If you can access the account at Verizon itself, I suggest that you check the config info for the Verizon account within Live Mail.

If McAfee is new or recently updated, its firewall may be the culprit.

A:Solved: Troubles transferring Windows Mail Vista to Win7 Windows Live Mail 2011

I get a little nauseous just thinking about Windows Live Mail 2011, much less expending effort to use it, but I would try installing it on the Vista and see if it has the option right up front of importing stuff from Windows Mail. If it does, and happens to work correctly, then all you would have to do is find its files and copy them over.

By the way, are you putting on airs with "Addias" transfer? We plebeians just used "sneaker net."

i have windows 7 and recently began using the upgraded windows live mail 2011 - after a hard drive crash i had to reinstall everything - however i haven't been able to transfer all of my e-mails over from my backup computer or external hard drive - after waiting a few hours it comes back and asks me if i want to copy all files without their properties which effectively means i cannot transfer those e-mails with the contents - can anyone please tell me how to fix this?

A:windows live mail 2011 - e-mail properties won't transfer

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.

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.

That thing is just a mess and full of complete clutter in my personal opinion. I've successfully uninstalled the thing but I don't want to just go into my user profile and start deleting folders unless I know what I'm doing. It leaves a lot behind after the uninstall throughout the computer.

I managed to use that zapmessenger thingamabob to get rid of messenger but the Windows Live Mail is still floating around all over the place.

Even any info on folders that some may know of for sure that can go would be helpful.

That Mail program is a mess. Cluttered, spell checker don't work, it keeps replacing email that i attempted to delete...

Hello Everyone,

This is my first post, and I'm a newbie, so please forgive the non-technical lingo.

I have a Dell Studio Laptop 1558 running Windows 7, and it came with the new 2011 Windows 7 Live Mail. This is supposed to be the newer, fancier version of Windows Live Mail. Unfortunately, I don't like this newer version, and want the older version. Actually I'd rather have OE back, but know that's not possible.

This version has "Quick Access" which I hate. In the old OE there was one "Inbox", one "Sent", one "Draft" etc, etc. and all I had to do was click the "Inbox" and see all my messages at one time. So simple.

Can I get rid of QA or at least rig it to show all my email at once, and not separate them?

Thank you for any help you can offer.

I have a friend who is running Windows 7 right now and he uses Windows Live Mail 2011. He accesses it via a desktop shortcut icon. He had upgraded to Windows 10, but he didn't like it, so he rolled back to 7.

If he does install Windows 10 again, would he still be able to access Windows Live Mail through a desktop icon the way he does now? His current email configuration allows synchronization of his email between a Windows PC as well as mobile apple devices, so I am reluctant to 'help' him make any changes which might change that configuration.

Each component of WLE, can be installed separately. If you want to test a piece of software, make a system restore point, first. You can go back to the way everything was before the install.
You can uninstall the software, too. In my opinion System Restore is a better way to go, you remove everything; even registry pieces usually left behind.

While attempting to compress and email some photos I have seen some bizarre behaviour from WLM2011.

If I select a few pix and elect to send them to an email recipient, instead of simply asking if I want them made smaller, WLM2011 tries to invoke the use of Skydrive and then wants me to log on to a Hotmail account.

Now every time I open WLM2011 it also opens the Hotmail login popup.

Surely there is an easier way to compress a few pictures so I can email them?

I have used the Zip function which works quite simply, is this the answer, please?

I doubt if uninstalling and reinstalling WLM would cause a loss of email, but to be safe you could export them to a safe place for backup. Before that I'd see if the problem is fixed with a repair install via Programs and Features. Just select Windows Live Essentials and choose "repair". All the components of the Essentials package that were installed will be repaired. (No need to back up for a "repair".)

I don't think it's a limit in WLM.
In WLM 2012 I just sent and received an Email with a 2,886 KB .rtf attachment.
No problems and file was received as a single file in Outlook 2010 and WLM 2012.

You may want to check with the ISPs for the sending and receiving.

