windows live mail email account for btconnect.com - not Office 365 account
Hello

Opereting system - Windows 7 Home Premium.

I use windows live mail version 9.

The account on there at the moment is an Office 365 account for btconnect.com,

I wish to set up two other email accounts which must not be Office 365 accounts but still using btconnect settings.

Can you provide full setup details including server details and details of port settings.

Any help would be much appreciated .

I held out and downloaded Windows 10 on the last day it was going to be free. I?ve been having some email issues ever since. Some have been solved; one has been a toothache.

Although Microsoft wants to wean people off of Windows Live Mail in favor of the built in mail interface in Windows 10, I want to keep using WLM.

I need two email accounts set up on WLM. One I have set, a IMAP account (a Time Warner Roadrunner account) which is working properly and the other an outlook.com email account which isn?t. (All the settings on the two accounts are IDENTICAL with the exception of the server names)

The OUTLOOK account is also set a IMAP and the setting are correct as I can send and receive emails?both properly going through the proper server and being able to be read in my hand held device and on the outlook.com web site.

The problem is I can?t get folders to populate in WLM on that account, so I can?t see (read) incoming mail from there, nor do I have a SENT folder to verify that my emai ?went.?

The step which I can not get to happen in to ?DOWNLOAD FOLDERS?, i.e. the ?Inbox?, ?Drafts?, ?Sent Items?, ?Junk E-mail?, and ?Deleted Items? folders.

There is a link to click to download those folders (?Windows Live Mail needs to download the folders before you can read the messages in this account. To download the folders, click DOWNLOAD link?)but it churns and churns and churns then finally times out with an error message that reads:

If you're using IMAP it can happen when there's a communication issue with your eMail provider.

Hello

I am new here and just purchased a laptop with Windows 7 on it and Windows Live Mail already installed.
My previous laptop (still up and running, but mainly just to check emails now) had Outlook Express and was set up many years ago when it was new.
Do I need to completely close down or delete the Outlook Express before I open up a new account in Windows Live Mail with the same email address?
I've tried opening up and putting server details, username/password into Windows Live Mail - and it's accepted it.
However when I go to send/receive mail - it keeps asking me to log in and give my password, and that it's incorrect - when I know it is actually correct?

Am I doing something wrong here? Or how can I open up my emails on my new laptop via Windows Live Mail?

I have Microsoft Security Essentials running as my antivirus protection.

I am hopeful I am doing something very silly and someone might be able to help me with this, as I'm not very computer minded - simple instructions please if anyone has suggestions.

Thanks in advance.

Since you're using Windows 7 for WLM and OE for XP they can't simultaneously be on the same PC. However both programs can be set up on their respective PCs at the same time; just keep in mind that if you download your mail on one PC you won't see it on the other afterwards unless you choose the option to "keep mail on server".

If OE is working, look carefully at every tab of Account Properties and set up WLM the same way. WLM is the replacement for OE for Windows 7 and will work if set up the same.

I want to keep all the emails both in and out that have accumulated over the past year or so preferably where they are now without exporting elsewhere.

Mitchell mate I have gone over to Thunderbird - it can be configured just like WLM (GUI) and as long as you are keeping your accounts - mine for example are hotmail and the local provider bigpond - TB will import all the mails I used to have in WLM.

Hi,

Upgraded from Windows 7 to Win 10 and was loving it (was). Saw there was a mail app and thought that would be pretty handy. Signed in and since then, I have to log in to my PC as my email address and password.

I don't want that.

How do I revert my existing user back to a non-Windows live user, with a normal, local account and password?

I am happy to not use the Mail app if that's what it takes, but my concern is that the profile I have now has all my icons and docs and stuff and I don't want to go through the hassle of copying over the profile.

There must be a way to undo this change, but I can't find it.

