    Server Execution failure in Windows Live Mail


    When i try to open a link in an email message, I get the message, "server execution failed"

    I can't open any links in any messages and am considering an uninstall-reinstall

    This happened just after the latest automatic update of win 8.1

    Please assist

    Thanks

    OK. I just uninstalled-reinstalled WLM 2012 and the problem is not fixed. I cannot open any links in any messages.

    OK. I just tried the links in my Thunderbird mail Messages. They work just fine

    I have the same problem. I uninstalled the update, but it did not solve the problem. I don't know what to do! I won't use Thunderbird, and I fear there aren't many of us using WLM under Win 8.1; it is way too buggy.

    How did you uninstall the update? Did you use System Restore?

    I went to Control Panel, Programs and Features, asked to list by Install date, and deleted the most recent install.

    Server execution failed error problem


    I too am having the same error in Windows Live Mail, started occurring mid-November and have not been able to fix. I re-installed WLM. Still no good. I have Windows 8.1 and WLM 2012. Please help, this is a pain!
    Merry Christmas!

    Go download Postbox. It cost $9.95, but you can try it free for 30 days. Not only does it have none of these errors, but it is easily configured to do what you want, allows creating email groups that work and don't disappear.... Postbox . I don't work for them; I just found the program delightfully useful.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I was unable to config Postbox. Plus I got several security warnings that concerned me also.
