Preferred Solution: I need to get mail from my Live Mail Account immediately I normally view it on my phone but I need to print a doc

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

When I send an e TO myself with BCC to a list of recipients my copy of the Sent Mail doesn't show the BCC list?
Until recently I used to receive two copies of Sent Mail, the one not showing the BCC list the other showing the BCC list.
Any advice please?

A:Can't view bcc recipients in Windows Live Mail sent mail

In case any of the 52 readers of the original question are wondering...

....the answer is:-

The copy in the sent folder will show all the BCC recipients.

The copy arriving in the inbox will not show the BCC recipients as they

BCC'd. Each BCC recipient will only see that the message was sent to the sender

and that recipient.

A:Unified Sent view in Windows Live Mail?

Hello campersand and Welcome to Seven Forums.

In WLM 2012 "All sent items" I see emails sent from all accounts including my Gmail IMAP account.
I have a Gmail IMAP and Hotmail MAPI account in this WLM setup.

I sent a message from my Gmail IMAP account using Outlook 2010 on a different PC, and that message is listed in WLM 2012 on this PC.

It might help if you specify what programs you use, what email providers, what WLM version, etc.
Have you checked your settings on your Email provider(s) Web site?

Make sure all programs use the same protocol per account such as IMAP.

Hope this helps,

I am using Windows Live Mail Desktop as my email client on a computer running Win XP sp3. I understand Microsoft are encouraging folk to switch from OE to WLM

My cell phone is a Nokia 6110 Navigator.

Nokia provide a programme called PC Suite to sync phone and PC.

It enables sync with Outlook, Outlook Express and Lotus messenger but there seems to be no way to sync with WLM

Can anyone suggest how I can sync my cell phone with my PC and include the WLM as it naturally has all my contacts, emails etc.?

My Dell Studio 1555 PC runs Windows 7 Home Premium. I used System Restore quite a lot recently to get rid of a problem I had, and now I can't print from Internet Explorer 8 or from Windows Live Mail. I have used the printing troubleshooter, but it did nothing for me.

I can print from MS Word and from Firefox though, so is there any point in reinstalling the print driver, or should I try something else? There must be a way of connecting the printer to specific programs...................?

I have reset IE8, but it has made no difference.

I cannot print anything from Windows Live Mail. Using Windows 7 premium Home. Print icon from "File" drop down box, and also from E-mail drop-down are both "dead" (shaded out).

I'm still using WLM 2009. It does allow for printing a selection. Highlight the selection, click the print button, and the "selection" option in the print dialog is not greyed out as long as something has been highlighted in the message body. What actually prints is the header information followed by the selection.

I am running Windows Live Mail 2011. Recently I discovered that I wasn't able to print. It was working two days ago. I haven't made any changes or installed anything. I went to Control Panel and Windows Live Essentials,chose to repair all products. but print was not repaired.

How do I fix this problem?

A:Windows Live Mail, Print is grayed out

I believe WLM printing is related to printing from IE. For example, if you want to change the printed size of fonts in either an email or on a web page in IE, you must add the "text size" command to the IE toolbar and adjust it from there. Can you print a webpage with IE? If not, that may be the issue to work on.

Vista home system, working fine for past couple of years. Maintenance updates all applied. Have been using Windows Mail for the past year or so with no problems. A few days ago, I was no longer able to print an email message on my USB attached Canon printer. I have tons of other applications - all print just fine. When I try to print from Windows Mail, I get the box asking me which printer to use (there's only one) and I hit the print button. The little printer Icom shows up on the active task area on the lower right of the screen and if I hover over that it says that there's one document pending for the printer. A couple of seconds later, it says zero documents pending. But - nothing printed and there's nothing in the printer queue.

Checked many other applications - all print fine. Decided to give Windows Live Mail a try and installed that. Exact same problem. I've tried deleting the printer and reinstalling it - no change. I've rebooted a couple of times - no change. No events logged. Any ideas?

I have a Windows Live Mail account that I use to access my Comcast email. It has and still is working fine. 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.

A Windows Live Mail Account pop-up comes on every time I open my Live Mail emails. I went through the List Icon (upper Left corner). This only takes it off temporarily. Comes back later. How do I remove it permanently. At first my email address was in the user space and no password. Here lately no user name in user space. How can I permanently delete. Note: I am 76 yrs. old and new to computers and I thank you in advance Woodsman2

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.

Hello All,

Skipped Vista and went to Win 7 in Dec. Rebuilt system. Decided to use Windows Live Mail. We don't have extraordinary email client needs. But not sure what I may be missing with other free or cheap email clients. (I am an old Eudora user)

Now I have to sign IN to Window Live Mail every time I turn on the program. It does not sign on automatically as checked.

I would like to know all this does for me before I turn it off and close the account..



A:Win Live Mail account question

As long as you do not choose the Connection Option to "Stop Signing In" it should sign in automatically. Try a repair: Programs and Features, highlight Windows Live Essentials, click on repair and in the next window choose repair. It will repair all installed parts of Essentials, including Mail. (This is also needed in 2011 to fix a bug with the Junk Mail filtering.)

You may also notice that your contact list will differ depending on whether you are signed in or not.