Hello!
My mum has got a new computer, and it has Vista on it and therefore has Windows Live Mail. She is used to outlook express and I just check my emails from a website rather than a programme like this, so i am not accustom to them. Live Mail will not let her sign in to her account. It says the email or password is incorrect. Both are correct as they will work on the website. I have checked all the property setting and they are correct and even tried setting the incoming settings to private as suggested on the website. I have now noticed it will send emails if i go to start then hover over windows live mail, then select send new message. This will send a message from her email. Yet when Live Mail is opened up it and send and receive pressed it says password/email incorrect.
Any suggestions please.

I installed Windows 8 on Christmas Day and I skipped the email account setup parts. I never used any APPS yet, in fact I removed everything app-related from my start screen including notifications, etc.

I have used the Classic Shell so far, but today I thought I'd set up the Live email account login.

While I was setting up the app account I kept getting emails from the live account manager to confirm what I was doing and I confirmed each one.

The last thing it asked to 'Trust this PC'. I did so and my machine name appeared on my Microsoft account profile page under "Trusted PC".

But when I restarted I could no longer log in with my local account or the new Live email account.

I logged in as Administrator and saw that my local account name was changed from my username to <[email protected]>, my live account ID. It would not allow Administrator to change the account name or my password.

I tried to log in with the email and Live password, but it said I could not log in with his PC and that I need to resolve the issue with the live account on-line.

I had a password reset disk (USB drive) and I used it. It started up the reset wizard and I put back my old password. It finished with no error but I still could not log in.

Finally, I logged in as Administrator and restored my Acronis system image from yesterday. Then everything was back to normal.

Was this a new account? or did you use the switch to a Microsoft account?

I could not tell you what happened.

I have several Local and Live accounts on my system for testing, and I do not have Live Essentials installed
All of my accounts work perfectly. And across PC's, as I have a desktop also setup with a couple of different and same accounts.

It is possible that Chrome caused an issue. and it is possible you need Live Essentials to use chrome properly. I don't know as I forbid Chrome being installed on any of my PC's.

A:Windows Live Mail Account Pop Up

Hi woodsman2, welcome to 7F!

Is this the pop-up?

I don't believe you can delete it. It has to be there to sign-in.

Try inputting your user name and password, Make sure you have the proper email address and password spelling, when complete, click on the Remember me box if it doesn't automatically do it for you.

Be careful when signing-in. there is a forget me link right above the sign-in button, you may have inadvertently clicked that to start this problem you're having. I'm hoping that if you sign-in it will reset the "Forget Me" action.


Can you describe the "list icon" a little better, maybe point it out on this?

If you click on the attachment it may open in a new tab, if you click on it there it might get larger and better to see. This depends on the browser you're using.

If it doesn't go to a new tab or get larger, study it, when done click on the browser back button to the left of the www. address bar to return to your thread.

I added a new email address/account to the Live Mail and when I hit send/receive a small box pops up requesting my username and password. When it comes up, the fields are already populated, so I just click ok. After a few seconds it comes up again asking me the same thing. I have tried deleting what was in there and typing it myself, but that does not seem to work either. Before I created this new email account, this box never popped up. I have made sure that all the information was exactly the same in the new account as the first email account, POP server, etc. Please help. It is driving me bananas.

Thank you in advance

A:I think someone has hacked my Windows Live E-Mail account

Unfortunately, I don't think you can use the same ID. Every account has a different ID/password combination, and if you try to open a new Windows Live account, you will just get an error message saying that ID is already in use. I think the only thing you can do is to take all of the steps you can to clean up your email account.

Here's some help for you:

First, I suggest you run one or two good malware scans (i.e. Malwarebytes or MSE or TrendMicro) to get rid of any malware in your email account (or anywhere on your system).

Then, follow the steps below, and hopefully there's help for you there.

First line of defense is to change your password and all "secret questions" and "answers."

Then, if hackers have locked you out of your email, go on-line and sign up for the free service in which you give your email provider (i.e. Windows Live/Hotmail, Yahoo, etc.) your cell phone number and they text you a secret code to allow you to get back into your email.

