Question: Windows Live Mail with Gmail show as not read in WLM when read in Gmail

Can I set Windows Live Mail to show emails that have been read in Gmail to show as Unread?
I have a Gmail account which I download all emails into WLM
I read the emails on Gmail sometimes when out, but don't want this to update to WLM as read as I will deal with the emails when home

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.)

So this just started today (like an hour ago). When I get an email in Gmail it shows in my Inbox. If I open it to read it, and then close it, it still shows in my Inbox, but if I refresh then it disappears. Only unread emails show. If I check All Mail it shows the read emails, and shows the tag "Inbox", so they are still there, but just not visible. If I check them as unread in the All Mail view they show again in Inbox, but again, once read, they disappear. It's happening in both Chrome and Firefox. Anyone else having this issue?

Hi,

I am in the process of switching my internet service from Bell Dial Up to the Bell Turbo Hub. This new hub will allow me to receive high speed service in an area that is not currently offering high speed at speeds up to 7MB/S.
The problem is that I will have to change my email address when I cancel the dial up service. This means that I will need to set up a new email address in Hotmail or Gmail. I chose Gmail and have just set up a new account.

I also use Windows Live One mail as a resident client due to fact that I have many committees that I belong to and have a great deal of folders with correspondence I must keep. I have two questions;

1. Once I cancel my Bell Dial Up service will all of the emails filed in my folders in WLM be retained. I would think so because they are now on my hard Drive but I would appreciate some confirmation?

2. Can I set up Gmail in WLM to allow for continued filing of incoming emails to their respective folders? If so how do I do that?

Your help on this is greatly appreciated.

Thanking you in advance.

As long as you don't delete the account from WLM and as long as WLM doesn't have some kind of serious problem and as long as a disk failure doesn't wipe them out. You do have at least one backup copy, right?

I'm using Windows 7, Internet Explorer 9, and Windows Live Mail via my Comcast.net e-mail server. I wish to continue to use WLM, but when my son visited several months ago, he installed Mozilla Firefox because that's the ISP he uses. He also installed his Gmail account and gave me a Gmail account as well (I never asked for it).

Fast forward: Until about a week ago, I never had any problems with my WLM, but I've recently noticed that I'm not receiving all my e-mails through WLM. I noticed this because I recently got an iPad 2 (e-mail is also set up for my Comcast account) and it was showing e-mails that were not showing up in WLM. This is also happening in reverse, i.e., e-mails appearing in WLM are not all showing up on my iPad.

So, I jumped over to Gmail and it was loaded with ALL my e-mails, past and current. Also, my Google calendar which I rely upon and which has always worked in Internet Explorer, is no longer loading and is in a redirect loop. However, if I go over to Firefox, Google calendar loads just fine and I can also load Google calendar on my iPad. When I tried to add my Comcast account to Gmail, it said it already exists.

I don't like the intrusions by Google and from all I've heard, they're not only famous for causing conflicts with other ISP's and e-mail programs, but they're also introducing upgrades to their system which makes intrusions even worse.

I'm assuming you are using WLM if so try this
In WLM go to tools then accounts click your WLM default account then properties then advanced in the window that appears and you should have this,check or uncheck leave mail on server then send yourself an Email and see if it works I hope this helps and works for you.

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.

My ISP is Orange FR and until a recent shut down of internet activity whilst Orange were performing repairs to the system, gmail worked well in Windows Live Mail.
Now I can't get it to send or receive emails in Live Mail, please can anyone help? My OS is windows 7 and I have 4 accounts in my windows live mail set up, one being the main ISP of Orange.
This is really frustrating so appreciate any advice to help resolve the problem.

Answer:windows live mail and gmail issue

This is a long shot but I wonder if Windows Live Mail thinks that you are offline. I take it that IE works ok.
I would suspect a change of Orange France settings but you have 4 accounts. On the safe side checkk each setting again.

My ISP, Shentel, now uses Google mail as email servers. I run a business and in the past have been able to send bulk type emails, broken down into groups of 80 or less recipients (per my ISP instructions) and had no issues. I have about 10-12 of these groups of 80 or less recipients and I send each group seperately throughout the day. In otherwords, I don't send all 10-12 groups at once.
 
I only send these group emails 2 - 4 times a year, so I'm not sending 10 ga-billion emails.
 
Recenlty (say in the last 6 months), I send out these bulk emails and the emails are not delivered. They are not stuck in the Outbox and they show as being Sent. I have contacted some of the recipients individually and they indicated they did not receive the group emails, but do receive individual emails.
 
I contacted my ISP and they just walked me through my Windows Live Mail settings, but he was not able to offer any other help.
 
Any help appreciated.

Answer:Bulk emails using Windows Live mail through Gmail

It sounds like there's a syncing issue between Windows Live and Gmail.
 
