Windows 7: Problems with Windows Live Mail

Problems with Windows Live Mail

I am running Windows 7 Professional, and having all kinds of headaches with Windows Live Mail to access my AOL IMAP accounts. Every time I close it, I get a message saying it is purging files, then an error message since the serve disconnected. Very annoying. Also, when replying to an email that contained an attachment, I get the damned spinning wheel for 10 seconds or more, then the message I am sending does not disappear from the screen. Any ideas how to correct these problems?

IMAP stays on the server. If you can change it to POP3, I think you would be happy with the results. I do not know if AOL allows POP.
