    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    Hi all, Well, I used my 3 month old backup and of course it came up fine. Messages from all email accounts except Gmail accounts downloaded fine. Gmail only serves up 30 days of Pop messages, so there were a couple months missing. Luckily by using the old Local Folders with the almost good...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    Hi. I've been running winmail successfully on 1903 for a while. Today I changed my spellcheck settings to French, shutdown, came back up and changed back to English to successfully get spellcheck working again. However a minute later, WinMail crashed and when it tried to come back up, it said...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    Endeavor, It might be helpful to modify #11 in the Posting number one which currently reads: 11. For Win10 v1709+ & Sever2019+ users only! - continue to Post #2 to finish before opening WinMail; otherwise go to step 12 (click this spoiler for more info within) to include 1903 in addition to...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    Hi. I apologize in advance, but not sure if there is a better place to ask this question. I have two computers running WinMail on Windows 10 version 1803. They both seem to have regular problems when replying to messages in that they will hang up. At first there will just be a spinning...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    Just upgraded another laptop to Windows 10 version 1803. After carefully completing all the steps, WinMail booted up the first time, albeit without message rules and requiring passwords. So I immediately closed down and ran the .reg file I had recently saved with all the WinMail entries in it...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    Just upgraded one laptop from 1709 to 1803. What a blessing it was to be able to come to this forum and find the instructions so nicely laid out and working perfectly. Many thanks Endeavor for your constant support of WinMail.

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    I think to import/export a single account, you can use the import/export feature in the Accounts Menu.

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    Bill, Having just gone through the upgrade, I can tell you I had the same issue. But if you check the box to save the password, it should only ask you one time for each account (or twice if you have different credentials for sending and receiving email). Don

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    Sorry, by "import", I meant the system recognizing the existing email accounts that were in the previous build. In the past, I believe all the accounts have all come in with passwords set. This is the first time I remember that I've had to resupply passwords, even though in looking at the...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    A change in the wording would help. SInce there is a file "hidden" inside the en-US folder. Instead of '"you'll now need to copy these extra x86 (or) x64 files attached below to the System32 folder", maybe, "you'll now need to copy these extra x86 (or) x64 files attached below to the...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    Solved. Putting the acctres.dll.mui into the System32/en-US folder seems to have done the trick (although I put files in other places so can't be 100% certain). It took more time to troubleshoot than expected because a reboot was required. Newsgroups still not working, but since I don't use...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    Another possibility might be the path taken to 1709 (via win 7, win 8, fresh install etc.). It could be that a file was only available on one of the paths and is missing on others.

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    Possible issue. In the additional step for 1709 users, the zipped file contains a folder and two files. The two files seem like they are supposed to be copied to the system32 folder, but what about the file inside the en-US folder (acctres.dll.mui). I tried copying it to the en-US folder...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    I have the same problem of no Account menu after an upgrade to 1709 last night. The accounts were "imported", without passwords, so I can use it by filling in the password but can't add or change accounts. I am going to go through all the steps again to see if I somehow missed something. Don...
