Windows 7: Can't send e-mail using Windows Live Mail

Can't send e-mail using Windows Live Mail

I can receive e-mails but I cannot send any e-mails. When I press the new e-mail button this message pops up: A problem occured while trying to open this message. A problem has occurred. Please try again.

I have checked all of the server information. It is all correct. I am in an office with 4 other people and we all use the same e-mail provider. Noone else is experiencing this issue.

this might sound weird... Close live mail, then when you open live mail again... give it a minute or 2 to fully initialize before hitting the new mail button.

It takes a while for it to completely load and initialize it's .pst/.ost files. There are rumors that you can run Ccleaner against the apps and registry to help the issue (not proven).

Run the Application and Registry cleaner (while Windows live Mail is closed)