Next, when you do get back into your email, always "log out" of your email when you exit, rather than just hitting the exit X icon. Hitting the exit X doesn't end your email session, only 'logging out' actually shuts it down. If you just press exit, that leaves it available to be hacked because technically, it's still open, even after you've gone.

If nothing above has helped the problem, take a look at these tutorials to see if there is any help there for you:

The only free way I know of that you can do this with Windows Live Mail is to maintain a common Hotmail account or a Gmail account configured to use the imap protocols (intructions for setup included in the Gmail account settings). The way both work is that the account is kept current on the web and then that is shared and syncronized with each copy of Windows Live Mail configured to use that one web account.

And it remains there counting up and in about thirty seconds it shows "Downloading message 30128" and keeps on counting up at a blazing speed, but not one message is ever received.

AVG was giving me an warning message that I was not protected so in the Email Scanner Settings I re-enabled the "Scan outgoing messages" & "Display notification window when e-mail is being scanned" options. I left the "Scan incoming messages" box unchecked and the AVG security warning left & my email still worked.

Hi there wonderful Tech guys!

I have been experiencing a problem with my Windows Live Hotmail account. Basically when I log in, the log in page is normal, but the script which should show my inbox, sent msgs etc is is all in the wrong place, or not there at all, it moves around the page and all the image icons are condensed into the top left of the screen.

When I scroll my mouse over the headings (inbox, sent, deleted mails etc, which are all listed in a line down the left of the page) they disappear and reappear seemingly at random. I can access my emails with a well timed mouse click but I am very concerned about this problem as I am self employed and have a lot of important emails stored in this account.

I thought I should also add that yesterday I received an email from a known contact which would not open. There was an error message saying something like 'windows cannot complete this command at present' - sorry I don't have the exact message but everything was fine until I opened the account today. It didn't have a message saying 'this email looks suspicious' with it. The person who had sent that e-mail resent it and it opened fine. Do you think I could have received a virus through that email?

I have tried to contact Windows live about this but they do not have a contact phone number for this kind of query and there help page does not have the answer either.

Many Thanks for your help

Today I tidying out the inbox for one of those accounts; deleting, transferring to folders both within Live Mail and elsewhere in the computer. On checking new email I am presented with a small pop-up box which, at a glance, I thought was the request by an e-mailer for me to acknowledge receipt of the email. I trust the email and click "Yes" I then realise that the box has changed, showing a progress bar with a green wave flowing left to right with bar steadily filling up. I then realise that it is about to delete one of my email account. With the progress bar half full I click on the "cancel" button. The box disappears but then so does my account! I scan the computer for viruses but find nothing. I use "System restore" but nothing comes back. I have looked on the internet and have found advice and instruction for people that have had the same problem but even the instructions for Windows 7 do not marry up with my system i.e. navigating to folders.

I have 3 email accounts attached to Windows Live Mail. I want to disable sending/receiving mail from just one of the accounts. I don't want to remove the account, I just want to disable it so it doesn't check for mail. Is this possible?

Thanks.
 

A:Solved: Disable ONE email account in Windows Live

In the Properties (General tab) of the account have you tried unselecting 'Include this account when receiving mail or synchronizing'?

I recently set up an account with my school's email system. When I try to log in, it lets me log in to the general area, and then when i try to access my inbox, i'm directed to sign into windows live. I hate windows live, I want it to die in a fire, I don't have an account with windows live, and so I can't access my school email. I have uninstalled everything windows live-related, and have double checked that I didn't tell my school email account to open in a pop server (since you need to be able to access the email account to set it up, i'm sure I haven't done that). I changed my defaults in firefox to open emails with gmail, but it still goes to windows live. Any ideas?
 

A:email account defaults to windows live sign in

Contacting your school IT section to access your mail would be the go, as they can only give you access if you are allowed to have access remotely, then they will set it up for you, IF you have permissions to do so.

