Windows 7: Can't send XML files in Windows Live Mail

Can't send XML files in Windows Live Mail

When I try to attach an XML file to an email message, WLM freezes. Attachments and mailing work fine with other file types. Anyone know what's going on here? Thanks.

Hi Arthur,

I normally use Outlook 2010 for my emails, however I also have WLM installed so I decided to fire that up and send a test XML file to myself. No problems. It sent and was received without any problems. Could it possibly be a corrupt file? Perhaps your email account profile is corrupt. Try creating a new one to see if that solves the problem.

Should work. You could always zip your file and send it that way.

Thanks for the ideas. I tried creating a new account and resending, but that didn't work. It behaved just like my main account--freezes when I hit the send button. Is there a way to confirm or check my email account profile? Even if the xml file is corrupt, it should still send it as is, right? Sending the file works when I send it from other accounts--just not WLM.

Try a repair installation of WLM.

You could always rename them like blah.xlm.txt.

Renaming the file is an interesting idea. I'll try that.

Concerning a repair installation of WLM, how do I do that? Are you suggesting that I remove WLM and then reinstall it fresh?

Thanks.

Since other file types can be sent ok, it sounds like something is trying to protect you from xml files or their contents. Maybe anti-virus? Or an options setting in WLM? When you say "Sending the file works when I send it from other accounts--just not WLM" do you mean you have another email program installed on Windows 7 and you mean "other programs" or "other accounts within WLM"? If it's an account setup problem then all file types should have the same problem sending mail with or without attachments. To check your account setup, all you can do is go to your emal service providers website for instructions on setting up the server (and maybe the advanced) tab in account properties.

I'll check the options and try a test send with my AVG off (just for a moment). I can attach an xml file and send it successfully from my gmail and yahoo mail accounts.

I checked options settings. They seem OK. AVG settings seem OK, too. I can attach and send xml files OK in Outlook on the same computer. Just not in WLM. Is there a setting I missed? Thanks.
