Update for Windows Live Essentials Mail 2012 (KB3093594) kills WLM

Question: Update for Windows Live Essentials Mail 2012 (KB3093594) kills WLM

Have been using this program for months now on windows 10 32 bit, and I get an email saying that MS are making changes to Outlook servers and to patch WLM 2012 and a download link.

I applied the patch and now after a few seconds of being open WLM 2012 crashes while updating the calendar.

Anyone know a fix for this? I have taken the patch off by repairing Windows essentials 2012 from the Programs and features dialog, but anyone know why this patch causes WLM to crash after a few seconds?

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.)

Does anyone know if this update has been corrected and reissued?

Answer:Windows Live Mail faulty update KB3093594

As I understand it Windows Live Mail 2012 is being changed and updated 'within the next few weeks' so the update, although showing as available will not be installed on your PC until Windows are ready, that's probably why, if you've tried to install the update, it failed.

I had Windows Live Mail 2011 and had no problems. Then I upgraded to Windows live mail 2012 and that is when the problems started.
All email comes in fine
All email sends fine as long as you only send out one contact.
The problem lies in trying to send out a group contact.
It does not go. when trying to send you get this error msg : imgur: the simple image sharer
I did not realize this problem until i tried to send out a group contact
In fact I put the program on 3 different machines that were upgrades- same problem
Worse, I put this on 8 client computers who had windows live mail essentials 2011 prior and same problem.
I went to the Micrososft Forum and told them the problem. They have been working with me to come up with a fix. i sent them logs that they asked for. So far I only see on the forum "they are working on it"
This is the forum that i posted to Windows Live Mail Essentials 2012 will not allow group contacts - Microsoft Community

I suggest prior to putting the new version on you backup Windows live mail first
Also this does NOT happend if you are putting the program on for the first time and not doing an upgrade
It does not matter if you sign into Live Mail with a live account or you use your own isp, I have tried both and I still cannot send a group contact.

Once uninstalling 2012 and going back to 2011 (you can still get 2011) the group contacts went just fine

Hi

Having upgraded to Windows 8 Pro 64 bit, I have discovered that I have limited control of my options, in Windows Live Mail (Essentials 2012 version)!

Prior to the upgrade, and with the 2011 version of WLM, I was able, through the Options facility to select certain actions, such as:

"Send/Receive on Start up!
and
Delete messages from the deleted folder on close down!

The Options Tab, which allowed these choices, was on the tool bar, at the top of the window, just below, and just to the left of the Close Window X!

This facility does not appear on the current 2012 version!

I would appreciate any advice on this matter

At the moment, I have to manually select Send/Receive, and manually delete old messages

Hi Theo, When first installing W8 I noticed the 'Tile' for Windows Live Mail in 'all apps'. Didn't take much notice as don't use Live Mail which in W7 & W8 was an integral part of Messenger. However to use Messenger you had to create a Live Mail/Hotmail a/c.
Well having become more settled with what I need in W8 I thought I'd have a look at the 'Windows Live Mail' and so pinned the tile to Start & Desktop. I just opened it today and found it has the new UI of the Ribbon Type which makes it very flexible and perhaps more attractive to future use by me. I also noticed it had the 'Options' you require, which you will find on the Toolbar when you create a new message. Hope this helps.

If you have Office 365 you can use the Outlook program. If you don't have that you need to use the Windows 10 Outlook app.
Your 'Live' email exists in the 'cloud' and is downloaded to your computer. You haven't indicated if you have a MS account or not but it's all cloud based regardless.

Is anyone else experiencing a problem with their Windows Live Mail after today's Microsoft Update?
 
I'm running Windows 7, x64-Edition on an Acer Aspire 5750. This morning all was well, I was able to use my Windows Live Mail successfully without any problems.
 
After the Microsoft Update (KB2670838) and restart this afternoon, the program appears to be very much messed up! The E-Mail Account "tree" down the left hand side of the program - when new mail is received no is no longer ledgeable - i.e. the number count updates but appears as though multiple numbers are printed on the same spot. Scrolling up and down the Account "tree" only makes the jumble appear like a mash of scribbles as the program fails to scroll but instead smears the characters as it scrolls.
 
Also the background colour is now black!!?? What's going on?!?! How can I undo this change. I've just tried to reinstall WLM but that has not fixed or solved the problem.
 
See attached screen shot from the program... It's now virtually unusable.

Each account has its own set of folders and each account can be given a color, the ribbon menus on top are great and offer multiple options for your emails.

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?

Answer:Export mail and contacts from Outlook 2007 to Windows live mail 2012?

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.

