Thanks reply - I did registry backup to ensure all settings stay in place, and I skipped messages backup since it is not that important for me, they are additionally stored elsewhere so I can always redownload them.
I don't think you really understand the entire importance of this.. but it's all explained in great detail in the Backup/Restore write-up.
Ok, no backup, no partition, what do I do? Wipe all WM data fm machine and try install anew?
At this point after you've already ran the tutorial with what you have, and if you have no backup of the message store folder, and you're having the problems you explain, you'll have to do everything the long way around fo fix it.
..if you don't have a backup to do it, then to remove the corruption, you simply close WinMail, and 'Delete' the folder
(If you haven't already you then also merge the good backup reg that you made while it was all setup and fully working:
..so now when you start WinMail since you don't have a message store backup in it's place, it will instead create a brand new one with all stock blank folders, blank accounts, etc, and it'll create blank new account #'s ...and then you proceed the long way around to set it all up again..
Please make a message store backup next time ..trust me on this
All the best...
