    switched from Mail to WLM


    Hi All

    Just for your info

    Since today I haven't been able to open some email in the Mail app in Windows 10. It got to the point that I had to switch back to using WLM. All is working like a dream now.

    Cheers

    :)

    Import mail to windows 10

    You can install WLM on Windows 10. Export all messages and contacts first then Import them into new WLM on Win 10.

    But facing same problem and with no support now for WLM, I switched to Mozzilla Thunderbird for both Windows 7 and Windows 10. It is a free download and is able to import the mail and contacts you exported from WLM.

    Thunderbird is quite similar to WLM, so once installed and configured, you will like it!

    The Windows 10 Mail program is a joke unless you have very few emails and just one account.

    ADDED: You don't mention how you email is now configured in WLM. If it is POP3, then you might consider switching it to IMAP before you transfer to Windows 10. With IMAP, all messages are stored on your ISP servers. When you create the new account in Thunderbird
    (or even Win10 Mail), the messages will automatically download. Downloaded POP messages stored on your computer won't sync like that, but they will if you move them into the new IMAP account on existing Win 7 WLM.

    If you are already using IMAP, just set up your new mail program in Win10 and the mail will all magically be there!

    In both cases, you need to export your contacts from WLM and then Thunderbird can import them. Various other ways if you use w10 mail.

  3. Mail rules in windows 10 Mail

    I switched to Thunderbird. It is old and not being updated but it does receive security and some other fixes from time to time. It is sort of a pain to import from WLM but it integrates with all known (at least by me) E-Mail formats and providers.

    I upgraded from W8.1 with WLM 2012 and it's working great in W10 so will stay with it.

  6. What I had to use here was Windows Essentials 2012 which is likely the same. I did get the mail app running ok with another WLM account used for that however. Just remember to leave the Windows Live Messenger box unchecked if you see that option! WLM is DOA! MS went with the Skype option when signing for any new accounts at outlook.com that replaces the old live.com for new accounts.

    Just for clarification we are talking about Windows Live Mail which is a part of Windows Essentials 2012. Using "WLM" does get confusing as there was Windows Live Messenger also which has been discontinued. I still use Photo Gallery and Movie Maker which is still included in Windows Essentials 2012 and still available from MS.

    You don't even need to download the Windows Photo Viewer separately. Simply follow the instructions in the guide for this That's a simple reg tweak you download there. in order to see the WPViewer restored in 10. How to Restore Windows Photo View in WIndows 10

    As for the use of any mail app I always had the Live Mail app pinned to the task bar in 7 while I went for the Essentials to pin it in 10. without any issues. When messenger was dumped out of the blue having only received the last minute MS mail about that I lost contact with a few people before getting back to them about Skype. The Skype paid subscription provides a bit more then the freebie however.