Every time it is tried get a Logon (server needs this info) window that asks for username (which is, it seems, only partially filled in. Ends at where the @ would appear ) Put down the password but the same logon window keeps reappearing. Don't know if any explanations will help.

16 June was the date MS started migrating Outlook.com accounts to the sync protocol supported by all MS messaging products.

POP3 and IMAP are still supported.

Two of my three Outlook.com accounts have been migrated. The symptom on my machine was that I could not connect to the server - sometimes, this just requires trying to connect again or entering your password in the dialog.

Expecting some transition issues, I tried the above and then visited Outlook.com.
POP was disabled

If you use POP3 in WLM, you'll need to configure POP3 support again in Outlook.com after your account has been updated.

I don't have any WLM acounts that use IMAP. The only thing I see that has changed is the server address, but I don't think that is a required change right now though it might be in the future if MS consolidates all servers to one server.

Answer:New Outlook.com and Windows Essentials Live Mail (WLM)

I Use WLM12 and I switched my 2 Hotmail Accounts to IMAP earlier this week and it seems to be working fine, AFAIK the advantage is that IMAP lets you see as many folders as you have , not just the Standard POP Folders, and will sync them all. You have to setup a new Account in WLM for each one , so you can set it up to use IMAP , you can't switch the existing account , though they seemed happy to co-exist I then deletd the old account once the new one was fully synced .

Only downside .....I don't believe IMAP or POP will sync the WLM Calendar though...if you use it. Use Win10 Calendar instead.

I used these Settings found online.......
If your email app doesn’t support Exchange ActiveSync, it might use IMAP. Unlike POP, which only syncs your inbox, IMAP syncs all your email folders.
Use the following settings in your email app.

Incoming (IMAP) Server

Server address: imap-mail.outlook.comPort: 993Encrypted Connection: SSLOutgoing (SMTP) Server

Is there anyway I can install the windows Live Mail 2011 Essentials and use CUSTOM option to choose what parts of the program I want to install. And if it is possible and it turns out it does not function the way I expected and want to goback to the standard Live Mail 2011, no Essentials.

Or, is there a way to install all of the 2011 Essentials except the OFFICE 2007 MENU BAR, which I do not really like.

Not sure why Microsoft is telling it's users to use it the way we say or go to some other operating system.

Answer:Windows Live Mail 2011 essentials

Welcome
Each component of WLE, can be installed separately. If you want to test a piece of software, make a system restore point, first. You can go back to the way everything was before the install.
You can uninstall the software, too. In my opinion System Restore is a better way to go, you remove everything; even registry pieces usually left behind.

Good news-
A short time ago, I got a beta version of WLM which had the ribbon like Office.

Bad news -
A short time after installing it, I fried C: drive, and somehow managed to erase everything on my data drive too - not a good day at all.

Current news -
I cannot remember where I got/find the software. I don't recall if it was a Windows Live Essentials, or just Windows Live Mail. I think I was invited to get it because of past beta experience, but not sure.

Good Morning seven Forums,

I tried to find a forum dedicated to just Windows Live Mail Essentials win 7 Pro, did not find one if it does exist.

My Question: Where in Options for Windows Live Mail Essentials 2011 can I remove the requirement that large emails messages will be divided into 256KB sizes. I checked each option tab and contents in options, Mail and other sections, could not find that options endabled. I want to disable it if possible. I get many emails with large powerpoints that I would like to share with otheres and family. In the cases where messages have been sent divided up never could be re-assembled at the recipient.

Answer:Windows Live Mail 2011 Essentials, Win 7 Pro

I don't think it's a limit in WLM.
In WLM 2012 I just sent and received an Email with a 2,886 KB .rtf attachment.
No problems and file was received as a single file in Outlook 2010 and WLM 2012.

You may want to check with the ISPs for the sending and receiving.

You can do a Google search for windows live mail file size limit
Here is one thread i found from MS about this.
WINDOWS LIVE MAIL DOESN'T SEND A 8.5 MB ATTACHMENT. - Microsoft Community

Does anyone have a recipe for a 100% removal of the programme?Every single file and folder and maybe everyt registry key too.Or is a format of my C-drive the only way that I am going to be able to recover my emails that have disappeared with the malfunctioning of this program?I need to eradicate all traces of this program but it is hard to find a way to do it .

Answer:uninstalling windows live mail and essentials

You can't recover emails by removing the program you used with them. You can remove it by using Control Pane l/ Add Remove Programs. If your email was with your local ISP, you could call them and have them resend them. They usually keep them on the server for 30 days.

