    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    The backup reg entries got me back up and rolling on the menu issue. Finally suffered through the 22H2 update and after carefully following the tutorial, winmail is back up and rolling. However, I regularly have issues when replying to or forwarding certain emails where the cursor starts...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    My winmail has recently started acting strange. The main issue is that the views bar seems to have disappeared. I can get all the functionality from the menu, but miss having the icons to click on to do things quicker. Here is what the bar looks like when shown: There is no Send Receive...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    Like some others here, I had gmail issues due to 2FA that were solved using an App Password. But I now have two accounts that are Microsoft 365 accounts that stopped working. It seems Microsoft is turning off Basic Authentication account by account. I am able to generate an App Password but it...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    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 8/10/11

    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 8/10/11

    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 8/10/11

    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 8/10/11

    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 8/10/11

    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 8/10/11

    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 8/10/11

    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 8/10/11

    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 8/10/11

    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 8/10/11

    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 8/10/11

    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 8/10/11

    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...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    How can Winmail disappear Hi, What is it that Microsoft developers have done to make it so that the winmail program doesn't work. Certainly all the needed files are still available. Is there a part of the Windows code that WinMail taps into that is no longer there? Has anyone tried to...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    Winmail Slow after 1607 update After installing the anniversary update and copying over the Winmail folder, winmail fired right up, but seems to be slow in creating, replying or forwarding messages. I have tried to open up Calendar as I remember that working before but it has been little or no...
