Photo borders in Live Mail

Q: Photo borders in Live Mail


When I insert a photo into a message it includes a dark drop border around the right hand edge. Is there a way I can disable this feature? I'm using Windows Live Mail 2011 on a Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit system. Thanks up front.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I'm having a problem with windows live mail.. i have a business in which i need to send photo emails using the album function but,unfortunately for some unknown reason i am not able to send photo emails anymore,

I am using windows live mail,when i try to send an album it becomes stuck on the last photo and displays that it is publishing album,but never actually achieves completion.

I am aware that it is publishing to one drive,i believe the receipients are viewing the album in the album format on one drive,i can log on to one drive,though this account is under a different email .i have no problem in sending and receiving normal emails.

I have tried disabling anti virus and still it wont send,and currently using windows 8.

My wife has Win 8.1 on her desktop and when my daughter sends her an email with multiple photos attached from her iPhone, Live Mail will display all thumbnails, but when clicking on any of them, the same photo shows up in photo viewer. also, slide show only shows one photo. the thumbnails display photo name and photo size but only one can be viewed. The same email sent to my gmail account works correctly. If I forward the email to wife's Live Mail, same problem. Any ideas? New grandson and lots of pics...

I have been struggling to insert a photo as part of a signature and was trying out various options when I found I could no longer try different pictures because the Single Photo option was suddenly missing from the top menu.

The Photo Album option still exists but where has the Single Photo option gone?

I need this because I insert a lot of photos in my emails.....

Please help somebody......

Used Epson Easy Print on last computer which was perfect!

I've got myself a real pickle. First of all, does this look like the correct location [thread] for the Pictures Files;

The problem I have, is that none of my Pictures Files will open in Windows Live Photo Gallery, or even Windows Photo Gallery for that matter, because, as I am told by these windows, 'a' Folder is hidden. Here's the info I get;

How the heck do I get myself out of this mess? All my Picture Files are there, it's just that I cannot access WL Photo Gallery, to do any editing etc.

I also suspect that something isn't quite right with my Folder set-up here;

Any advice appreciated to assist me to clean-up my act

I recently just upgraded my laptop and I am so upset to see that Windows 10 does not have the Windows Photo Viewer or the Windows Live Photo Gallery- these two programs offer ways of printing photos (such as printing 2 4x6 or 5x7 pics on one page) and simple/quick one click enhancement features that I cannot find anywhere else! The Microsoft photo viewer that came with the PC is useless - it has no options or features! Help please or suggestions!!!!

A:Any way to get the Windows Photo Viewer & Windows Live Photo Gallery?

Yeah the default app isn't great. The old photo viewer can be enabled if you did an upgrade from 7 I believe. I think those with a clean install of 10 are bang out of luck though. I'm sure Brink posted a tutorial on how to do it but I'll need to dig around

I am a relatively new Vista user and am overwhelmed by the overlapping of programs....I want to keep all of my videos and photos within one program on my computer. I seem to soetimes upload to Windows Live Photo, and sometime to Windows Photo. Is there a way to combine all files on these 2 programs and then delete the unused program? I like the visual format of Live Photo, so that is the one I prefer to keep. Thanks in advance for the tips.

A:Combine files in Windows Photo with Windows Live Photo?

I'm not quite familiar with either one... but I'm sure all your pics are in the Pictures folder and all your videos are in the Videos. So you can just import...

Another alternative is Picasa (if you want one). It automatically scans your whole computer for pics and videos, so it wouldn't be a hassle to find them. It is centrallized in one location.

This is a slightly annoying problem. I've disabled Windows Live Messenger from starting up, both through Messenger's options and through MSCONFIG. The program doesn't start when Windows starts. But when I log on to Windows Live Mail through a web browser, Messenger starts up on it's own. I cannot figure out a way to disable this. I've looked through Live Mail options and can't find anything to denote starting up the program. I only use my Live Mail account for junk mail, but need to check it occasionally and would prefer it if Messenger didn't start up on it's own.