Hi
I have just installed windows 10 upgrade and everything is fine but my email. I use WLM 2012 for work with my work signature on it and it wont work properly.

It seems to give this error message when i try and send " the message cannot be sent an error has occured". When i look at the inbox messages that were in there from windows 7 its all ok but the messages that tried to come through after i installed 10 show this " Message could not be displayed
Windows Live Mail encountered an unexpected problem while displaying this message. Check your computer for low memory or low disk space and try again."

Clearly im not low on memory or disk space. So i cant send or receive mail, even though the send receive works ok.

I have tried SCANNOW and it found nothing wrong and compatibility in windows 7 and 8 and still it wont work. If i try and open it in windows 10 it wont even open, if i do it compatible in windows 7 it will open but wont send or receive anything.

Have you tried your ISP's Webmail/online E-Mail to verify your account is still good? Could be they have a page with setup instructions which Win10 may have changed.

In windows live mail 2012 as is other mail programs I have a calendar. Whether or not I am logged in or not how do I incorporate a .ics file into this calendar? I read somewhere that wlm2012 will not allow this but I am not sure. What's the definitive answer. Thanks Vince

Answer:windows live mail 2012 issue

Hi vinman,

You may import an 'ICS file' with 'Windows Live Mail' only with 'Windows Live Calendar' on the web. To import it, open Sign In > Sign in with the same 'Live ID' that you use to sign in 'Windows Live Mail' > Import the 'ICS file' on the web (Your online calendars will automatically sync with your Windows Live Mail calendars).

Hope this helps. Do reply if you have any further questions.

Hello!

I noticed a strange issue in my father's new notebook (Windows 10 Home). He had Windows Live Mail in his Windows 7 desktop, so I installed Windows Essentials 2012 in the notebook as well to use a familiar e-mail application. I setup the same account and the first days it worked flawlessly. Yesterday my father told me he could not sent mail. There was a popup to enter the user name and password. I could not make it work. Out of curiosity, I configured the same mail account in Outlook 2010 using exactly the same settings, servers, ports, user name and password. And of course it worked! It also works without any problem in Windows Live Mail in his Windows 7 PC. What's going on here? I thought to backup the account, uninstall Windows Essentials and reinstall it but I'm not sure it will help and it was rather late so I postponed it. Any ideas? I already tried to disable Windows Defender and Windows Firewall and test settings such as port 465, require secure connection etc. Nothing did the job.

Thank you in advance.

I?m using Word 2013 and have just now discovered that a few of my (long) existing Word documents contain various lines which are configured with collapsible Headings (how they got in there, I?ve got no idea) and until a few days ago I had no idea what a collapsible heading even was.

Now, I know how to revert the text back to the way it was and get rid of the arrow, but whenever I disable the ?collapsation? the whole title loses its bold formatting and changes the font size. I can only perform the ?de-collapsation? process wherever it appears in the document, does anybody know whether it?s possible (and how to) remove all instances of collapsation throughout the entire document simultaneously and without changing any existing formatting?

I do not know if I am on the right forum or not but I thought I'd start here.  I am having trouble with Windows Live Mail 2012 trying to send an email.  I was on the phone for an hour with Comcast trying to get this straightened out and they made it worse.  When I open Live Mail, all the mail from my Xifinity goes right into it.  It will not do that now.  If I try to send an email, I get a message that says:  An unknown error has occurred.  Server smtp.comcast.net, Windows Live Error ID:  0x8007007A, Protocol SMTP, Port 587.  So I call Comcast and the girl had me change my port numbers, and we would try some things...long story short, I now have about five email accounts with the same email address.  How do I get rid of them?  When trying to execute getting mail, a box pops up to tell me what the email is doing, and it goes down the line of emails and tells me it is trying one, then says that failed, then tries the next which also fails, etc., for 5 times.  I know that is not right but it comes from her trying to get my email working again and repeating the same steps over and over, hence all the email accounts even though they are all the same email address.  I can use Comcast's mail, but there are times when I want to send pictures to someone and for some reason, I cannot do that with Comcast mail, which is why I use my Windows Live.Now, before this all started, I would be on Windows Live Mail, finis...

