Preferred Solution: Downloading Mail, Not! Downloading Just Quit Working

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.)

Got a new computer a few months ago running Windows Vista. A few weeks ago it quit downloading anything. Before then, no problems downloading. Whenever I try to download something I get all the appropriate pop up boxes such as SAVE/OPEN: where to save to (Iusually send to desktop): I even get the downloading box showing the files flying from one site to another. In the final second the box completely disappears (even though I have the CLOSE BOX option unchecked) and there is no download on my desktop. I get no error message. I've searched for the files I DLed and they are nowhere to be found. I've even tried changing locations to send the files to but that didn't help.

I am getting daily updates on my antivirus program and updates to windows. The problem occurs only when I try to download from the internet myself.

The last time I was able to download anything was when I downloaded a newer version of my antivirus protection. It came from a well known site, one that I've used for years. That download went smoothly but the install was problematic. I had to go to their website for help and was told to turn off windows defender, firewall and the user accounts. I'm telling you all this because I suspect I've turned off something that's causing this problem. I did turn these programs back on after installing the AVirus program.

I'm at a loss as to where to look or what to do next. Any suggestions?

I have used Windows Mail for years with very few problems. I prefer to download all mail and then respond, file, delete, etc. About a month ago it seemed to "timeout" on me when trying to download Emails with large attachments (pictures, PDF files, etc). I can access thos Emails through Webmail and file them so they don't continue to try and download, but now I've go a good number of these "stuck" in my webmail.

What could have changed that has now prevented me from downloading these Emails through Windows Mail and how can I fix it? Thnaks for any and all info/advice.

A:Windows Mail (Vista 32 bit) not downloading mail with large attachments

Welcome
If you increase the timeout, you should be able to correct the problem
1. Open Windows Live Mail, go to Tools > Accounts...
2. Choose your email account and then click on "Properties"
3. Click on the "Advance" tab
4. Under 'Server Timeouts', drag the slider to change it to a more longer or maximum period of timeouts.

Probably caused by extremely large attachments, or internet slowing down. There are various sites to check the speed.

HI,

I have a problem with "Windows Mail." The problem is simply this: I use two web-based emails (Yahoo and Earthlink). In both cases, I must keep my emails on-line for a long time -several years. I need to have portable access to them even when I am away from my computer. I can't be alone in this.

Yet I also want to use the Windows Mail successor to Outlook. I can't figure out an intelligent way to use this program with my needs. Because I keep email on the servers, each time I download the new emails I copy the older ones first. I now have three sets of copies of the older emails, which I then have to manually delete from Windows Mail. There must be a better way!

First, is it possible to download messages from most recent to older, so that I can stop the downloading when it gets to mail I already have downloaded?

Second is it possible to put a 'range' of time that I want to download mail (i.e. backwards, say until 2010 but not further)?

Third is it possible to delete the multiple copies of emails on Web Mail that I have so that I do not have the duplicates, but do not have to remove them -very laboriously- by going through my entire folder on Web Mail? Is there some automatic way to do this or is there a program or function I can use?
Thank You,

I have used the same email programme on this computer for 2 years with no problems. For the last week or so my emails have taken forever to download, half and hour or more.

There is plenty of capacity on my webmail account which is where messages are downloaded from, and according to the little information box WLW is 'aware' of the messages to be downloaded, and list 'downloading 17 messages' or whatever number; no error message appears, it just takes a-g-e-s. Any suggestions on how to fix it?

Please no suggestions to download some other better mail programme - I'm happy with this one when it is working!

Many thanks

A:Windows Live Mail suddenly downloading mail very slowly

I would first try the simple thing of resetting(power cycle) your network equipment. Unplug the power cord(s) to both the modem and router or just the one cord if its a combo modem/router and wait about a minute or so; then plug the modem back in first and let that boot; then plug the router back in and let that boot. Try this out and see what happens. If it doesnt resolve the issue post back and we can take it from there.

whenever i open ms office outlook 2007 and try to download received emails, an error message will pop up saying path to naCmnLib71.dll is not found and outlook has to close
after some searching on the internet it seems this file is used by mcafee virusscan to scan incoming emails
after disabling the email scanner everything worked fine
so i can conclude that the email scanner is indeed the problem
i also updated mcafee virusscan to the lastest version but it does not seem to solve the problem
is there anyone with the same problem and has solved the problem?
can you provide me with the solution?

I am having problems with downloading like zip and installation files. When ever I download a installation file like say Quicktime 7 it would be corrupted about 50%-75% of the time I download it.
Zip files usually have atleast one file that has a "CRC check failed" and sometimes if I try to extract that file once again it doesn't give me that message. I tried to reinstall WinZip again but it still gives me the problem so don't think it is the programs fault.

