Windows Mail keeps receiving messages
Hello everyone, I am new to this forum. I have Windows 7 (64 bit) on my PC.
I have an odd problem with Windows Live Mail. As soon as I installed it, I unchecked the following options under Options -> General:
Check for new messages every ... (30 minutes) and
Send and receive messages at startup.
So these options now DO NOT have the check mark next to them.
Despite this, my Windows Live Mail checks for new email messages on all accounts (both for my ISP, my hosting as well as on Gmail accounts) every 30 minutes or perhaps every 1 hour and downloads any new email messages, even when I don't tell it to do so. I am not sure about the exact time period but it certainly checks for new emails even when I don't tell it to do so. If I leave the computer overnight I always find new emails downloaded by tomorrow morning.
What could be the reason for this and is there any way to permanently switch it off?
