    I uninstall WLM and reinstall it without the patch.

    I'll wait a time until Microsoft review that problem.
    Agreed this is what I had to do after the patched caused it to crash.

    If you click on "file" then "about" it will tell you what version of WLM you have. If it says 16.4.3528.0331 then it is not the patched version. If it says 16.4.3563..0918 that is the patched version.

    I was able to apply the patch to my Windows 8.1 machine without any problem but it crashes WLM on my 3 Windows 10 machines. I've tried everything- backwards forwards and sideways- but WLM still crashes. I've used WLM for many years but unless Microsoft does something to fix this I may have to just keep using Windows 8.1. I HATE Windows Mail as well as Outlook and have 5 email accounts I have to keep up with. I agree. This is a bunch of crap from MS considering they have millions of hotmail/outlook users as well as millions of Windows 10 users. Do the rest of you read the email that MS sent-that anyone using WLM 2009 in Windows 7 are going to be out of luck altogether unless they upgrade their operating systems? I have several people running Windows 7 whose computers will not upgrade due to lack of drivers.

    This works, but only because you have downgraded to the version that was there prior to applying the patch (Build 16.4.3528.0331). Unfortunately, this is a short term solution. Microsoft is making changes to Hotmail and Outlook.com soon that will break Live Mail unless you have the patch installed. The patched version is build 16.4.3563.0918. (You can see the build you are running by going to File | About). The patch seems to introduce the problem and it is definitely related to calendar syncing. To test my theory, I created a new outlook.com account. I created a single test e-mail and a single calendar entry. I had no issues with the pre-patch version and this account. But when I applied the patch, Live Mail would crash when it was synchronizing the calendar. If I removed my single calendar entry (on outlook.com), then I could use the patched version of Live Mail without problems. Adding it back in again causes it to crash again. The weird thing for me is that I have three Dell laptops running Windows 10 with nearly identical configurations. This only happens on one of the three. But it happens consistently. No amount of uninstalling and reinstalling and applying and reapplying the patch makes any difference. It crashes on calendar update at the startup of Live Mail every time. Extremely annoying. I agree that the new Microsoft Mail app stinks.

    I had the same problems, program crashed while updating calendar. So I simply signed out from my hotmail account (the right most button in top toolbar). Now WLM is not updating calendar anymore, just checks for e-mails. It seems ok.

    Are you sure this was a genuine email? It has been reported on another forum I read.

    it's weird, everything hangs on send and receive for me after installing the new patch-
    if i go to options>email account>remove account
    then restart WLM and add the account back in again, everything downloads properly and updates but from then on if i click send/receive it just all hangs again

    For new installations the version downloaded is 16.4.3528.0331, Microsoft has not updated the patch into it.

    Also had the same problem: wlm2012 on Windows 10 32 bit. I did not try the suggestion of disabling the calender but uninstalling and reinstalling and then doing the update did not work (calender update fails without crashing and then it hangs on mail send and receive). Eventually needed a system restore.

    Same problem here. I can't send or receive emails from my hotmail in WLM after updage. My gmails work just fine after the update, so maybe it's a servername? or a portnumber that has changed?
