    Winmail will no longer work with 1709 version

    The previous work around with windows did work however I'm seeing this error with 1709 version. Any ideas?

    Windows Mail could not be started because one of its libraries could not be found.

    Hi Bill818.

    One opinion. Fall back to 1703, get Winmail running again and then make your way to supported mail product.

    There may be other articles accessed through your favorite search engine to get to other platforms. The key is supported mail product.

    Reading between the lines in Ken's response, 1709 DID remove several libraries that WLM needs to run, and they aren't coming back. "Say 'Goodnight, Gracie'....'Goodnight, Gracie!'"

    If your message store is "trapped" within W10 1709, you can take Ken's suggestion to revert to 1703 temporarily while you migrate your message store, then reinstall 1709 and use any of the new "suitable mail programs".

    Perhaps its time to move on from this client. After all you are leaving yourself vulnerable by using software that is no longer in active development.
