    Windows Live Mail 2012 constantly crashes in Windows 10...


    This is my first Post, so apologies if it is in the wrong Forum ...*Confused

    I have come here after receiving zero help from Microsoft's own Help channels, for Windows 10!*Mad

    I completed what appeared to be a relatively trouble-free upgrade from Windows 7 to 10, but have now found that whenever I try to attach or insert anything into an email with WLM 2012, it immediately says 'Not responding' in Task Manager. My only option is to 'End task' in Task Manager, thus losing my partially written email.

    I'm sure you will need further info, but as I'm not sure what to include I've kept it short.

    :)

    wow can I get copy of windows live2012

    Windows live mail 2012 was part of windows essentials 2012.

    Windows Essentials 2012 suite reached end of support on January 10, 2017.

    It is no longer available for download.

    in addition Windows Live Mail 2012 does not support the new APIs required to provide full synchronisation with Outlook.com

  3. Export archived messages from Windows Live Mail 2012 to the Windows 10 Mail app

    I purchased my all-in-one several years ago with Windows 7 (I believe) and it came with Windows Live Mail. Shortly after I purchased the computer I received an upgrade to Windows 10. I have been using Windows Live Mail 2012 for years now and have created
    multiple 'local' archive folders for messages I wanted to save. Can I export these archived messages so they can be opened in the current Windows 10 Mail app? Windows Live Mail 2012 only gives me the option to export to Outlook (which I don't have) or to
    another Live Mail account. I would like to export these archived messages from Live Mail 2012 into the Windows 10 Mail app.

    I can't immediately help here but if you do get stuck consider eM client

    Hi robgr,

    Do you mean consider changing my email program?

    This seems a little crazy as both the OS & WLM are Microsoft programs, so if they can't get them to 'play nicely' together, what hope is there for any of us?

    I completely agree but past experience of MS has taught me it's less painful just to use something else where possible*Smile
    I often find that the alternatives not only actually work but are often more fully featured etc.

    I also continue to experience the symptoms described by the OP. As suggested I installed EM Client, and like Windows Live Mail, it also locked up when I attempted to attach a file to an e-mail ...

    Seems to me like it's an issue larger than just Windows Live Mail.

    I should add that at least em Client allows me to successfully click-through a link embedded in an e-mail, whereas Windows Live Mail does not.

    What is 'eM client'? Do you just mean any other email desktop program, or is there one called eM client?

    Hi ukdeejay, I can add that I have used eM Client for some time and right from the beginning of WinX without any issues whatsoever that I've found, it's sound as a pound (integrates well with Gmail)

    UKdeejay if you will go to Control Panel > Uninstall a program and select Windows Essentials, you will be presented with an option to uninstall or Repair all programs. Try the Repair option. I use WLM and it has no problems on my install so it isn't a compatibility issue.

    Clicking through links in Windows Live mail is now functional for me. However, I still have issues (program becomes unresponsive) when attaching files to an e-mail. Most notably if I have two file attachments included in an e-mail and opt to open one from within that e-mail (prior to sending). I most often include .pdf and .jpg files, and can reproduce the unresponsive condition when opening either file type from within the unsent e-mail.

    Edit: perhaps I should add that I'm running the Windows 10 64-bit. Windows Live Mail is 32-bit.

    Question for essenbe, do you know if there's a difference between using IMAP or POP? Best Buy told my client WLM won't work with Windows 10. Her isp is pop only. I had it working for 2 months. Curious if you have any thoughts in that scenario? Thanks
