

    what is the pop address you are currently using?

    Yahoo pop3 service is: pop.yahoo.com
