Recovered Messages Folder

Hello Everyone,

I am currently running OS X 10.6.8 and am having a problem with the mail application.

I was recently trying to send an email message that was apparently too large for the server to handle and was unable to be delivered. The mail application decided to stop responding and I had to force quit the application. This however is not the time in which the problem arose.

I am currently using 2 separate mail accounts one for incoming and outgoing mail message the other I use purely for saving my messages. When taking a message I received later on (approx an hour later) I moved it to a folder in the account I use for storage, and this is when the problem started.

The Recovered Message Folder for the account (the storage account) keeps popping up and populating the same email over and over again. I tried just deleting the folder, but with no success.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can remedy this problem?

Thank you all.
