Windows 10: Windows Live Mail

    Windows Live Mail

    We just bought another new PC. This is a HP Notebook Core i7. It's a rocket ship!
    We've used Windows Live Mail for years with good success. I've tried to install it from
    2 or 3 different sites. It will download, but the install fails as, "not compatible with this PC."
    Any ideas, or a download site that will work? Right now only thing that sort of works is
    web mail. Thanks!!!

    I suspect any download of Windows Essentials will fail on install, I tried on a clean install of Windows creators update (previous Anniversary update it worked) & it failed with a message about language ux. I've read that the software is no longer compatible but can no longer find the information. Some users have said that although it says it fails it does install the programs & they work fine but not for me.

    Windows Live Mail 2012 is no longer supported, about a week ago I uninstalled it. It's not working properly with some Accounts. In my view there is no point in installing it now, you have to move on.
