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.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

It seems to me that the only way I can access my Hotmail account with Windows is by using Windows Live Mail I set up the Outlook com account and that works fine but the Hotmail account does not send or receive emails I get logon messages asking for my password all the time I tried to set up the Hotmail account using the same WLM settings as on my desktop computer with Win but the categories Hotmail work Mail account Solved: Live with my to Can't get 2012. Windows are not the same for Win and the info cannot be entered I have tried to follow the suggestions that I have seen Solved: Can't get my Hotmail account to work with Windows Live Mail 2012. in other threads but they haven t helped Right now I have the following settings for my Hotmail My ID is my Hotmail address along with my password that I use the incoming server is POP the server field is pop live com with SSL checked and port the outgoing server is smtp live com with port with the SSL box checked My desktop computer WLM is set up as follows the ID s etc are my Hotmail addresses and passwords but there is a server URL http mail services live com DeltaSync v sync aspx url instead of outgoing and incoming servers etc There is no Advanced tab here as in Win I hope my explanation is not too confusing Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated Thanks nbsp

Why not allow hotmail to automatically setup
it works OK on WLM 12 on 8.1 I have set up quite a few hotmail/outlook accounts
Also it works with the mail app as well
I've had Outlook 2010 installed for over two years on my laptop and everything has worked great.
The other day, I tried to set up a new email account and when the wizard appeared, it didn't give me the choice for MANUAL setup. I then realized that the window for the wizard was not showing all the words... the sentences ran past the viewing window and outside where I could not see, which is where the manual set up button was "below". There are no scroll bars or a way to adjust the wizard and I even tried playing with my display settings which did not work either.
I did find a work around that got my email set up but I couldn't go into advanced settings to adjust ports because of the same issue. I've looked everywhere for a fix and haven't been able to find anything... please help!
Can someone please tell me how to set up new accounts in Windows Live Mail 2012 and the Windows 8.1 mail app.
I need this info as I am changing my ISP. I am moving and am with Virgin Media but they are not cabled up where I am going and I will be going with Plusnet.
All help much appreciated.
What is the last part of your email address
just the bit after the @
if its virgin - then you will have a problem as virgin will close your email after 90days or earlier
if its not virgin and is currently working - then it should work with plusnet (who are part of BT)
so without the email service you are using its difficult to help set it up
please supply details
Strange question as this issue has never cropped up with me until now: As the header states is it possible to set up one of the accounts outgoing only?
I wonder what would happen if you did not set up the POP portion of the address in Windows Mail, but just the SMTP.http://www.vistax64.com/browsers-mail/302936-windows-mail-outgoing-only-account-setup-possible.html
I recently installed Windows Live Mail 2012 on my Win 8 machine and have it setup to my liking. Now I want to install it on a Win 7 machine and would like to duplicate the Win 8 setup on the Win 7 machine. How to I go about that without setting up each item one by one? Would it be so simple as to just copy the WLM stuff from the Win 8 AppData to the Win7 AppData?
Thank you very much.
If you like, you could use the tutorials below to export from the setup WLM on Windows 8, and import them in WLM on your Windows 7 PC to help make it easier. Windows Live Mail - Export and Import Email Accounts

A Windows Live Mail Account pop-up comes on every time I open my Live Mail emails. I went through the List Icon (upper Left corner). This only takes it off temporarily. Comes back later. How do I remove it permanently. At first my email address was in the user space and no password. Here lately no user name in user space. How can I permanently delete. Note: I am 76 yrs. old and new to computers and I thank you in advance Woodsman2
Hi woodsman2, welcome to 7F!
Is this the pop-up?
I don't believe you can delete it. It has to be there to sign-in.
Try inputting your user name and password, Make sure you have the proper email address and password spelling, when complete, click on the Remember me box if it doesn't automatically do it for you.
Be careful when signing-in. there is a forget me link right above the sign-in button, you may have inadvertently clicked that to start this problem you're having. I'm hoping that if you sign-in it will reset the "Forget Me" action.
Can you describe the "list icon" a little better, maybe point it out on this?
If you click on the attachment it may open in a new tab, if you click on it there it might get larger and better to see. This depends on the browser you're using.
If it doesn't go to a new tab or get larger, study it, when done click on the browser back button to the left of the www. address bar to return to your thread.
Every time I tried to log in into my windows live mail I get a warning that the password is wrong. Only at the second attemp I get to access my mail account. Does anybody know how to fix it and why does it happen? thanks!