Are you able to get to the Gmail admin page for your email account via a web browser? From there, make sure it's configure to use IMAP.
 
You may also want to try another email client, like Outlook or Thunderbird.

Answer:gmail emails duplicated in Windows Live Mail Inbox.

Try this -
When in the live mail program as you look at the folders under your email account you will see an inbox on top. Under the inbox is a folder named Gmail, this folder expands to show "all mail" which is all emails in your box under one folder. Live mail when showing "unread emails" displays the inbox and the "all mail" folder at the same time. This creates the duplicates shown in the unread messages tab. To fix this click on the gmail folder and right click on the "all mail" folder and select Hide this folder.

Hi,

I'm switching cable providers so I will be needing a new email account.

Is it better to use those internet email accounts or use my new cable's email like before?

I need POP / SMTP mostly and I don't really like looking at web mail applications so I guess the interface doesn't really matter. Unless there's something special about the web applications that I'm not aware of since I never used them. Please indicate.

One thing I liked about Live Mail is that it has free push email it seems. Although I can technically forward mail to Live when I need push email since I don't normally use it and require that urgency. But I guess it's good to have that option in case.

Also, if I use the internet mails, will it prefilter SPAM? And would I have to log into the web site to see which ones are "false"? My current cable company doesn't filter SPAM so my Outlook security suite plugin does. It also has this "Junk E-Mail" folder and I don't know how things go into there. But sometimes I notice it catches wrong things but at least I get to check the folder in one place. I would hate to have to log into a Web Site just to check my SPAM folder.

Thanks for any input!

How do I set it up, so my address book appears on the PC as well as on the net, and if I update or modify anything in it, it also updates on the web end?? Thanx folks.

Also, is this application the BEST browser for e-mail (Gmail)?? Maybe there is something batter to use with gmail?? Thanx folks.

Answer:Windows Live Mail on Windows 7 and gmail

You can setup Windows Live Mail (WLM) to handle Gmail without going back and forth. I have mine setup to retrieve mail from several accounts. I don't use Gmail but you might check to see if it has an "Export" function for the address book then "Import" that book into WLM. There's no automatic update between the various email providers. That's up to you. If you keep your address book on WLM, you can send and receive email on all your accounts there and not worry about keeping all the others in sync.

Is there any way to connect my Gmail account to the Mail Metro App without having to use my Live ID? I have absolutely no desire to tie all my stuff to a MS Live ID. Just want to be able to check my mail.

I have already installed Skype desktop to get around the Live ID crap for the metro version, and I will install Thunderbird if needed, but if I can find a way around it I will use the built in mail client.

Thanks

Geeve

Answer:Connect Gmail to mail metro app without live ID?

Hi geeve420,

I cannot respond to your first choice because I do not use the metro stuff; however, just in case you decide to use Thunderbird as an alternative, I can only give you a +1 for that choice because it is easy to setup, offers POP3 access, and looks nice to boot! I have mine set to auto-check for new mail when first opened. I'm sure you are already aware of these benefits but I just like Thunderbird so much, I couldn't resist a response to that end. Good luck with getting your first choice working.

I've been using Outlook Express for years, however it will no longer accept new email accounts so I moved to Windows Live Mail. Loved it to bits, easy, fast, friendly. Everything I wanted.Then the first Microsoft windows update came down and I could no longer read my email. Sure it still came down all right and I could read the titles but no content, just empty emails, even those I'd read before.So I uninstalled Live mail and went back to Outlook Express. Still not happy so I reinstalled Live Mail again. I could read the messages once more! Until... The next update from Microsoft arrived and here we go again. Headers only, no content.If I go to hotmail via IE7 I can read them OK but in Live Mail the emails are empty.Any Ideas?

I set up a gmail account a couple of years ago (as a precaution when it looked like tiscali might die a sudden death). I've never really used it, but I've just tried sending a few emails and noticed that emails I send (using the gmail account) from Outlook Express then immediately appear in the Sent folder of the gmail webmail.Not only is this not what I want (as I have a copy in my OE Sent items), I find it rather odd given that gmail has a setting that removes received (Inbox) items from gmail webmail once they have been accessed with POP (e.g. downloaded to OE), so begs the question as to why gmail wants to keep copies of sent items.Or is there some setting in gmail that I haven't been able to locate?

Ive been having a problem migrating the e-mail from my old XP machine onto my new Windows 7 PC. Ive tried several guides and even the auto import function of windows 7. From the research Ive done, I believe the problem stems from the fact the folders file on my old PC is a read only file. I cant seem to alter this. If I copy the file to another location and alter the properties to read-write then apply and exit, if I return to the file it is read only again. If I try to import this read only file it claims to have been successful but in fact it does not work and the files in live mail remain empty. Am I doing something wrong or do I need to fix the file as read-write to make the import function work properly?

