I am using Windows Mail on Windows Vista Professional.

The first time I open windows mail it is slow and slightly unstable but generally works ok.

When I close the application it always requires me to "end task" or force it to close down.

However, every time I open up Windows Mail after that it opens up fine and closes fine by using the red X or file and close commands.

Each time I start up and log into my computer this happens

Check how big your e-mail store / mail store, if it is big chances are you are running out of recources on your PC. Open up tast manager and monitor your resource allocation when you open your mail.

The resource is 450MB

Your probably right and what isnt helping is Vista has always been poor performance wise

An upgrade to Windows 7 is on the cards