I am using Windows Live Mail 2011 to receive emails from my website email address, gmail account, and live account. Problem is that often with Gmail emails when I delete the items fast or navigate it says to me time out wait 60 seconds, sometime asks me for password and sometime get stuck. This happens often with gmail settings!! Any fix for this bug? or how should I fix the problem

A:Problem with Windows Live Mail 2011

I've seen a type of "wait 60 seconds" in connection with a message stating that "the server has not responded". It seems to be a common problem for me and I'm not even using a gmail or a live account. This has been happening since at least 2007 with Vista's Windows Mail, maybe longer back in the Outlook Express days. I usually just cancel out of the message and start the process again (whether it's deleting or downloading mail from the server). It usually works right away on the second try.

Hi everybody.I recently downloaded windows live 2011 and I have a big issue.When I try to send an email through windows live mail I can't change the font.I can't even add emoticons.When I try to click on it,it's whited out and won't let me do anything.It does the same thing as the microsoft word trial when it runs out.It does not say the selection is locked though.What can I do?

A:Problem with windows live mail 2011

hi Tyler922, and welcome to sevenforums

you need to change to rich text (html) mode when writing a new message - the default plain text doesn't allow graphics, links or fancy fonts.

you'll need to change your options if you don't want to have to do this each time you write a mail:

click on blue rectangle in top-left hand corner >> options >> mail >> send >> change mail sending format to HTML

I am running Widows 7 Home Premium. Recently my live mail disconnects itself from the server after being inactive for a short while. I have to restart my computer to get it to connect back. Read several threads and followed their advise on how to repair, with one problem. When I go to uninstall/change, it does not give an option to repair, only uninstall. It says there is a problem with one or more of the Live Windows live programs, to fix try uninstalling and reinstalling Windows Live. I do not want to totally uninstall Live because of the chance of losing all my contacts and emails that are already saved.

There was an error when attempting to connect to the Windows Live Calendar service. If the error persists, check to see if there's an upgrade of Windows Live Mail available or contact a service representative.

Some how I doubt that is the answer but, since I can't find an "upgrade",Will installing a new full version lose existing settings, server data or messages?

I hope this is in the right forum.

I have just got my new W7 system running, thanks to those who helped by answering my many questions. The only issues I am experiencing so far are with Windows Live Mail 2011.

I have managed to import all my existing e-mails from Windows Live mail on my XP system, but I can't move them from the storage folders to the inbox. Is this normal or have I missed something? Also I can't get WLM2011 to remember my Font preferences or to empty the Deleted Items folder when I exit. Previous iterations of WLM had a Tools tab but I can't find a similar function on the 2011 version.

Any help would be appreciated.


A:[SOLVED] Windows Live Mail 2011

Hi -

WLM 2011 info - Import your e-mail, contacts, and calendar into Windows Live Mail

The new 2011 installation should download emails from your previous WLM installation assuming same email accounts are used.

In Windows 7, WLM folder = C:\Users\PalmDesert\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail

Try and copy the WLM folder from XP to the Windows 7 WLM folder.

I use the program for my email and my class folders for school. I go to school online so everything goes through a newsgroup. Prior to updating to the conversations would stay in a single thread. If a thread was started under the title if "Hi" regardless of the title of any message posted under that thread it would stay together. I have noticed that if the title of any message changes then a new thread is started in the newsgroup folder. So let's say under "Hi" there are 3 responses then someone decides to respond in the thread but change the message title to "bye" the "bye" message would start a whole new thread. I really hope that makes sense it is not that easy to describe. I am hoping there is a way to fix this as tracking the conversations within their context is difficult if I don't know what conversation the message was originally attached to. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A:edit spellcheck in windows live mail 2011

Hi jane1,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

I haven't added any words to mine (I have the program installed as well though only for newsgroups and use Outlook for mail, so I haven't used it much yet), so I couldn't test this solution fully, but I believe it should work and is what you are looking for:

Go to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Mail\Proof\langxxxx.lex

It is a plain text file, so right click on it and click Open With and select Notepad. It should be your custom directory and you should be able to edit it like any notepad document. Be sure to save it as the same name (and extension) and in the same place as it was when you are done.

