Mail Sent to Windows Live Mail from Domain Address is Not Received

Q: Mail Sent to Windows Live Mail from Domain Address is Not Received

Hi tech friends, I am helping an acquaintance who has installed Windows Live Mail and created two email accounts therein: one a regular Comcast.net account, and one for email sent to his domain, which is hosted by totalchoicehosting.com. However, he can't receive email sent to his own domain address. He is using the incoming and outgoing server settings prescribed by his web host, but the mail never arrives i n his in box in Windows Live Mail. Messages sent to the Comcast address do appear in Windows Live.

He is able to receive mail by going through mail2web.com.

What else can I try?

Preferred Solution: Mail Sent to Windows Live Mail from Domain Address is Not Received

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.)

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!

After clicking Sync/button, my Windows Live Mail does not even attempt to send or receive mail. No error occurs, at least none that I am aware of. Settings for POP etc. are same as on my other laptop. How do I get it to at least try to receive and send e/mail. I am using Windows Live mail 2009 (v.14), I don't want 2011, and 2010 can't be found anywhere.

Check your network to see whether your network is shutdown or off. And, check the sever settings of your Windows Live mail to see whether you have written the information in the right way.

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.

Until recently I could open Word documents attached to emails sent or received in Windows Live Mail. Suddenly this has stopped.

Other file types e.g. Excel still open if I double click on them or choose open - up comes a box that asks 'do you want to open this file? and I simply click 'open'. But for the past week or so I have been unable to open attached Word documents. If I double click on the word doc or click open the document opens in Wordpad. I have spent hours looking online and trying to sort this out.

Can anyone help me please? I want to be able to double click or hit the 'open' option and have the document open in Word, like it used to. I know I can use 'save as ' but it's more time consuming.

Can anyone think why this would just change like this?

Don't know whether this is the right forum for this question, but here goes :-)

The email provider I've been using for 15 years is closing down, and I'll lose my current email address. It's the one which identifies my Windows Live ID, and which I've used to access my Microsoft account, buy Windows 8 etc. etc.

I've read that you can't rename a Microsoft account, that is, change the user name (email address). Am I right in assuming that I'll have to open a new Windows account (new Windows Live ID) when I get the new email address?

When I go to WLM, 2 accounts are shown, both with the same e-mail address. One is the default. I always use the default account. I would like to remove the 2nd one because I see no need for it. The problem is, if I compose an e-mail & put it in draft before sending, when I do send the message it is sent from the 2nd account. and not the default account where I typed the original message. This does not make sense to me and I don't know why I have 2 accounts with the same address. If I remove the 2nd account will my drafts be sent from the default account?

Hope I make myself clear.

Vista's Windows Mail put in both the name and the address. It was reassuring that you were using the correct address. It would sure be great if the new stuff (IE, Mail, Windows 7) made all the interface changes and so-called enhancements optional.

I have been using WLM for several years now, and have had many problems with it. My recent problem seems to be that it likes to duplicate mail coming to the same address. The email will show up twice with the same time stamp and date. Also within the past few weeks I was getting spam mail from my contacts that I know would not send out to me. What could be causing this? I have since changed my password for my emails, and the spam has dissipated for now, but I get spam from other outside emails. I know that could be a matter of filtering. Is there anything I can do for this? I hope I've explained it enough.

A:Windows Live Mail duplicating emails from same address

Check your Accounts settings -- Tools>Accounts>email account>Properties>Advanced. You may have two copies of the same account listed. Remove one of them.
If your antivirus program has an email scanning option, turn it off. Some antivirus programs don't cooperate well with Windows Live.
Who is the actual email provider? Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo? Check the settings for those as well.
As for getting spam from your contacts, that's not really something you can control. I'm sure your contacts aren't intentionlally sending it to you, and there may not be much they can do about it either. It's quite easy to spoof the sender's address to make it appear it is coming from someone your know. Or, their account may have been hacked. The only thing you can do is set the spam filters as high as possible and don't open anything that looks suspciious, regardless of who it comes from.

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.
After some searching, I learned I could use "windows live mail" (already on my comp) because it would support hotmail addresses.
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.
The "set-up"process is pretty straight forward & quick on window live mail - but after several attempts - can't get addional account to work.
Do I need to manually set incoming/outgoing info??
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Windows 7 Contacts Folder and Live Mail Address Book Not in Sync?

