There are two possible answers to this problem.

1. The Incoming Mail (POP3): configuration is incorrect. You would need to check what this should be with your Internet Service Provider.

2. More likely Windows Mail is incompatible with the Azet.sk mail server.

Sorry can't be more helpful without English translation of error message.

Hi there,

every one knows that hotmail is no longer supported by windows mail program. But there is a little trick how we can be able to use hotmail with windows mail. Here is how:

- At first open up a windows xp mode and launch the outlook expres in picture 1. Use a google to find the pop3 settings for hotmail, i use this page: Hotmail Free POP3 and SMTP Access and Server Configuration Settings My Digital Life
and setup account in outlook express.

- Then in main account windows select hotmail and the click export as in picture 2.

- Click save where you want for example on your desktop and you will have this file showed on on picure 3.

- Then return to the windows seven or windows vista and open windows mail. Click tools then accounts a then click import a select the file you ceated in step 1 and 2.

Close the account windows and click send / request messages and you would be prompted for username and password. Enter it and it should download mesages from server.

I don't see Windows Mail on my program list after step 2. I see there are 2 Windows Mail folders each having the msoe.dll file but none have winmail.exe. So when I go to footnote 3 I don't know what to save.

You didn't follow the tutorial exactly as it's listed or when you ran "attrib -s -h WinMail.exe" from the run box it didn't work because the Program Files folder with WinMail.exe is not listed in the Enviroment Variables. In my opinion, the tutorial is wrong concerning this part. You should open an elevated command prompt in the Windows Mail folder or add the Windows Mail folder path to the attrib command when you run it from the run dialog box. Can someone more knowledgeable than me confrim or deny this?

Lol, I'll answer my own question, yes the tutorial is wrong. The full path has to be entered in the run box along with quotes around the path as in
attrib -s -h "C:\Program Files\Windows Mail\WinMail.exe"
of course change the drive letter to whatever drive it's on

The same goes for running it from cmd prompt. Just now when I opended a command prompt it defaults to the system32 folder. Instead of changing to Program Files Directory, I pasted the above command with quotes and it worked from the default path system32. Without the path and quotes it will not work in the console or run dialog box. In other words, just entering attrib -s -h WinMail.exe in the console or run dialog box will not work.

WinMail.exe is a hidden folder. If you apply part B) of Step 3 it will be visible. So this is what you do:

B) In Windows 7 Program Files, {NOT Program Files(x86)} open: Windows Mail ==> Tools ==> Folder Options ==> View Tab:
  • Dot: "Show Hidden Files"
  • Untick: "Hide protected operating files" & "Hide extensions for known file types"
  • Click: Apply ==> OK
If you do this, you will then be able to see Win.Mail.exe in the Windows Mail folder, and send it to desktop as a shortcut by right clicking and choosing the appropriate option.

What it asks you to save in Step 3 is a back-up copy of the msoe.dll file from your original Windows Mail folder in the normal 64bit Program Files. You don't need to touch the other Windows Mail folder in the 32bit Program Files(x86). This back-up copy is only done as a precaution, if you ever want to restore the original msoe.dll for any reason. You normally won't use it again.

Hope this helps. PB
