Hi,

See attached. This started happening a few days ago. I can get at my mail thru webmail.

Why is this happening?

Thanks

I think you really to do a full anti-virus and malware scan on your computer because you have too many things going wrong.

To all,

I did a COMPLETE virus scan. 6 "dangers" found, all removed.

I restarted Windows Live Mail; still an issue.

I will reboot to see if it goes away.

Thanks

rkorts--Since this started only a few days ago, run System Restore.

If no help, see Kathrina_G's post here.

If that does not work, uninstall and reinstall WLM.

And if that does not work, run Repair Install.

I tried system restore & repairing Windows Live Essentials.

Still the same.

If I uninstall & reinstall, don't I loose my address book, inbox & sent messages?

Thanks

rkorts--If you un\reinstall WLM you will lose the email messages but not the contacts.  Here are details and a suggestion how to save the messages.

It just started working again today. Crazy. I had saved my inbox & sent items & had it on my list to do the reinstall.

Yeah, but it will probably return. It ISN'T magic.
