Since updating to Windows Live Mail 2011, we can't send mail from Windows Explorer and get Live Services popup
Posted on 2010-11-18
We have a simple Windows 7 workstation that uses Windows Live Mail for e-mail. Primarily, the user will use it to pick a picture out of my pictures and use the "e-mail" button in Windows Explorer that invokes the default e-mail program (in this case Windows Mail) and send the pictures out.
Since the update for Windows Live 2011, we now have a problem. Windows Live Mail 2011 works fine if you go into the actual program. However, trying to e-mail from Windows Explorer prompts a pop-up to sign into Windows Live Services. Upon canceling out of that, the e-mail never goes out. If we check the outbox in Windows Live Mail 2011, the e-mail mesage is there, but won't every go anywhere.
Anyone have any insight? Thx!
