    Windows Live Mail (WLM) Bizarre Behavior

    I have been using Windows 10 for almost a year with Windows Live Mail as my email client without issue until about 3 weeks ago.

    Now, there is an intermittent problem: I have 3 accounts linked to my WLM and when doing a send/receive randomly the program will do crazy things; some email will be removed from the "inbox" and be sent to the "deleted items" folder in the same account. The change does not happen between accounts, in other words, emails in account "x" will be moved only to a different folder in account "x" and not between accounts. This may not occur for a day or more and then suddenly it just happens.

    I have checked for a virus infection using multiple AV programs and MBAM with no problems detected.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Since you are running them on Imap .. No settings would be lost to Re configure them.
    First try to refresh folder list if No GO .. Just delete accounts and reConfigure them..

    Word of Advice: IMAP is no good for Outlook and Live mail.. Tons of Bugs .. Microsoft is too careless about them.. Instead configure them with POP for better functionality.