I have a Windows Live Mail account that I use to access my Comcast email. It has and still is working fine. I added a new email address/account to the Live Mail and when I hit send/receive a small box pops up requesting my username and password. When it comes up, the fields are already populated, so I just click ok. After a few seconds it comes up again asking me the same thing. I have tried deleting what was in there and typing it myself, but that does not seem to work either. Before I created this new email account, this box never popped up. I have made sure that all the information was exactly the same in the new account as the first email account, POP server, etc. Please help. It is driving me bananas.
Hi bevygram and welcome to Seven Forums. OK. When you added this new email did you put a check mark in "Include this account when receiving mail or synchronizing" in Windows LiveMail? Check this by clicking on Accounts right at the top of the page then select the new account and click on Properties. It will be at the bottom of the first page. Don't forget to click Apply. Let us know how it works out.http://www.sevenforums.com/browsers-mail/162164-windows-live-mail-new-account.html
I am setting up my email accounts in Outlook 2016. I always do a manual setup and on my outlook.com email accounts, I use Exchange ActiveSync.
My questions are this.
What is this new option of selecting Office 365 and when would I use this option?When I did select the Office 365 option and pressed next my outlook would crash, any fix?What is the best selection to choose from when setting up my outlook.com account that would be great for automatically syncing with my calendar etc. on outlook.com or apple etc.?
Thank you very much for any help and assistance.
Manual setup for outlook.com accounts is absolutely unnecessary, Outlook 2016 does that automatically in a few seconds.
That being said, if you insist in doing it manually the correct option is Exchange ActiveSync. Office 365 option is for so called workplace email accounts, Azure AD / Office 365 for Business or Enterprise users. You select that option only if your organisation uses Office 365 and you want to set up your workplace email in Outlook 2016.

Since confirming I successfully added my Hotmail using POP to WLM and tested it, (it worked) it has been removed from WLM as it gets very very few messages.
My settings were slightly different from yours.
On the Servers tab, I ticked 'My server requires authentication'
On the Advanced tab, 'Server Timeouts' was set to 5 minutes & everything below 'Delivery' was unticked.
I have also made changes to my other accounts.

I have a domain name which is picked up by Madasafish along with my Madasafish mail and I am trying to get an account set up on new laptop with Windows 10 and WLM. (I am currently using Outlook Express and XP). If I send and receive with my Madasafish details anything addressed to [email protected] will appear in the inbox, but if I try to send and receive with my domain account ie [email protected], I can neither send or receive. (Using the madasafish account I can receive for both accounts, but only send with madasafish). Clearly I have messed up the settings somewhere although I have tried using exactly the same settings as are currently working fine on the old laptop. Please can anyone help with sorting this out?
Just in case anyone else has a similar problem it was very simple. I had not unticked 'my server requires SSL' under the advanced tab.http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forum/windows-29/using-domain-account-windows-live-mail-4598180/

Unfortunately, I don't think you can use the same ID. Every account has a different ID/password combination, and if you try to open a new Windows Live account, you will just get an error message saying that ID is already in use. I think the only thing you can do is to take all of the steps you can to clean up your email account.
Here's some help for you:
First, I suggest you run one or two good malware scans (i.e. Malwarebytes or MSE or TrendMicro) to get rid of any malware in your email account (or anywhere on your system).
Then, follow the steps below, and hopefully there's help for you there.
First line of defense is to change your password and all "secret questions" and "answers."
Then, if hackers have locked you out of your email, go on-line and sign up for the free service in which you give your email provider (i.e. Windows Live/Hotmail, Yahoo, etc.) your cell phone number and they text you a secret code to allow you to get back into your email.
Next, when you do get back into your email, always "log out" of your email when you exit, rather than just hitting the exit X icon. Hitting the exit X doesn't end your email session, only 'logging out' actually shuts it down. If you just press exit, that leaves it available to be hacked because technically, it's still open, even after you've gone.
If nothing above has helped the problem, take a look at these tutorials to see if there is any help there for you:

I use pop3, smtp 127.0.0.1 and my username as eg. [email protected] I enter the full address, even the @yahoo part too. It asks to check authenticate option in the settings so I did. I even tried changing my zone to Asia because I heard some people on the message board there talking about it. That didn't work. I get my gmail to work but why does Yahoo! have to be so complex? Anyway, if anyone can assist, please let me know.

