    Windows live mail Task box won't close

    I have set up a new e-mail address and am having a problem sending e-mails. Originally I was having problems connecting to my outgoing mail server but now the Task box appears to be locked open with the status message "executing".

    Even if I shut down Live Mail when I restart the program I just get this same box and am unable to send or retrieve e-mails from any of my e-mail accounts.

    Any idea what the problem is and how I can shut this down

    Thanks in advance

    goto: C:\Users\{Your current user}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\Outbox\ to see if you have a .eml file there and delete it.