Image problems happen when I try to move a picture file to another folder or when I try to save an image(less likely to happen but still once in a while). It seems like the higher the resolution or size of the image the more likely it would happen. Also though I am not sure but if it try to move a large number of picture files at once it happens more often though maybe it is just because I am moving more picture files.

Here is an example of what happens when I try to move/download a picture file:
Note: it is just a random picture that I downloaded to use as an example. The white part on the top of the image is normal it was part of the original image.

The orginal: http://img402.imageshack.us/img402/4986/cars4yv.jpg

Hi
I've just got a new PC running Vista and I've got a problem with my email. It keeps downloading old messages.
I've set it not to keep messages on the server but they are still there;
I've left it overnight downloading in the hope that it would finish and then stop but this morning I found about 5 copies of the older emails;
I've checked that I haven't got duplicate accounts and I deleted and recreated my account.
I could access my ISP through webmail and get rid of them there but a) it would take forever and b) I keep losing access to my ISP.
Any ideas before I give up and install Thunderbird?

"b) I keep losing access to my ISP."

Each time you lose access, the download is NOT completed, so when you try again it MUST start over. Since you a Webpage access, I would delete that way.

How would I go about downloading my saved mail from AOL to Thunderbird? There is A LOT of it, haha

A:Downloading Saved Mail

This page will help you set up your Thunderbird client to receive AOL email. There is an option within Options -> your email account -> Server Settings that will let you keep email on the server even if you have downloaded it to Thunderbird. I prefer keeping it on the server just in case.

As for downloading all of your email from AOL, I believe that depends on a setting from AOL's side. Like with Gmail, I had to access Gmail and not Thunderbird to make sure all of my past email was downloaded to Thunderbird. It might happen automatically when you set up your account, or maybe there is indeed a setting when you set it up, I'm not sure.

Never had this happen before.

I looked at Server Options in Thunderbird, but don't see anything like:
Delete From Server After Downloading, or similar.

I would really appreciate some assistance with this bugging problem!

I have a laptop running Vista and Outlook 2003 and have configured Outlook to download all of my gmail which has always worked fine.

I just bought a new PC running Windows 7 and Outlook 2007 and i also configured outlook on the pc to download my gmail.

On both machines I have ticked the option to keep a copy of the mail on the server. However...

After picking up a new mail on either of the machines, it no longer is downloaded on the other machine. It also seems that most of the time it is the new PC that gets the mail (although this may just be because it is working quicker than the laptop).

Good evening everyone.

I thought I'd try a different avenue as I am pulling my hair out with my current ISP help team at AT&T, who seem to be anything but helpful.

My email account was originally with SBCGLOBAL.NET who joined forces with Yahoo some 6 years ago or so and eventually were encompassed under AT&T.

Ever since then they have gradually been tweaking and generally overhauling the email system entirely. Over a long period of time they have been migrating accounts that were originally with SBCGLOBAL, Bell South, Packard and so on that were on legacy email servers and transferring them to a centrally controlled AT&T email server farm. My account was done in around late Feb / early March.

Ever since then, it has been virtually impossible for me to do any serious downloading of my email via POP3.

I will either get an error referring to a stuck message plus a network error or I will just get the network error. This is the format ::

Message number 169 could not be retrieved. Account: 'Clive's Email Account', Server: 'inbound.att.net', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR [SYS/TEMP] problem retrieving message.', Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800420CD

Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: 'Clive's Email Account', Server: 'inbound.att.net', Protocol: POP3, Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Error N... Read more

A:Problems downloading mail via POP3

Someone did reply to my message - thanks whoever you are, but I had to refresh my login and then there was no trace of the reply, hence my not knowing who you are but you mentioned that you also have SBCGLOBAL - and yes the email address is still the same, its all under AT&T now and they have migrated all (or mostly all) accounts to their own servers. It was immediately after this migration that the errors started happening. (AT&T even admitted that some of the migration processes were flawed....no duh)

I didn't go further in my message since it already read like a mini novel, but I should also have gone on to say that in addition to Windows Mail that is native on Vista, I also tried Windows Live Mail, Pegasus, opera and indeed the one you mentioned - thunderbird - all to no avail - still got the same error.

I have also tried different computers as mentioned and different access points.

Microsoft Outlook was the only client that "kind of" worked, in that it would attempt to download all the messages that it could then give a whole list of errors regarding messages that could not be downloaded, along with a network error that stopped the "handshake" at the end of the download process. I also noticed that many of the messages that had been downloaded, the attachments were messed up on many of the messages - not downloaded correctly, corrupted etc.

Also, try creating a new Profile in Outlook 2003 and recreate the account settings to see if the new Profile has the same issue.

