    Live Mail in Windows 10

    You could try this.

    *Warning, you will lose all the emails stored locally unless they are in Windows Live Mail "Storage folders"*

    • Open Windows Live Mail
    • Right click on you account name and Remove account
    • Restart Windows Live Mail
    • Set the account up again and see if it works

    If that still doesn't work, try this:

    *Warning, you will lose all the emails stored locally including those in Windows Live Mail "Storage folders"*

    • Close Windows Live Mail
    • Open File Explorer, Go View > Options > in Folder Options window click View and Select "Show hidden files, folders & drives
    • Navigate to c:\Users\<your user name>\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail
    • Copy the Windows Live Mail folder somewhere else in case you want to revert. Also, if you have mail stored in Windows Live Mail "Storage folders" you can reinstate that folder later
    • Delete the Windows Live Mail folder
    • Start Windows Live Mail and set up your account
