Windows Live Mail only searching email subjects, not email contents

Q: Windows Live Mail only searching email subjects, not email contents

I didn't notice this before today. I'm running the 64 bit version of Windows 10 Pro, fully up to date, as well as the latest version of Windows Live Mail. I have a bunch of storage folders that I've created for email, so my actual inboxes are pretty much always empty as any mail I want to keep gets put into a storage folder.

When I do a search inside the program, all it's searching are the email subjects, not the actual contents of the messages.

Any idea how to fix this? I know this was an issue in the 64 bit version of Windows 7, as seen here.....


.....but I'd have thought this would have been fixed by now! Is that fix still valid for Windows 10, or is there another solution? I really don't want to have to switch to another email client if I can help it.


Preferred Solution: Windows Live Mail only searching email subjects, not email contents

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.)

A: Windows Live Mail only searching email subjects, not email contents

I have been having the same trouble, which was just noticed...
Windows Live Mail does not search "contents" of messages anymore... just searches names and message subject line.
Hope to find an answer as I hate to switch to another mail client, but I absolutly need the search functionality.

I have an email I get on a regular basis that I can see who it's from and the subject line but the body of the email is blank. I have problems with it in WLM but I can view it just fine in web mail and from my iPhone. Not sure if it's an issue on the end of the person who's sending it or an issue with WLM but since I can view it completely in web mail and on my iPhone I would think it's something with WLM. Thanks for any help anyone can give.

A:Body of email not showing in one particular email in Windows Live Mail

Hi, I finally was able to talk with someone from the place that was sending the email in question I was having issues with. They found out their emails are not compatible with WLM but are working on a resolution. I'm not sure what kind of email service they're using but it's not like WLM is some obscure mail client. Anyway, I'm marking this as solved even though I've received a few emails from them since and still having the issue of nothing in the body of the message. Now that they've figured out what the issue is I hope they fix it soon.

I am using Windows Live Mail to send and receive emails.

Some people do not receive my email. I had noticed that it seemed to be mail sent to hotmail, but it seems that it is more general than that!
I do not know what to do.

One odd thing is, that they will receive it if I forward it to my blackberry and then send it off there!

I have a problem and a question re WLM. The problem is twice now in the four months with my new PC several emails could not be opened, moved or deleted. "Message Can Not Be Found" appears in the body. Other emails worked fine.Today I read my email OK, went to other sites etc, came back to email and those very same emails I just read now had the "Message Can not Be Found".
What's happening here and how do I prevent it? The other question regards the "Show Pictures" link. How do I show pictures permanently so I don't have to do it for each email with pictures. I run anti viruses etc regularly. Thanks.

A:Windows Live Mail Email

What type of e-mail account do you have? I get that message occasionally with my IMAP account, as it is still downloading the message.

As for the pictures, I've never seen an option to not prompt. For the record, it isn't about malware. When you load an HTML message, and it downloads the pictures, the sender knows it hit a valid e-mail address, and will continue to spam that address.

A:Windows Live Mail email

do you have a question ?

Read other 1 answers

Recently have not been able to receive emails-some do come over but not about 90%.  I have called and talked to my regular emailers so I know the first statement is true.  I have called my internet provider several times in the last 3 days but they cannot find anything wrong other than telling me it probably is my email provider (Windows Live Mail).  I am now getting a pop-up that states I must be on line and/or that I am working off line and do I want to go on line?  The program does not allow me to answer as when I click on yes or no, the pop up keeps returning..
I have also talked with their Security section thinking that maybe they flagged my account for some reason as one of internet provider persons stated they may have done.  I have been assured that that was not done.
Oh yes-I do check Web Mail and one that was sent to me today is in Web Mail.  That was a test from my Internet Provider-it just will not come over to my Live Mail!
I have NO problems sending emails-ONLY receiving them!
Is there an upgrade or driver that I need?  Maybe I need to switch email accounts to GMail or HotMail?
Thank you to anyone who responds.  I am very frustrated!

A:Email from Windows Live Mail

I don't know anything about Live Mail and how it works...but I would just uninstall/reinstall it.  There may be damaged files and the uninstall/reinstall would eliminate that suspicion.
I believe that they also have a forum...if it happens to you, chances are it's happened to someone else and come up before.

Hello Members, hope you can help....

I have an ASUS Eee 900, and i like using Windows Live Mail as my email client, the accounts i access are a 'Hotmail.co.uk', and an 'AOL.com' IMAP account.

As the Eee PC is for portable use, and is a small spec, how do i configure both accounts to only pick up the headers of emails.

If any members know, would they kindly direct me as to the procedure, or where to go in each of the emails accounts to make this change, if it can be done?

kind regards

I can see all the folders when I look under C:\Users\... but I don't know how to restore all of it. I'm hoping someone here could assist?