Earthlink has two ways to read and write e-mail. You can view it online or you can download it to your home computer and read it there. I'm having a severe problem downloading it to my home computer.
Currently, there's nothing in my online inbox except for messages that I myself have sent, but when I try to download them, I get a message that contains nothing but today's date and under "view source", the following:

X-Symantec-TimeoutProtection: 0
X-Symantec-TimeoutProtection: 1
X-Symantec-TimeoutProtection: 2
X-Symantec-TimeoutProtection: 3
X-Symantec-TimeoutProtection: 4
X-Symantec-TimeoutProtection: 5
X-Symantec-TimeoutProtection: 6
X-Symantec-TimeoutProtection: 7
X-Symantec-TimeoutProte

The effect of this is that downloading is very, very slow after which it just blinks out and doesn't download anymore. I'd promptly delete the message, but I have no idea which message is creating this on the fly.

Clearly, this is borrowing Symantec's capabilities so that my Norton Systemworks doesn't detect this as a virus. A few months ago, this didn't appear until about halfway through the download and I could delete messages until I had the right one. Now it appears right off the bat and I can't download a thing. A further "improvement" is that the downloaded messge used to display an 1899 date and now just does the contemporaneous date.

Would very, very much appreciate any ideas!!!!

Then reinstall Live Mail. Then it worked fine again. It has works fine for 3 or 5 months now. It worked fine 2 days ago. Today whin I brought it up, I had to reset it up. And then it started downloading thousands of messages again. Can't figure out what is causing this to happen. Has anyone else ever had this problem?

It was working fine, had Live Mail 2011, and worded just fine....but then noticed I wasn't getting any new mail from my hotmail account like I used to. In fact, this error happened, where it said I had X number of new mail, and when I went to look, was only a few, but couldn't read or delete them, and there was gaps, like missing emails. I had tried adding Gmail to Live Mail, and then it started to download emails exceeding 15K, and will take forever, just to show hardly any new emails, if any, despite it saying it received 15K+ emails.

I tried repairing, uninstalling, reinstalling 2012 edition of Live Essentials. I even deleted the files in the Live mail folder on the hard drive after uninstalling it....but adding my hotmail account.....well, it won't retrieve new email (My gmail used to be picked up along with the hotmail as it's attached to it), and adding gmail results in over 15K downloads.

I don't know if it's settings...I never touched them, and it all used to work for years with no problem....this this one glitch happened that seems to cause all this grief for me.

I do have Windows 7, and not sure all the stats of my computer....just hope someone can help.

I have a problem related to Outlook 2000. It will work fine for about half of the day and then it just stops downloading email. My internet connection still works, but Outlook just will not download mail from the pop server.

It requires a reboot to get the incoming mail flowing again.

Any suggestions?

From about three weeks ago, on only my most heavily used email account (it has around 75,000 emails in it and gets around 200 emails each day), I was only able to download 4 emails at a time. Then it would stop. I would click "Get Mail" and it would download the next 4 emails. I'd click "Get Mail" etc etc until all emails were downloaded.

I tried to find a solution, but couldn't, so I just put up with it (it was really only a pain in the butt first thing in the morning).

Then, this morning - disaster! My main account only downloads one email at a time! It shows "55 of 55 Incoming messages", then next time "55 of 55 incoming messages" etc. A new one must have arrived because now it is showing "56 out of 56" (but I still have 6 hours of emails to download).

Important info:

* Email is hosted by gmail.
* Account is setup as a POP account.
* This issue is not affecting other staff on a mac, using same domain for email. Nor is it affecting any other email accounts I have (about 16 active email accounts, including 2 others hosted by gmail).
* Mail version is 4.3
* OS is 10.6.4
* Hard drive has 83GB available
* Last week I installed an extra 2GB of ram - so it wont be a lack of ram.
* No other email accounts are affected.
* There are 20 unread emails sitting in my Gmail account waiting to be downloaded (I logged in to Google Webmail and saw them).
* I have checked the Activity... Read more

A:Apple Mail Account: Only Downloading 1 Email at a Time

This is a largely undocumented problem with GMail over pop.

Read this article. Gordon's Tech: Gmail’s undocumented POP3 download limit

It appears that your download limit is lower than that stated (340) but I believe it is the same thing.

I think the only way yo fix this would be to setup an IMAP GMail in Mail.

Are you using normal GMail or google Apps Gmail?

If you need any help doing this just ask, I'm here to help.

P.S. This forum is generally reserved for questions about Windows Seven or involving Windows Seven, if you have Mac only problems, we generally recommend you use Apple - Support - Discussions - Forum Home instead because there will be many more people who know their way around Macs unlike here (where it's just me ).

I'm a long-time user of Outloook Express, and have recently switched to Windows Live Mail on a new laptop running Windows 7. I'm gradually coming to grips with the similarities and differences, and generally I'm quite happy with Live Mail. But I have one puzzle and one irritation, and I wondered if anyone here knows how (if at all) I can deal with them?

