You have a backup from before the problem started? If not repair install from dvd and re-install WLM

Have you recently added a new e-mail account to WLM?

I've just tried my 2 accounts (Live & GMAIL) and both allow for seelcting of multiple condition & action rules.

You did not say which repair you did. If Windows (the OS) is working normally it sounds like you could get by with a repair of WLM itself via "Programs and Features"/"Windows Live Essentials".

Can you also provide a snip/pic so we can see. I'm not able to reproduce the issue

Another type of repair is to run your original downloaded installation file for Windows Live Essentials. Normally this is intended for adding additionl programs from the "Essentials" group. But if you uncheck all the new stuff, it will say that it will update the stuff you already have installed, including "Mail".

Did not work. The install program just said that mail was already installed. No options
