    OK, I've tried repairing and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Live Mail to no avail. Any ideas anyone?

    Sledge to crack nut but this might be fixed. Done as follows:

    1. With WLM closed, rename the store folder so that it can't find it; start up the program and it will create a new folder of the old name with basic files in it. I guess one of these is the problem but without knowing which one, I instead went to...

    2. Import e-mails across from the renamed folder. This took time but it gathered up all accounts and message rules (which needed redoing, however). All the folders needed moving by hand as they sit in an "imported folder" and many of the details just needed deleting (doubling up of all the separate inboxes for each account, for instance).

    That's it. Seems to be working, though I'll be nervous for a while...

    One thing: if you try this, after step one, add one of your non-working accounts and check it works before doing any importing to save you time.
