Having a problem with Windows Live Mail lock up shortly after the start.

Having a problem with Windows Live Mail lock up shortly after the start. When I start the Task Manager to end the process, it sometimes freezes and the only way to solve the problem is to disconnect which forces the profile to close. Assuming a corrupted profile, I followed the instructions of Windows support to fix a corrupted profile and copied all the files except ntuser.*. When I try to paste them into the new user profile (all profiles are admins), I get the error message asking if I want to leave to proceed. When I click on continue, all THE files in the profile block "corrupt" to the new one, including ntuser.*, that I was not choosing. Why? If the files are rewritten empty? Tried 3 times, same result. Please notify.

I think I found it! I went in the Windows Live Forum and found a thread that looked like my problem. He suggested going to msconfig and take off Live Mail list start. I couldn't find it on the list, but the top element was "" default EXE"something of an unknown manufacturer. I took it out of the startup list, and Live Mail works again! Thanks for your help!

  • Problems with Windows Live Mail 2011

    It should be clear to everyone by now that Windows Live Essencials 2011 is full of bugs and doesn't work as well as the previous version. My problem has to do with the Live ID Signin Assistant. Conflicts of this program to be able to view the network shares on the WDTV Live.

    I used Windows Live Mail for years and have been happy with the program. With this version, it was possible to uninstall the Live ID Signon companion in Add and remove some programs dialog. Apparently there is no way to uninstall this program with the 2011 version.

    Access my network shares is more important to me than to use all Windows Live programs, so unless there is a way to resolve the conflict with the Assistant of Signon, (such as uninstalling this specific program), I'll be forced to remove all Windows Live my computer programs and start using a different e-mail program. It would be unfortunate, because the habit altogether by using Windows Live Mail.

    I'd appreciate any help or advice on this issue.

  • BIG problems with Windows Live Mail

    I am running Windows Live Mail on Windows 7 Professional to access my AOL email accounts, which are on a basis of IMAP.  I use a laptop brand new have a 1 TB HDD and 8 GB of RAM, so the size and speed are not a problem.  The first annoying problem I have is that whenever I close by Mail, I get a message saying that it is the purge of records.  Five seconds later, I get an error message from the server is offline, so the work has not ended.  Then, I need to close the windows.

    Secondly, when I reply to messages, sometimes it takes 5 to 10 seconds or more for the wheel stops.  If there is an attachment to the original email, the message that I send doesn't go away, even after they are sent, which makes me wonder if it was sent.  There are also an excessively long time to delete messages.

    I've used several other e-mail programs in recent years, including Outlook Express and have never encountered problems in using the same accounts AOL and format.  Are there changes I need to do, or are these problems known glitches between Windows Live Mail and an AOL IMAP account?

    1. the presentation of Softpedia pick the ' shortcut is at least 6 or 7 versions there is (and has been removed from the program there are at least 5 versions)-ignore
    2. the google image search is a mixture of old and some showing the latest version of civil (2009), which he has had 3 improvements. The most recent is WLM 14.8089.0726. To determine if you have the latest version on the top menu, click on help/topic/Microsoft Windows Live Mail
    -If you do not see the menu, press the Alt key - it is used to toggle.  The menu can be disabled permanently by clicking the square to the left of the "question mark" at the top right. Scroll down and select the Menu display.
    3. do you intend to post in the Windows Live Mail Desktop using WLM newsgroup... If so, we can say your version by message properties. If you continue to post via the web interface, we cannot... so the earlier suggestions to use the discussion group showing the ability of WLM.  Knowing the version of WLM can make a difference in the problem and the answer.
    4. the configuration for the "purge" messages associated with an IMAP account can be found in WLM on its "Maintenance" tab
    What are your settings for the two elements of "Purge" (Deleted messages) and Newsgroup?  Consider uncheck both
    5 other things you should consider doing (temporarily) in WLM to rule out any automatic handshake between the AOL IMAP server and WLM
    -Uncheck the send and receive Messages at startup; Uncheck the check Messages every x minutes (Tools/Options/general tab)
    -Uncheck all options on the tab connection (Tools/Options/connections) and click on stop signing if the button/option is present.
    -Uncheck "use deleted items folder for IMAP (Tools/Options/Advanced) accounts - this option has been know to interfere with the"Purge"for AOL accounts"
    -Set the counter to 1 (Tools/Options/Advanced/Maintenance tab) - compact the database during shutdown.  Make sure that you are in e-mail mode, then take it out by file/Work Offline / file / exit.  WLM should encourage compact... agree and don't interrupt. Once that is done, open WLM, file/work online and repeat the test.
    6 turn off email scanning in you client Antivirus and other applications (additional, firewall security software etc it email scanning is done)
    7. If you are connected via cable or a DSL connection set up Internet Explorer (or other browser never establish a connection.
    -If you do not use IE, please specify which browser.

    Report any success of failure after doing the above (you can try them both, or test each incrementally.

    It would be much appreciated if you could communicate the results in a new message using WLM as your news reader in Windows Live Mail Desktop forum

  • Problem with Windows Live Mail 2011 to scan

    When I use either my printer to scan a document, cartoon, etc. to send e-mail (Windows Live Mail 2011), the scan works fine, but when I try to attach the message to send to a recipient, the scanned image was cropped (up to the size of a photo?) and space of the image is now asking for 'enter the name of the album', 'slide show', etc. - which suggests that it is an activity of picture which is not.  All I want to do is scan a document for emailing, a process that worked flawlessly w. Windows Live Mail 2010.  How can I overcome this problem?

  • Problems with Windows Live Mail send and receive e-mails


    I am running Windows 7 Home Premium and I used Windows Live Mail 2012 (WLM) for many years without any problems, and I prefer it much to Outlook.com. I have my own personal e-mail account and three other accounts available in WLM. I can send and receive emails from three other accounts, but my own account keeps giving the error message:

    Can't send or receive messages on behalf of Clive Read.
    Server error: 4402
    Server: 'https://mail.services.live.com/DeltaSync_v2.0.0/Sync.aspx '.
    Windows Live Mail error ID: 0x8DE00002

    That being said, I can actually send emails, but cannot receive them-weird!

    I spent several hours internet research solutions, including Microsoft pages, forums, etc and later of the end of "solutions" offered in 2013. Many of the suggestions I've tried, without success. I ran other controls have shown that initpki.dll is absent, but I don't know if it's possible causes and, if this is the case, my attempts to locate, re - save or download one have failed.

    My version of WLM doesn't have a "Tools" link, and I can't seem to find where the incoming and outgoing port settings. It gets really tedious, so I'd be grateful for all solutions to update to my problem and perhaps an explanation as to what may have caused it in the first place.

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    My Win Live Mail client is hung up trying to send a message that is no longer the right address. Just, he is sitting there to send the message and will not disappear. It blocks all access to the program Live Mail itself to fix. I am at a loss to know what to do because it will not allow me access to the program.

    Verifier check to work offline, open the Outbox and delete the message.