My existing hotmail email account just switched to outlook express. Since then - I've switched to "windows live mail" and my 2 existing existing email addresses have been sucessfully transferred over to "live mail" and both work.
But now trying to ADD more email addresses in my"live mail account" and all attempts have failed.
Tryed to manually config server settings - and that failed. Commom advice is to "contact your email provider" for server settings...... Well who is provider? hotmail?? outlook express?? windowss live mail?? What gives?? Anyone know where iam going wrong?
Every so often - not each time I open Windows Live Mail but daily or every other day there is no inbox. Also my (only) email account has disappeared. When I make the account again the inbox reappears (including all the mail that I had already deleted).
I use Windows 7 64 bit.
Why does this happen?
Thanking you in advance,
If you're using IMAP it can happen when there's a communication issue with your eMail provider.
Have you tried manually rebuilding the account with a POP/SMTP configuration and seeing if the problem happens then?

Since you're using Windows 7 for WLM and OE for XP they can't simultaneously be on the same PC. However both programs can be set up on their respective PCs at the same time; just keep in mind that if you download your mail on one PC you won't see it on the other afterwards unless you choose the option to "keep mail on server".
If OE is working, look carefully at every tab of Account Properties and set up WLM the same way. WLM is the replacement for OE for Windows 7 and will work if set up the same.

Mitchell mate I have gone over to Thunderbird - it can be configured just like WLM (GUI) and as long as you are keeping your accounts - mine for example are hotmail and the local provider bigpond - TB will import all the mails I used to have in WLM.
I may not be understanding exactly what you want but seeing WLM is being made redundant and I am NOT a fan of Outlook I am now with TB I thought I would try it and it works really very well.
I keep having a issue with MS Outlook amp Windows Live mail I keep getting asked to enter a security code and other personal info that I don't feel I need to give to MS I initially used a code number sent to an alternate e-mail address Live/Outlook blocked access re-verifications Windows account e-mail & I had to open in order to receive the code to verify my current e-mail account I told MS I didn't want to keep doing this anymore and either stop blocking my account or delete it They still persist with requesting my personal info phone numbers creating alternate e-mail Windows Live/Outlook e-mail account blocked access & re-verifications accounts and passwords etc I'm totally confused MS uses this catchall phrase to pump personal info on personal e-mail accounts quot Call us overprotective but we want to make sure your account is secure quot Or we suspect someone quot may be quot trying to access your account Yea me WTH is this really all about I also Windows Live/Outlook e-mail account blocked access & re-verifications have had the same e-mail account for several Windows Live/Outlook e-mail account blocked access & re-verifications years and never had any security issues or problems Personally I think its just a ploy to collect personal info for some use other than to make my account secure Its not like I have a business account with big bucks here for a hacker to make some quick money The giving of personal info should be up to the individual account holder not a requirement by MS Any solutions here Should I save my e-mail account info to a flash drive or something and find another e-mail service provider that is less intrusive If so any other e-mail provider recommendations Or other solutions to circumvent the annoyingly redundant MS account re-verifications - times a month Thanks Vista-Win
I feel your pain - Gmail is just about as bad.
Drop the "service" and pay a small amount for a different service. I switched to fastmail.fm - price is very low and service has been fantastic.
I dropped the MS account long ago and cleaned out my Gmail so there is nothing to see. Have to keep it in order to update my Android tablet otherwise I would trash it, too.
I have been using WLM 2011 for a couple of years now. Everything was good until last Thursday. I opened WLM and got an error about login failed. After checking my account settings, I noticed everything was now set up as IMAP. I called my ISP and they confirmed it was supposed to be POP3.
So... can I reset the account back to POP3 without losing my mail?
I did do a system restore back to a point a couple of days before this happened. No change.
Thanks for your help.