The \AppData folder is normally hidden. If you can't see it, go to Start / Control Panel / Folder Options / View and click the button to show hidden files and folders, uncheck the box to hide system files and folders, and uncheck the box to hide extensions of known file types. Then go back and you should be able to now see it (it will be slightly faded to indicate it is "hidden").

I hope this helps. If not, post back and I'll add some words to my custom dictionary and test the procedure more thoroughly. If I too have problems, I'll do further research to try to find an answer (it MUST be possible).

Good luck!

A:Windows live mail 2011 high cpu usage

Regarding last question.
Alt+tab meant to be used with windows, not tabs. To disable or intercept Alt+tab hacking is required at pretty low level. Alt+Tab works even when other shortcuts do not (Ctrl+Alt+Del, Ctrl+Shift+Esc).

So, as alternative I would suggest using other shortcuts to switch between opened IE9 tabs.

Let's say your IE9 is pinned to the taskbar and it has the first position, right next to Start orb.
Then you can switch between tabs simply doing Win+1.
If IE9 is pinned on the third place use Win+3,
fourth - Win+4

Suddenly I can't send new email nor reply to received emails in Windows Live Mail (WLM) 2011. I have no problem receiving emails, but when I try to send or reply I get the error message 'A problem has occurred. Please try again." Trying again and again does not help.

Any ideas on how to solve this problem would be appreciated. I have saved and organized many emails over the years and I don't want to lose them by doing a reinstall of WLM. And I'm not sure where/how to back up all these emails.

What if I did a restore to some point just before this recent WLM problem occurred........would that perhaps solve my problem and retain all my emails and associated folders?

I'm hearing all sorts of things about it like all our emails are being stored somewhere in a MS server as well as in our computer.

For example, if I use a gmail account with WLM 2011, when it loads all my emails from the gmail account into WLM 2011, does it also store a copy of those emails in an MS Server somewhere in the world, or is that mail only stored on my computer like thunderbird or outlook?

I think the short answer is NO! But there is a caveat. If you do not link your WLM 2011 (the desktop client) to Windows Live Mail (Hotmail) there MS does not and cannot upload your emails to the cloud (on their servers). Thus, for example, if you use Gmail and use WLM 2011 (the email client) to access it, then Windows does not store it on their servers (depending on how you set up Gmail and WLM 2011), Google does.

Essentially, WLM 2011 stores your mails on your machine.

I purchaesd a Toshiba laptop 3 days ago and getting my feet wet with Windows 7. I'm going nuts trying to install the menu bar in Live Mail. The 3 small icons on the upper right are missing and I've trid every Alt keyboard command possible. I spent 14 straight hours yesterday, slept for 2 hours and back at it. My head hurts! I contacted Toshiba and they blew me off to Microsoft, who wants money for support. The unit is less than 72 hours old, and there is no support. Ive viewed hundreds of pages online and get the same fix over and over. That is to use an icon that I don't have, or use Alt-M. I just sent backup files to external HD and am getting ready to do a destructive recovery. Any help would be appreciated. Barring a fix, I'm either going to install XP Pro, or return the unit.

A:Help! Missing icons in Windows 7 Live Mail 2011

Hi diablodrew,

Do you have a little down arrow either where the icons should be or underneath the ribbon? If so press it and select what you want to see.

Hey everyone, I'm having trouble with Windows Live Mail 2011. It crashes everytime I use it. Sometimes it crashes immediately on startup, other times it crashes a couple minutes after startup. Here's my error message:

Any help solving would be greatly appreciated. WLM is my preferred email client and I don't want to have to switch to something else.

Maybe a repair on WLM will sort it.

I updated from Windows Live Mail 2010 to 2011 and i can no longer connect to my hotmail account. I keep getting error message 0x80048820. i have tried reseting my password and deleting the account multiple times. I also changed to the POP server and it downloaded my inbox but would not sync with the rest of the account. my g-mail account is working fine. Any suggestion?

