Now live mail opens on the old laptop and i can see the emails i seem to have lost but i cannot open them or export them, When live mail starts on the old Lt a message comes up saying contacts failed to load. Windows live mail is incorrectley configured please re install. Then another message box tell me sorry something unexpectedd happened and WLM must close. what to do now i wonder
You better backup the folder WLM...before reinstall
You've got to unhidde files and folder from the control panel => option folder and import in a safe place the all lot WLM folder where your mails are.
WLM doesn't recognize .eml...only Windows Mail and Outlook does
there's always after the tutorial "how to reinstate Windows Mail in Windows 7": Windows Mail
