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.)

yo guys, i got a real problem here.

yesterday, i tried to send an email, but it said that my ip was blocked/banned/watever because it had viruses or something in it. it said that i could remove myself by clicking the button at the bottom of the page. but it also said that i should remove the virus, or i will be blocked again. so i thought is hould get rid of the virus before i remove myself from the list, and i got crazy! i ran avira, avg, windows defender, adaware, and norton internet scanning to get rid of it. result: 33 tracking cookies deleted.

so today, i turned on comp. I have three emails. Two are inbox accounts and one is a myway account. My Thunderbird has the two inbox accounts in it. So as a "test", I clicked my first email account (in thunderbird) and sent a message to the second. 15 minutes later, 30 minutes later, it still didnt show up in my second email. i was like WTF?

So I sent a email to my myway account. I went into myway.com and checked email, and it also didnt show up. So then i sent a email to my inbox.com account THROUGH my myway accoutn, and it still isnt showing up.

guys, wtf is going on?

Hi, i have a windows 10 account problem thats stopping me signing into xbox live.

i changed my windows 10 sign in email address on the microsoft account page, i wanted all my accounts to use gmail.

1st, i added my gmail account. Then i made my gmail account my default account email address

That created issues on onedrive, and i didnt want that headache, so i changed my sign in email address back to outlook and removed my gmail account from the accounts page. Now, when i go to settings - accounts, it still displays my gmail address, which is - im sure - why i cant login to xbox live on my pc. The following pic should read (username)@outlook.com, not (username)@gmail.com
Any ideas?

Hi all,

Let me explain you my problem : I am a programmer (but it is not the problem ), i've a program (created in autoit) used by about a hundred users on Win 7 at my work.

My users run my program from the network : \\myserver\share\program.exe Nothing in local.

When i update my program, i replace my program.exe on the network with a new version (while it is being used by users). The name is still program.exe but it is now in version2 (versus version 1 before)

So i have overwritten my program.exe with a new program.exe, the version 1 does'nt exist anymore but users are still executing it (it was run from network). I need now to restart my program on the computers, so they execute the new version .

=> to restart, i send an order to the program, and my code do this: run the exe again (another instance), get the new PID (process id), send the actuel PID to the new process, and send an exit. The new program wait until the old process die and then goes on.

When i restart my program, the users which where executing the version1 should be now in version 2 after restart.

PROBLEM => sometimes it is the old version which is run after restart ! (the version 1), even several days after i've updated it (the version 1 does'nt exist anymore ! it is replace with the new version (same name)...)

it looks like a cache problem from local pc, on windows 7, but how to deal with it ?...

In this way, we start the program, before killing the old one. My 'cache' probleme may co... Read more

I can open an email and open an attachment on that email.

I can look on my harddrive and find the same email text file easily enough on my harddrive, and open that text file using notepad.

But I cannot find where the attachment(s) is stored on the harddrive? I've looked everywhere.

The reason is that I want to write a program that will archive windows live emails - and their attachments.

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.....

https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/969165

.....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.

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.

Answer: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've read information regarding the steps to import email from Outlook Express (XP) into Windows Live Mail (Vista), but, my question pertains to how that works when we already have quite a bit of email in the Windows Live Mail folders. I had to temporarily swap out systems to the old XP computer while checking into a problem with the Vista system and accumulated quite a bit of new email into Outlook Express that now needs to be moved into the Windows Live Mail folders to bring that back up-to-date. Will that just be added to what is already there or will it overlay anything? Just need to know how that process will impact current contents of the email folders in the Vista PC.

Thanks.

Set up windows 7 with microsft live email. emails com in and go out ok. emails with attachemtns inbound are ok. when I send an email out with a photo ( have not triesd other attachements) it splits it up into 20 to 30 emails with jiberish and no photo and get an error notification. i have outlook on this as well and it works fine in bound and out bound. I have used the same settings. again this is only when there is a photo attached when I see this problem. Anyone have any suggestions?

Answer:windows live email splitting up email w/ attachement

Just a guess. But, I think it is your ISP. Somtimes they limit what cant be sent out with POP, to stop spam. For your information there are two ways to send a photo; as an attachment and as part of the email. You may want to look into that.

Hello
Two things have recently happened
1/ just had my W10 auto upgrade and all is working well.
2/ found out that my email provider virgin.net is ceasing to exist.

I'm running this email through windows live mail and all seems to be working well.
I have always used windows for my email and would like to continue doing that but how do I move all my historical emails over to a new provider before Virgin stop/cancel their product.
If I take their BB they will move me over to their email client free of charge keeping all my stored emails, but if not it seems I will lose all ability to see them anymore.

I've had this email address for over 20 years and have some very important emails I don't want to lose.

I can see under file there is import / export options and initially I have exported all my emails to a folder on my desktop so I've got them.
Once I have chosen a new email tag is it just a case of importing them back into there and also letting everyone know my new tag and changing all my email site tags too.
What a pain.

I wonder if anyone can help with this - I set up a Microsoft account and received the verification email but the blue "Verify my email" button seems to be inactive - .i.e. when I mouse over it, the pointer does not change to a hand, just a cursor, so when I click on it nothing appears to happen.