Make sure that your incoming mail server is and your outgoing mail server is and you've got a checkmark in the box that your mail server requires authentication. Plus it should be POP3 server. Hope this helps.

There is a tip about enabling Vista-compatibility mode, thus allowing WLM to always minimize to tray, but it does not work on 8. Any one got this working? Thanks.

4 days ago i discovered that all my private email folders ( about 30 folders ) that i created, disappeared.

Since i backup my computer weekly i tried to recover to a previous system time before the folders disappeared. Unfortunately the recovery failed due a file error and i was suggested to remove my antivirus and try to recover again which i did but with the same result!

I do have a system repair disc. Is there a proper solution using this disc or you may have another option?

Thanking you for your kind investigating this problem and trying finding a solution.

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit and I've recently upgraded my copy of Windows Live Mail to WLM 2011. However, compared with the previous version of WLM, there are two functions which I am unable to find in the new version.

1. In the previous version, I could choose whether or not WLM checked for new emails just at start-up, or at pre-set intervals. Is this facility still available and if so, where can I find it?

2. If I accidentally delete something in an email I am forwarding, there does not appear to be an 'Undo' facility, like there was in the previous version.

I would appreciate any help regarding these two issues

I tried to list a category <name> in TO: to send mail. The Category name wasn't recognized.

What I was trying to do was hide the distribution list.

I can copy everything from the Category name and paste into TO: but this seems to be a brute force approach and it list all the name.

TIA for any help,

I need to search one of my WLM 2011 folders for a word that appears in the text of the folder's messages. I see that in 2009, there was some concern about doing this, which directed people to LiveMailFix.reg, but since I have WLM 2011 and that thread is some years old, I'm guessing that problem has been fixed. Correct?

In any case, how do I perform this search? I admit I need some hand-holding on this one.


A:Search message text Windows Live Mail 2011

First click on the folder you want to search within WLM. Then, in the dialog box that pops up you enter the text you're searching for in the "Message" box.

(As a matter of fact, I had to tell Windows Search not to include email when doing normal indexing/searching for documents, pictures, favorites, etc. because I have so many messages saved that the email results swamp out everything else. When I want to search email I do it within the email program as described above.)

I had an email from Microsoft saying that they are making changes to their web email services in a few weeks time and that it would prevent email from being delivered to Windows Live Mail 2012. However, I'm actually using Windows Live Mail 2011. Does anyone know if the upcoming change will also prevent emails from being delivered to Windows Live Mail 2011 or is it a Windows Live Mail 2012 issue? If it applies to both versions, I'll have to update to Windows Live Mail 2012 and then apply the patch as I see that Windows Live Mail 2011 is no longer supported.

Where are the autocomplete email addresses stored and can they be exported to an Outlook nk2 file?

A:Windows Live mail 2011 can the email addresses from autocomplete be ex

Welcome to Seven Forums LERLNZ. The contacts are store as a contacts.edb file in either

C:\Users\<windows username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Contacts\default\15.4\DBStore


C:\Users\<windows username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Contacts\default\15.5\DBStore

depending on your version. The DBStore is a hidden folder, so you would have to set Windows to show hidden folders

You can export your contacts as a .csv file

I have a problem which just started after a few years of use. When I click on an imbeded hotlink in livemail the link tries to open in windows word instead of just going to the site. Even if word is able to open the page, none of the links work. This is very goofy and suspect some setting changed but cant figure it out


A:Windows 7 & Live Mail 2011 problem-defaults to word

Suggestion :

See if your Internet Explorer, or your main browser, has all its defsults.
Start > Default Programs > Set Your Default Programs > left column, click your main browser. Does it asy " This program has all its defaults " ?
If no, click Choose Defaults for this Program > check all the boxes under the list > Save when done.

You said " livemail". If you mean Windows Live Mail, check its defaults too.

Is it possible for the program NOT to open the next message when deleting the current, opened message? If I delete the current opened message, I want the message window to close and go back to the Inbox. Currently, upon delete, the window opens to the next message from the Inbox.

Instead of deleting it while open, close it first and right-click on it to delete it from the list.