I just got finished recovering my email into WIndows Live Update after a hard disk crash. Somehow I now have two accounts that are duplicated. The accounts are listed as Mindspring (uid) (1) and Mindspring (uid). Each account has the 5 basic folders in it: Inbox, Drafts, Sent Items, Junk email, and Deleted Items. I want to delete the redundant account so I don't have to be careful about which account I am using to send, etc. Every email I receive goes into both inboxes.
I found the answer. There is a menu item to disable an account. Sorry for the time waster...http://www.sevenforums.com/browsers-mail/270180-how-can-i-remove-redundant-account-windows-live-mail-windows-7-a.html
My Windows Live account refuses to synch with my Mail, Calender & People apps in Metro using Release Preview. I keep getting an error message stating that my [email protected] account is not available. My Facebook, Twitter, Linked In & Google Mail accounts synch without a hitch. My Windows Live account synchs no problem on my Windows Phone, which has Mango installed. I can also access my Windows Live account on my browsers [IE, Opera, Firefox]. Why will it not synch in Windows 8 when it previously did?
Removing the account completely and signing in to the app again does not solve the problem. It makes no difference if I log in using either my Windows Live account or my local account to sign in to Windows 8.
Here's the message I get in top left hand corner of my screen. It says, "[email protected] is not available".
This problem seems to have sorted itself out. A problem with the MS servers in my region? Possibly.http://www.eightforums.com/software-apps/6797-mail-calender-people-apps-refuse-sync-windows-live-account.html

You do not specify which service you are trying to connect to.
Most on-line mail services will provide you with a method of recovering a lost password. I would suggest you try to contact them and see what options are available to you

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've set up Live Mail on my laptop (Windows 7 Home) which I use as ancillary to my desktop on which I use Windows Mail (Vista). All emails received appear on my
desktop Mail account, but only some of them appear on my laptop Live Mail account.
What is the reason for this and is there some way that I can setup so that all emails
appear on both the desktop and laptop computers?
Have you tried logging into your Email Client (Hotmail, aol ...etc) Via a Web Browser and check all your Emails are there. It could be a synchronisation problem.
I was able to get the addresses from XP to Win 7 thanks to this forum. Now a new problem' In XP OE my wife had some E Mail addresses grouped together. They didn't transfer as groups. In live mail how can I set up some mail groups?
WLMail, click on Contacts (bottom left) In the Contacts window, click on Home (top left)
Click on "Category" (new name for "Group")
enter a category name
click on the contacts you want to add
click on "Save"

Hi and welcome
Verizon should have given you information like you user name, which servers to use for mail, etc. Using those, goto tools>accounts>add and fill in the information there.
Let us know if you need help with that
Skipped Vista and went to Win 7 in Dec. Rebuilt system. Decided to use Windows Live Mail. We don't have extraordinary email client needs. But not sure what I may be missing with other free or cheap email clients. (I am an old Eudora user)
Now I have to sign IN to Window Live Mail every time I turn on the program. It does not sign on automatically as checked.
I would like to know all this does for me before I turn it off and close the account..
As long as you do not choose the Connection Option to "Stop Signing In" it should sign in automatically. Try a repair: Programs and Features, highlight Windows Live Essentials, click on repair and in the next window choose repair. It will repair all installed parts of Essentials, including Mail. (This is also needed in 2011 to fix a bug with the Junk Mail filtering.)
You may also notice that your contact list will differ depending on whether you are signed in or not.
Can somebody tell me how to remove an account from Windows Live Mail 11?
In WLM, click on Mail (bottom left).
Then right-click on the account you wish to remove, select "Remove Account".
This will also remove any messages under that account, so if you wish to save them, move them to a Storage folder first.
The AT&T email site that I have been using for email is finally getting on my nerves. I can't sort by name any longer, and the ads are very annoying. So, I want to use MS Live Mail. However, once I set up the account, and receive/send, I get the following error.
Unable to send or receive messages for the Sbcglobal (j.k.cerny) account. The connection to the server has failed.

I have searched at the yahoo site and the MS Live mail site, but can't find a solution. I would greatly appreciate it if someone who actually understands this could help. Thanks
Here is the info from AT&T for setting up your account. Look over their instructions and see if you've missed something.