I also find this link: how to export mail,calendar contact in outlook to windows live mail clientWith the "Outlook Conversion Application" solution but is this possible on different computers and has WLM an import function?

Don I might be way off track here mate but was the Outlook account the same email address as you have set up in WLM?

Just a thought you might try adding an account to WLM using the old address and password. I did this with my old account from my service provider then went to a Hotmail account.
Now admittedly it was still within WLM but worth a try.

What I will do is try and add my work account (Outlook) to my WLM and see if it works.

PS It added the account but I have to get the POP and STMP settings right first.

A:Export E-mail contacts from Windows Live Mail to Hotmail

Windows Live Mail is Hotmail, with a new look. So I am confused as to what you are trying to do.
It sounds like you created a whole new name for Windows Live Mail... you didn't need to do that.

If you just open Windows Live Mail and logon as the HotMail name you will see all of the contacts.

What email program is on your old machine?

If you're going to be trying stuff to get your old mail on your new Win7, be sure to make a backup of all your old mail folders before you do, and put the backup file where you'll know where it is. Probably on your old machine desktop, wouldn't hurt to put another copy on your Win7 desktop as well. Loss hurts!

Questions... are you able to do an "Import" from X, (X being the location of your old (or previous) emails?

Are you able to do an "Export" of the same emails to a file?

Does Windows Live Mail 2011 have the option to "Import emails From" or "Export" to?

One thing you can do is: make a COPY of your old "Inbox" folder and place it, (the "COPY"), on your current Win 7 desktop. Have Windows Live Mail copy it from there. If when you do, it does not then contain items such as "attachments, etc., you could simply delete all the emails in it and try something else. Your original (old emails) are still where they always were, on your other machine or external drive.

My machine is a dual/boot Windows Vista & Windows7. For email I use Windows Mail on both. I know it is oft said that Windows Mail won't work on Win7, trust me it works just fine. The transfer of all my email folders from Vista to Win7 was a painless, simple, walk in the park. Everything transferred, folders and all, nothing was lost.

I'm not into Windows Live essential anything, mail included, and that's why I installed Windows Mail on Win7.

It has always been my belief that those who use Windows Mail or Windows Live mail and have it set to show the preview pane, will allow a potential virus to spread .Once you download and have it in the preview pane, it is the same as opening the email. Until I find out that this is not true, I have eliminated the preview pane, which can be done from the View Tab.

I have done the same thing in Windows Live Mail, although mainly just because I find it annoying. If I need to read the email, I'll open it, I don't need it on display while I'm sorting old messages.

I'm pretty sure that you're right about viruses being able to spread through the preview pane. But doesn't Outlook also have this "feature"?

I would like to use Word 2007 Mail Merge to compose and send email messages. My email client is Windows Live Mail. I do not have Outlook. I do not need to access my WLM Contacts list. The email addresses I want to send messages to are in a column of the Word table that I am using as the Mail Merge data source. I have gone through all of the steps of a Mail Merge, including writing the email message, inserting data fields into it, and selecting recipients. The last step is to finish, merge, and send messages. I click on that step and nothing happens - no error message appears but no messages are sent. Any advice? It's possible this can't be done, but I am hoping it can.

Our old XP machine harddrive has just died! This has OE6 on it... I'm now on a Win7 PC with Windows Live Mail... I am trying to find an import option to bring in all my old backed-up folders in the dbx format without any luck.

Any suggestions? I did try Thunderbird then gave up!!

A:Importing Outlook Express mail into Windows Live Mail

I did it a long time ago and cannot recall my method.

If you pound google, you will find numerous methods. If one doesn't work, move on to the next. I do recall that it is a hit and miss affair, so be prepared to experiment.

Primary advice: be sure you have multiple copies of your DBX folders and keep one copy of each folder safe and unaltered. Try the various methods you discover on a copy of the DBX folders.

I have used the same email programme on this computer for 2 years with no problems. For the last week or so my emails have taken forever to download, half and hour or more.

