HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.
Close the windows live mail i mean exit and then go to Hotmail on the web using the internet explorer and clean out all the folders. If you want to save any messages, create a new folderand move those messages to the new folder. Empty the thrash also.Remember that when you restart windows live mail, it will try to sync with the newfolder status on the web, so be sure you have moved any important email to a storage folder and now it should work.