Hi Nate

did you move the folders wher WLM keeps its files etc? might be permissions.

If not and you know the folder where the calendar is, if you boot in safe mode you might be able to kill it. Just make sure you back up calenders first in case

Gmail supports importing contacts from CSV format so you need to export the contacts to a CSV file from XP then from the brower, log into gmail, click on Contacts then click on More->Import then click again on Import and select the CSV file.

Once you have setup the Gmail from Windows 8, the contacts should be there.

I recently switched from Windows Live Hotmail to Gmail.
I imported all my Hotmail emails and contacts over to my Gmail account without any problems, however I have a couple of questions:

1. When I type a few letters into the "To:" field, Gmail gives me some contact suggestions in the drop-down box. However it only gives me very few suggestions. I figured out that this is because the majority of my imported contacts only have the email address listed in the "Instant Messaging" field. (as opposed to the "Email" field)

Is there a way I can copy/shift all of the addresses listed in the "Instant Messaging" section to the "Email" section? (Without sending an email to everyone on my contact list)
2. When I was using Hotmail, my Windows Live Messenger contacts would automatically be added to my Hotmail contact list. Is there any way for new contacts added in Live Messenger to be automatically added to my Gmail contact list?

Hope that made sense... Let me know if I should clarify haha

Hey folks,

I've got two quick questions regarding Gmail and Windows mail. I've spent a lot of time using Gmail and have gotten use to the interface and what not. I recently decided to try Windows Mail (the program) and set it up with my Gmail account through POP. It connected and downloaded every single email that I've written over the past year (all 3,000) including all of my 'conversation' emails from my wife (we basically chat through Gmail). I had over fifteen different folders they were stored in, so I've now I've got 3,000 unorganized 'unopened' emails sitting there.

My question is this: If I went through and organized all of this stuff, would there be any point? Is Windows Mail any good, does it do anything the Gmail interface doesn't?

Also, is there any way that any future emails that I put into Gmail folders (within Gmail, at work), can be automatically put into the correct corresponding folder in Windows Mail?

Thanks in advance,

Josh Hicks

I use Windows Mail to view emails from my Gmail account. I set it up and have been using it without any problems for a couple of years.

However, when I opened Windows Mail today, I was prompted to enter my User Name and Password with the following message:

"Logon to pop.gmail.com

Please verify that both the user name and password are correct for your mail server."

I enter my user name and password and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. When it does work, it starts downloading emails from back in 2009.

Is this a problem at Gmail's end, as I haven't made any changes to my email account?

Thanks
 

Answer:Windows Mail and Gmail

I suggest you sign in to your gmail account via web browser and review your settings there. I'm also inclined to think you should change your password if you haven't recently done so.

In Windows Mail, do you have your gmail account set to "Leave a copy on the server"? That seems to be the way you have it set since it recently started downloading emails from back in 2009. So, in addition to signing in to gmail via web browser to check settings, check your settings in Windows Mail. If you have it set to "Leave a copy on the server" and that's not what you really want, then change it.

In deciding whether to change the setting in Windows Mail from "Leave a copy on the server" to not "Leave a copy on the server", consider whether you use only one computer to access your email. If you have it set to not "Leave a copy on the server", then downloading to Windows Mail deletes the messages from Google's mail server.

My computer is running Windows Vista Home Premium which includes Windows Mail. Since the program is already on the computer and listed on the compatible client list with setup instructions on the Gmail website, I followed the instructions for setup with one minor problem.

Is there a way to keep the program from downloading whole messages instead of just the headers? I've let it download several of the imap folders from the account over the last couple of days, off and on, and it's still not finished. I suppose downloading all the messages enables you to sort, view, and edit your e-mails even when your offline. I don't have that problem since I'm permanently connected to the internet so I don't need to download whole messages. All I have to do is click on a message and it loads in a minute at the most depending on message size etc. I don't need to have a fairly small hard drive loaded down with unneeded data.

If there's no way to stop the program from downloading whole messages, any recommendations for an alternate third party client that can be set to download only message headers?

I already have Thunderbird on another computer and was looking to try something different.

Thanks for your help!

Hi everyone. I have a desktop at home with Windows 8.1 that I share with my wife. Recently I finally set up a Windows ID for her, using her gmail address, so she could have her own user account. That went smoothly and she can log in but I can not set up gmail in Windows mail on this computer. It keeps giving me an error which I don't remember specifically right now since I'm not at home. I also have a gmail account leftover from when I had a droid so I tried setting that up on my W8.1 laptop, just to see if I got the same error, and it added it fine, no problems! So I went back to the desktop and tried to add my gmail account under her user account and it didn't work, gave me the same error her email address was getting. Any idea why this might be? I checked my gmail account and surprisingly IMAP was disabled, but it added it on my laptop anyway. I know I won't be able to convince her to switch to Outlook.com, and that's not my intent, I just want her to be able to use and personalize the computer. Thanks in advance!

