Preferred Solution: Windows Live Mail 2012 to stop support of Microsoft-based e-mail

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Microsoft to discontinue support for Windows Live Mail 2012

First off - it is definitely genuine;

Yes it is.  I have seen a few articles about this.

The trouble for me is this: I dislike browser-based email with a passion.

Me too, as a Linux user I use Thunderbird. I probably wouldn't use the email account if I was forced to do it browser based.
I only created a MS account when I tried Windows 10 so it wont bother me. I also have an icloud account that I never access from my PC, a good email client set up right cant be beat.

I have an Windows (Vista) notebook with outlook 2007, and now I have an new notebook with Windows 8.1. Where I want to export my mail & contact to Windows live mail, how can I import this in WLM on my other notebook?

I already have configure my mail on WLM where I can receive and send messages. I tried something with the program Mailstore 8 but my mail is now on another computer.

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?

A:Export mail and contacts from Outlook 2007 to Windows live mail 2012?

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.

I believe if you are replying to an email from the person you want to add, if you open your sent email, their email will be a link. Right click the link and it should have an option 'Add to Contacts'.

In windows live mail 2012 as is other mail programs I have a calendar. Whether or not I am logged in or not how do I incorporate a .ics file into this calendar? I read somewhere that wlm2012 will not allow this but I am not sure. What's the definitive answer. Thanks Vince

A:windows live mail 2012 issue

Hi vinman,

You may import an 'ICS file' with 'Windows Live Mail' only with 'Windows Live Calendar' on the web. To import it, open Sign In > Sign in with the same 'Live ID' that you use to sign in 'Windows Live Mail' > Import the 'ICS file' on the web (Your online calendars will automatically sync with your Windows Live Mail calendars).

Hope this helps. Do reply if you have any further questions.

About to do a complete wipe of my hard drive and reinstall Windows 7. My concern is being certain that I have Windows Live Mail 2012 backed up. I have five different accounts running through WLM and it is critical I don't lose any emails sent or received.
I took a look at the tutorials and played around but I must be doing something wrong. For example, when I trying exporting and then importing some test messages I wasn't able to find them. The storage folders, where I think the test emails should have been imported, were empty. Tried a few times and always the same result.
Now I'm thinking it might be easier if I just back up all the folders in the Windows Live Mail folder on the C drive. Is this a viable and fool proof way of saving all emails and then being able to restore them?

A:Windows Live Mail 2012 Backup Questions

If the accounts are IMAP, the mail will be retained on the remote server no matter what you do with your local client (except for deleting mail from within the client, which will delete it remotely as well). POP is another story, because once downloaded it usually, though not always, is gone from the remote.

I don't see why you couldn't back up the entire WLM folder, which is probably in c:\users\<user name>\appdata\local....

In fact, when I do a reinstall, I always do a file back up of most of the appdata folder. It invariably comes in very handy.

Another way for an independent mail backup, POP or IMAP, is to use MailStore, which is free for private use.

I'm working on a laptop with Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail 2012 is not exporting email properly.

There are 4,008 messages in the Inbox folder but the export function will only copy out ONE message. A web search finds that this function of WLM 2012 is very badly broken and apparently Microsoft is not going to fix it. No difference in its dysfunction if it's set to work offline.

Exporting from Outlook then into WLM worked fine, but WLM can only (not) export to WLM and Exchange, which requires being on a network with an Exchange server.

A:How do I get Windows Live Mail 2012 export to work?

Open the blue File menu
Select Export email > Email messagesSelect Microsoft Windows Live MailChose the export destination folder, [Make New Folder] is a bit tricky, the Folder: field doesn't always automatically get updated, I just click on the folder above it, then click on the folder I created. As long as both the highlighted folder and the name of the folder in the Folder: filed match, you're good to go.
Press [OK]Make sure the radio button All folders is the active selection.
Press [Next]The export should begin and every eMail message should be in the destination folder you chose.

