Hi there,


I took all acounts off WLM

Then I imported the iaf file again

Then I went onto Network solutions and emptied my inbox

.....and then I ran out of time, so I will continue later.....

All good - next steps
  1. test email with current clean WLM & Netsol
    Post any errors
  2. Post 68 - ResetScripts.bat (still looking for 2nd stage notes - it's ok to just resetscripts for now)
    test email after script reset
    post any errors
  3. Post 69 - Norton - uninstall and removal tool
    test email after removing norton
    post any errors
If at any point WLM starts working - you can stop.

After we get done the resolution attempts above, there are only two more possible resolutions to try before I give up and say "Factory restore your machine", remove norton, install WLM, import AvalonJen.iaf, and try eMail. But let's keep plugging away - we've come this far
I have to duck out for a while... I'll check back on the progress you make

I just wanted to say that I read thru this entire topic from start to end to try to fix my own problem. I too have a Network Solutions account. It was set up on my laptop and has been working just fine with WLM for quite some time then about 2 weeks ago I started getting the same prolems and error as sonyvaio2012. All other items (iPad, iPhone, etc) were working just fine, only problem was with WLM.

I tried pretty much everything suggested prior. What finally worked for me was completely emptying my NS inbox.

Weird huh?

Thanks for helping more than just one!

Hi Slartybart,

Well, I am very chuffed to report that I can now send and receive e-mails!!!

After my last post to you I was away and when I came back to do the next steps - my emails came through!! It seems to be since I emptied my inbox - and that seems to be the case for the other person with the same problem.

It was still doing a couple of strange things - like still asking for my password even though the remember box was ticked. But, today it didn't do that!

I have downloaded my contacts into a .vcf file and when I tried to import them to WLM it said it was importing, but nothing happened and no contacts came in. Do you have any idea how I can get this to work?

I am so very grateful for your help. Your time and effort on my behalf is much appreciated - thank you.

Solved - Windows Live Mail (WLM) | Network Solutions (NetSol) Domain

Hi Jen,

Sorry for the delayed response-I was having network issues of my own and could not connect.

Glad to hear WLM is working for both you and for sefirothe.

WLM is a bit odd when importing Contacts. It seems to be a hybrid of Outlook, Outlook Express, and HotMail, but not Windows Mail. Try exporting your contacts to a Comma Seperated Values (.CSV) file and importing that file to WLM.

If you're satisfied that the issue is resolved, please mark this thread as Solved. Clicking here will add cred to the solution in post #72.

I think the total solution involves many of the steps previously taken, emptying the NetSol inbox might be the first step other folks take - then follow the thread if that doesn't fix it right off.

You are welcome and thank you for your diligence and patience. Your effort helped sefirothe.

I created a new file and moved all of the inbox messages to it.

It worked for me and I now can recieve Emails for my hotmail account via WLM.

I would guess that the number of messages in the inbox and the memory required to load it was more than WLM could handle.

Hi there, I'm now stuck on this issue. I have tried to import my contatcs, but it won't do anything. I posted the following new thread - but nobody has answered me yet. Can you offer any advice on this?

I have saved my gmail contacts as a .csv file in excel. But, it does give this error message:

Although the data is there in excel:

Then I try to import to Windows Live Mail as so:

And it says "importing"..... and then nothing else. No contacts come in and no other message.

Please can somebody tell me what I'm doing wrong?

You did the right thing by opening a new thread for a new issue.

I answered your query here and will follow that thread for the contacts issue.

That should do the trick and your contacts will show up in WLM.

Live Mail Error Code 0X800CC0C

Signed up for some "Free" software that you had to buy that would fix the software. HA. No good. Turned out that Comcast had changed the port for outbound emails.
