Windows Live Mail not adding all selected Forwards

Using Windows Live Mail as a pop client I have a need to forward 15 or 20 emails at one time to another person.  Was using Outlook Express and had no problems doing this.  Just moved to Windows 8 and now using Windows Live Mail and it seems to be limiting the number of forwards.  We select all 15 messages, right click and choose forward.  When the new email window pops up only 5 of the emails are attached.  Looked through options, but not seeing anything that applies.  Really need help with this.

You are the only one with the problem but no one seems to have the answer either.

What about a different email client like thunderbird?

I've thought about that, but actually the end user is not me, but a user with limited skills.  Transitioning from Outlook Express to Windows Live Mail was a big jump for him.  I originally was going to take him to Thunderbird, but couldn't make the jump.

Just tried it, works flawless, even with 50 messages forwarded.
Could it be that you simply did not scroll inside the attachment section? Because on first sight, it looks as if there were only a few attached, then I noticed the scroll function.

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

Could also be an attachment limit.. the 5 add up to 25mb or such.. or they just plain text/html messages with no size?

I'm going to close this question and split the points.  Here's what I've determined.  It appears that the problem only exists when forwarding emails that have the exact same subject line.  I've done others with his account and can attach MANY emails and forward.  Thank you for all your feedback and suggestions.