Hey Suriya,

You are on the right track here, except one thing. POP will only work for gmail when you are logged on to gmail (or any other google service with the same account) in your browser. In other words, even if you have it configured correctly, Windows Mail cannot connect with gmail without explorer (or firefox, or chrome, or whatever) being concurrently connected to google. If you look hard enough, this is in the gmail documentation, but it took me years to find it.

I did a clean re-install of Windows Creator today. With the previous install, Mail worked fine.
I setup 3 gmail accounts and get the same message on all accounts: "Nothing has arrived yet".
Tried all the suggestions I could find and nothing has worked.
All my setting seem (?) correct, but there is no syncing happening.
Any ideas? Thanks.

Hello everyone I am using Windows 8.1 x64. I would like to know how to add a gmail account to my Windows Mail app so that I can view my mail from there. Please note I do not and am using a Microsoft account to log into my pc. I am using a local account and want to keep it that way. Now I have followed the steps given here-:
Set up Mail and add contacts - Microsoft Windows

But I am unable to find Add Account when I click on settings. The Add Account option seems to be located in Settings
-> Change PC Settings -> Add Account. But this creates another user on the system and has nothing to do with the Windows Mail.
Please note my Gmail is protected via 2-step verification. Is it possible to add this type of an account into Windows Mail ? Also how do I add it ? Microsoft seems to force me to use their Microsoft account for email and etc. But I want to use my own gmail account.
Thanks.

I primarily use Windows Mail for my work at home job. I also have a Gmail account so I can check for e-mails on my iphone when I'm out. I want to have it set up so that the emails show up in both places, Windows Mail and Gmail.

Currently if my desktop computer is turned off and my Windows Mail program is not open, the incoming emails only go to Gmail and not Windows mail. OR, if my computer is up and running but the Windows mail doesn't happen to be open, the emails only go to Gmail and not Windows Mail. Seems like if my browser (IE8) is open but windows mail is not open, emails will only go to Gmail.

Do I have some settings wrong which would make the emails not show up in Windows Mail?

I am running Windows Vista, 64 bit.

Thank you for any suggestions.

Hi lindalo5032,

While researching for this issue, found a link which might help in fixing the issue: Leaving Mail on the Server with Windows Mail | Tiger Technologies Support

Ensure to check the box ?Leave a copy of messages on the server? and uncheck ?Remove from server after? and ?Remove from server when deleted from deleted items?. Click Apply and then OK.

Check if the new messages appear in Windows Mails and Gmail.

Please post the results.

Answer:Windows 10 mail app not working with gmail?

Join the club. All of a sudden I can't get any of my accounts (hotmail, gmail, yahoo) to sync using the mail app. I have no third-party firewall or antivirus; I tried re-registering the apps, deleting and re-adding accounts, adding an exception to the Windows firewall for svchost, you name it. Nothing works, and we're not alone.

I have a microsoft account, that is registered to my gmail; That is the username is [email protected] When attempting to use the mail service in windows 10, that mail is already registered as an account. It reads " System error, can't get mail ", and that isn't very surprising because it seems to be registered as a hotmail account. If I go into its settings it is named "outlook mail" and has server "dub407-m.hotmail.com". It's quite easy to create a gmail account, but nothing shows still, and I suspect it's due to this account still being stuck with an error. It can't be deleted and don't seem to have the necessary pop3 and smtp settings for me to change and get it working. Anyone know how to sort this ?

on a new gmail account, unlike outlook account, you're allowed to go into advanced settings where you can set all these. But the primary account don't seem to be possible to change or delete :s

Answer:How do I get gmail to work on windows mail?

The only problem I had, was that my AVG firewall blocked access to the Gmail server. I had to add some rules to it and then Mail could get stuff from my Gmail account.

Maybe this is the same problem, although, I can't remember anything about Hotmail.com.

With my Gmail accounts, I have the following servers:


Code:
imap.gmail.com:993:1
smtp.gmail.com:465:1
www.google.com
apidata.googleusercontent.com

I hope this can help you!

I'm trying to archive my emails through the Win10 built-in mail app, but it doesn't archive, although it says "Archived".
It doesn't archive on the app, nor on the gmail. If I archive the email manually through the website or mobile app, the W10 Mail app shows accordingly.
I've tried reinstalling Windows, but this didn't help. Any clues?

Answer:Why isn't my Windows 10 Mail app archiving GMail mails?

I have the same problem in all my W10 PCs and the mobile insider. Mail app's Archive has never done anything, but it always shows the "Archived" at the bottom. The reason I use Metromail is because I NEED the archiving function, without it the mail app is mostly useless to me, even though it has nice new features.
Has anyone figured out what is going on?
