Well then I'm screwed. I'll have to set up everything from scratch regarding email accounts. I have always backed WM that way. My eyesight is getting so bad that I can't read large buches of text very easily so tend to look for things I'm familiar with.
Thanks and sorry to trouble you.
It's weird, W10 security wants me to enter the account details manually despite importing my backed up .iaf files containing all that information already.
I'm scratching my head at the moment wondering what to do next......not your fault, but I just wondered if anyone had this experience.
I've got it working now, thanks everyone and especially Endeavor for all the hard work.
Is there any way of stopping Windows insisting on verifying user name and password for every account?
I have 8 email accounts and simply imported the .iaf files backed up in my document folders.
Sorry, I thought it only worked for the stated lower version. My bad. I was all tired and confused anyway as the upgrade took me ages to complete..
OK I will do as you instructed and thanks for everything.
Thanks. Wish I could get 1809. It wont install on my machine and it wont even clean install on an empty partition on my Disk 3 nor anywhere else. I think 1809 doesn't like my chipset and/or processor.
Meanwhile I've hidden it for now on my existing 1709, or whatever that number is...
Thanks. Yep, one looks at the contents of the Windows Mail folder in Program Files....totally different.
I'm not sticking with any version because I'm concerned I'd miss out on essential security updates, if I wasn't careful.
It's not that easy to find the info in simple terms rather than a string of numbers but I assume this is what you want?
By the way, apologies to all that we are discussing Win 10 in a Win 8 forum, but this is because this is the authoritative thread on the subject.
