For the past few days, upon computer startup, Windows presents a message about compacting of messages. I do not use Windows Mail, and I made no settings or configuration changes for any Windows Mail or other things which would make the Windows Mail compression announcement occur. How do I make this message NOT appear upon Windows Startup? The message also appears if I open Windows Mail and then close it. But as I say, I do NOT use Windows Mail, and I've no plans to begin using it.

The dialog message reads like this:

Title: Windows Mail
Icon: Blue circle with a white "i"
Message: Windows Mail can compact the message store. This may take up to a few minutes.
Buttons: "OK", and "Cancel"
A hyperlink included: Get help from communities

So, can someone tell me how to stop this message from appearing? (Do I really need to give a screen shot?).

System: Windows Vista Home Premium fully updated, Toshiba Satellite P305, Not know processor speed but 2 Duo T5550, 3072 MB RAM, 200 GB Hardrive, Wireless Internet Connection (Broadband).
