File Name Too Long For Recycle Bin - Cannot Delete

Somehow when transferring old emails from one IBM T40 to the My Documents folder on another, identical, IBM T40, much of the body of the text of an old Outllook email message somehow became part of the file name.  XP will not let me delete the file and gives me an error message that the file name is too long for the Recycle Bin ... and it will not let me rename it or move it either.  It is in a subfolder of My Documents and I have tried deleting all of the folders above it as well and I get the same message.

I have been on the phone for several hours with IBM Techinical Support and they have no solution as well, other than to call Microsoft.

I was trying to delete some files that involved several 
pop-up banner ads & windows from interfering with my

the internet, somehow this SPYWARE program began to write 
itself on to my hard drive, so I went into Windows 
Explorer to FIND FILES or FOLDERS to find it & DELETE 
whatever was associated with it!  Well, in the process, I 
ended up sending these files to the RECYCLE BIN on my 
desktop to get rid of them.  However, in the process of 
DELETING them, I also deleted a file 'Inbox' that I 
thought was part of the problem.  I pray there is a way to 
retrieve these emails I accidentally deleted!!!  PLEASE 
HELP ME!  These were very important emails regarding 
employment!  Thank you.
