Yep solved the problem for me with the duplicates. But now unbelievably I am back to having the "Windows has stopped Working" problem but after fading and freezing it restarts after a minute so I think I will remove IE11 again

SlartyBart, thank you for that link to the "scales". I didn't know you could do anything like that. I was only too happy to follow through with your suggestion. Thanks again.

Hey kewl1, I hope you or roncerr didn't misunderstand about why I just put a Search link there, Certainly not because I didn't want to give you a specific answer or link while knowing what the results of the link I gave were, but my aim was that since WinMail at this point is used by fewer and fewer people as time goes on, I like to enable the ones that actually do use it to get to know enough about it so that then they too can turn around and be of help to others like we do. And so then finding a problem on ones own is empowering no matter the subject, and I just wanted to pass that empowering on is all, I hope that was okay here, my intention was good.

Anyway, glad you have the duplicate emails solved. I also hope your email store is in order which is important since all your account information is contained within. That folder:
C:\Users\-yourcomputername-\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail
.. is very important in WinMail's case for a dozen reasons, and a backup of that very folder can prove to be uniquely helpful in another dozen situations.

I'm not sure why now your client is crashing now, I don't know the specifics of what you actually did. It can't be the same thing unless you used System Restore again and went back to the wrong point, etc, changing the outcome around again.

~~~~~~~~

Also to Bill for your very supportive post thank you, and Everyone that followed through with it thank you very much for your support, the appreciation given makes it worth it, and you bet I reciprocated it as well.

endeavor, may I ask what you mean by "I also hope your email store is in order"? And, I'm sure this is a dumb question: until I get an external drive for keeping back ups, would just making a back up folder just for WM do me any good in case of problem with WM. I do realize that it wouldn't help if my whole HDD gives me fits.

Thanks for all you do for all of us that are hooked on WinMail.

Hello my dear grits,

It was in response to kewl1 with what he was doing, and if he was dragging and dropping (copying) mail folders as he said within windows from one OS to another in that store folder, all of which if not done to and from an identical setup and always from the main OS first, may affect adversely the WinMail store folder and what actually shows up in WinMail's GUI itself, as well may totally mess up his Account info which could be why he was having an issue.
Store Folder is just the nick-name I call it, someone else may call it different, but again it's the folder in Windows located at:
C:\Users\-yourcomputername-\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail
It contains all your WinMail GUI folder structure, i.e., your inbox, outbox, etc ...and every mail-box that's within the WinMail's GUI itself, even within WinMail when you create a new named folder and any subfolders to it which you keep certain categories stored or diverted into, also if you have newsgroups setup like I do, and so for instance in total my WinMail GUI has nearly 50 separate mail/news folders/subfolders. And so my point in saying the email Store Folder, it is that Windows folder which houses All the mail folders and their structure, that show up within WinMail's GUI.
Also, it stores all your Account(s) info, etc, in the form of these types of files
"account{00ABFB94-230C-4163-A707-DD4AC521BCCA}.oeaccount"
..will all be different numbers of course that's just an example, are all contained within that Store Folder too. (That folder is one of the reasons why I like WinMail, but very well may be the reason another tech person dislikes it; but all OT to this tutorial)
It's important (to me anyway) because I have many different OS setups, point is, with that store folder when I'm setting up a new OS where WinMail is Always setup identical in each, and so one of the first things I do is zip that folder from my main OS, and replace that into the new OS I'm setting up, and presto, All the complicated WinMail GUI folder structures, all their emails, and 90% of the Account setup is done for me automatically just by doing that, then the usual is the rest of the email setup. (I'm sure I left a few little things out by typing off the top so don't quote follow. Also realize in perspective the average person doesn't know where or what this folder is, or really care, and so this information is more for advanced users and so don't try this unless you are exactly sure what you are doing, and above all have a backup first)

And so yes grits if your email message store is that critical to you, it could prove valuable to backup that folder if you don't have partition imaging to retrieve it, but if you use a system Restore Point will catch it; otherwise I personally would periodically right click on and zip that folder, and copy/keep it elsewhere for backup, yes.

How to re-load Windows Mail?

Hi All,

I have been using the original method of installing WM on 7.

Several months ago, After my computer would come out of sleep mode WM would time out when trying to check for mail.
I would just have to X out and re-open WM and it would work fine.

I'm considering a re-load of WM via the batch file.

Should I restore the original msoe .dll and re-boot before running the batch file. (Or what)

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Don

Hi Donz,

If you are using the new Tutorial method (which is recommended since it has important updates since the original method) but it also runs the new bat file, and so no you don't need to do anything with the current msoe...dll except run the Tutorial process which will automatically replace the msoe...dll with the correct one irregardless.

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

Will it save my messages in my Inbox etc. Or do I have to do an export/import for messages?