Hey all Working on a Win -bit laptop for a friend they can't access their e-mail They were running WLM and suddenly when they tried opening it it would just sit at the quot Starting quot screen and go nowhere eventually give a quot Unexpected Error quot message than quit They tried to fix this by updating it to WLM but the same thing happens I have already tried running Combofix 2012 Live and Mail Repairing start? reinstalling) Windows (Tried won't ADWCleaner MalwareBytes and HitManPro to clean the machine in case it was Malware and it is now thoroughly squeaky clean of any sketchy stuff I tried going into the Control Panel and doing a Windows Live Mail 2012 won't start? (Tried Repairing and reinstalling) Repair on the program but that made no difference I also backed up my friend's C Users AppData Local Microsoft Windows Live Mail folder and then completely uninstalled and reinstalled the program with a restart in between and that seemed to make no difference too the program still just sits at the quot Starting quot screen Any thoughts Windows Live Mail 2012 won't start? (Tried Repairing and reinstalling) They had the account set to POP so am hoping the account isn't corrupted because they would lose all their messages If I look at the System Tray and click the little arrow for the hidden programs I can see the WLM icon there - times but if I move the mouse over any of them they all disappear except for one I already looked at the log but I didn't see anything obvious then again could've missed something Any help would be appreciated for her Thanks

A:Windows Live Mail 2012 won't start? (Tried Repairing and reinstalling)

Hello Darkstrike mate sorry you had to wait for so long.
Now I really dislike installing network stuff because it is so ruddy convoluted but if you have the email set up configuration details ie the POP and IMAP settings and say a Live account - I use Hotmail then I would uninstall the WLM and just go ahead and reinstall the 2012.
I have done this on my machines before and somehow the settings have been "remembered" and if you haven't already run these< if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2
If there is still a problem I have a friend in the forum who is a network person

A:Windows live mail 2012 completely gone from the guest side

there has been changes announced recently by MS for all win live users.
the advice for users of Windows Live Mail 2012 is to switch to the Mail app on Windows or start using via a web browser before your account is upgraded. Upgrades for these accounts will start June 30, 2016 so it?s important to take action before this date.

switch to the Mail app that is built in to Win 8.1 and 10. you dont need to install any software; simply launch the Mail app, navigate to ?Add Account? and enter your email address and password. Because the data in your account is stored in the cloud, there is no need to manually move it from Windows Live Mail 2012 to the Mail app.

this link is a help article for more info.

Wlm was working perfectly--past week won't send or receive emails. Server settings for ISP TWC Roadrunner match my upstairs desktop with Outlook Express 6---it works fine. Called Microsoft to find it is a known problem a lot of people are having & the Fee to fix their glitch would be $99. I refused & was told a reinstall of Windows essentials would not solve it. Is there such a thing as a "clean install" of the program ?
Any thoughts on this appreciated.

Welcome to Seven Forums Roger. This is a send problem? Or send and receive? Give us as much info as possible, you try to do x, and receive so and so error, etc.

Try this, and see if it works. Boot to Safe Mode with Networking, and try there.

Safe Mode

If it works there, try a clean start and see if it works there

You could have a security program, or another 3rd party program blocking. That error, according to MS:

You may try the following steps and see if they help:

1. Verify settings in 'Windows Live Mail'

- Uncheck all and close the list

- Re-open 'Windows Live Mail' and check if the 'RSS feed error' still occurs

2. Also check settings in 'Internet Explorer':
- Internet Explorer > Internet Options > Content > > Feeds and Web Slices > Settings button > clear the 'Turn on in page Web Slice discovery check box' (You may also refer to this article for detailed steps: Web Slices: frequently asked questions

While using XP, I used Pegasus mail as my e-mail client. Pegasus's mail filtering options included the ability to set a duration on a mail folder such that any message in that folder, older than the specified duration, was automatically moved to the deleted mail folder.

Is there any way to achieve the same thing using Windows Mail under Vista?

Having upgraded to Windows 8 Pro 64 bit, I have discovered that I have limited control of my options, in Windows Live Mail (Essentials 2012 version)!

Prior to the upgrade, and with the 2011 version of WLM, I was able, through the Options facility to select certain actions, such as:

"Send/Receive on Start up!
Delete messages from the deleted folder on close down!

The Options Tab, which allowed these choices, was on the tool bar, at the top of the window, just below, and just to the left of the Close Window X!

This facility does not appear on the current 2012 version!

I would appreciate any advice on this matter

At the moment, I have to manually select Send/Receive, and manually delete old messages

Hi Theo, When first installing W8 I noticed the 'Tile' for Windows Live Mail in 'all apps'. Didn't take much notice as don't use Live Mail which in W7 & W8 was an integral part of Messenger. However to use Messenger you had to create a Live Mail/Hotmail a/c.
Well having become more settled with what I need in W8 I thought I'd have a look at the 'Windows Live Mail' and so pinned the tile to Start & Desktop. I just opened it today and found it has the new UI of the Ribbon Type which makes it very flexible and perhaps more attractive to future use by me. I also noticed it had the 'Options' you require, which you will find on the Toolbar when you create a new message. Hope this helps.

