Windows Live Mail is the successor to Outlook Express, a discontinued email and news client bundled with several versions of Microsoft Windows, from Windows 98 to Windows Server 2003, and available for Windows 95 and Mac OS 9. In Windows Vista, Outlook Express was superseded by Windows Mail, then again by Windows Live Mail as separate software. Outlook Express is a different application from Microsoft Outlook. Beginning with Windows Vista Microsoft included Windows Mail, based on large parts of Outlook Express source code.

I have Windows Live Mail (2002) for some years and am happy with it. However one annoying feature: When i open the program the Sign-In Box pops up. I sign in and cick  the 'Remember me and Sign me in Automatically'  box. However it never works. Each time I open the program I am presented with the Sign In Box and have to sign in. I attack a screenshot of the program with the Sign In Box displayed.  How to stop it appearing.

Hello Experts

I have a client whose Windows 7 laptop failed (System board).  I got his new computer (Windows 10) and he can't get email.  Microsoft doesn't offer an email program and Live Mail can no longer be downloaded.

Any ideas how to get that  data onto his new machine and make it usable?

I can access his data on the old hard drive, but I can;t  use an export command as I don't have an email client that will work with Windows Live data.

Thanks

A customer of mine called me this morning and says she has a hard time reading her email messages, dates and the subject lines, ETC and would like to have the fonts bigger and in bold.  Can someone explain how to do this?

I have an older computer with Windows 10 using Windows Live Mail.

I need to bring the folders and messages into Outlook 2010.

When I do an "export", I can select Microsoft Exchange to get toward Outlook.
But it never asks: where should I put the result?
I did set up a new mail profile but I don't ever see a connection and no new .pst file either.

What should I be doing?

My OS is win 10 Prof 64 bit and I have an Office 365 Business essential account, and use Outlook owa.   Lately, some of the buttons, like the "Reply", or "Forward" do not seem to work when I am in an email.  I tried rebooting but to no avail.
My  email is msn the free account.
Maybe I am logging thru the wrong url.  I sometimes use : outlook.live.com/owa and have tried also : live.com.  But given my above scenario, which is the correct url to login into my account.  My msn email account is installed in the outlook owa.
Thank u for your advise.

MS shows they discontinued support for it on January 10th, and now I can't find anywhere to download it.  Does anyone know where and how I can still get it for my insistent customer?  Or, if it was one of those where the installer could have been "saved" rather than just "run", maybe someone has a copy of it??  TIA

Windows 10, Dell Inspiron 15.
Windows Live Mail 2012.

When I click on the Windows Live Mail  icon I get a box asking me to SIGN IN.
I sign in  correctly with my Microsoft email and password. The box disappears and I can view my email etc.
However I cannot stop this box from appearing every time I open up Windows Live Mail.
Every time I am asked for my password. I have clicked the option: ‘remember me and sign me in automatically’ . But it makes no difference. Why am I continually asked to Sign In?
I enclose a screenshot of the Sign In Box which won’t go automatic
(One peculiar thing, which may have a bearing: I notice that If I don’t sign in  and simply chose the cancel option the Box disappears and find  I can use the program without any problem, just as if I had signed in).

A client of mine has deleted some folders in Windows Live Mail by mistake. I think the folder was an imported folder called Local & located under Storage Folders with a dozen or so subfoldrs where he's being filing various emails to keep his inbox clean.
I had a look C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail but they aren't there.
They're not in deleted items or the recycle bin.
There are no previous versions to recover when right clicking on the Windows Live Mail folder.
Any suggestions as to how i might recover them?
I'm running a full disk recovery at the moment with File Scavenger so will see how that goes.
He's running Windows 10.

Windows Live Mail is downloading duplicate messages.  There is a ton of stuff on the

I have a client who saved all his emails of many years to folders in Outlook Express.  I was able to restore the folders and the .DBX files to his new Windows 10 workstation.  However as we all know you cannot use Outlook Express on anything above Microsoft Windows XP.  The only way I know of would be to install Windows XP with Service Pack 3 that includes Outlook Express on a workstation and convert or forward all of his hundreds of emails to his current Office 2016?

Any way of doing this easier would be great!

Many thanks in advance for your help.

I have created a .csv file of my Windows Live Mail address book and cannot import into Verizon mail.