I did read the backup solution before doing the Win update but it's a little late for that since I just read it here now. :-(

A:Cant send email using windows live mail

Generally speaking:

If you could send email in the recent past through the same account and have not knowingly made any changes to the account, it is most likely an ISP issue and will disappear soon enough. Nearly all ISPs have periodic email issues, server failures, ongoing maintenance, etc and typically do not advise their customers.

If it persists for several hours or overnight, then I would call their customer support.

If it persists and the ISP cannot help you, then it becomes more problematic and points to something within your own walls.

You are right it is a common problem, and the cure is always the same. You have to correct the information that is provided. Bring up the email service. On the top you will see tools, then you will see accounts. In those accounts you, or the system, provided information such as port number, account name etc. If you would be kind enough to show me what information you provided. We can get you going. No need to send personal information like emal address. You can put [email protected]

I just started using Windows Live Mail. I have it setup with gmail as my provider. I notice that there is a 5 to 10 minute delay/lag in the audio notification. This delay is after the email shows up in the inbox. I have set Windows live email up on a second computer and the delay is there too so it's not just one system. How do I get Windows Live Mail to give an audio notification as soon as the email shows up in the inbox, not 5 to 10 minutes later? Several times I have already read the email and then I get a notification sound and wonder what the sound is for. It's confusing to say the least.

I have an HP Pavilion dv6 laptop I'm using it on. Intel i7, 8 gig RAM, so this is not about a slow computer.

Thanks for any help! Much apprciated.

I have a talktalk email a/c and usually read my mails in windows live mail.

Last week there were some issues with talktalk. I was not receiving any mails in windows live mail and they advised I access my mails online,via their site - which I did.

When I logged into my a/c on their site today is was completely empty. However, all mails my mails appeared in my windows live mail.

Is there a reason why my mails would go from one to the other or I wouldn't be able to access them both ways? I had a look in settings but cannot see anything.

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:

Sounds like you may need "winlivemailfix.reg":
"This issue occurs because Windows Live Mail Version 3 does not install a 64-bit search filter and therefore cannot index the Windows Live Mail files for Windows 7 64-bit operating systems by default. The e-mail header will be searched and will produce results, but searching on the content of the e-mail message body will not produce the expected results. "

I uninstalled my Acronis TIH 2012 and now have no software to back up my email accounts, personally added email account folders and contacts. I would appreciate it very much if anyone knows of any free email backup software that I can use. It doesn't have to have the ability to schedule backups. I'm looking for email backup only as I don't need to backup favorites, documents, etc, etc, etc, although if additional functions are provided that's OK with me.

Thank you in advance for your time and any assistance provided.

You can back it up by hand if you like. It has a function to export all emails and accounts to any drive attached to your machine. In the upper left corner, click the blue box and from the dropdawn click export and follow the directions. It takes about 3 minutes, if that long. There is also a program that will do it. I have never used it but will find it for you.

The Mail app has a gear symbol which supposedly lets you shut off sounds. I don't use Mail. I use Windows Live Mail. WLM does not have a cute little gear symbol. So...that route is closed.

I've had hotmail now for years.
Last week I received email stating hotmail will no longer be supported and my email account will be "updated"
The updated account it changed to was "outlook express"....hated it.

So now I have "windows live mail" up and running - and my old hotmail addresses are still working. So far so good.
Now....I wish to ADD two or more additional email addresses - but I'am unable to create them.

Suddenly I can't send new email nor reply to received emails in Windows Live Mail (WLM) 2011. I have no problem receiving emails, but when I try to send or reply I get the error message 'A problem has occurred. Please try again." Trying again and again does not help.

Any ideas on how to solve this problem would be appreciated. I have saved and organized many emails over the years and I don't want to lose them by doing a reinstall of WLM. And I'm not sure where/how to back up all these emails.

What if I did a restore to some point just before this recent WLM problem occurred........would that perhaps solve my problem and retain all my emails and associated folders?

1) When using the "mail" view (vs. contacts or calender) look for "Options". There should be an "advanced" tab. In that window you should be able to click on a link to the "message store". That will tell you the path to your user folder containing the messages.
2) It should be possible to uninstall/reinstall WLM without affecting the message store, so if you want to delete them you will have to delete the folder indicated as the message store.

Hello Pleides2112
I'm pretty sure that you can't as this would not stop copy-paste or taking a screen shot of it.If you are worried about privacy then I would be careful what was wrote and to whom I sent Emails.You can always encrypt your message and the recipient would need a decryptor key but it can still be forwarded.

Now when I try to open just my emails with the attachments, the email opens but the attachment while shown as a paperclip does not show a word or pf but just a string of text. All my other emails with attachments open. It?s as if my email address has been blocked. The strange thing is that I have another email account on the same pc and if I send an email to them the attachment opens any ideas!!!!

I am using Windows 7 in a Dell Inspiron and my live mail on my desktop will no longer open. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but my battery went dead while the computer was on two days ago, but I've been able to get into the mail since...