If you use Windows XP, click Start, and then click Run. Type the following command in the Open box, and then press ENTER:inetcpl.cpl
Click the Advanced tab.
Under Reset Internet Explorer settings, click Reset. Then click Reset again.
When Internet Explorer finishes resetting the settings, click Close in the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box.
Start Internet Explorer again.
2nd One - Go to Start - Setting - Control Panel. In folder options (switch to classic view if need be), select the second tab - View.

Make sure "Show Hidden files and folders" is selected.
Also make sure that "Hide externsion for known file type" and "Hide Protected operating system file (recommended)" are UNTICKED.

Should sort you out.

Hi PeterWeb,

Here's a thread addressing your WLM irritation for someone using Vista. Unfortunately it's implied that checking for new messages when that option is disabled is a bug - the workaround for which is to Work Offline until you want mail, then go online to download it, then Work Offline again.

A:win live mail 2012, problem

Welcome to the site Hmt321.

i am using an app password generated by the 2 step verification process, this worked just fine on his iphone
(i am not using the same app password)

Have you tried using matching password. Meaning the same ones used on iPhone on Live Mail 2012.

Try creating the account just by putting in the User Name and Password and let the software take care of the configuration.

Are you pulling the configuration from the iPhone (Incoming and outgoing)? This could be the issue if you are.

I've just exported my Contacts as a CSV file from one computer to another, both Windows 10 & running Live Mail 2012.

On the original PC, the contacts page shows columns containing name, email, mobile, home phone, notes which is great.

After the transfer, my laptop only shows name, email, mobile phone.

I can't find anywhere to add further columns

Can anyone help?

I have a Windows 7 OS.

Windows Live Mail came with the HP Desktop.

I installed Windows 2007 business suite.

I now use Outlook for my e mail.

Can I safelly uninstall Windows Live Mail?

I do not need any of the features, including Live messenger.

A:Microsoft Outlook vs Windows Live Mail

Yes, you can uninstall it. Use Control Panel, Programs, and remove Windows Live Essentials and then remove any 'Live' programs you don't want.

Having just purchased a new HP PC running Vista, I was surprised to see something called Microsoft Mail 7 in place of Outlook express.

I searched Microsoft's web site for information on Mail 7 and found exactly nothing!

The only thing that seams to resemble Mail 7 is Live Mail.

Are these the same product?

If not, what does Live Mail do that Mail 7 does not? I guess I am wondering if there is any reason for downloading and installing Live Mail when I already have Mail 7.

A:Is Microsoft Mail 7 the same as Live Mail?

Hi Ralph,

Welcome to Vista Forums.

From what I gather here below, it is just another name for the Windows Mail included in Vista.

New Developer Features for Windows Mail 7

You might give Windows Live Mail (WLM) a try though. It is free and you can have WLM run as the default email program, or use both WLM and Windows Mail. WLM supports Pop3, IMAP, HTTP website (EX: Hotmail) email, and is a lot more stable. Plus, WLM will minimize to a tray bar icon, checks spelling as you type messages, and has a separate Inbox for each email account. WLM will automatically import Windows Mail messages, accounts, and settings into it. Contacts will have to be manually imported from within WLM. (Tools, Contacts, File, Import, Address book for current Windows User.) To see the Menu bar, press ALT+M and check "Show all menus".

Hope this helps,

New member, first post. Updated to Win 10 from Win 7 in Oct 2015. I have had intermittent problems with Live Mail starting, ever since. I updated the version to 2012. It will work for a few days then it will not start. I try to repair and I will get a message that it cannot be repaired while running. I will shut the computer down, immediately repair then open and it will work for a few days. I have also restored to earlier dates, prior to the latest updates. Again, it will work for a few days. When it will not start I get the Ox80041161 error code. I decided to try the Windows 10 mail app but it will not accept my password. I will input my password and immediately a message comes up I need to update my password. When I attempt to update, I can see my original password has been changed.

Try this method to "repair" WLM 2012..................
Do not open WLM.
Go to Programs and Features > scroll down to Windows Essentials 2012 > right click at it > click Uninstall/Change > click Repair.

Hopefully the problems will not return after this.

Hello everyone,

I have a problem, weird problem, and need some advice.
Yesterday I received couple of mails, but it turned out that one of them somehow dissapeared. I saw him, read, and then....gone. I couldn't find it anywhere, even with using search button, so I logged in on the mail through the browser and.. the mail was there. The same happens with some sent messages - some of them go directly to the sent elements and some of them dissappear inbetween and are not visible there.

Any clue what may cause that?
If this changes anything, I have 'store copy of messages on server' ticked.


