Hello Mark and poppa bear. You guys helped me out before in reinstating windows mail but now I can't seem to make it work. When I double click the windows mail icon nothing appears but I did notice that it was receiving mail. But now I double click the icon and it doesn't even receive mail. What can I do?

There was a Windows update that came out that stopped WinMail working. As a first step to see if that's what's causing the problem, simply reinstall the msoe.dll file as shown in Steps 3 & 4 of the tutorial on the first page of this thread.

Hope this helps. Cheers PB

Question: In WLM(not beta), is there not a Receive Mail button/menu item? I have one account, do I just click that Sync button when I want to check for new mail in between the scheduled time check? I know in OE and WinMail there is an item for just receiving mail.

Yup Sync = Send/Recieve. If you have more than 1 account, you can also just sync one account by pressing Alt>Tools>sync (I know not relevant to you, but someone might google this later and see it)

OK, thanks my friend. I guess I'm anal about having to hit only one button which is going to check one out of the two things I'm not going to do which is send mail.

Windows mail in Win 7

I follwed the instructions for getting Windows Mail running in WIN 7.
All went well except for one thing.
Winmail.exe can not be seen. I can not create the shortcut.
I did exicute the attrib instruction twice to unhide the file if that is what it does.

Can you help?

Thank Mike

It covers this situation in Note 1 of Step 3 of the tutorial, which says:

*Note 1: If WinMail.exe file is not visible in Windows Mail folder, then apply "Footnote 4" below.

Footnote 4 gives step by step instructions on how to make WinMail.exe visible. You will find this footnote at the bottom of the first page of the main tutorial.

Hope this helps. PB
