Windows 7: Windows Live Mail Issue

16 Mar 2010   #11


brady: oooh. Yeah, I dont know if that would change anything though. Its not the address thats causing it, its my account.
exactly, I would change accounts from live mail to something that might work better in your situation.

Windows 7 Ultimate Home 64

Okay, now you're making me confused. I thought you were talking about the forum's bot email with that last reply. But like I said previously, I check my email either through messenger (which with Windows 7 and Vista only opens Windows Live) or through the Windows Live icon on my desktop.

I can check it via, but from the sounds of it, the issue is with Hotmail too. The accounts are all connected.

Now that I know its a known issue and that Microsoft is working on it, I'm just going to have to deal with it for now. Now that I know, I can deal with it. Its a pain, but its workable.

I am sorry, I do not with to complicate things any further.

What I was trying to say, is that through your forum, you must input an email address that notifications are sent to, right? for example: support@whatever[dot]com.

But there shouldn't be a domain limitation put on that email address, so technically you could create an alternate email address like: whatever@gmail[dot].com and input that NEW address into your email address field. Then the notifications would be send through that account instead of your .msn or whatever you're using now.

Issue with Spell Check in Windows Live Mail
Hi - I have an issue with Spell Check in Windows Live on Windows 7 Home Edition. It's an odd problem, as it occurs only about 20% of the time, but often enough to be annoying! When I click on Spell Check, nothing happens. Then I click "send" to send the e-mail. I get this message: "The...

I am running Windows 7 and using Windows Live for email. I am connected wireless and my other computer is running XP and using OE for email. I receive all emails using OE but don't receive them all in Windows Live. Is this an ISP issue or ?? Thanks.