This button contains the blue text in the quoted text below (except I've edited out my real email address for this post of course).

I've tried in Internet Explorer and Firefox and the verify button appears to be inactive in both.

Hello everyone,
my first post out there.
To start with:
I have bought a domain comradescotland.com for business purposes. I have done so using Google service that was a reseller of a domain owned by enom.com. So basically after I paid, I had my gmail set up and a domain. However google does not provide web hosting, so I have used Vistaprint. They asked me to put 2 links into DNS settings which I did. Since then my gmail has broken and i am unable to receive anything to it from my customers. I have already restarded all my DNS settings to default ones as they were previously and cancelled service with Vistaprint (so I don't have a website now), but email remains broken.

Google support autogenerated ticket and earlier vistaprint support team managed to send me messages onto my email ([email protected]), however when I try to send myself anything from any random email address, I get a bounceback that email does not exist. It causes me infinite trouble as I am losing a lot of emails with invoices and client enquiries.

Is there any way to fix it?

My brother uses Microsoft Outlook for his email. The email host is Godaddy ("secureserver"). He uses POP.

If he doesn't have Outlook open then his emails dont stay on the Godaddy server. It is almost like they just get deleted. If he has Outlook open he will be able to download any new emails that come in. If he doesn't press Send/Receive for a hour, all of the emails received in that hour ARE THERE and WILL BE DOWNLOADED. However, if he doesnt have Outlook open then he will completely MISS all of the emails in that hour.

If he logs into the Godaddy webmail server rather than using Outloko there is never anything in there.

What in the world is going on do you think?

Ok for some reason when I try to delete an email from my inbox, it doesnt actually delete it, but draws a line through it?

How do I change the settings so it just fully deletes it?

Also, I seem to be linked up with a bunch of RSS feeds that are in my "Unread Mail"? How do I unlink with them so I dont continually get a bunch of junk mail like this?

Thanks.

Answer:Outlook doesnt delete email, only draws a line thru it?

That suggests you are using IMAP rather than a POP3 mail server. When using IMAP, the messages remain until you Purge them.

I have Windows 7 with Window Live mail. Since I did the update for Windows Live Mail, the pictures that I try to send through email are smaller with portions of the picture cut off. They don't allow the full view of a picture to be posted anymore. How can I correct this problem? I did not experience this problem before. Thank you for your support, Tommy.

Answer:Portion of email pictures are cut off, not a full view anymore?

Ok, I just found this out. For those who are experiencing the same problem that I thought I did. There is no problem after all. If you upgraded your Windows Live Mail Account, your email messages now goes to a place called: SkyDrive. So when your email messages opens up by who ever you sent them to, it will open up with SkyDrive. To see the full view of the picture you sent them, they just have to double click on the picture, it will get larger with a full view. Pretty neat feature after all. This info may be of some help to some of you. Good luck, Tommy.

Hi,
I recently added a Mozilla browser to my Win XP desktop, decided I didn't like it, and removed it. I went back to using the Internet Explorer browser. I use MS Outlook. Before I installed and then removed Mozilla, it used to be I could click on a URL link in any Outlook email, and the IE browser would automatically open it up. Now, it doesn't -- If I have a URL link mentioned in an email, I have to copy and paste it directly into the browser. If I just click on it in the email, it doesn't do anything.

How can I make it go back to opening up directly when I click on it in my email?

I already tried running the regsvr32 *.dll commands mentioned in another post on this forum, but it hasn't worked.

Any help is greatly appreciated. THANKS!

I have a new ASUS notebook and it uses Windows 8. On my home pc I have Windows Vista and was able to set up multiply email accounts in Window Live Mail. (my charter, my hubby charter, 2 school google accounts and yahoo)
I was able to read mail coming thru our main email acct (my charter), if an email came thru that needed to go to my hubbys account or another account I was able to drop and drag it to the other account listed on the screen.

I have most of my emails set up on my new ASUS notebook. Is there any way to drop and drag emails from one account to another? I can drag the email and hover over the new email account, but it does not drag it.

Thanks for any help. I am new to the notebook thing and windows 8.

I am using bellsouth email on Windows Mail. I am connected to Comcast as my ISP, and I cant seem to send any emails. I can receive emails just fine.

I can only send when I reconnect to bellsouth.

Whats wrong? Ive tried changing the outgoing mail port to 587 with no luck =/

Answer:Trying to send Bellsouth email while connected to Comcast. Doesnt Work

Comcast is blocking the sending of the Bellsouth mail. When I had windows 98, I was able to send via any service. With the bloosiming of spam, I received the notice that this convenience would be stopped. I was able to send through my ISP, with any return address that I wanted, but it had to go through my ISP.

Not being familiar with Comcast, your situation may differ, but there more than an even chance that this is the situation.

Take care.

Hello All thanx in advance for the help!!!

