Windows 7: Emails missing from Windows Live Mail 2011 after resuming from sleep

Emails missing from Windows Live Mail 2011 after resuming from sleep


I just installed a fresh Windows 7 Home x32 French on a new PC of a friend.
I installed french Windows Live Mail Version 2011 (Build 15.4.3555.0308) .

Everything works great except when the PC goes out from sleep state, WLM is then unable to retrieve all the waiting emails while the PC was sleeping.
It is only able to get just the last email sent me 3-4 mn before the awakening.
Even if I press F5 several times, no emails at all is downloaded.

On my personal Desktop Windows 7 Ulimate x64 english, I use Outlook 2010 but for fun I installed WLM 2011 same version. Even when I launch it, several days after the last send/receive performed manually, my WLM retrieve all the waiting emails.

TOTALLY unable to understand this stupid behavior.

Thanks for your help

I resolved my issue.
I just let you known the fix in case of others falls in the trap.

1) I had to know that the mailbox of the Internet Provider was hosted invisibly by Gmail
2) I had to know that Gmail allows only ONE download for each email. After the uniq download the email is flagged as downloaded and nobody else could get it again except from getting connect to WebMail Gmail
3) I configured my Windows Live Hotmail to retrieve the emails from this email adress
4) I configured as well Windows Live Mail to retrieve the emails from this email adress

As Windows Live Hotmail retrieve email every 30mn (PS: max 50 emails each time), when WLM was not running (PC in sleeping mode) all the emails were downloaded to Hotmail. When WLM was running and was retrieving email every 10mn everything went pretty good except if the hotmail extraction occurred just between 2 WLM extractions thus stolen eventual emails from WLM.

I removed the reception of the mails from my Live ID of Windows Live Hotmail
