Windows 7: email account and inbox in Windows Live Mail disappears

20 Jan 2012   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
email account and inbox in Windows Live Mail disappears

Every so often - not each time I open Windows Live Mail but daily or every other day there is no inbox. Also my (only) email account has disappeared. When I make the account again the inbox reappears (including all the mail that I had already deleted).

I use Windows 7 64 bit.

Why does this happen?

Thanking you in advance,

If you're using IMAP it can happen when there's a communication issue with your eMail provider.

Have you tried manually rebuilding the account with a POP/SMTP configuration and seeing if the problem happens then?
