Windows 7: Problems in Windows Live Mail Essential 2011

The question of not having the "Move up or down" is beyond me. It should be there, by default, on a mouse right click.

You can sort , with a compromise, by adding a digit to their name, e.g:

1 Accts
2 Bones
3 Specialists
....etc

Thank you Davehc, but where it has the "Move up or down" is only when clicking on the account email address. Being that "Outbox" is not an address it doesn't have it. Could this be the reason? Or is it another glitch?

This is a good idea, I'm going to try it. Thanks so much! Adela

Another way to move your folders:

Click on Folders at the top. Select the folder you want to move and at the top click the Move icon under "actions" and a window will open and you can select where to move the folder.

Gotta be a glitch, I'm afraid. There's mine!

Davehc, yes it must be a glitch...

Jim, I did try clicking on “Folders” then on the folder to be moved. I didn’t see an “Action” button so I just clicked on “Move To”, and it took me to the regular Move (or Copy) window where one puts files inside the folders by clicking on the folders, rather than moving the folder itself. Am I doing it wrong maybe? lol!


Thank you both again... Adela

Wrong icon. The Move To is for messages. A little further to the right is the Move icon. That will be greyed out until you select a folder then it will be available to use.

Jim, thank you for the very clear instructions! I clicked on the right icon but:

“Move” icon: It says “Select a folder to move this item to” and again, it went to the same window where we put files into folders, which is titled: ”Move the item(s) to the selected folder”.

I then tried the “Go to“ icon that says “Select a folder to go to”, but it went to the same window, with title: “Go to the selected folder”.

I thank you so much for your time but both icons seem to go to folders already there. It also seems there’s no way to achieve this task in WLM 2011... Adela

That is correct. The "item" is the folder you selected. It can be moved to any other folder that is on the list included the "Account Name". If you Move a folder to the Account Name it will list it below the "Deleted" folder.

The "Move To" moves messages and the "Move" moves folders but uses the same window for choices.

A Folder can be moved to the Account Name but a message can not.

Oh how kind of you, Jim, to continue to help me, but I'm sorry I'm becoming a nuisance.

I tried again, and it just doesn't allow me to insert a folder. It doesn't even allow me to use the right mouse on the email account name to insert a folder, within that window...

Quote:

This worked at the left column, where I dragged the folder into the email account name, which then it would place itself, alphabetically, right under the "Delete" folder...but after a day or two it stopped doing it, and at that point I came for help. But it won't do it within that window which apparently is only to insert files into folders?

Could it be yet another glitch in this program? Who knows, but I'm really most grateful for all the time you took on my account. Adela

Here is a step by step procedure. See if it works, if not you may need to do a repair.

Select the folder you want to move. "ATT" and select the Move icon and the Move window should look like this.

Then in the Move window select the Account Name and then select the OK button.

If this does not work you can try a repair.

Go to Control Panel/Program and Features and select Windows Live Essentials. then select Repair.