There is plenty of capacity on my webmail account which is where messages are downloaded from, and according to the little information box WLW is 'aware' of the messages to be downloaded, and list 'downloading 17 messages' or whatever number; no error message appears, it just takes a-g-e-s. Any suggestions on how to fix it?

Please no suggestions to download some other better mail programme - I'm happy with this one when it is working!

Many thanks

A:Windows Live Mail suddenly downloading mail very slowly

I would first try the simple thing of resetting(power cycle) your network equipment. Unplug the power cord(s) to both the modem and router or just the one cord if its a combo modem/router and wait about a minute or so; then plug the modem back in first and let that boot; then plug the router back in and let that boot. Try this out and see what happens. If it doesnt resolve the issue post back and we can take it from there.

Windows Live Mail 2011 - recipients not receiving mail
About 10% of my e-mail recipients are not receiving my e-mail and I do not receive non-delivery notices. Makes no difference if I select their address from my e-mail list or select respond to one of their incoming messages. This problem has plagued me for many months. I changed from Windows Mail to Windows Live Mail 2011 with no results.

Computer is HP Model m9517c, AMD Phenom 9550 Quad-Core processor, Vista 64 bit operating system with Service Pack 2, 8 GB RAM. Am using Windows Live Mail 2011 with Comcast Internet Service.

The people not receiving my e-mail are using Verizon, Earthlink and probably others. Two of my Verizon accounts changed over to gmail and email went through.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

A:Windows Live Mail 2011 - recipients not receiving mail

Of course, I cannot offer a definitive answer, but merely give the most like first.
Lets say you are sending from and you send to Yahoo may have been receiving a lot of spam from Verizon and do not allow their email. Tell your friends to put you on the safe list and see if that helps.
Another possibility, is that you may have someone else's address. It may be very close to a correct address with only a small difference. YOu would not get an non delivered notice.

After a clean install of Windows 7, I installed Office 2007. I also installed Windows Live Mail not to use it as an e-mail client, but only as an intermediate to import mail accounts. Therefore, I imported all my many e-mail accounts to Windows Live Mail from previously saved IAF files. Until here all worked as expected. The problem is that now, when I try to "Import internet mail account settings" from Windows Live Mail to Outlook it just answers "No internet accounts were found to import". How come?

Can someone please instruct me on how to overcome this problem, please?

I use Windows Live Mail and have e mail address [email protected]
Someone mentioned wlm would stop after the end of June.
I don't use wlm to connect to outlook.
So, after 30th June will I be still able to use wlm and use my [email protected] email?
Even if the answer to the above is yes do we think the writing is on the wall for wlm anyway?

A:Windows Live Mail and question

I have been using WLM since its introduction, and I plan to keep on using it.
I have a pop account and a Hotmail account configured in it.
If something goes awry on my Hotmail account, I can always access my Hotmail account via my web browser. Does not bother me.

Writing on the wall ?
Maybe. There are always other email clients capable to do the same job.
I'll never use the Mail app. It sucks.
Some members recommend eM Client.

So I understand that the photo app gets my photos from my picture library and then just randomly scrolls through them, however there is a specific folder of photo that I don't want to be shown. Is there a way to make it so it doesn't show that folder when flicking through the various photo I have or do I have to move the folder to another location?

You might try the following trick on Windows Live Essentials 2011.

1. Download the web-setup file "wlsetup-web.exe"
2.When it starts select the second option
"Choose the programs you want to install"
3. Here is very important part: DO NOT CLICK install button!
You need to wait here. It depends on your internet speed.
For 4.3 Mbps it took 15 minutes wait.
4. Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Windows Live\.cache
You will find a bunch of folders where with random names.
You can stop waiting when this folder will get to about 259 MB.
And new folders will stop appearing.
5. Find the following files and backup them in separate folder:

Folder containing:

Another folder with

And other single files

IGNORE the rest of the files - those are the other components of Live Essentials.

