Windows 7: Can't send XML files in Windows Live Mail

All I can say is that the current non-beta version of WLM sends your Procession.xml fine on my Window 7 (32-bit) installation. My security software is MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials).

I'm making a little progress with this problem. I can send small xml files, but not larger ones. I don't know where the breakpoint is, though. Could this be an AVG (which I use) setting? A firewall setting? Thanks.

Did you reboot the PC after turning them off? (Just to make sure they're effect wasn't lingering around.)

Tried it with AVG and the Windows firewall disabled with a restart. No luck. Same problem. Very perplexing.

Look for or create any file types on your pc that are between .5 MB and 1.0 MB in size; rename them with a .xml extension. The idea is to be able to say somthing like "WLM sends any size file as long as it is not XML; but if it is XML it will send it if less than so many MB." You should also be able to say something like "All the emails that WLM cannot send are sent fine in Outlook using exactly the same POP3/SMTP account stettings and "To" and "From" fields." (We are not interested in browser based email such as Hotmail or gmail or yahoomail. Only PC client based like Outlook or WLM.)

I found three files, one a pdf, one a jpeg, and one an mp3, of 609, 807, and 1765 Kb each, respectively. I renamed each with an .xml extension. I sent all successfully in MS Outlook and in WLM.

I changed the WLM POP3/SMTP account settings to match those of Outlook, but WLM still would not send the real xml file (Outlook did send it OK).

I'll continue to experiment was real xml files of varying sizes, until I reach a point at which WLM won't send the file.

Sending XML through Windows Live Mail

I had this problem but found that if I sent the file to a Condensed folder using Winzip I was able to send the file no problem
