    Has anybody tried exporting the account settings from a working version of Windows live Mail ??

    Would think an upgrade would carry over the settings, but maybe a wrong setting in the account setup

    I exported my account settings and e-mails prior to upgrading to 10 in case I needed to import them. However, I did not need them as Live Mail (2012) was working fine after the upgrade. Haven't experienced any problems using WLM in Win 10.

    I have not had any issues running WLM 2012 on my Win 10 upgraded machine. I suspect the fact that you're putting your messages on the external drive is the difference.

    I'm curious why you keep your messages on an external drive?
    By doing so, I am able to receive my messages when I am not at home. I am using my laptop at work and a SSD disk for my messages. For reading my messages I do not have to go on the internet and use my webmail of my internet provider.

    Issues too

    I've got the same issues with my outlook account. I looked up the properties of that account and get this little screen:

    As you can see there's not a lot I can enter. When I first opened it up, it said a lot of mumbo jumbo in the box of the server url, so I tried changing that but that didn't do anything. I'm at a loss here too, since windows 10 is so new there's nothing I can find about this.

    Nothing changed in those settings. Checked them, they're still correct.

    This is the full notification I am getting:

    "Unable to send or receive messages for the Outlook () account.

    Server Error: 3204
    Server: ''
    Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x8DE20003"

    I looked up the error and they have a fix for windows 7 or 8 but not for windows 10.

    I have been using Windows Live Mail since it came out as a replacement for Outlook Express. Now I'm told, that Windows Live Mail will not work in Windows 10 after the Preview period.
    Can anybody confirm this?

    As I also use emails to/from my job I can't use a cloudbased email-client (company-politic), so if Live Mail is not an option after Windows 10, what choises do I then have?

    Live Mail is working just fine right now in my Windows 10 Preview, so I really don't see the point in shutting it down, unless Microsoft want people to use their socalled "mail-app", and I really don't like that (as it is now)

    I've just installed W10 and WLM 2012 DOESN'T WORK.

    So you download the messages when at home, then take the drive to work and read the messages while offline there? That's the way it was done 20 years ago when it was only possible to get your mail when connected to the company mail server. Now there are so many ways to access mail in real-time it hardly seems worthwhile to download it for offline reading. It's your decision, of course, but I believe that's what's causing you to have issues with WLM.
