Hi all,

Live mail freezes when receiving e-mail if I re-open live mail a second time during the same cession , I have to reboot

to make it work , I used the repair program 3 times but no luck, I could be related to a message I keep getting that I

have over 400 (and going up ) in my live messenger mail but if I go in messenger and click on the words that says I have 400 unread e-mail, it takes me to live mail with no unread mail,

I removed all of the live essentials and re-install but I get the same messages and the same problems.

Hi all,

"Live mail freezes when receiving e-mail if I re-open live mail a second time during the same cession , I have to reboot."

Similar here. I have about 9,000 archived emails going back some 8 years. Nearly lost them the other day when they were corrupted. Luckily I had a backup or three. Blast W8 :cry:

Wouldn't say it is solved as yet though.

Try changing compatibility to windows 7 - mine works fine. If it still causes problems, run the compatibility troubleshooter to find the correct settings.

Thanks ukbadge. I didn't realise there was a compatibility mode & troubleshooter. Will give them a try. :D

Well, WLM runs better about 80% of the time, albeit, much slower starting up. Rest of the time it freezes at the logo :(

I actually ran it twice. Re-run the compatibility troubleshooter, when it finishes say it didn't work and it will re-run. Then it should be ok.

ukbadge, TY for the tip - I think (with fingers crossed) the compatibility trick worked for me too.

I think I solved LIVE MAIL Freezes and Stalling!

My Live Mail was constantly stalling. To Receive or Send, I needed to Restart my computer every time, several times a day, which was troublesome!
By long research and reading massive posts/solutions,
I gathered all the knowledge together and:

1. Pressed WINDOWS & R buttons together (on Keybord)
2. Typed or Copy/Paste: %appdata%
3. Top: App Data / Local
4. Found Windows Live (yellow folder)
5. Found and DELETED RSS Feeds!
I was also contemplating to Delete Calendar, but I was affraid that maybe Dates won't show on my emails?

By all means, I am not computer expert. Just so happy that my email works perfectly now and wanted to share it with you.
I don't know for how long will continue to work flawlesly. I hope this is it!
