    It will not let me delete certain emails - says an unknown error has
    occured. I can ignore the emails left in my inbox, but it's driving me
    insane. Anyone got ideas?

    You could try uninstalling/reinstalling the program.

    See if you can drag the message to the Deleted folder.
    If so, you can then empty the Deleted folder and that
    should get rid of the message(s).

    That happens to me sometimes too. I leave it for a while and if it is still
    there when I reboot, highlighting and doing a delete often shifts it.

    Happens here too.
    Highlight the message and drag it to the Delete folder.
    Then send Feedback to Microsoft and tell them to correct it.

    Excellent :)
    WLM needs some serious tweaking by Microsoft to get it as user friendly as
    Outlook Express.
