Default Cannot delete mail folders


I created a mail folder with a typo and am not able to rename or delete the
folder. I keep getting a message that reads:

"Cannot delete this folder. Right click the folder and
then click Properties to check your permissions for the folder. See the
folder owner or your administrator to change your permissions. The folder is
full".

This is a one user compuiter and I am the administrator. I am unable to
move, rename or delete the folder. This is true with all the folders in my
inbox which I have been able to move and rename until a few days ago.

The folder is full warning suggest you have reached the file limit.
Without any configuration information or details about your message store,
it is hard to tell if that indeed is the case and how to recover.

Sounds like you may have a corrupted Mail profile. Try creating a new one,
add the pst file to it and see if that helps.