My system: Home 7 64 bit, Live mail 2012

A:Not all messages are visible in Live Mail 2012

store copy of messages on server or leave copy of messages on server?
If it is leave
look below it and see if anything else is checked like - remove from server after reading or remove after 1 day, etc
if so uncheck it
close wlm and see if this fixes it

Leaving a copy on the server only means you can retrieve the same message on another device, like a smart phone or another computer that is running a mail program

If this does not work you can do a repair on WLM
go into Program and features
Highlight Windows Live Essentials and click it
It will give you options to uninstall or repair
You click repair and follow what it says

I run Windows Live Mail 2012 (Build 16.4.3508.0205) on Win7 64bit.

I have several POP3 email accounts form various servers, all correctly configured and working.

However if I receive an email from a Yahoo! account created via Yahoo!'s webmail rather than an offline POP3 client, it appears blank in Live Mail 2012.

If I "select all" in the Yahoo! message and copy and paste everything into Word, the message appears - correctly, with all formatting. It's obviously an incompatibility between LM 2012 and Yahoo! but I'm at a loss now how to resolve it.

I have tinkered with encodings and changed/updated vid card drivers, but the problem persists.

Any ideas? Are there any updates? Is Live Mail 2013 or 2014 due soon?

Cheers, John.

A:Live Mail 2012 - messages from Yahoo! are blank

Welcome to Seven Forums BigJohnD. I would suspect that perhaps the emails from Yahoo are being sent in HTML, and the font color is the issue. I don't use Live Mail, but I would look for a setting to read as plain text or such. If the issue is only from one Yahoo user account, chances are they have their settings set wrong. If all Yahoo emails appear that way, then Live Mail is having difficulties with their HTML formatted emails. From searching, it looks like you are looking at the View tab for plain text settings.

Within windows 8.1, a problem has recently occurred in my Windows Live Mail
WLM opens ok and I can view my inbox, sent, etc.
But if I click on "reply", for example,  I get an error message:-
"A problem has occurred while trying to open this message.
A problem has occurred. Please try again."
I get the same error message if I try to open a New Message.
I found that I can write messages to myself online and they arrive correctly in my WLM Inbox.
This seemed to have occurred soon after an AVG update, so I uninstalled AVG and restarted, but still had the same problem.
Having looking online, I tried "repair windows essentials", but it had no effect.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Many thanks

After loading Zone Alarm basic free firewall v 110.000.120 ... which is compatible with Win8 .... on Win8 Pro OEM with all latest updates, (loaded from retail disk as clean installation), WinLiveMail, latest v 2012, would not send/receive emails even though shown as connected.

This was despite WLM being included in trusted programs of ZA. It blocked emails to/from using local Bigpond ISP and both Yahoo Mail accounts and Bigpond accounts on WLM. Both Yahoo Mail and Bigpond web sites are working on EI10.

A simple work around is to disable ZA and then emails can be sent/received. But that's a bit primitive and a pain in the butt, and possibly dangerous even though phishing filter is turned on in security of WLM.

Has anyone encountered this problem and found a fix.

I'm using Ex7ForW8 which has restored the original Win7 Orb Start Menu and switches off Metro Start Screen. So WLM is used on desktop.

A:Zone Alarm blocks Win Live Mail 2012

zonealarm has traditionally been very late and very buggy. i used to be a huge zonealarm fan but now that I've adapted to windows firewall (after it took them forever to make it compatible with Windows 7), I don't see a need to go back. there's no zone alarm feature that's not in windows firewall as far as I can tell. actually, I do remember that it was easier to create a rule on the fly with zone alarm. that's the main advantage.

A:microsoft windows live mail Not compatible with New Email systems

the email I received

Dear user,

In a few weeks, we will be making some changes to our email services that might impact your, @hotmail, @live, or @msn email account. Those changes will prevent your email from being delivered to the Windows Live Mail 2012 application you use.

In order to continue using Windows Live Mail 2012 to send and receive email for your account, you need to install the latest update published here.

If you use Windows Live Mail 2012 on Windows 8, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10, we recommend that you switch to the built in Mail app in Windows to stay connected and get the latest feature updates on Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

Windows Live Essentials 2009 and 2011 are not supported anymore, and you will need to update to Windows 8/8.1 or Windows 10 and use the Mail app, or use To learn more about the Mail app, please click here.

We also recommend all Windows Live mail users on Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 to upgrade to Windows 10 and use the built in Mail application to stay connected and get the latest feature updates.

We suggest saving this email so you can refer to it later.

Thanks for your understanding and continued use.

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.

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.
