Windows 7: Overflowing Junk Mail folder

Overflowing Junk Mail folder

Good day all!

Just a quick question, if I may. I am using Outlook 2010 and for some reason my Junk Mail folder looks as follows:

Name:  Junk Mail.GIF
Views: 21
Size:  48.0 KB

Do any of you have an idea as to why and how I can sort this out? There are obviously not that many, or indeed any, mails in the folder and apart from the fact that it looks as though I am the worlds greatest recipient of junk mail, it has no effect on the operation of Outlook.

Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

I am unsure, are you concerned about the number? I assume you have right to right click and empty.

Sorry for the delay in replying.

That, zigzag, is my problem. The folder is empty. I can delete junk mails without a problem but can't get rid of the 40 billion odd figure that it is listed as containing.

Any ideas?
