Windows 7: Win Live Mail - Folder contains emails, but all same content?

Win Live Mail - Folder contains emails, but all same content?

I've been using windows live mail (WLM)for years on my old Win 7 laptop without huge issues I've now got new laptop which had Win 8, but due to this issue I'm about to describe, I bought a new hard-drive and loaded it with a new copy of Windows 7 Pro.

I managed to transfer all my emails over. Some folder names got truncated, but it was all there (I'm talking of thousands of emails - the joy of running a business on the net).

I've been using it for less than a week, then on opening a folder which shows various emails all with different subject lines and dates as normal, but... the content in each one is exactly the same . I tried creating a new folder with a different name, then on my back-up, I created a folder with the same name as created in my Live Mail and filled it with emails. I then imported the new folder in to WLM, but the new folder has exactly the same issue as the original.

I do have a few other folders with the same issue as described above. They like the above were fine, but today they've got the same email content in each email.

Whilst the folder has different subjects and times for each email, when one is opened, it reverts to a time and subject relevant to the content.

Sorry to waffle on, but trying to give a full picture of the problem.

Can anyone suggest a way forward to make good please?

Thanks for all who have read this far and may be able to help.