Keep getting message about either a corrupt file or format not matching.  Of course, there is no choice for Windows Live Mail.

Suggestions?

I have around 9000 emails in my inbox.  I can only scroll one full page which brings me back to May 2016.  How do I delete that ton of emails prior to this date?  It appears that I am unable to move to prior pages of emails.  My email address is an @sympatico.ca address and I used to be able to access it with Hotmail.  Your advice will be appreciated.
thanks,

If I use MS Outlook at work, what is the best way to inform people of my planned time off? Would I schedule a meeting request and invite those who need to be informed, or should I schedule an appointment?

In a previous post here:

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28980200/Cablevision-email-problem-when-sending-from-inside-Cablevision-Optonline.html


it was suggested I use a outgoing email relaying service to get around having a dynamic IP address that's on blacklists.

I set that up for a friend's gmail account using windows live mail email client (and is set up as IMAP) and it;s working great.... except that her sent mail isn't showing up in her sent folder (which being imap, is on the gmail server).  I totally understand why it's not working, but realize that's an issue for this and even for someone using exchange / office 365 - if you aren't sending  out through the exchange / o365 server, it doesn't see it to know to save an email.

But is there a work around to keep the sent emails in the imap (on the gmail server) configuration?  BCC yourself the emails and then manually drag / drop into sent folder?

thanks!

There are so many Microsoft e-mail programs so the one I have is the former Hotmail.
I have no idea what Live is and OneDrive for photos is the worst.

So, this messages pops open making Outlook inconvenient. It happens many times a day but not 100% of the time and maybe only 50% of the time.
It says I need to click on a message to open it.

I already clicked on the message.

a friend has cablevision optonline home internet service with dynamic DHCP.

She's been using Windows Live Mail on her windows 7 machine to access her optonline (OOL) and gmail email accounts.

About a month ago, she wasn't able to send mail with Windows Live app using the optonline account: the OOL server wouldn't accept the mail.  And when she sent from gmail to OOL users via live mail app, it was blocked by Cablevision.

When using the gmail and OOL webmail, everything worked perfect. Calling OOL tech support they said one of her machines was infected with malware and they blocked her outbound sending ability.

we had checked her machine and told them it was clean. OOL then removed the block they said.

The problem came back recently.  She had a number for OOL shared services which is a 2nd tier part of support it seems.  But they were no help, blaming winfdows live app for the problem.  We installed thunderbird with the same results.  It would appear that her IP address was on RBLs which is what we saw. But OOL said they don't use the RBLs that we saw she was on.

I had her turn off her cable modem last night and this morning when powering it on, she got a different IP address.  But that one is on several RBLs also.

Then I started checking other IPs in those ranges and those are also on RBLs

would anyone have any advice? Are OOL IP address ranges automatically on some RBLs?  I can't see why or when these IP addresses were put on the RBLs.

or someone …

Experts, I have a PC running Win7 Home premium, and am using Windows Mail 2012 for email client with a POP3 account.
Has been working great for years, no recent changes made.

In my inbox, there is one message received that repeats it self every time the mail client does a send/receive (2 mins). In short time there are 100's of this same message in the inbox. I checked the mail header and they all contain the same message id and timestamp. So, I doubt its the sender, and something between my client at the mail server. I continue to receive other mail messages normally. Just this one message is 'stuck'.  How can I correct this?

We are converting mbox (Google Mail) files to PSTs and importing into Exchange 2016.  After importing end users will be using either OWA, Microsoft Mail, or Apple Mail Client to access their mail.  However during testing we are noticing in OWA and MS Mail that the imported PST goes into a clunky folder called "All mail Including Spam and Trash".  

1. Is there anyway to convert and import maintaining the original mail/folder file structure from Google Mail.
2. Is there anyway to improve on the clunky ability to view and access this imported PST on the administration side before the end user has to start digging through and complaining about the setup?

Issue: Mail changes not filtering down to two separate Outlook 2016 installations
When the end user deletes or changes mail messages on his I-phone or Outlook 2013 laptop the said changes never make it to his remaining computers with Outlook 2016 installed. The changes however are replicated to the Outlook 2013 install

All computers are running in Outlook cached mode.
The .OST files have been removed and recreated
Exchange 2010 is the mail server.
This is the only user affected
