Windows 10: Windows Live Mail in Windows 10 RTM?

    Here's some info from someone who provides WLM support on news.annexcafe.com that may be helpful:

    "When DeltaSync support ends (Outlook.com type accounts moved to the Office 365 backend server...only IMAP, POP3, and EAS will be supported)

    - if using WLM the options will be IMAP and POP3
    - If using Outlook 2010 and 2013 the options will be EAS, IMAP, POP3
    - if using Outlook 2007 or earlier (same as WLM)
    - if using a 3rd party email client the options remain the same IMAP and POP3

    For a current problem with that error...you might try the following in IE
    Tools, Internet Options, Connections, LAN Settings, uncheck the Automatically Detect Settings,OK.
    and
    Advanced, Restore Advanced Settings, OK."

    Note that outlook.com accounts currently using DeltaSync can be switched to IMAP now.
    IMAP settings:

    imap-mail.outlook.com SSL 993
    smtp-mail.outlook.com TLS/SSL 587
    Check "authentication required"
    user name = full email address
    password = password

    Hi,
    I've just installed W10 and WLM 2012 DOESN'T WORK.
    I've just downloaded the 'Windows Essentials' pack from Microsofts site and installed just 'Windows Live Mail 2012'. Seems to be working fine so far with Windows 10 Pro.

    Big relief too. I am heavily reliant on that email client and the new Windows 10 mail app is a toy by comparison.

    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 recently did a clean install of 10 and exported my WLM account info and all e-mails first. After installing WLM I imported the account info and e-mails. All worked fine.

    WLM 2011 and 2012


    I recently downloaded WLM 2012 and had problems with my group addresses. After looking at various forums, it was apparent that I was not alone! The advice was to revert to WLM 2011 which I did and all was well.

    I now read above that WLM will not work in W10 but WLM 2012 will be OK. Given my earlier problems with 2012, I am now unsure what to do. I am also holding off installing W10 for a while until it settles down - as advised by several pundits!

    Any comments/suggestions?

    Server Error: 0x800488A6
    Windows Live Mail has no problem with email addresses containing an underscore character. Outlook.com does have a problem, though, with passwords more than 16 characters long submitted by Windows Live Mail, and I think that this error code is one of those returned in such a situation. To test, visit the Change password page and change your password to one of 15 characters. If two-step verification is enabled for the account, disable it while we're testing the new password.

    Back in Windows Live Mail, right-click on the account name in the folder pane and select Properties. Change the password on the Server tab, then try synchronizing the account.

    Look for this on the File menu:

    "File/Export Email/Email Messages"

    Where did you get the information that Windows Live Mail will no longer work after the preview period? I can confirm that WLM works fine in the Win 10 Preview and have not heard that it will not work after Win 10 is released.
    I upgraded to Win 10 Home within days of its release & it has rendered WLM 2012 unusable!

    I CANNOT attach anything to an email;
    I CANNOT insert anything into an email - both of these actions immediately cause WLM to freeze & show as 'Not responding' in the new (inferior - IMHO!) Windows 10 version of Task Manager! My only option is to use the webmail version (outlook.com) which is seriously limited by comparison to WLM.

    I would uninstall and reinstall it; just make a note of all of the account settings so you can re-enter them afterward if a manual setup is required.
