    Windows Live Mail help, please.

    I have a friend who migrated from Outlook Express to Windows Live Mail some time ago and has since resisted advice to move to a new Program.
    (His OS is Windows 10 Home 64-bit, currently up to date).
    Until recently, all was well, but now many of his older emails either won't open at all, or open as a random Amazon email.
    The newer emails, under his 'normal' Tree of Folders are fine, the affected ones seem to be only those listed beneath the 'Storage Folders' section.

    I seem to remember reading about a command line prompt to attempt a fix to the mail database, but can't now find it.

    If anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate any advice at all - even if it's 'you're flogging a dead horse'.