The Contacts folder is left over from Window Vista and if you were to go to the trouble of "reinstating" Windows Mail (the previous mail version that came only with Vista) then it would use the Contacts folder. If you have downloaded and installed WLM (a component of Windows Live Essentials) it has its own contacts database within the <user>/appdata folder tree. You can access this database only through the WLM program (and the website contacts.live.com if you sign-in since that site mirrors your "signed-in" contacts list). If you don't sign-in then you are viewing your "not-signed-in" contacts list in WLM which is also located in the appdata folder tree. If you have placed any contacts in the old Username/Contacts folder, you can import them into WLM.

Hi, All.
Have been running Vista (ugh!) on my laptop for 4 years now, but lately (and I have no idea why) after I have collected my Mail, I am then faced with a request to approve replies to some, not all, of the mail I have just downloaded thus:

"A program is attempting to send the following e-mail message on your behalf:

Subject: Re: <subject of new email>

Would you like to send the message?"

Send/Do not send

There doesn't seem to be any way of turning this response off, and I sometimes have to sit there for several minutes clicking "do not send" until they have all finished. Really annoying.

Anyone seen this before? Any and all help appreciated.

Don I might be way off track here mate but was the Outlook account the same email address as you have set up in WLM?

Just a thought you might try adding an account to WLM using the old address and password. I did this with my old account from my service provider then went to a Hotmail account.
Now admittedly it was still within WLM but worth a try.

What I will do is try and add my work account (Outlook) to my WLM and see if it works.

PS It added the account but I have to get the POP and STMP settings right first.

Microsoft is "upgrading" people's  @outlook.com, @hotmail.com, @live.com, and @msn.com accounts, to a new Outlook.com (built upon the latest Office 365 infrastructure), which is INcompatible with Live Mail 2012 (and presumably older versions as well):  Effective late June 2016, Windows Live Mail 2012 will no longer synchronize emails, contacts, and calendar events from these email accounts.
People who use Windows Live Mail 2012 to connect to other email services, including Gmail, Yahoo Mail, or other services that use POP3 or IMAP protocols, do not need to take action. 
Is this another veiled attempt to force users to "upgrade" from Windows 7?
Users can still access their e-mail via their web browser(s).   Or they can use the new Outlook.com and/or a Mail app on Windows 8.1/10

I have been using WLM for some years. Yesterday, it stopped sending emails and now just leaves them in the Outbox. Here is most of what appears in the error box:

The message could not be sent because the server rejected the sender's email address. The sender's email address was '[email protected]'.
Subject 'Newsflash'
Server Error: 553

I don't send many emails and don't send emails with large attachments, so I don't know why the "over your daily relay limit" message appears.

Port 80 has worked for a long time and works (sends emails) from the other computers on the network, so it doesn't seem like I should need to select a different port number.

The "My server requires authentication" box is selected/ticked.

None of the settings have been changed for a long time.

I've had a problem ever since Windows Live Mail was upgraded to the 2011 version.

I've been able to receive e-mail regularly and send some messages, but apparently some of my sent mail never reaches the recipient. I've now had several people tell me they never got my messages. I have multiple accounts from different service providers, and it doesn't seem to matter which account I use to send - some recipients never get the messages, and they are NOT in a spam folder etc. particularly Gmail users have had trouble receiving my mail, but again a few messages have gone through. one person didn't get about 5 of my e-mails, but one came through so this seems quite irregular.

All my accounts in Live Mail use the same smtp server, which is my ISP's server. I have checked that its correct, and as mentioned it works half the time. I also use the same server on my laptop, and it seems to work fine. the server does not use authentication etc.

so the combination that doesn't seem to work is Live Mail and the outgoing server. is there anything I can do to pinpoint the problem further?

A:Windows Live Mail 2011 - sent mail leaves outbox but disappears

Thanks for the message. I found it through Google.

This feels much more complicated than using the Outbox in Window XP

After editing an email when you go to Send it
there is a little drop-down warning box that it will be sent automatically
next time you are connected to the internet.

This time can seem erratic even when you are on a wireless connection all the time.

So you cannot use Outbox to double check.

I have several mail accounts.
I have now created 2 HTML mail signatures incl. a logo and attached them to 2 different mail accounts.
Problem 1: If I create a new email, then no matter what mail accounts is set, it will always put in the default mail signature.

So, I looked in forums and removed the auto insert signature in all emails, as someone suggested.

Problem 2: If I create a new email I have to insert it manually myself. (When I do it here, the insert menu has the choice of 2 signatures)

Problem 3: If I insert the one with the image, the image is not shown, only the object frame. And there is no image in the final email in the receivers inbox. (When I do it here, the insert menu has the choice of 2 signatures)

ONLY, if I REPLY on an already received email and then click insert mail signature.. THEN the mail signature comes correct with the image. (Here the insert menu only has 1 signature, the one attached to the mail account).