If you are talking about a computer at the school that is assigned to you, then you still need to contact them, to sort this.

I agree with you about Windows Live Mail though but that is just my personal opinion.

Hello,

I have been attempting to link all of my emails on windows live mail lately and it looked easy for a while. It was until I had to add my Cogeco account to it. The system keeps telling me, when I attempt to run a test message, that it can't locate the incoming and outgoing mail servers. I have even taken the servers declared on their personal website and they do not work.. Here are my current server settings:

incoming mail (POP3): pop.cgocable.ca (initially it was "pop.cogeco.ca")
outgoing mail (SMTP): smtp.cgocable.ca (initially it was "smtp.cogeco.ca")
E-mail username: **********

I have heard of some people checking the box where it says, "my server requires authentication" and they have had some success. I have tried this as well but they require me to re-enter the password and it will not even accept it! I would really appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.

Thanks

Greatings,
I have a problem with one of my two hotmail accounts connected to Windows Live Mail since 01/08/2016. I can't recieve or send any mail. The last mail I recieved was 27/07. It is strange, because with the other account I can still recieve and send mails.
I can't find the or any reason why this particular account doesn't function anymore. The server hostname and port are the same in both accounts.

Hello,

Twice a day someone or something is using my email account (I use Live Mail 2011 to access my Hotmail account) to send emails to everyone in my contacts list. Up until recently these emails had a blank subject line and in the body of the email had only a link (different each time) leading to various sites (most of which were dead/invalid). As of yesterday, however, people are telling me that I've been emailing them regular looking emails inviting them to join me in some social networking site, or health club site, or genealogy site etc. My main Internet Security Software is McAfee (it came preloaded with the computer) and Spybot Search and Destroy. Since those programs didn't detect anything I also downloaded and installed MalwareBytes Anti-Malware, SpywareBlaster, Lavasoft Ad-Aware (which I recently uninstalled because of compatibility issues), and HijackThis. Some of these programs found several occurrences of malware, but the problem persists nonetheless.

I followed all the instructions on the tutorial here, but gmer is crashing my computer. The first time I ran it it scanned for about 5 minutes before the screen turned blue and gave me a long message I didn't have time to copy down except for this : "A Problem has been detected and Windows had to shut down to prevent loss of data." Under that it said : "PFN_LIST_CORRUPT"

I restarted the computer and tried gmer again, only this time the computer crashed before I eve started the sca... Read more

OH JOY 'TIS ME AGAIN!

I do seem to have strange problems. Here's the story:
I have WLM & WM on my Vista pc. On my account it all works lovely with hardly any problems in one applicaton; open up WLM and my WM ([email protected]) is available also.

On the different user account, that is another story.
I can open up WLM or WM in seperate applications; open up WLM, close WLM, open up WM, close WM.
But WLM will not incorporate the WM account.
I tried ADD ANOTHER ACCOUNT but though it starts off well it does not go past the password point and either keeps flashing the password login box at me for ever or it says the email account name and or password is wrong.
Now here is the strange bit - on my other pc all is well with this WLM, it rocognises the user name and password of WLM and desk top application mail ([email protected]).

So do I give the different user Admin rights,will that make any difference? Or what?

Help would very much be appreciated!

Hi
i have used mail app in win8.1 for a while and it works, but someday it stops working, tried all methods but no result
i tried everything, windows diagnosis tool, uninstalling and installing mail app, clean boot,  update mail app, disabling antivirus and firewall (avast), double check password and connection
should i change imap and smtp servers and ports? anything changed since 3 weeks ago?
i don't know what is the problem, its very annoying...

A:Email Account is unavailable - Mail App windows 8.1

Hi,
Regarding to current information, I would like first confirm that if there is any change including software or Windows updates installed before this issue.

To make sure the email account can still work fine, please contact the provider support to know if the account is hacked or blocked for some reason. Try to change the password to see what's going on.

