Windows 7: the selected message(s) could not be moved.

04 Mar 2010   #1

the selected message(s) could not be moved.

I'm trying to move messages from Sent, to another folder in WINDOWS MAIL

no can do

I stopped a previous moving of messages, and now it won't let me do anything.

Any tips on how I can solve this?

I've tried messing around with it but nothing works. I can move a few messages at a time, but sometimes not even that.

This may be a lame fix, but you can try to forward the sent messages to your inbox.