I tried logging onto my live mail account that I live it Locked of can't out reset. mail get account, use for paypal Locked out of live mail account, can't get it reset. and ebay and I got this quot It looks like someone else might be using your account quot It then gives me a form to try and prove I am the person behind the account But the only thing I can remember to put in there is recent ebay transactions and it doesn't ask for email i've received only emails i've sent So the link failed and i'm still locked out Every single logon in there for the past two years Locked out of live mail account, can't get it reset. comes from this IP address But the biggest problem is that I have rarely ever sent an email from this address as it as I only use it for ebay paypal purchases And the only thing the form seems to be interested in is sent mail And what's infuriating about this is they've done this on all of my accounts now in the past two years I don't even remember how I managed to get the other two accounts freed up but it was a different form than I got tonight Edit One important point I should add here they did this each time because I dared to logon to my account from another location IP address Yes that's right Apparently Microsoft no longer condones you being able to be mobile with your email accounts Sigh At any rate if someone has some sort of customer service link I could use to resolve this it would be appreciated But it seems that all the original customer service links from the outlook rollout are dead

Here is a link to a few error codes for Windows Mail if you look down the list you will find your code and it states cannot connect to server. Windows Mail and Windows Live Mail error codes
Which is either a server entry wrong on your end, username/password incorrectly entered or your internet connection is having an issue at that time. Double check your internet connectivity and all your settings in your email program.
Since MS took away outlook I have been setting up Live Mail. When trying to send a picture I've been getting a "Windows Live Error 80070057"
A little bit of Googling and it seems that others have made this error go away by creating a Live Mail account.
This ruffles my feathers. If we have an account with our ISP WHY are we being forced to create a Live Mail account...OK I think I know why but I don't have to like it.
Has anyone found a way around this?
I am pretty sure you can just attach the image (as you would attach any other document) to an email. I used to do this all the time on my earlier rig, which has Live Mail 2011 (the email client).

Following on from the thread about changing Windows Live ID New mail address new Windows Live ID and a to 2007? Live account How Outlook with mail filter in successfully integrating the new live no account into Office Outlook I'm discovering to my disappointment that the new account can't filter mail With my old pop smtp account I could set up rules to divert mail from specific groups or senders to a specific folder For example my pop account filters out and places email from the various Yahoo forums I subscribe to into specific folders created for the purpose This is the How to filter mail with a Live account in Outlook 2007? function of the quot create rule quot facility in Outlook Now the new Windows Live email setup is what they call an imap account It has its own pst file and its own inbox and outbox How to filter mail with a Live account in Outlook 2007? in Office Outlook These can't be merged with the old inbox or outbox How to filter mail with a Live account in Outlook 2007? because they're two different systems apparently What I can't understand is why I can't quot create rules quot for mail coming through my Live email account Or rather I can create the rules but the imap system just doesn't follow them No Yahoo forum mail is placed automatically into the relevant Yahoo forum folders in Outlook Have I misunderstood something because an email service account which doesn't allow me to create rules or filter mail is not really much use to me
you might be able to set up rules if you go into the web version of the live email account
This way it will filter before it gets into your outlook 2007
My mum has got a new computer, and it has Vista on it and therefore has Windows Live Mail. She is used to outlook express and I just check my emails from a website rather than a programme like this, so i am not accustom to them. Live Mail will not let her sign in to her account. It says the email or password is incorrect. Both are correct as they will work on the website. I have checked all the property setting and they are correct and even tried setting the incoming settings to private as suggested on the website. I have now noticed it will send emails if i go to start then hover over windows live mail, then select send new message. This will send a message from her email. Yet when Live Mail is opened up it and send and receive pressed it says password/email incorrect.
Any suggestions please.
I just got Windows 7 64-bit with my NEW CPU. I was using (Windows XP) outlook express as my e-mail server. Since Windows 7 doesn't support it, I made a new account with Windows live 2011. I followed the instructions and added an account using my old e-mail address. I copied the properties from outlook express.
I can't get live.com to show me my e-mail. I went to their support site and followed the instructions to change the incoming port from 110 to 587 and checked the box for SSL. I still can't get any e-mail
I'm able to send it, though

Hey, I think I fixed it. When I ran my antivirus progam before, (I'm using avg free edition) it didn't pick anything up. But then I ran an update for it yesterday and installed a priority update, and then I ran a scan, and it picked up and deleted a trojan horse from msn.com. I guess I still need to give it time to see if my messenger keeps acting up so I can make sure that was actually the problem, but I think that may have been it. Please do let me know if you see anything in my Hijack This log that needs changing. Thanks.
Just upgraded to Windows 7 and had to switch from Outlook email to Windows Live Mail. Which up until 3 days ago was working fine. Now I am unable to view, in a list form, all email received, sent or deleted as before. I can't scroll from one message to the next. It shows I have 55 messages and I can only see one at a time with no way of viewing the next one. I have already gone into the menu "view" which is set to view all emails, but it is not letting me view all.
This has become a tremendously frustrating problem.
Try this, change the layout
tick "Show Reading Pane", "Bottom" (my preference)
Now your messages should show in the upper pane, hopefully.

