    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    Hello Bridgehead. I'm sorry it crashed and got corrupted, and it does happen occasionally like that, gets corrupted on normal use - but not too often.

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    Good Morning Ripperoo, Great, so a System Restore to a previous date got you back working to start over. That's normal that any Win10 Update or Upgrade will mess it up, but it's not to even pay attention or worry about that, because if you have an already made Backup, then on a Restore you do...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    @ stiffler, No not to the tee, because if you did, it Would Work! ..I possibly (unlikely) may have thought it was a stuck 0 byte file in there, but when you confirmed when you checkmarked that option to delete items out of the Deleted Items box, and click Apply, but then when you open it again...

    Reading some of your previous posts with your questions back in September when you had some message store corruption during upgrade - I remember you. My answer is everything should be backed up and Nothing should ever be skipped - they all go in tandem one way or the other really. The...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    Okay, that's a tough break, very sorry. Ever since the Windows Mail code was depreciated out of Windows 10, you cannot depend on Windows 10 in any of its updates or restore processes, to keep it together for you as the Win10 OS may (usually) will depreciate it again. For WinMail, always...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8 or Windows 10

    Go back two or three restore points if you can? I don't recommend using a System Restore Point as a backup of the message store folder. Restore Points can be limited, but as a last resort they can be helpful and will restore most things to the last date of that backup, and you will have to...

    I want to keep the tutorial as short as I can, while being as accurate as I can. It's complex yes; yet simple.
