windows live mail error 0x8e5e0713

This is the error I got in one of my client computers:

The error “Windows Live Mail could not be started. Closing Windows Live Mail. Your calendar contains corrupt data that is forcing Windows Live Mail to close. (0x8E5E0713)”
after trying like the solution on error about contact by deleting contact folder (in this I delete the calendar folder), is still not working. So I search on the net and the solution is actually simple, it is because the user access is not allowing the user to access the folder.
So I try that by opening the windows live mail folder in its default folder (in XP it is in c:document and settings[user folder]local settingsmicrosoftwindows live mailcalendar), and it actually shows that the current user access on the folder is blank (no check mark on user access). So obviously I give modify access to the users on windows live mail folder, then to make sure the rule applied to all the sub folders in the windows live mail folder. including the calendars folder, I check the “Replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects” and clicking apply button.
Here the windows automatically convert the folders and subfolders and files inside the Windows Live Mail to have similar inherited access. This could take some while because Windows Live Mail’s emails are in singles instead of several big files like in Outlook Express, so it was being in thousands in my case.
Also as a warning if you don’t have harddisk free space (hdd is full), you cannot change the user access since it is required for windows to edit user environment file, wich is a no-can-do if no space left for the conversion.
