    Good to know, though I already had those accounts onto Mail and off old app, just left my own domain account, which works ok in mail too, though I'd like to see some more improvements to the app...

    Windows Live Mail 2012 will not connect to Outlook.com

    hate Outlook Mail

    Check this out ->
    Windows Live Mail 2012 will not connect to Outlook.com


    Based on the website "Starting June 30, 2016, Outlook.com accounts (@outlook.com, @hotmail.com, @msn.com, and @live.com email addresses) will start being updated and will no longer work in
    Windows Live Mail'

    I think only the email accounts ending in @outlook.com, @hotmail.com, @live.com, or @msn.com that are powered by Outlook.com are affected by these changes.

    So I think you can still continue to use Windows Live Mail to connect to other email services via IMAP or POP3.

    Windows Live Mail 2012 is not going to have any further development. They ( Microsoft Support ) might not help me with the problem I might encounter in my WLM in Windows 10 but I can go online and find help here in Microsoft Community.

    Is that why I have been getting this error message for last few days ?


    Windows Live Mail 2012 will not connect to Outlook.com [​IMG]



    I have been using WLM 2012 to configure 1 pop account ( Bell.net account ), and 2 live accounts ( outlook.com and live.ca accounts ).

    I just click OK and ignore the message.
    All my accounts are still working correctly.
    It's no big deal. I'll just delete the live accounts from my WLM, go online for my live accounts.

  6. MS does it again!

    The implication is that ALL eMail clients (other than Mail App or Outlook) will not be able to connect to Outlook.com

    Rather than force users to MS products, they should continue to support industry STANDARDS (POP3, IMAP) and add their proprietary protocol as an additional option.

    C'est la vie!

    Also you can enter as many e-mail addresses as you like
    Then you can use the Link to link all your e-mails into one inbox which you can name it anything you like.
    Mine is my Username
    When I click on my inbox all mail from all my other mail is in that one box
    It is just the junk or spam boxes and deleted boxes you have to empty one at a time

    Just today I created a brand new @Outlook.com address and set it up using IMAP in Outlook 2007. Will this change affect that?

    Server name: imap-mail.outlook.com
    Port: 993
    Encryption method: SSL



    Server name: smtp-mail.outlook.com
    Port: 587
    Encryption method: TLS

    The last time I tried the Mail App, it was cumbersome. Since I don't use Outlook or Hotmail it shouldn't affect Windows Live Mail 2012.*Wink

    Gutted... WLM2012 just worked so perfectly well.
    Hate Thunderbird.
    Can't use the Mail App because I'm on 7.
    Don't want to PAY to READ MY EMAIL.

    Windows Live Mail 2012 will not connect to Outlook.com

    So, what are our non-Microsoft options?
    Will any third party email client support the new Outlook system?
    I really dislike Thunderbird, so I'm looking for other options.

    I like eM Client, it looks and feels like WLM 2011/2012. Only draw back is; the free version only allows for 2 email accounts but the paid version allows unlimited accounts. I also like and use Incredimail.....fun for animated emails.

    Alternatively, you could use any of the web-based email client....like Gmail and outlook.com.

    I would strongly, strongly advise everyone to stay away from Incredimail.
