Windows 7: Windows Mail

28 Feb 2014   #1470

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Wow, and to think I held off of installing KB2909921 for fear of having it mess up my WinMail. I don't recall having any problems with it (WM) tho' like the other posters did. Thanks for easing my mind, now I'm off to go ahead & install it.

A bit OT here, my fear comes from the fact that I have no back ups, no images. I haven't been able to afford an external drive so just keep crossing my fingers.

@ Ron,
I don't want to agree with you Ron because I am a true WinMail user, but you know... are surly right, as far as MS goes, we are coincidental and unintentional, but that's the excitement and advantage of living on the edge, especially if you are in control of it, and if you prefer all the advantages and nostalgic of using WinMail... and personally I do, so imho&e, I'd rather use WinMail than any other

@ Grits
Hi, good to see you, you are a part of an innocent and enduring history you know!
..but as for your fear, even at the very least, if you have the MS built-in System Restore enabled and know how to use it, then for free of charge, you are set free with only the off-chance limitation that depends on your HD longevity.

If I haven't already said this, I think members who benefited from endeavor's testing (I did)
should definitely "tip the scales" (I did) on post# 1452

Shortcut to the scales on post# 1452:

It takes a lot of effort to set up test environments and ensure that plain vanilla Windows is running. We all have our favorite utilities and they cannot be used in a pure test.

That plus all of the msgs endeavor was willing to analyze. Above and beyond the call of duty in my book.

OK. I gave him the rep for post 1452. Then I wanted to give him another for his explanation of "e" in post 1473 (even more helpful to me) but was informed that I must spread it around before I can rep him again.

Win 7 Ultimate SP1 64 bit
Oh no. New Problem

Just when I was so excited about my Windows mail working, I find out that it is sending everyone two copies of each email. I tested this extensively tonight by sending many emails to all my email addresses and sure enough they all go as duplicates. Has anyone ever had this crazy problem before?

Hi kewl1,

Yes that happens when you have possibly another email client like Outlook installed and both are not setup correctly, or that somehow there is two accounts listed, at any rate either of which is easy to fix. By the way, what have you recently done different, install or otherwise, when this started happening compared to the other day when it was fine?

I could type different scenarios out for you, but thought lets empower you to succeed on your own so I'll give you a link and you you can research the few simple steps to fix it.

Please let us know which situation you had of the pick, and which resolve worked to fix your situation.

Win 7 Ultimate SP1 64 bit

This has been going on for a while but only since I got the new laptop and have been trying to fix Windows Mail. It must as you say have something to do with duplicate accounts. I phoned my ISP today and they said there is nothing at their end and it has to be in my software. They said to call MS but somehow I didn't think MS would help me with Windows Mail on my Windows 7 machines.

I suspect now that it has something to do with dragging and dropping files. This was done on both laptops because the IE11 problem even affected the old laptop. Now that I am pointed in the right direction I will do some more experimenting tonight when I can find some time. I will also check to see if I have Windows Mail somehow running in both the 32 and 64 bit folders if that is possible.

Ahh and also now that I think of it, I use Outlook only for my business email but same ISP etc and it is not affected ie neither sending nor receiving duplicates.

Thanks again for your help.

It's not the things you mention at the end of your first paragraph, and your last paragraph tells you it's not the ISP nor do I think that was ever a possibility in your case. Nor is it both 32 & 64 running. When you are investigating things on Google or any engine, be 'discerning' to all the things that are written here and there, and consider the ones that ring true.

I was pointing you more in the lines with, while WinMail is open, go up to the top tab of
Tools> Accounts ...and in here do you have two of the same accounts listed, etc..

Also if what you are meaning by dragging and dropping, well if you are doing it in the
C:\Users\-yourcomputername-\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail
folder, then you have to be very careful in how you do that, since usually if you are trying to bring one WinMail store up to date on another computer, you have to replace the entire folder and not just copy into it, because if you do then you will end up with duplicate emails and multiple accounts if they are different between each setup.
