Windows 7: WLM not saving all Sent emails

19 Feb 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
WLM not saving all Sent emails

Suddenly Windows Live Mail has gone erratic in saving emails in Sent Items. Problem just cropped up in the last few days. The option to save-in-Sent is checked.

Doing several tests of a series of three emails sent to the same address, it generally does not save the first one but DOES save the subsequent emails. Have run this test several times with the same result. For some reason, it skips the first one sent to an particular address but then saves others sent immediately. However, after an interval of time, another new message to that same address will not be saved the first time it's sent.

The messages are being sent -- I have received those that I sent to myself (to another account) and friends tell me they have received messages that I know were not saved to Sent Items.

No changes were made to Windows Live Settings prior to this problem arising. It was working fine a week ago.

Any ideas?

Operating system is Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with Windows Live Mail 2011 Version 2011 (Build 15.4.3538.0513)

Have you checked the "Sent" folder in the storage area as well as the sent folder under each POP3 account?

Same thing happening to me. Series of emails sent to same address and the first message was not saved to sent items.

Any way to correct this. seems like a problem.

Also... wrote an email and haddn't sent it. The computer did an auto shutdown I assume after an update self downloaded or something. when computer was started, the email that I was working on was not saved in Drafts or anywhere else on my computer.

any help offered would be great.
