    Hi all I'm new here...but that's not the subject here my problem: ever since my mom sent me a "BIG" e-mail message from her Yahoo Mail every time I try to read it my Wii'll freeze, here's a video so you can see my delima:



    yeah, somebody sent me a comment saying that SaveMii could well...save me, but the application he suggested only deletes corrupt "banners" not Wii-mail Messages, so if anyone could help me with some sort of homebrew application that deletes wii messages that would be greatly appreciated! You'll probably become my best friend after this...lulz

    Yeah back up your saves using GeckoOS and format your Wii. That should be your best bet...

    This happened to me a while back, except my wii would freeze at the menu as soon as I turned it on (it was trying to recive the message). I had to boot into maintenance mode to reformat it! I found out that the message was from nintendo... [​IMG] /facepalm

    You can formate with maintenance mode.
    I had also delete the mail (do it fastly) but it didn't fix the problem [​IMG]

    You could certainly just delete the offending files. But given an application which lets you delete random files, there's also a lot of bad stuff you could delete.

    But, yeah. The System Menu "Format" option should work.

    Ha, this is has just happened to me. The only thing you can do is format. Boot in Maintenance Mode and back up everything,