Answer:Windows Live Mail 2012 not working

Quotethere are times when I want to send pictures to someoneThe Error code indicates that you tried to send an E-mail that included a photo album. Check your outbox and delete any messages that include pictures or photos. The Error is because of changes that were made to OneDrive. What probably happened is you used the "Photo Email" or "send photos by Email" feature, so now every time you try to send Email, that item attempts to send and it fails.The two features no longer work due to changes in OneDrive. You'll want to send any photos specifically as attachments.You can find additional information here.The error message and ID have nothing to do with any account settings, so the tech really just wasted your time by following a script. I found this for deleting accounts:1. Open the Tools > Accounts menu.2. From the Mail tab, click the email account that should be deleted.3. Choose RemoveQuoteNow, before this all started, I would be on Windows Live Mail, finish what I'm doing and X out of it.  After I X'd out, a box would come up saying Windows Live Mail is restarting, and then it restarts.  I do not know why it is doing that when it never did before.  I have changed no settings on my Live Mail.I would surmise that when you close it it tries to send the messages in the outbox.

So I noticed today that WLE 2011 was released and decided to give it a shot.

http://explore.live.com/windows-live-essentials?os=other

Anyone here a mail essentials user? I updated from the older version and noticed it has that Outlook 2010 look and feel, which is nice but the junk mail filter is annoying me. In the old version all mail that was not in my safe list went to junk mail now it seems like 2011 is ignoring my lists and just sending all mail into my inbox with the exception of my hotmail account. For example I do get mail that I want to view but still prefer it to go in my junk mail. For example job search engine results and random news letters from ebay or amazon. I had this same issue with the beta and didn't care to fix it but now that WLE 2011 is out of beta I figure it was time to find a solution if one exists.

Is there a link that provides a fix that actually works?

Windows 7 Home Preimum 64 bit
WLM 2012 (Recently updated to 2012 from 2011 - issues started in 2011 version.)

My issues with WLM started when I rolled back to Windows 7 after trying out Windows 10. I noticed that I couldn't delete certain email messages. I found a work-around, but can only delete one message at a time - I have no patience for that. Anyway, I uninstalled WLM 2011 and installed WLM 2012 hoping I'd be able to recreate CLEAN email accounts. No luck - all OLD emails were moved over from 2011 to the 2012 version. This put me back to the same issue - having to delete one email at a time.

I tried the recommended fix: To repair Windows Live Essentials - That did not work.

I have disabled any anti virus email/scans that might be causing problems -That did not work.

I started to receive a pop-up "Recovering Windows Live database" - This is a recent thing and I'm not sure why.

Anyway, I'm at a loss and pretty much have given-up trying to fix this. Again, is there a fix for this? If so, please provide a link even if it's instructions for doing an uninstall/reinstall without adding old emails from the prior version.

Will Windows Live Mail 2012 still work with Hotmail.ca accounts after June 30, 2016? I received a warning e-mail about this from Microsoft, but it didn't mention Hotmail.CA accounts specifically - only Hotmail.COM.  Thanks.

Answer:Windows Live Mail 2012 has the sender as the TO in the Sent Folder - that is, me.

I am on Windows 7. Huh, my folks were complaining about the same thing. And here I was thinking that they messed up somehow. :) I hope someone has a fix.

Microsoft has announced that the ability to receive messages in this app will be lost soon, unless you apply an update to it.

You can read about it here.

You can obtain the update(KB3093594) from here.

Recently "upgraded" to W10 from W7 (like so many apparently ) Most of 10 works OK and my old installed programs are fine but the big problem I'm having is with Live Mail 2012 Program (is it now an app?)
The program sometimes starts, sometimes not. When it starts it's seems to be in a un-started state or partially started, nothing is accessible and the windows busy mouse icon just goes round and round. Only task manager will close it then, even 'Close Window' on the taskbar does nothing.
I have tried a repair of Live Essentials > Live Mail as well as uninstalling it and reinstalling but no luck.
Is there any way to get this email program working again, as the Win 10 email app is just appalling?

Even after replacing Live Mail 2011 with 2012, I find that it still crashes on and off with the message "something unexpected has happened and Windows Live Mail must close".
If I reboot, it works fine, but I don't want to have to reboot every time this happens.

Answer:Live Mail 2012 crashes regularly in Windows 10

I can't offer much advice, WLM 2012 works fine for me in Win 10.

Does it fail the same way with WLM 2011 as with WLM 2012?

Suddenly no links in emails will work in emails in WLM 2012.
Firefox is set as default but nothing opens.

I am working round it by copying and pasting the link into FF address bar.

I think I've done everything suggested in earlier posts about this.

Microsoft help instructs making IE default !!!! No thanks.

Answer:Links not working in Windows Live Mail 2012

Hi rufford155, sometimes I get the same if FF is open on certain unknown websites. Try the links with FF closed.
Is FF set as default browser. Is WLM 2012 default mail in FF.

