    Windows Live Mail Folder Name Change Problem


    Whenever I try to change the name of the storage folder "Open dns" to "Open DNS" I am told there is a problem and to try again. If anyone can tell me how to resolve this problem I would be grateful.


    Thanks and regards, Roy

    I solved the folder problem by moving the messages in it to my Inbox, then deleting the folder, then replacing it by creating a new folder with the correct name, and then moving the messages back from my Inbox to the new folder.
