Windows 7: Windows Live Mail Won't Move Messages To The Junk Folder

Windows Live Mail Won't Move Messages To The Junk Folder

Whenever I hit the "Junk" button in Windows Live Mail I get this message;

"The selected message(s) could not be moved

A problem has occurred. Please try again."

This problem has been going on ever since I got the new laptop and started using Windows Live Mail. I have read that if I assign an email as junk it is reported to the senders ISP. I am getting spam from a Yahoo Mail account and wish to have this reported and stopped. Thanks

You are correct.
If you don't have too many contacts for your present mail account, I thoroughly recommend using Gmail. WLM Mail Tips.docx If not I'll help as best I can.
