    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    It is possible that Mail.MsMessageStore file was corrupted. Please follow the steps below on how to repair the file:

      • Which is the email client that you use to access your emails? Windows live mail or through mail app? Or do you access email via your Web Browser?

      • If you use email client, what type of email account? (i.e. POP, IMAP, Exchange or other...)

    I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps if you access it through Windows live mail.

    1. Restart the computer (this is to ensure that Live Mail is fully shut down, and that none of it's components are in use when the computer starts)

    2. Press Windows+ X and select command prompt(Admin).

    3. Copy the following (press Ctrl+C):

    esentutl.exe -d "%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\Mail.MSMessageStore"

    Note: the "" are necessary

    4. Right click in the command prompt Window, and select Paste, so you now see the following:

    C:\Windows\system32>esentutl.exe -d "%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\Mail.MSMessageStore"

    5. Press enter. esentutl will now defragment the Live Mail database file

    6. Once done, you can close the command prompt, and restart the PC again

    If the issue persists, please notify us.
