Windows 7: Windows Mail problem

Windows Mail problem

I've been using Windows Mail ported over from Vista successfully, until it developed a problem I couldn't correct.

No images were being downloaded, just showing a red cross where images should be. No options had been altered and each e mail was showing the
' Click here to download pictures' at the top of each one.

From within Vista I deleted the Windows Mail folders in Windows 7 and copied the working folders from Vista to Win 7, but still the images were not being downloaded.

I was unable to correct it, so reinstalled 7 from an Image File from when it was running correctly.

Problem sorted, but has anyone else had problems like this running Windows Mail in 7 ?

Hi David,

Haven't had that particular problem, but have had some other minor nuisances. They seem to come and go. System restore points sometimes help. If they don't activate WM in the final release, and I'm guessing they probably won't, I'll have to settle on something else unless I can get WM working properly.

Hi Gary,
I tried Thunderbird, but it didn't let Kaspersky integrate the Anti-Spam part, or I couldn't see how too.
The anti spam in Kaspersky Internet Security works very well for me, intercepts so many nasties, bank phishing and 'pharmacy offerings'!!!!!
I used to pay a subscription for Spam Fighter, but having it built into KIS is a bonus as it works much better than Spam Fighter did.

Which is why I want to stay with Windows Mail, unless anyone has a recommend for alternatives.

I always make back up image files of my system partitions, so it's only a few minutes to revert back to a working system, (after I've broken it again)

What about using Windows Live Mail, which I believe is the email client Microsoft want us to use instead of Outlook Express and Windows Mail.
I use that and like it as it means I can have all my email accounts, RSS Feeds and Newsgroups in the one application.

Allthough I can't wait to use the latest software, in other ways I'm old fashioned.
I tried Live mail and much prefer Windows Mail.

There are some things I like about Live Mail, but the things I don't like out weight them. I prefer Windows Mail. I'll be getting Office 2007 soon and will then go to Outlook. I liked that when I used it before Vista.

Check your anti-virus settings first & those of any other protection software you may have.

Make sure in Windows Mail Tools/Options/Security that the options are as shown in the attached thumbnail...Internet Zone and the two other highlighted ones are unchecked.

Thanks Peter, but the tick should be in the,
'Block images and other external content in HTML e-mail.
This makes Windows Mail ask if you want to download the image, otherwise for undesirable e-mails, they get a response back from you automatically.

Whatever the fault was, it wasn't an altered option in the program, but something else, registry perhaps ??

Another thought....

1. Click Tools, then Options.
2. Click the Read tab
Make sure the "Read all messages in plain text" is unchecked.