First, the problem:

Windows Live Mail could not be started. The application was unable to open the Windows Live Mail message store. Windows Live mail was unable to locate the message database. If you've moved the database files to a new location, click OK to rest the database path to that location. Otherwise, click Cancel to proceed, any existing messages found will be available under Orphaned Accounts (0x00000000.2)

If I click ok or cancel, I get:

Windows live mail could not be started. The application was unable to open the Windows live message store. Your computer may be out of memory or your disk is full. (0x8007002)

So far, to attempt to remedy it:
Run a disk check
Restarted three times
Run Repair on the Live stuff
Tried system restore to four days ago
I even removed my anti-virus (temporary of course)
None of the above has any affect.

How can I save my emails without being able to open the mail program itself? As one of the few idiots, I did not back up my emails.
Where are the located? I figure if I can find them, pull them into another folder and the reload the Live stuff, I'll be ok. *hopefully*

Well, I got it. I pulled the email files, backed them up, and imported them with the import wizard. Whew! I thought I had lost everything for good! I'm going to back everything up every day from now on. I thought I had cleaned out my inbox enough...I'll put money that may have been the source of the problem...to darn many emails.

My old CPU Hard drive failed so I bought a new CPU. A Toshiba SateliteC55 with Windows 8.
Ok I am trying to set up my emails is Windows live Mail client. I had another CPU with Win 7 so I had my emails set up before on it. Thing is now charter won't help me with my problem and neither will MS.
They sent me the link for setting it up on WLM. Here is the link http://www.myaccount.charter.com/customers/Support.aspx?SupportArticleID=2656 which I did. I have 3 different emails with charter. I set up the first one and followed the instructions and set it up as IMAP. But in WLM it recognize it as POP3 and won't let me change it. So I can download all 9000 emails that were on the server (don't know why they were there) but it won't let me send out an email from WLM. I change it to a POP instead of IMAP and it let me send out an email.
Also when In tried to set up the second email IMAP it tells me it can't find the IMAP server even though it will DL emails from the first email set up as Imap.
It is very confusing and Charter is a worthless hump of information. I guess what I want to ask is there a link for a step by step setup for charter emails to windows live mail? I also will be setting this up on my phone and Ipad..
IS there another client I could use instead of this that is easier to use. I would rather just use that.
Thanks for the help. If this is confusing please point it out because I am so frustrated at charter I may not be... Read more

A:Windows Live Mail received email strange characters

Although I don't know if these will work, they may be worth a try. Windows Update makes available language packs, so you should make sure you have installed the French Language pack. Also, Windows Live Mail has a spell check feature under Options/Spelling with many downloadable language packs, including French.

I had an email from Microsoft saying that they are making changes to their web email services in a few weeks time and that it would prevent email from being delivered to Windows Live Mail 2012. However, I'm actually using Windows Live Mail 2011. Does anyone know if the upcoming change will also prevent emails from being delivered to Windows Live Mail 2011 or is it a Windows Live Mail 2012 issue? If it applies to both versions, I'll have to update to Windows Live Mail 2012 and then apply the patch as I see that Windows Live Mail 2011 is no longer supported.

Question 1: I am using Ctrl-A in Windows Live Mail to select groups of mail that I need to delete but I can't find a way to deselect an email in the group. Since holding down Ctrl and clicking doesn't work anymore the way it did in XP has anyone found a workaround or a solution to this?

Question 2: Within emails I have a problem clicking on any link that is supposed to open to an email, the links to web pages work fine. I have already gone to the applications tab in options and tried selecting every mail option available and none of them work. Has anyone found a workaround or a solution to this?

Thanks for all assistance!

Window Live Mail won't play the wav file of my choice for email notification. I am talking about wav files that I have copied to the Windows/Media folder to use for my email notifications.

I have WLM set to play sounds and in fact it plays all of the wav files that came with the system. But when I copy my own .wav files to the same folder that holds the other wav files that are used for windows sounds and then try to use that file for email notification it won't play. The wav file does play in Windows Media Player if I click on just the file, but not in WLM as my email notification. I have set the option in the Control Panel under windows sounds for email notification. I have tried this with two different wav files and neither one will play as my email notification but play fine by themselves.

Does anyone know why my wav files will not play as my email notification in WLM? Once again I have set WLM to play sounds and the Control Panel/Change System Sounds options for email notification to my wav file and the native wav files do play.

A:Windows Live Mail won't play my .wav file for email notication

Welcome to the forum. Thanks for describing you problem so completely and for filling out your system specs as well. It made me want to test it for myself. I my case it worked properly but I'm using the previous version of WLM (2009/2010). I did notice that the mail program only uses the notification sound when dowloaded into a pop3 account but not for IMAP accounts (unlike Vista's Windows Mail which did it for both).

Can't hurt to do a repair install. Go to Programs and Features, "Windows Live Essentials", and choose a repair. It will repair whatever components of Essentials you downloaded, including Mail.