I am running Windows XP Pro and Firefox 1.5.something and I use yahoo as my email

when i compose an email using the return key to keep the text within the window it is fine. when i use control v to paste text into the email it also stays withing the email compose box.

however when i send the email to somebody it becomes a huge long unbroken string of text
so that an email that is say 60 lines vertically is now 4 lines vertically???

also i cant use my right click to copy and paste all the time
sometines i can (like in IMFrame) but sometimes I cant like in email--but the copy part works fine except when i right click in the body of my email message to paste i get a screen that has the last 2 options as view source and view page info instead of the one with a paste option i can get around this by using shift V to paste it but its like the computert is stuck somewhere.

also if i try and use IE instead of firefox to read my email if i click a link on an email it shuts the page down completely???

HELP???

did i post in the right place at least?

is this an XP or browser or ??? problem

Hi guys i am adding an animated gif to an email, using safari. When i send it to a Microsoft outlook email it doesn't show. When i send it to my self it works fine. Does anybody know why?

Answer:Microsoft Outlook doesnt play animated GIF embedded in email

Not an animated one. Check the emails you receive and I don't think you'll ever see one with an animation within it, simply because of the limitations of emails and the email clients that read them. You can obviously put in static graphics, but as DerbyDad says the recipient would need to have their system set to automatically download all images for that to work, something a sensible email user would never do.

Answer:Removal of email (gmail) account from maill app that I do not have access to anymore

Hi,
If you can't remove or change the credentials on your gmail account in the Windows 8 Mail app because it keeps trying to connect to the account, we could try this:
1.Close Windows 8 Mail app.
2.Disconnect from the internet (either turn off WiFi, or disconnect your network cable.)
3.Open Mail app.
4.Click on Settings on Charms bar.
5.Click on Accounts.
6.Click on gmail account.
7.Menu should open as normal, make changes or remove account as you desire.
8.If account still tries to connect when you do this, shutdown/restart and go back to step 3.Karen Hu

I am using Windows Live Email on both my PC and new laptop. When I open emails on my laptop they do not show on my PC even if I mark them as unread. How can I open them on my laptop and be able to open them again on my PC when I get home?

Answer:Live email on Win 7 PC and laptop?

You need to configure Windows Live Mail to leave messages on the server, so that they can be retrieved again with the second computer. In the menus, "Tools > Accounts", highlight your account and click the Properties button. In the Properties sheet that opens, select the Advanced tab and tick the box "Leave a copy of messages on the server". Don't leave them on the server indefinitely, otherwise mail retrieval will get progressively slower as the program has to scan through all messages to find which are new messages. [You may have to press the "Alt" key to display the Menu bar.]The alternative is to use IMAP instead of POP3. With IMAP, your email program "synchronises" with the server, which continues to host the messages. You then have access to all mail, including your *sent* messages in both computers.

Subject line was NOT something that we requested and 2. the body of the email referred to an account number in which just the last 4 numbers was stated and we could not associate those numbers with any account at any bank we deal with. I called the company known by us which was referred to in the email and was told by their security that is was a "fraud email". Their instructions were to simply delete it and run a virus scan. I did but I chose to use their web form and sent the email to them before deleting it. Be careful folks!!
Oh yes, there was a link in the email. Did I click on it? You bet I did----but that was ALL I did.

To give it a start, I am no Bill Gates, with limited, but somewhat useable computer knowledge. Just a retired old, "want to be", Dirt Farmer, who has a small Bee & Greenhouse Vegetable Propagation Business, going on for the last 2 years.

My operating system is Win 7 x64 PRO
I installed Windows Live using the manual install for my ISP with POP3 and SMTP. I receive mail but cannot send it because a message pops up that it cannot find my mail server. It lists the proper SMTP server in the message but no go. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Windows Live several times but it sets up the account automatically each time with the same problem. I even set up a new account but got the same problem. I have used repair and it said that the repair was successful, but I still can't send mail. It is very strange that Thunderbird cannot be used on a 64 bit system when it was fine when I participated in the Win 7 Beta.

Error messages are as follows :
Server cannot be found SMTP-HVC.RR.COM
Socket error 11004
Windows Live ID error 0x800CCC0D

Answer:Cannot send email on Windows Live

Welcome.

I think that the proboblem is with the settings. What you have to do is go to the website of your email provider (MSN, Yahoo etc) and get the correct settings; ports, etc). Even though it was set up automatically, many times it is done incorrectly. You will be interested in the SMTP settings (those are used for outgoing mail)

My Windows Live email client has apparently been hijacked because it's sending out commercial messages from my email address. I've tried 2 anti virus scans:
Malwarebytes Free Virus Scanner and
TrendMicro http://us.trendmicro.com/us/home/
and they did find a couple of viruses and worms, (which were eliminated, of course), but that didn't solve the email problem. I really don't want to change emails if I don't absolutely have to, so anyone out there have any suggestions?

And by the way, even if I do change emails, won't the old, virused email client still continue to send out these commercial emails in my name? Is there a way to close down my Windows Live Email?

Hi Sue

Sorry that you are having problems. The first thing that I would try is to go to the website of my email provider and change the password. See if that helps. Keep us posted. There arre many members here, one will surely have an idea. I will keep you in mind, also.