The irritation
Despite comprehensively UNchecking "Check for new messages every xx minutes" (several times) on different days, and subsequently closing and restarting Live Mail each time I've tried, it still seems to download emails from the server of its own accord: not frequently, but seemingly at random intervals, but especially when I "wake up" the latop in the morning. Is there some other setting I can alter to prevent it downloading any emails at any time unless I tell it to?

The puzzle
I've always liked the little popup box with the progress bar and success report that appears when you're downloading emails. Every time you installed a new copy of Outlook Express, you had to catch it in time to "pin" it so that it would subsequently stay open after downloading had fnished. You still get this box in Live Mail, and I've succeeded in "pinning" it, but it doesn't seem to appear of its own accord - only if you click the status bar at the bottom of the window during or after the download. Is there any way to make it appear on the screen of its own accord as soon as you click "Sy... Read more

A:Can't stop automatic downloading in Windows Live Mail

Hi PeterWeb,

Here's a thread addressing your WLM irritation for someone using Vista. Unfortunately it's implied that checking for new messages when that option is disabled is a bug - the workaround for which is to Work Offline until you want mail, then go online to download it, then Work Offline again.

I'll take a look at your puzzle when I have more time

Cheers,

I have recently upgraded to Win7 and Windows Live Mail 2012. I have multiple email accounts that I set up in Windows Live Mail. I have previously used Windows Live Mail (earlier versions) for this same process with no problem. However, I have set up my Yahoo account in WLM and I am getting an error message. Error message is as follows:
It says:

Unable to send or receive messages for the Yahoo (swilson933) account. Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity.

Server: 'plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0F
Protocol: POP3
Port: 995
Secure(SSL): Yes

I have checked and double checked my configuration for setting up yahoo mail and I have deleted the account and settings and recreated it and it would download emails initially but then the next day when I would open Windows Live Mail, it would not update with current messages.

I have checked and changed firewall settings - with no change in response.

Any suggestions regarding this issue would be so greatly appreciated as I am so frustrated as to why this is not working for me at this point.

Thank you,
Shona

Hi All,
I am running Outlook 2007 on a Windows Vista machine. I have recently set up a second email account in Outlook. I have no problems sending or receiving from either account, however when I recieve email for the new email account (not the defalut account by the way) I recieve the same message twice.

I've looked at the headers for the two different emails, and it appears that one is being sent to my default address. I obvioulsy don't have any forwards set up, or anything like that.

I was told it was a known issue with Outlook 2007, but nobody seem to have a work around for it.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks!

I am the only person to use my pc and I am the administrator. I have Windows XP and am using Internet Explorer7. I had no problems until, due to illness I didn't use pc for 2 months. I tried to update cccleaner but a windows error message came up. There was no error code. Today I've tried to open an attachment to an e-mail from my nephew but the same error message appeared. I then chose to save the attachment instead. The error message still appeared I pressed 'ok' on the error message and it disappeared. The attachment was saved to where I had instructed. The error message says 'C:\Documents and Settings\(personal name)\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\ the last part changes. Plus 'Windows cannot access the specified device path or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item'. I have emptied all temporary files etc. to no effect. I've taken copy of error message but can't upload it as 'invalid file' shows. What is wrong?

A:Links in Live Mail quit working

in WLM in options- READ
read all messages in plain text setting should be unchecked
If it is then try this
put a check mark in it then close WLM
look at the message again see if it works
if nothing- go back in and uncheck it
close Wlm
reopen it
and see if it now works

If not you might want to do a repair of Wlm
go to Control Panel
Pick Windows Live Essentials
Double click like you were uninstalling it but it will give you an option to Repair
Pick this option and see if it fixes it

I keep getting triplicate and duplicate mail from some recipients. Its not always the same recipients and it doesn't happen all of the time. It does appear to happen more often with one of the people I get regular mail from who distributes to a large distribution list.

An example is attached.

Any thoughts?

This seems like a mail server problem rather than a Windows Live problem. I've had this issue before, but usually it goes away...

Who hosts your email accounts?
How many email accounts do you have active in Windows Live?
Are there any other devices that intercept your email?

My CD Writer will no longer play Data or Audio CD's or record data when I try to back up my files onto a CD. This happened the first time I tried to use it after downloading XP SP2. I've tried several CD's and have tried uopdating the driver but I get the message there is no better driver available. I've also tried rolling back the driver, but it says there is no previous version. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the driver. The CD R-RW came with my (3 year old) Fujitsu Siemens computer and the manual does not identify the manufacturer. Under properties it simply gives "Standard CD-ROM Drives" as manufacturer.

When I try to use the writer I get in the event log an error message which says "The device, \Device\CdRom1 has a bad block".

Any ideas would be much appreciated.
