Windows 7: Windows Live Mail 2012 - Yeesh...big problems

Windows Live Mail 2012 - Yeesh...big problems

Is there a link that provides a fix that actually works?

Windows 7 Home Preimum 64 bit
WLM 2012 (Recently updated to 2012 from 2011 - issues started in 2011 version.)

My issues with WLM started when I rolled back to Windows 7 after trying out Windows 10. I noticed that I couldn't delete certain email messages. I found a work-around, but can only delete one message at a time - I have no patience for that. Anyway, I uninstalled WLM 2011 and installed WLM 2012 hoping I'd be able to recreate CLEAN email accounts. No luck - all OLD emails were moved over from 2011 to the 2012 version. This put me back to the same issue - having to delete one email at a time.

I tried the recommended fix: To repair Windows Live Essentials - That did not work.

I have disabled any anti virus email/scans that might be causing problems -That did not work.

I started to receive a pop-up "Recovering Windows Live database" - This is a recent thing and I'm not sure why.

Anyway, I'm at a loss and pretty much have given-up trying to fix this. Again, is there a fix for this? If so, please provide a link even if it's instructions for doing an uninstall/reinstall without adding old emails from the prior version.

Edit to add: I just want to mention that I deleted over 2,000 old emails manually one at a time. Afterwards, I closed WLM and reopened - the emails that I deleted were present again. Does this have to do with "Recovering Windows Live database" ??? Oh man, I spent so much time deleting those emails for naught.

You might want to check this site.. I did the settings mentioned here as Microsoft will be dropping WLM in June and these settings will keep it going from what I gather.
Outlook Mail, Outlook.com, Hotmail in Windows Live Mail

Okay. Not at all what I wanted to hear, though. No fault of yours, of course. Too bad they're doing away with WLM.

Thanks for the info.

I have totally deleted WLM from my system and have been using Mozilla..It's so so much better the WLM. Don't know were your at with email now but I have to tell you I wish I got Mozilla a while back.
