Windows 7: Receiving Comcast mail w/ Live

24 Nov 2009   #1

Receiving Comcast mail w/ Live

I recently set up Win Live Mail, after buildiing a new computer with Win 7 on it. I use Comcast as my mail client and with xp never had any issues. I set up Live w/ Comcast and all SEEMED well. Today I am away so I used my laptop to log into and have 144 new messages, some dating back to two weeks ago. Some of these messages I have received in Live, read and deleted but most haven't made it to Live. Any ideas?

Just a guess take a look in storage folders. It will be located at the bottom of the tree, left side, when you first activate WLM. The storage is suppose to handle the old mail that was on your prior service, when you transferred everything to
win 7.

Possibly, for some reason the old mail did not download correctly, and the problem is gone, now. Keep your eyes open to be sure that all new mail arrives correctly.
