    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.
    Can't explain why you are having issues. WLM 2012 has worked flawlessly for me thru every Preview build of Win 10 as well as with the retail version of Win 10 and has continued to work fine in the 2 builds of Win 10 that have been released since the retail version.

    I agree with the suggestion to attempt uninstall and reinstall.

    Just download the latest version of Windows Essentials and save the stump file for future use. Double click the stump.exe file you should be prompted to add/repair your previous version.

    After you have successfully repaired/installed W.E. be sure to export your different email accounts to a new folder in Documents, name is Mail Accounts (or whatever you like). That way you can backup those accounts to your Flash Drive or whatever backup media you use. (hopefully it's an external drive for making system images)

    Received this correspondence from Outlook.com (outlook@communication.microsoft.com)
    Dear user,
    In a few weeks, we will be making some changes to our email services that might impact your @outlook.com, @hotmail, @live, or @msn email account. Those changes will prevent your email from being delivered to the Windows Live Mail 2012 application you use.
    In order to continue using Windows Live Mail 2012 to send and receive email for your account, you need to install the latest update published here.
    If you use Windows Live Mail 2012 on Windows 8, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10, we recommend that you switch to the built in Mail app in Windows to stay connected and get the latest feature updates on Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.
    Windows Live Essentials 2009 and 2011 are not supported anymore, and you will need to update to Windows 8/8.1 or Windows 10 and use the Mail app, or use Sign In. To learn more about the Mail app, please click here.
    We also recommend all Windows Live mail users on Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 to upgrade to Windows 10 and use the built in Mail application to stay connected and get the latest feature updates.
    We suggest saving this email so you can refer to it later.
    Thanks for your understanding and continued use.
    Sincerely,
    The Outlook team


    I'm using Windows Live Essentials 2011 and according to this email I must use Windows 10 built in app. But as one of the members noted 'it a toy' comparted to Windows Live Essentials 2011, I would call it dysfunctional. Any thoughts as to any other email program I can switch too?

    If your email accounts use either POP3 or IMAP then Mozilla Thunderbird is a good choice. I have used it for Gmail (IMAP configuration) with good results. Note that I found IMAP performance was poor with outlook.com accounts which is why I decided to use Outlook 2013 which supports EAS.

    So does this confirm it? What will happen?

    Greetings.
    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)

    Yes, of course it confirms it. Did you read the thread? What will happen is answered in detail.

    I had this problem on Windows 10 Home 64Bit.

    When trying to send and receive emails using Windows live mail 2012 I would get the error 3204, this website has a patch.

    With WLM sort of being in an position of uncertainty at this point I was wondering if anyone is using EM Client and how they like it?
    I need a desktop email client as the web based clients are not suitable for me. Tried Thunderbird and did not really like the set up.

    Tks

    I use EM Client on my laptop because it supports EAS (exchange active sync) which works best for outlook.com/hotmail accounts. I don't like the UI as much as Windows Live Mail, but it gets the job done and it's free for personal use for up to two accounts. Give it a try.