6. Cancel installation of Windows Live Essentials 2011.

7. GO back to the rescued files and install all of mentioned above one by one (well, except dx folders, you just start dxsetup in that case)

Since you know where your emails are it should be simple. WLM has an "Import" feature for emails and for contacts. First make the menu bar visible in WLM. Then use File/Import Messages to start the import messages wizard. You will have to browse to the location of your Windows Mail folder on the other drive. Make sure you browse to the other drive since there is a similar folder of the same name on Windows 7 which is not relevant.

The trick is to get your email messages into Outlook Express (OE on XP) or Windows Mail (on Vista) before you can import into Windows Live mail. Then the import can be done directly.

There isn't any way currently to import mail directly from Outlook to Windows Live Mail so you have to do it indirectly BEFORE installing Windows 7.

1) even if you don't use Outlook Express (XP) or Windows Mail (VISTA) you need to have them running on the same machine as your copy of OUTLOOK.

2) create (if you haven't already) email accounts in OE or Windows mail identical to those you have in Outlook.

3) Now import your messages from Outlook into OE or Windows Mail.

4) Change the Store Identity in OE or Windows mail to a disk that your W7 can read (do this under Maintenance - data storage locations in OE or Windows Mail).
Doing this saves you having to install Live Mail on Vista or XP

5) Logon to your W7 system and install Windows Live mail.

6) Set up your email accounts

7) File ==> import==>messages

8) Chose Outlook express or Windows mail depending on step 3)

9) Browse to the directory where you stored the messages in step 4)

10) Job done.

A bit fiddly but obviously MS don't want to make it easy for people to switch from Outlook

Note also the "Send and Receive" function is calles "SYNC" in Windows Live mail -- confusing but there it is.

If you also installed Windows Messenger you can prevent it from starting automatically at startup by going to the Orb ==>acessories==>run. type msconfig and unclick windows messenger in the start up box.

There doesn't appear to be ANY method of importing mail directly from Outlook 2003/2007


Hi Jimbo,
I am purchasing a new pc with Windows7. I read your thread above, and have one problem and one question:
Problem: When trying to save the messages from OE into a CD-RW or pen drive, following the procedure of your step Nr. 4 above, Outlook does not allow it. The OK button is not activated.
Question: Is there a procedure available to import the Address book (Contacts) from Outlook into Windows7 mail?
Thank you

When I send an e TO myself with BCC to a list of recipients my copy of the Sent Mail doesn't show the BCC list?
Until recently I used to receive two copies of Sent Mail, the one not showing the BCC list the other showing the BCC list.
Any advice please?

A:Can't view bcc recipients in Windows Live Mail sent mail

In case any of the 61 readers of the original question are wondering...

....the answer is:-
The copy in the sent folder will show all the BCC recipients.
The copy arriving in the inbox will not show the BCC recipients as they
BCC'd. Each BCC recipient will only see that the message was sent to the sender
and that recipient.

I have many old pictures of my seven children.  I want to scan the pictures into the computer and put them on discs for each of the children.
When I tag their names will the program put a copy of that picture in the folder with the corresponding name?  Is there another
procedure I should follow to accomplish this.  Any help you can give me is appreciated.

I was importing photos from my IPAD into windows live photo gallery. I have windows 7 operating system. There were 2 issues that arised. The first one was that the dates on the folder were in the american format, which is very confusing when you work purley off dates. If you click on the actual photo it will give you the australian format of the date, but the folder it is in has the american date format. I hope someone can help me with this issue. The second issue that arised was that when I went to import photos again into windows live photo gallery it reimported a group of photos that had already been imported. So I thought that was strange so I deleted the copies and clicked import all new photos and it did it again. I have 300 photos on the ipad and these 26 photos keep reimporting. I hope someone can help me thank you very much.

Do you know why I can't email photos from the photo gallery? I have Windows 7 and downloaded the photo gallery for windows live, but I can't email the photos from the photo gallery like I used to do. Is there something else I need to do? I have my hotmail email account as the default to send emails from, but can't seem to find the problem. I don't have Outlook on this computer. Could that have something to do with it? Please help.

