  1. Windows live mail


    Several years ago I had a problem with live mail after an update.

    I cannot remember how I solved it.

    After a Windows update on 13 Feb I lost the ability to send emails on my Pc and iPad. Incoming is fine.

    The message I get is that the settings are wrong with the code 08800CCC79.

    When I went into the mail account on the iPad the password seemed to be missing.

    Having re-entered this I can send again.

    But the PC will still not work.

    I have tried many solutions, some my own and some from the internet but I have steared clear of commercial downloads.

    I have re-entered all the accont data, taken the account out an re-instated it, tried to take the PC back to before the update and through the settings files tried to find a previous version but allwithout success.

    Any ideas what else I can do ?

    I know I can move to something like Outlook but it bugs me that I cannot solve this.

    Chris

    Windows LIve Mail

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    It is possible that Mail.MsMessageStore file was corrupted. Please follow the steps below on how to repair the file:


      • Which is the email client that you use to access your emails? Windows live mail or through mail app? Or do you access email via your Web Browser?

      • If you use email client, what type of email account? (i.e. POP, IMAP, Exchange or other...)

    I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps if you access it through Windows live mail.



    1. Restart the computer (this is to ensure that Live Mail is fully shut down, and that none of it's components are in use when the computer starts)



    2. Press Windows+ X and select command prompt(Admin).

    3. Copy the following (press Ctrl+C):



    esentutl.exe -d "%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\Mail.MSMessageStore"



    Note: the "" are necessary



    4. Right click in the command prompt Window, and select Paste, so you now see the following:



    C:\Windows\system32>esentutl.exe -d "%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\Mail.MSMessageStore"



    5. Press enter. esentutl will now defragment the Live Mail database file



    6. Once done, you can close the command prompt, and restart the PC again



    If the issue persists, please notify us.



    Thanks.
