Windows 7: Can't move emails to any other folders

16 Jul 2015   #1

Windows 7 Pro, 64 bit SP1
Can't move emails to any other folders

I using Windows Live Mail, with DSLextreme, Which somehow has something to do with Gmail.(I don't understand how that works.) Everything has worked fine for years. Started having trouble with emails, couldn't do anything. I did a system recovery. Now I can send and receive emails. but can't move them from one folder to another. If I try to move an email to Delete, Spam, draft, important etc folders. I get an error message. "the selected messages could not be copied to the folder." Details>>
UID COPY failed,
Configuration: Accountslextreme (username) User name:
If I select "send/ receive" I get a list of errors for all folders,
Unable to send or receive messages for theDslextreme (username) account. Header download for the 'Spam' folder did notcomplete. Could not select 'Spam' on the IMAP server. Try updating the folderlist and then try again.
Server Response: SELECT failed
Server: ''
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCCD2
Protocol: IMAP
Port: 993
Secure(SSL): Yes

I don't know how to update folder list so I haven't tried that yet. But from what I have read on the net, that has not helped others with this problem.

Sorry this is so long but wanted to give as much info as I can.
