    Okay, all my 3 windows 10 PCs now working well with WLM 0918, syncing emails, contacts and calendar with zero problems.

    Simply apply the provided patch as per MS email. All you need is patience. Depend on how many accounts, folders, emails and sizes you have stored in MS cloud server, which MS cloud server requires time to reconfigure for you. Just close WLM when it crashes, then reopen as many times as it needs. This can take up to 10 times with 20 minutes. Take the advantage doing it on Sunday when MS cloud server is not too busy.

    Good luck! Please let us know if this works for you!



    Edit: At this time, all my 3 windows 10 machines working fine with WLM 0918. So as I see it works too with many others.

    Had the same issue, WLM crashed. I back to build 0331. Tried the mail app for Windows 10, it definitely has a long way to go to be a satisfactory App.

    I read a note some place else and can't find it, but the suggestion was to keep opening Live and it might take 20 minutes and eventually it will stay logged on, the explanation was it takes some time for the server or cloud to recognize the account, then if you get an error message, I followed this suggestion from another place:

    "Click the start button, then click on default programs, click on associate a file type and protocol with a program, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page until you see (mailto) listed click on it and then on change,
    Install recommended programs should load click on windows live mail from the list, and close or save at the bottom of the page."

    Sorry I can't be a little more clear, but this is what I did and the updated copy of Live is working fine.

    My install of WLM on Win 7 doesn't crash but the Safe Senders and Blocked Senders lists are being ignored in a random manner.

    Well I'll be dipped. The suggestion to apply the patch and just wait works. I have 4 email accounts configured in Live Mail, 2 which are Microsoft. I installed the patch and waited about an hour and now it works fine.

    Problem with solution

    Go to Windows Explorer (File Explorer) click on This PC and search for *.eml This will tell you where the file store is for emails.
    Go to WLM, click on File, Options, Mail, Advanced, Maintenance, Store Folder. The path indicated there should point to the location where you found the eml files. If it doesn't (and because you don't have your emails it won't) change the path to where you found the eml files.

    That should restore all your accounts the the emails within them.
    When I followed the instructions and tried to change to the correct sub-folder I got a message saying the folder was not empty and couldn't be used. Something isn't working.

    Select the root WLM folder and not one of its sub folders. If you can't change to the WLM something is, as you say, wrong. I have done this a few times and never got a message like that. Hmmmmm.

    Well the original location was pointing to the WLM folder which is why I tried to save to the sub-folder. I just reapplied the patch. I'll wait until tomorrow restart and see if they appear. Thanks.

    Encouraged by this I decided to give the patch another go and just like you I eventually manged to get it working. But for me it took longer more then an hour and maybe 20 tries. It started just like before upon checking the calendar it immediately crashed on me. Then I launched it again and this time it worked past check the calendar and started checking for mails. But it was just stuck like that with high cpu usage so I force quit it using task manager. Then once again I launched it and this time I also clicked the send receive button, and even tough it was slow to react eventually that little window with the progress bar appeared but nothing would happen so after a few minutes like that I just aborted it and quit WLM but this time normally trough the file menu rather then force quit. After a few rounds of this method I started to notice WML behave differently rather then constant slowness and high CPU usage it would go in and out of its non responsive state so I could see the window flicker a bit between selected and de selected state. AFter a few more rounds and each try lasting a few minutes I eventually managed to get a Swedish error message like this:

    "Det går inte att skicka eller ta emot meddelanden för kontot Hotmail (e-mail removed for privacy).

    Serverfel: 0x80072EF3
    Server: 'https://m.hotmail.com/Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync'
    Windows Live Mail Fel-ID: 0x80072EF3"

    So at least now I was getting somewhere So it seems to be a server error id 0x80072EF3 and unable to connect to the Active sync server whatever that means. And what is that URL doing there? Why a Hotmail URL? Strange...

    Anyway once I had reached this far I continue to try trough several more attempts of this and eventually that green progress bar moved and downloading mails. Finally! It certainly took a lot of patience!

    So currently my WLM 2012 build 0918 is working in my Windows 10 machine. But I do not know if that will be the case the next time I re boot my PC! I hope that it will work normal fingers crossed...