Has anyone found the reason and solution for this? MICROSOFT!!
PS: its on Windows 7.

Windows Live Mail 2011 - Changing Your Saved Email Password

Read other 4 answers

I use the new Windows Live Mail client to access two IMAP accounts, Gmail and one provided by my University. Gmail works such that whenever you send an email through it, it automatically puts a copy in the Sent Mail folder. So if the WLM client tries to put a copy there as well, you end up with two copies of the email in the Sent Mail folder. The University IMAP account doesn't work like this. A copy will only appear in the Sent Mail folder for that account if the client program puts a copy there.

So the problem is the way WLM handles this. Most IMAP settings are specific to the account. You right click on an account, go to settings, and then go to the IMAP section and specify the folders and stuff like that. However, the option of whether or not WLM puts a copy of an email you send in the Sent Mail folder can only be set for the entire client.

In Tools->Options->Send is the checkbox for this option. If it's checked, I get a single copy of sent mail in the University account and two copies in Gmail. If it is unchecked I get no copies for the University account and just one for Gmail.

Does anyone know a way to fix this?

edit: Oh, and a side question, is it possible to make WLM stop showing the number of unread emails in the trash or spam? They're in there because I have no intention of reading them. I don't care how many are unread.

When I sent email using OL6 Express to others, the receipients keep saying the mail arrived as 'Bulk Mail', how does it happen? Where do I configure the mail not to send as Bulk? Pls advise.

I am running WIN/XPP, Outlook Express 6.


A:Outlook Express mail appeared as Bulk Mail when received

Sounds like they might be suggesting you are sending email to them using CC (carbon copy) with a lot of other address's included. Its generally not good practice to use CC as it exposes all address's to all recipients. If you use BCC (blind carbon copy) the individual recipients do not see who else is getting a copy of the email.

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.

Our old XP machine harddrive has just died! This has OE6 on it... I'm now on a Win7 PC with Windows Live Mail... I am trying to find an import option to bring in all my old backed-up folders in the dbx format without any luck.

Any suggestions? I did try Thunderbird then gave up!!

A:Importing Outlook Express mail into Windows Live Mail

I did it a long time ago and cannot recall my method.

If you pound google, you will find numerous methods. If one doesn't work, move on to the next. I do recall that it is a hit and miss affair, so be prepared to experiment.

Primary advice: be sure you have multiple copies of your DBX folders and keep one copy of each folder safe and unaltered. Try the various methods you discover on a copy of the DBX folders.

Okay, so a few years back, I "upgraded" to Windows Live Mail because support for Outlook Express was gone by the wayside. This was using Windows XP, and I still have the original hard drive & access to all of its files.

In making the transition at the time, I backed up my active Outlook Express files to import into WLM should something go wrong with the native importing (or, should the process erase the original files or some other ridiculousness).

What I didn't do was make copies of my old, archived email.

When the application turned out to be a huge mistake, I learned that the files from Outlook Express had been taken over by WLM and were no longer accessible from OE. I attempted to transition the archived E-mail from WLM to another client. No luck.

Also, attempting to find out from someone where the files from Windows Live Mail resided (or what format they were in) at the time resulted in absolutely no luck, either.

It's years later, and I still find use a couple times a month for the information I'd had archived there.

Is there anyone here who can help me? Or is this an absolutely lost cause?

Sincerely frustrated,

What email program is on your old machine?

If you're going to be trying stuff to get your old mail on your new Win7, be sure to make a backup of all your old mail folders before you do, and put the backup file where you'll know where it is. Probably on your old machine desktop, wouldn't hurt to put another copy on your Win7 desktop as well. Loss hurts!

Questions... are you able to do an "Import" from X, (X being the location of your old (or previous) emails?

Are you able to do an "Export" of the same emails to a file?

Does Windows Live Mail 2011 have the option to "Import emails From" or "Export" to?

One thing you can do is: make a COPY of your old "Inbox" folder and place it, (the "COPY"), on your current Win 7 desktop. Have Windows Live Mail copy it from there. If when you do, it does not then contain items such as "attachments, etc., you could simply delete all the emails in it and try something else. Your original (old emails) are still where they always were, on your other machine or external drive.

My machine is a dual/boot Windows Vista & Windows7. For email I use Windows Mail on both. I know it is oft said that Windows Mail won't work on Win7, trust me it works just fine. The transfer of all my email folders from Vista to Win7 was a painless, simple, walk in the park. Everything transferred, folders and all, nothing was lost.