Considering if your current user profile was corrupted, please test the issue by creating a new user account and configure the mail app after login with this account.
Since this issue can also be caused by corrupted system files or virus, please perform a system restore back to the point before this issue and see if the app can work fine now.

I have just transferred from a Windows XP PC using Outlook Express 6 to Vista PC with Windows Mail. I successfully migrated one email account and it works fine. On a second account I get the windows security box asking for username and password and even when I enter them correctly I get the box again. When I cancel I get the following error message:

Account: 'Estradia general', Server: '127.0.0.1', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR unknown user name or bad password', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC91.

However the username and password are correct, and the account does send and receive emails OK. The account is located with the same ISP as the fully functioning account. I have checked that all the settings etc for the caccount are correct, and have tried manually inputting them with same effect.

Any ideas for a solution?

I keep having a issue with MS Outlook & Windows Live mail. I keep getting asked to enter a security code and other personal info that I don't feel I need to give to MS. I initially used a code number sent to an alternate e-mail address I had to open in order to receive the code, to verify my current e-mail account. I told MS I didn't want to keep doing this anymore, and either stop blocking my account or delete it. They still persist with requesting my personal info, phone numbers, creating alternate e-mail accounts and passwords, etc. I'm totally confused?

MS uses this catchall phrase to pump personal info on personal e-mail accounts: "Call us overprotective, but we want to make sure your account is secure?" Or we suspect someone "may be" trying to access your account? Yea me! WTH is this really all about? I also have had the same e-mail account for several years and never had any security issues or problems? Personally, I think its just a ploy to collect personal info for some use other than to make my account secure.

Its not like I have a business account with big bucks here for a hacker to make some quick money? The giving of personal info should be up to the individual account holder, not a requirement by MS.

Any solutions here? Should I save my e-mail account info to a flash drive or something and find another e-mail service provider that is less intrusive? If so, any other e-mail provider recommendations?

I feel your pain - Gmail is just about as bad.

Drop the "service" and pay a small amount for a different service. I switched to fastmail.fm - price is very low and service has been fantastic.

I dropped the MS account long ago and cleaned out my Gmail so there is nothing to see. Have to keep it in order to update my Android tablet otherwise I would trash it, too.

Hello,

I have been using WLM 2011 for a couple of years now. Everything was good until last Thursday. I opened WLM and got an error about login failed. After checking my account settings, I noticed everything was now set up as IMAP. I called my ISP and they confirmed it was supposed to be POP3.

So... can I reset the account back to POP3 without losing my mail?

I did do a system restore back to a point a couple of days before this happened. No change.

Thanks for your help.

It seems to me that the only way I can access my Hotmail account with Windows 8.1 is by using Windows Live Mail 2012. I set up the Outlook.com account and that works fine, but the Hotmail account does not send or receive emails. I get 'logon messages' asking for my password all the time. I tried to set up the Hotmail account using the same WLM settings as on my desktop computer with Win 7, but the categories are not the same for Win 8.1 and the info cannot be entered. I have tried to follow the suggestions that I have seen in other threads, but they haven't helped.
Right now, I have the following settings for my Hotmail: My ID is my Hotmail address, along with my password that I use; the incoming server is POP3; the server field is pop3.live.com with SSL checked and port 995; the outgoing server is smtp.live.com with port 25, with the SSL box checked. My desktop computer WLM 2012 is set up as follows: the ID's etc are my Hotmail addresses and passwords, but there is a server URL....http://mail.services.live.com/DeltaSync_v2.0.0/sync.aspx[/url] instead of outgoing and incoming servers etc. There is no Advanced tab here as in Win 8.1.
I hope my explanation is not too confusing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

with pop it will depend ifyou are leaving the email on the server

if you log into your hotmail account are the emails there

Why not allow hotmail to automatically setup
it works OK on WLM 12 on 8.1 I have set up quite a few hotmail/outlook accounts

Also it works with the mail app as well
