I am using Windows Live Mail



  • 1. Outlook 2007 won't open when out of office
    My wife has Outlook 2007 on her laptop, and her company recently put an exchange server in place. She cannot access the exchange server from outside her office, and has no problem with that, but she does have her calendar, contacts, and 2 other non-exchange email accounts set up in Outlook that she would like to be able to access when not in her office. When she opens her outlook, she gets an error stating that Outlook cannot connect to the exchange server, followed by an option to work offline. When she clicks OK to work offline, Outlook closes. Is there any way to disable an exchange account that doesn't involve going into the mail control panel and deleting the account? It seems kind of silly that if the program is unable to connect to one of several accounts set up in the program that you are prevented from using the program at all.
  • 2. When I reply to a message in Outlook 2007, I end up getting me
    No it is not Gmail, it is OUTLOOK 2007 at work, we have IMAP not POP3 nor Exchange Server, I simply, when I reply to an e-mail, I also end up getting it to myself in my Inbox. No one else at the office is having this issue!

  • 3. Deleted mail disappears in Outlook 2007
    Everytime one of my users deletes an e-mail from Outlook 2007, the deleted mail is automatically sent to the Deleted Items folder, then a seconds later disappears. The Deleted items folder remains at 0 at all times. User is using .pst file. What can be done to correct this? Thank you All -- Have a Nice Day!
  • 4. Draft mails deleted by accident!
    Hi, some how managed to delete all my drafts from my draft folder. Looked for them in the deleted folder, not there and also tried to recover deleted messages - but they are nowhere to be found. Can I find them and retrieve them somehow? It was a lot of work in those drafts. -- .
  • 5. Outlook 2002 - where can my archive folders be?
    A week ago a power surge blew my motherboard; although able to retrieve data from my 2 hard drives, I am really struggling to locate my Outlook archive folders. I have searched under *archive.pst to no avail. Do you have any suggestions?

Ask in a vista.mail group, WLM has nothing to do with the Outlook group you 
posted to

"keeps not sending"
Oh, it's a secret error message that you cannot divulge here.

"ID check"
We are to guess what that is?  Are we to also guess that you are using the
Outlook Connector add-on which is only needed for Deltasync access to a
Hotmail account?  Did you follow the instructions?  Did you try using the
webmail interface to your account to respond to the intervening security
page that prompts you to enter the characters from the CAPTCHA image?

Windows Live Mail, in your Subject, is an e-mail client.
Windows Live, what you said in your post body, is a suite of *services*.
This newsgroup discusses Outlook, not Windows Live Mail.

So do you have a question regarding Outlook, the topic if this newsgroup?

The Windows Live Mail (e-mail client) newsgroup is at:

--- Posting Hints ---

ALWAYS REVIEW your message before submitting it.  You want someone OTHER
than yourself to understand your post.  Also remember that no one here is
looking over your shoulder to see at what you are pointing.  If you don't
well explain your situation by providing the details that you already know,
don't expect others to know what is your situation.  Explain YOUR computing
environment and just what actions you take to reproduce the problem.

Often you get just one chance per potential respondent to elicit a reply
from them.  If they skip your post because you gave them nothing to go on
(no details, no versions, no OS, no context) then they will usually move on
to the next post and never return to yours.

What is Usenet:

When using a webnews-for-dummies interface (e.g., Microsoft's Communities,
Google Groups, or a leech site using a forum-to-Usenet proxy), those are
gateways to Usenet.  Despite the pretense of a forum, you are participating
in a newsgroup (aka Usenet).

How to post to newsgroups:

Regarding error or status messages:
- Do NOT omit the message.
- Do NOT describe the message.
- Do NOT summarize the message.
- Do NOT paraphrase the message.
- Do NOT truncate the message.
- Do show the ENTIRE message (but munge or star out personal info, 
  like your username in an e-mail address but not the domain).
- DETAIL the steps to reproduce the error or problem.

Still the wrong group. WLM has no more to do with Vista Mail than it has to
do with Outlook.

"Email does not log me after the ID check" ... what does this mean? Does it
have anything to do with the Windows Live signing in screen? That is

"How can I reset the protocol correctly to accept the mail portal?" Is this
a question about configuring the account?

You need to rephrase your questions so they make more sense. You also need
to carry on in the, 'microsoft.public.windows.live.mail.desktop' group. I am
cross posting this over to that group. This group is for MS Outlook, a mail
program which is completely unrelated to Windows Live Mail (other than being
published by the same software maker).

3.Windows Live Mail Is Now Windows Live Hotmail?

Who's on first?

This would make an excellent SNL skit.  <g>

Yes, it's...

Nomenclature Gone Wild.

The word at the time was that Outlook Express was a faster, simpler version 
of Outlook, a personal email client and newsreader that could be brought to 
market much quicker than Outlook.

Not True?

4.How do I retrieve my outlook mail using windows live mail (Vista)

5.Outlook 2007, Office Live Mail and Windows Live Mail


Home computer I use Outlook 2007 for my email.  I have 2 email accounts a 
MSN and an Office Live account, I assume they are essentially both Hotmail 
accounts.  I use the Outlook Connector and everything is great.

I have a laptop that I work from, I took off Outlook 2007 and only use 
Office Live to access email.  Everything is still great.  Changes I make in 
Outlook, deletes, move to folders, etc. are reflected in my Office Live mail. 
 Only real problem is I can't import vcards in to the Office Live contacts.

So I install Windows Live Mail.  Low and behold, it has a ton of emails that 
I've deleted from either Outlook or Office Live and shows emails unread that 
I've viewed in both.

I'm sure I have some POP3, Hotmail, Imap or something set up wrong but I'm 
not sure where to start.  I really only need to use Live Mail to import a 
vcards into contacts and then get them into Office live but if I can get a 
better Outlook type function, I'm game.

Ideas, simplifications?