About to do a complete wipe of my hard drive and reinstall Windows 7. My concern is being certain that I have Windows Live Mail 2012 backed up. I have five different accounts running through WLM and it is critical I don't lose any emails sent or received.
I took a look at the tutorials and played around but I must be doing something wrong. For example, when I trying exporting and then importing some test messages I wasn't able to find them. The storage folders, where I think the test emails should have been imported, were empty. Tried a few times and always the same result.
Now I'm thinking it might be easier if I just back up all the folders in the Windows Live Mail folder on the C drive. Is this a viable and fool proof way of saving all emails and then being able to restore them?

Answer:Windows Live Mail 2012 Backup Questions

If the accounts are IMAP, the mail will be retained on the remote server no matter what you do with your local client (except for deleting mail from within the client, which will delete it remotely as well). POP is another story, because once downloaded it usually, though not always, is gone from the remote.

I don't see why you couldn't back up the entire WLM folder, which is probably in c:\users\<user name>\appdata\local....

In fact, when I do a reinstall, I always do a file back up of most of the appdata folder. It invariably comes in very handy.

Another way for an independent mail backup, POP or IMAP, is to use MailStore, which is free for private use.

Im a disabled vet (thats pretty far down on the tech. scale) who needs some help. My old computer died and was replaced with a new Lenovo with Windows 10. When my Windows 2012 Live Mail was transferred, all looked great and seemed to be working fine. However, after about a week all of my email folders with years of emails disappeared. Ive tried using the suggestions found on the web, with no success. My browser is Internet Explorer. Can someone simplify the steps to follow for me ?

I'm working on a laptop with Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail 2012 is not exporting email properly.

There are 4,008 messages in the Inbox folder but the export function will only copy out ONE message. A web search finds that this function of WLM 2012 is very badly broken and apparently Microsoft is not going to fix it. No difference in its dysfunction if it's set to work offline.

Exporting from Outlook then into WLM worked fine, but WLM can only (not) export to WLM and Exchange, which requires being on a network with an Exchange server.

Answer:How do I get Windows Live Mail 2012 export to work?

Open the blue File menu
Select Export email > Email messagesSelect Microsoft Windows Live MailChose the export destination folder, [Make New Folder] is a bit tricky, the Folder: field doesn't always automatically get updated, I just click on the folder above it, then click on the folder I created. As long as both the highlighted folder and the name of the folder in the Folder: filed match, you're good to go.
Press [OK]Make sure the radio button All folders is the active selection.
Press [Next]The export should begin and every eMail message should be in the destination folder you chose.

Now that Windows Live Mail 2012 is now on death row, I've successfully added my three Hotmail accounts to my Outlook 2013 client.
When one opens WLM, an indicator appears beside each account to show the number of new emails for the particular account.
This doesn't appear to happen in Outlook 2013 - anyone know how this can be done - it would save having to open each account in turn to see if emails are present.

When I used Outlook Express and Windows XP I was able to delete E-Mail messages from Folders in bulk but not necessarily deleting the whole Folder. I like to clear out older messages from some, but not all, Folders - say annually whilst retaining the last few months incase needed. I can't find a way to do this in Windows Live Mail 2012 using Windows 7. Deleting them one by one would be a nightmare. Can it be done ?

Answer:Bulk deletions from Windows Live Mail 2012

The usual way to bulk select a continuous block of any files, email included, is to click on the first one you want to delete then hold down the Shift key and then click on the last one in the block and then press Delete on keyboard (or with mouse rightclick on the selected files and choose Delete)
Does that not work for you in Windows Live Mail 2012?

I tried setting my mates AOL email account (imap) tonight in Windows Live Mail 2012, everything went fine until it was time to "download" the folders from AOL, we keep on getting a "Server error message" and the folders will not download.
Now I know nothing about AOL as I'm in Aust. and my mate is in Michigan USA

I have Googled for answers left - right and center and the answers I did find re the settings did nothing to help us with the problem.

Could somebody help us out please or point us in the right direction as to how we may solve this issue.

Thanks.

Answer:Problem with AOL Server in Windows Live Mail 2012

What is the exact "Server error message" you get? A screen shot(s) might be easiest and best.
Can you post screen shots of the Email account setup showing servers, ports, security settings, etc?
Just don't post the email address or any other personal data.

I have Windows Live Mail 2012 and I use to receive emails from yahoo. I can go to the internet and retrieve my emails going to Yahoo.com, but I use to get them automatically without having to go through the extra steps of going to the internet.
When ever open up Live Mail and click on Send/Receive or f5 button I get a small window asking to log on - Yahoo, asking for user name and password for the following server.
It is auto filled and when I click okay or cancel, within a second or two the same screen pops up again.
