    Windows Live Mail wonky after latest Windows update


    Hello,
    I am currently using Windows 10 (OS Build 19041.508) and it did an automatic update over the weekend.
    Since then, Windows Live Mail has not been working correctly.
    Here are the symptoms:
    1) Opens fine and downloads headers, Body of email is missing replaced with the following message
    "Message could not be displayed
    Windows Live Mail encountered an unexpected problem while displaying this message. Check your computer for low memory or low disk space and try again."
    The drive this program is on is only 25% full and I have 32GB memory.
    I also downloaded Mozilla ThunderBird into the same drive, and it ran OK
    Also tried uninstalling and reinstalling WLM, but problem remained.
    I have WLM configured for my Gmail and Hotmail accounts, problem occurs on both accounts.

    2) cannot send any mail. Every time I try I get the following error:
    The Message could not be sent. A problem has occurred. Please try again

    3) cannot export old messages. Every time I try I get the following error:
    The message export has failed

    Sadly, since this is a EOL program, there may be no solution available.
    Any help would be appreciated, Thank You in advance.

    :)

    Windows Live Mail by Windows 7

    Dear All,

    Core i3 with Windows 7 Home. Recently swapped the HD
    due to crash & reinstalled Win 7 including WLM (Windows
    Live Mail). I encountered 3 problems while configuring
    my account & restoring the (previously exported) inbox.

    1/ A family member of mine used my system to check his e-mail.
    To do this he created a second account in WLM in order to read
    his hotmail e-mail traffic. I have now deleted the account but
    when WLM is launched i repeatedly get a login window
    containing the details of the family member's e-mail address
    instead of my details. How can i clear this and make sure that
    when WLM is launched only my e-mail addres is visible?

    2/ Mijn account is configured to remember its password,
    and enable immediate access of my mails.
    Despite of this i get a login window when WLM is started.
    When i fill out e-mailaddress & password and press enter
    the account is not recognised and WLM pretends that e-mail
    address or password are wrong. Nevertheless i can see the headers
    of my e-mails and if i close the login window i can also access & read
    the e-mails.. How can i remove the login window permanently?

    3/ I'd like to disable the option "leave copy on server" Where can i find
    this option in WLM?

    Thanks in advance,
    Dilbert

    Windows Live Mail wonky after latest Windows update

    Windows Mail

    Yes, Windows mail (on Vista) is almost identical to Windows Live Mail (which I use here at work on XP), and have multiple accounts set up.

    Windows Live Mail has one of the best out-of-the-box spam detectors I have ever seen in an e-mail client, and of course, it's free.

    The one thing I like about WLM over Windows Mail on Vista, is that WLM does not use popup box verification when you delete the entire junk mailbox (it does, however, on the deleted mailbox). If I hit the delete key for a whole mailbox, I mean it. Honestly, you don't have to ask me if I am sure about what I am doing.