Can she access her mail and then if she deletes, will iot also delete her mail on my Desk Top. I got reply from "C141" who said yes. Today I was at Office Depot looking for a lap top and told the sales person what I wanted to do. He said that if she deletes her e-mail it would delete on hers, it still would be on my desk top? Any further clarification would be appreciated.
Both are right. IMAP mail will sync across devices. POP mail must be managed manually.
HI guys, I have just moved to WLM. I was trying to familiarise myself with its features, and I managed to lose

I am running Windows Live mail 2012. How do I change the name Windows Live Mail shows on outgoing mail?
Load Windows Live Mail 2102.
Click Accounts, then click Properties
Type in the name that you want to use.
Click Apply - OK
I am migrating from an XP SP3 desktop to a Windows 7 64 bit machine. I use Outlook Express extensively on the XP machine, but have loaded Live Mail on the W7 one as the recommended solution.
I have experimented with the Import function in Live Mail using the .dbx files produced by OE held under 'Identities' but find that the Account field for each email (visible in Live Mail when the Account column is enabled) is not being populated in Live Mail. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug? I note that any new emails I receive do populate the Account field, and I am confident that the Account information is present in the .dbx files.
I would like to find a workaround for this problem - any ideas folks?

I suppose you could call it a bug. It seems to happen whenever you do an import using the "import/export" "wizards". Not just with OE>WLM but also WLM>WLM. (Same with Vista's built-in WM.) It's been too long for me to remember what happened when I last did OE>OE. Keep in mind that wherever an import/export is involved (even with contacts), some fields are lost.
Just got a new laptop and am getting to know Windows 7! I have used outlook express for years and was bummed to find out it no longer existed. I found windows live mail 2011 on my laptop and have imported my csv address book. My problem is creating groups. Can you even do it? I have been scouring the web and Microsoft's site, they are no help. I am not using hotmail. I use gmail. Thanks for any help.
If you mean a "Distribution List" type of group, they are Category in Live Mail.
Go to "Contacts", then "Category", there add a Category name and the select who, from your Contacts list, you want in the list. OK yourself out.
hi, since upgrading firefox to v 3..0 everytime i log into live mail it reverts to the 'classic' interface (html). if you try and change it to the full version you just get an error, anyone else having this issue?
its a known issue with no fix as of yet. Best guess is Hotmails browser "sniffing" is reporting an unknown browser. It'll probably be addressed before to long but for now if you use FF3 you'll be stuck with the classic interface.
I am using Windows Live Mail and when an email is received from - say - a marketing company, only the 'bare' text downloads without any pictures etc (only a small box with a red cross in the corner).
Can someone please let me know how to get the full email each time
. Many thanks
Welcome to TSF!
This is actually a security feature of Windows Mail to help protect you.
You can go to the top of the mail messesage and select show images or add that sender to the safe sender list to always get the images.
If you really want to disable that protection, you can go to the Home tab and select the arrow under Junk and select Safety Options.
Then under the Security tab, uncheck the box next to block images....
I installed the Windows Live Mail program and have come to the realisation that it's crap and want it off my system, but there doesn't seem to be any obvious way to do that. Anyone know how?

Try the following port 465 or 2525? in smtp, what it sounds like to me is that your ISP is block port 25.

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.
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.
WLM 2011 Tools settings - click on blue icon, select "Options", "Mail" -

Hope this is posted in the right forum. Sometimes I can print an e-mail message in Windows Live Mail and it prints with no difficulty. Other times, the text will run off the right side margin and I will then have to reduce the size of the mail percentage so all of the text will print. Then, the text is so small I almost have to use a magnifying glass to read the message. What am I missing or is this just collateral damage from using web based mail?