When I opened my Outlook Express 6.0 yesterday everything seemed fine. But when I switched identities, I could not see the messages in the preview pane. Then, when I switch back to my default identity, the same thing occurs. If I close the program and then reopen it, the main identity is fine. I did notice a fix offered by sekirt, dated April 07,2004, in which they suggested closing OE, then click on start--> run. type in regsvr32 inetcomm.dll (noting space between the "2" and the "i") click OK. This worked once or twice, but only until I closed and reopened OE. I also made sure to restart, thinking that this would make this fix permanent. It did not. As a matter of fact, I just tried it for the third time, and it didn't work at all. I am running Windows XP Media Center Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 2 on a Toshiba Qosmio Notebook with Intel Pentium M processor 2.00 GHz, if that helps. What I don't understand is why this is happening on one identity and not the other. Any other ideas? I'm a novice at this, but can follow directions, even if I have no clue what you are doing. This is my first posting, so forgive me if I messed up anything in this posting. Thanks!

A:How would i Sync a Windows Live Mail account on 3 PCs?

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.

I think someone has hacked my Windows Live E-Mail account. When i click remove it comes up with a box to send the information that it is being removed. But when i send it the email account is still there it just says lost. Now i can't remember if i set it up as another account for passwords and so on to be sent to so i logged out and tried to log into the account but it won't let me and i have used the passwords i would have used on setting this account up. This leads me to think i have been hacked. So i clikcked on the little radio button saying i think my account has been hacked or words to those effect and all it says is create a strong password and download Microsoft security essentials is there anyway i can get rid off the account altogether without me losing my windows live ID.
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:

I tried logging onto my live mail account that I use for paypal and ebay, and I got this: "It looks like someone else might be using your account".
It then gives me a form to try and prove I am the person behind the account.
But the only thing I can remember to put in there is recent ebay transactions, and it doesn't ask for email i've received, only emails i've sent. So the link failed, and i'm still locked out.
Every single logon in there for the past two years comes from this IP address. But the biggest problem is that I have rarely ever sent an email from this address, as it as I only use it for ebay/paypal purchases. And the only thing the form seems to be interested in is sent mail.

And what's infuriating about this, is they've done this on all 3 of my accounts now in the past two years.
I don't even remember how I managed to get the other two accounts freed up, but it was a different form than I got tonight.

One important point I should add here, they did this each time because I dared to logon to my account from another location/IP address.
Yes, that's right. Apparently Microsoft no longer condones you being able to be mobile with your email accounts.

At any rate, if someone has some sort of customer service link I could use to resolve this, it would be appreciated. But it seems that all the original customer service links from the outlook rollout are dead.

A couple of days ago my Live Mail account started giving me 3219 error whenever I tried to send or receive emails. I'd read that enabling POP via outlook.com could fix this, so added a new Live Mail account with the same email address using altered settings and am now able to receive emails, but not send them.
These are the current settings:

Incoming mail: POP3 server
Incoming mail (POP3): pop-mail.outlook.com (port 995)
Outgoing mail (SMTP): smtp-mail.outlook.com (port 25)
SSL conenction is enabled for both options.

Whenever I try to send an email from this account I get the following error message:

If you login to the Hotmail account using a browser (WEB access), is the message there?

A:Windows Live Mail - Hotmail POP account

Hi David,

Since confirming I successfully added my Hotmail using POP to WLM and tested it, (it worked) it has been removed from WLM as it gets very very few messages.
My settings were slightly different from yours.
On the Servers tab, I ticked 'My server requires authentication'
On the Advanced tab, 'Server Timeouts' was set to 5 minutes & everything below 'Delivery' was unticked.
I have also made changes to my other accounts.
Cancelled forwarding Hotmail to Gmail main account.
Gmail main account used to check my AOL mail account, its been cancelled.
live.co.uk mail account forwarded to my Hotmail account.
My other Gmail is forwarded to my Gmail main account.
To get notified of new mail on opening FF, I added https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...tifier/?src=ss
it checks my main Gmail, AOL & Hotmail for me. If their is mail for me in Gmail, I open WLM to read them.
If there is mail for AOL or Hotmail, clicking the addon opens their respective web pages.

Hello.....yes I got a new pc, and on the old one I could view as well as create (using PSP and Photoshop) then show html's with stationery, music along with scrolling backgrounds, .....been doing this for years and I know it's something in the "Settings" that is preventing me from once again enjoying my little hobby.

I am using Windows Live Mail 2011 and IE 9, Windows 7 64 bit.......some have said you can't run stationery on 11 but you most certainly can....I belong to several groups and that's all we do....

Does anyone have any suggestions??? I so miss that and it's the one thing, the last thing, that would make all this new computer stuff all put together.

I'd appreciate any help.

Hiyya Kirbiee mate I don't think you can run stationery in WLM it says you can in Windows Mail but it is long gone I guess the only ref I can find is in this Creating stationery in Windows Live Mail - Windows 7 Help | 12-06-12 - PC Advisor Forums

Well I have tried all the settings in mine but cannot find any reference to it.

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:

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

You are using a browser (not an email client) to access Hotmail, right? What browser? Try a different one to see if there is a difference.

if you CLOSE your account it stays dormant for 270 days!!!! and you can log back in at anytime during then

my email has been used to spam twice, so ive created a new one, I want to delete the old one but it seems to be impossible to do, some people say just dont sign in for 30 days and accounts deleted, I dont believe that is the case anymore with WLM as they would not keep it dormant for 270 days if you actually wanted to close an account...seems to be wrong to me.

does anyone know if this is possible?
