    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    Today my Win 10 forced me to update to 22H2, but strangely my existing WinMail survived. No restoring / reinstalling was necessary.

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    I clearly remember that updating to 21H2 DID NOT break my working Winmail. I will however wait with 22H2.

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    No, that's not what I meant. Sorry I must have expressed myself wrongly. I mean opening files attached to the email messages. All open fine except for the .doc - WinMail cannot find associated program to open these, although I have made appropriate association in Windows settings. What could...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    Hi Endeavor, had to freshly install Win10 on main PC due to 12 years old SSD died. Installing WinMail went all ok thanks to the tutorial. However one problem still exists. WinMail refuses to open .doc files, claiming there is no App for this - although I have MS Word installed and it is also...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    May I ask your professional advise (we have communicated on the issue before), what exactly to backup, if one does not want / does not find necessary to backup all emails? All my emails are stored elsewhere, what can be backed up excluding all emails? Perhaps you could specify. 1. Windows Mail...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    Thanks, I don't mind restoring, I personally don't like backups (as mentioned earlier, my messages are stored elsewhere). I am still very happy that my beloved WM works on 1903 (and hopefully will work any younder); I don't mind configuring all settings anew. Thank you Endeavor for all the work...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    And this was the culprit! "Good backup" of 1709 does not like freshly installed WM on 1903! Maybe worth making a note? Maybe I am not alone with this? Now configuring WM interface from scratch; I think I can make it tho :-)

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    Thanks reply - I did registry backup to ensure all settings stay in place, and I skipped messages backup since it is not that important for me, they are additionally stored elsewhere so I can always redownload them. What do I need to do to make sure messages are being opened and can be replied...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    Wonder if anyone can help - recently updated to v. 1903, did all the procedures as usual, WM starts up, all in place, messages are being received but nothing could be done with them - they could not be replied or forwarded, even new messages cannot be created - WM just closes without any error...

    It would still be nice if someone could come with a solution for emptying deleted messages on exit.

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    Hello Endeavor and thanks for your reply. Somehow I managed to set Windows Mail as default in Apps, it is also visible there. But still any email that is stored outside WinMail's default storage folder, cannot be opened. Clicking on it opens Windows Mail, but not email file itself. I even did...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    I have a slight glitch. I am on Win 10 Pro 1703 with deferred upgrades, only cumulative allowed. Somehow yesterday I have noticed that Windows Mail disappeared from default apps, and is nowhere to be found under apps. I have manually associated .eml files to be opened with Windows Mail (can only...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    @ Endeavor, Thanks for reply. Do you, hmm, consider to figure out what code has been removed in order to maybe reinstall it again for any further versions of Win 10? Staying with v1607 seems to be good for intermediate solution...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    What do you suggest, how to turn off automatic updates completely? For this I upgraded to Win 10 Pro to be able to defer further upgrades, but is this enough? Please kindly describe exactly what has to be done. Thank you.

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    Thanks for your so kind reply. As I understand it will take enormous efforts to put back all the code MS removed, so in the end it may not be worth it, could you recommend any good replacement to Windows Mail? The one which ideally keeps all emails stored separately as .eml and using Windows...

    How to reinstate WinMail onto Windows 8/10/11

    Dear Endeavor, please keep up the good work, I cannot do without Windows Mail as it is my main mail program for work. I have Win 7 on main PC and Win 10 on laptop, I was lucky I realized I'm not on last build, so I decided to turn off all Win 10 updates, until maybe you find a chance to...