Have no idea why it would be non-responding so much. I would uninstall it (uninstall Windows Live Essentials, and before anything actually happens you get the opportunity to choose all or just WLM or other parts) and reinstall.
I don't like it, so am happy to suggest my choice of email client: Thunderbird.
Good afternoon all.
Suddenly today, My google email quit sending email. (only 1 of 3 accounts) when using Windows Live Mail . The error I got was ID:0X800CCC)B. The other accounts are fine, or were. I disconnected from on line using the Icon at the top, now I cannot get it to go back on line. The rest of my system is working fine and I can access the email by using the web address.
Does anyone have any idea what I can do to correct this?
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?
Zipping is what I use from Windows Explorer.
Otherwise, while in WLM, you can attach or insert pics.
This thread may provide other ideas - How to disable Skydrive and photo album in WLM 2011

I have searched the forums only, & can't read Mail Firefox corrupt? Live account open User Docs and can find similar issues but none seem to be the same I can't User account corrupt? Docs read only, can't open Firefox & Live Mail remember the exact sequence of User account corrupt? Docs read only, can't open Firefox & Live Mail events but it went something like I had been having problems with Sonos desktop controller and updated reinstalled this didn't resolve the problem by the way and am seeking resolution through the Sonos forum At about User account corrupt? Docs read only, can't open Firefox & Live Mail the same time I started getting a security message from my HP Assistant telling me the guest account was enabled but as far as I can see it wasn't I now only have read access to my documents and they crash when opened Firefox thought for a while another instance was open and asked me to close it but it wasn't open Firefox now won't open and is telling me quot Could not initialize the browser's security component The most likely cause is problems with files in your browser's profile directory Please check that this directory has no read write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full It is recommended that you exit the browser and fix the problem If you continue to use this browser session you might see incorrect browser behavior when accessing security features quot Windows LiveMail will not open due to corrupt calendar entry I get a Catalyst Control Centre error also It looks similar to registry problems others have had and I have set up a new admin account and copied over the internet security settings using regedit but it only appears to have helped marginally - I can now open files albeit briefly whereas before I couldn't open them at all Interestingly I am getting the HP security warning in the other admin account telling me the guest account is enabled - it is not It looks like I have overcome the firefox problem by setting up an additional profile in firefox but it doesn't have any of my favourites etc Rather than copying everything over to a new user account I wondered if there was a fix It smacks of a problem in the profile but am not sure where to look Thanks in advance and sorry if there is a solution already posted - I have looked and looked
Just a sugggestion: Dowunoad MalewareBytes Anti Malware and run in safe mode, also download ccleaner or glary utilities Maleware bytes will remove any malicious software and, ccleaner, glary utilities will celan up your registry. These are the two first things I do before I do any thing on a persons computer unless I know it is an absolute hardware issue. May be someone else may know more about your issue than I.http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/186637-user-account-corrupt-docs-read-only-cant-open-firefox-live-mail.html
Hi I had to re install my OS After I did that the fun of installing everything started and one of those things was Windows Live Mail I've done this before when I bought my new computer and had some issues importing my mail as well which was the same idea Live mail to Live mail Now I'm facing the issue again and find it hard to find a simple and straight forward answer to my issue as most topics go about Windows mail or show importing methods which aren't the same as I used before so I'll try to explain as good as possible what I encounter I click on import messages and select email messages Then it lets me choose a folder from which I can install I select my external HD where the back up is Then when I want to add it I get the option to either select the folders I want to add or I can add all of them Strange importing Live Live to Windows Trouble Mail Mail Windows thing here is that it doesn't show my inbox or any subfolder and I had many subfolders but only shows the deleted folder When I do proceed it adds that what it Trouble importing Windows Live Mail to Windows Live Mail showed and I don't have anything imported other then the deleted folders Now I might be doing something wrong as in the past this was the way I could import and export Maybe I don't have enough rights for the folder I do hope that someone can help me out and have a straight forward solution because if I lose all these emails I will go crazy Looking forward to any help Jeroen
Name a folder in my documents. Call it Windows live mail backup
Make a sub folder call it backup
Click on options/ email
Click on export mail
It should pop up with all the folders, in box etc.
highlight each folder. You will have to do it with the crtl key because using shift key sometimes does not work
It will then give you a browse where to put it. Put in the backup folder you made. Them copy and paste the folder onto the flash drive
On the new computer you will do the same thing bit you will pick import instead of export
Livemail inexplicably throwing up this error (under WIN7)
When trying to send/receive I get :
Unable to send or receive messages for the Yahoo.co (............) account. An unknown error has occurred.
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x80004005
(..........) above is my Yahoo email id.
BIZARRE - 10 seconds after posting it fixed itself ...... computers ...dontcha love em
First time this has happened in 18 months using Livemail and WIN7 - was receiving mail successfully 10 minutes before it decided to go into error.
Any ideas anyone ?
I can still acess Yahoo mail on web.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
This just happened again - identical circumstances ..... and so far it hasn't fixed itself - still interested in any other experiences as I see my original post was viewed 600+ times ? Anyone had the same error and know how to fix it ?
When I receive emails with a link to web sites, I can not click on the link to be redirected, (other than right clicking copy and paste into browser). Instead, I receive an error message that reads: "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or if one is installed, create an association in the Default Programs Control Panel". Any suggestions?
What's your Web browser?
If it's Internet Explorer, make sure it's set as your default browser.