Hi there,

I'm having a issue with Windows Live Photo Gallery.
When I boot the program it immediatly comes up with a "Windows Live Photo Gallery Repair has stopped working", shortly afterwards that message dissapears and the program can be used normally.

After I close the program, the message "Windows Live Photo Gallery has stopped working" pops up , and keeps popping up very frequently for about 10-30 minutes after closing the program.

I already tried reinstalling the program completely but to no avail, the same issue repeats itself.

Are there any suggestions how to solve this issue?

Thanks in advance.

gameleon, I am having the same problem as you. I am surprised no one has answered you query. However, yesterday when 'exploring' the photo gallery on Vista, I began to realise that the Photo Gallery, and the 'Live Photo Gallery' are 2 different things. I will be doing a bit more digging here on this forum to see what else I can find out. As far as I can make out both versions can be used by me, but after going into Live Gallery, and looking at a photo, similar messages as to what you received pop up, ' has stopped working' 'do you want to send information for repair'., etc, etc.

My problem is with windows live photo gallery. Every time I try to crop a photo and try to save it, the entire picture disappears and I do not have any idea where it has gone. It's like it has been deleted.

I don't use Windows Live PG, and now I see why. The process is different than any editing program I've ever seen, and completely unfriendly as far as I can see.
From Help:
"To save the changes to your photo, click Back to gallery."
This seems to save a new file with the same name,and destroys the original.
You can fix that with File/Revert.
You can also rt-click the edited photo and "Open With" your favorite editor and save in the usual manner.
Even better, get Picasa which makes this process much simpler and also auto-saves a copy of the original.

how to delete files from live gallery and still retain original file in its original position
thank you

I like the live tile on the native photo app despite not being able to control what pics show and it only scrolling through 5 at any given time. However do people find the live tile buggy? It will be happily working away but then I will notice the tile gets stuck on a single pic no longer scrolling. Switching live tile off and back on generally kicks it back into life again. It's the only live tile that seems prone to this behaviour as all others behave themselves. I've noticed this has happened through all builds of Windows 10 and numerous photo app updates. It's very random as to when it occurs too

When editing a picture in Windows live photo gallery the picture disappears off the computer when closing the application but the file name seems to be retained because if you try to put another pic with the same file name in the folder it says that file name already exists, I have been using Windows live photo gallery regularly with no problems for ages and have tried to sort this out myself but have run out of ideas, I also noticed when clicking on the libraries icon in the task bar the pictures folder had myteriously moved into the video library as a sub folder, I did a restore back to when I knew everything was OK but this did not rectify the problem.

Do you by chance use Mcafee anti-virus? If you do try turning off Real Time Scanning.
Windows 7 Library folders are not being displayed
EnvironmentAffected Suites:
Total Protection 2011
Internet Security Suite 2011
AntiVirus Plus 2011

Affected Products:

Affected Operating Systems:
Windows 7

NOTE: If you are unsure what version of the McAfee Security software you have installed, please see article TS101107.
SummaryWindows 7 contains a new feature concept called the Library, which allows you to group similar types of documents and media from several physical folders into one virtual Library.

When a new user is created, during or after the computer setup, the user?s unique Library is created with four default Libraries:
When you open Windows Explorer, or save a file, that file's attributes could be changed to hidden.
ProblemFunctions in the 2011 McAfee VirusScan could cause these four default Libraries to be hidden, making it difficult to find files collected into these Libraries. The Libraries do exist, but they have a ?hidden? attribute which prevents them from being displayed in Windows Explorer.

SolutionMcAfee will release an update to VirusScan which will change the way these file attributes are set and eliminate this issue.

WorkaroundUntil the planned update is released, use the following procedure to work around this issue.

I really don't know what happened. I went to access Windows Live Photo Gallery (WLPG) and got the message that it has stopped working. I ran sfc \scannow and it states that corrupt files were found and not all were able to be fixed, but I don't know how to open that log to see what it says.

I tried doing a System Restore back to the earliest date I had and that didn't work.

Can someone please help me with this?