Until recently all email messages received appeared in the inbox of the email account. However, recently some of my emails do not appear in my inbox even though I can see that emails are being downloaded. I have not set up any filters to block email messages and indeed some of the emails that "disappear" are from friends in my Contacts. One further quirk, the messages that do not appear in my inbox DO appear briefly in Quick Views but then they disappear immediately after they are viewed. Can anyone help me solve this problem?
Taking into account these e-mails are from your contacts, are you sure the new e-mails are not being grouped with old e-mails from them? Try looking in a previous e-mail from them and see if a new one is there, a bit like 'conversation' mode. You can try this by getting a friend to e-mail you twice to see if you get two e-mails or they are group.

> Click on the Conversations button/drop down,

Ladies and Gentlemen:
How does one fix a default language,i.e. English(Windows), in the message displays of Windows Live Mail 2011?
The default in the download is English(Western Europe) and any change defaults to this Encoding language upon reloading.
I see this is marked "solved", but see no solution. Here it is, anyway:
Options|Mail...|Read|[Fonts] International Settings
Select the default font encoding of your choice (mine is currently "Unicode (UTF-8)"), check "Use default encoding for all incoming messages", click on OK, and then on OK again. All done.
I have Windows Vista Home Premium and I am using Windows Live Mail with Comcast as my ISP. Recently I received the following error message: "Server: 'smtp.comcast.net', 'Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0E,' 'Protocol: SMTP,' 'PORT:25,' 'Secure (SSL):No,' 'Socket Error 100060' "
I can receive emails and go to web sites; however, I cannot send emails. They all go to Outbox. This is a new problem which has never previously occurred in over one year of use.
Does anyone have a suggested fix?
Hello: I recently learned that Windows Live Mail is supposed to be the Up-Grade from Outlook Express in XP and Vista. I have a 2005 HP Media Center PC running xp Professional with a 250 gb hard-drive. I've upgraded the memory to 2 Gigs. My question is, Can I download and install Windows Live Mail without effecting Outlook Express and all of the emails that I've saved to various folders within the "Local Folders" of Outlook Express? My reason for wanting to make this upgrade is that recently I un-installed the Microsoft works 2003 standard version that came pre-loaded because It was only a 60-day trial version which I had not purchased the product key for. What I didn't realize was that Outlook Express was set up to use the Spell Check function from the Works 2003 program, and now Outlook Express has no spell-check functionality. Thanks for Your help on this matter, I'll wait for Your reply.D.J.L
Welcome to TSF.
I was running Outlook Express as you are, had a glitch in my OE signature, so downloaded and installed Windows Live Mail then imported all the OE folders over to it. No problems at all with doing this in my instance.
I did this some time ago, I am not certain, but I do think during the installation of Windows Live Mail you are given the option to import all your data over to WLM.
Let us know how you proceed.
I know there have been a number of posts on this subject, and many variations on the theme... so, sorry if this is redundant.
I had the unpleasant surprise of learning that it may be impossible to enjoy the same level of synch that I had before between the iTouch and Outlook (2002) under XP (SP3).
Now, all I find is that there SEEMS to be a way to get from Outlook Express (which I don't have) to Windows Live Mail, but even that looks questionable.
So, I am looking for some fresh advice on how to solve this. I mean, it is a popular combination, to have an iTouch interacting with Outlook, but I have not seen the magic bullet yet.
Any advice appreciated. Thanks!
In Vista there was a 'Send/Receive' button that would check for new messages.
Windows Live Mail does not seem to have this - is there any way of adding this?
There are sync functions at the top.
That does the same thing.
