Windows 7: Windows Mail

Thanks Greg, okay I actually do have that one too the packrat that I am, and actually back in 2009 bench tested it and still have the registry/file tracking footprint of its install and my notes.

I misspoke since what I'd typed 'wlsetup-web.exe' is the on-line installer which only grabs the latest version, but that full off-line installer file I do still have of that series final build v14.0.8117.416, being 'wlsetup-all.exe' @140 MB representing Windows Live Essentials, which includes 9 programs of bloat but thankfully you can un-check the other 8 and only take the 'Mail' install.

I'm a first time Win7 user and thanks to this tutorial, I have Windows Mail running well. I managed to move my messages, rules, contacts to the new machine from my Vista machine.

I also have the Junk filter working but still have one question. Is there a way to either automatically or manually update the Junk Mail database?

Thanks for all the help,
Jim

WM missing from program list for defaults

That would open Windows Mail, but not a new letter and, of course, didn't import the file I was trying to send. And then I could only undo that with a system restore.

I had (have?) hopes that by going to: default programs> set program access and computer defaults> custom> choose default e-mail program> Windows Mail (it does show HERE!)> and lastly enable access to this program, I would finally make Windows Mail fully functional.

Alas, I may never know. The "enable access to this program" check box is greyed out and when I tell it "OK" it resets back to "Use my current e-mail program" (Which IS Windows mail).

So, bottom line, How can I get my Right Click (on some file)> Send To> Email Recipient to open a letter ready to send in Windows Mail?????
Tangent - did you ever resolve this issue? It's exactly my problem too, so I'd be grateful to know how you did it!

Windows Mail window is invisible

I just installed Windows mail for a client I just upgraded to Windows 7-64 Pro from XP, and he wasn't interested in learning Outlook. After converting his inbox and address book through a third-party app, it worked like a charm for half a day. Then he called me and told me it wouldn't open any more.

Sure enough, when I opened it the window was invisible, though I could see it under Processes in Task Manager - but not under Applications. Multiple retries and a reinstallation of the new MSOE.dll file made no difference. It was late on Friday and so I just set up Outlook 2010 (he had it anyway), imported all his info and account, and he's running. But not happy.

What might have happened with WIndows Mail?

I have Windows Mail running fine with two exceptions:
1.) No way to update the junk mail database.
2.) Spell check doesn't work, gives ms a language error.

Has anyone solved these problems?

John did you already try what Tangent did?
What happened?
It used to be when OE's Make Default button in email Options> General was greyed out, there was a vbs file an MVP made to set it back, but surly for WM there has to be a same simple way to get it back for you. It's just a MAPI problem and can't be that complicated.

Have you searched Google for some help?

Spelling, I couldn't be without mine that's for sure, mine works works fine.
Here too, back in the days for OE it was a simple fix for Spelling and we had many MVP's that made various little ditties to fix these things. Anyway, have you searched Google about that one I see a lot of hits on it. We don't have full time resident techs here to do it, so everyone has to do their part and search out the answers and bring their success info back to share to help others.

I don't use the Junk Mail filter at all and have it set to Off.

I was curious though about it..

Is this the Junk Filter Update that you mean?

I just took downloaded it and installed it on my Vista box and Software Tracked the entire install File/Registry, I expected to see a lot of changes, but was surprised yet happy to see very few changes at all. The only pertinent file it changed was in C:\Program Files\Windows Mail and it was the OESpamFilter.dat, it changed it from v6.0.6002.18005 to v6.0.6002.18580.
I came over to my 7 box and went to replace mine with it in the same folder, and to my surprise it's not in there, in fact comparing my Vista to 7 folders on each computer in front of me, there's 3 files in Vista that's not there in 7, one of course is that OESpamFilter.dat and the others are OESpamFilter.dll and WindowsMailGaget.exe..

Do you have the first two in your 7 folder?

Perhaps I don't because I have my 7 Junk Filter set to off from day one.

I was going to give you my updated OESpamFilter.dat file, but now dunno what you got of if even your's ever worked on 7 as is?

Best you leave him with Outlook then, or you will have to babysit the project constantly. Not that you should have to. It's just that leaving auto updates on for him may have broken it, but just running the winmail32.bat (or 64) should instantly put it all back working. If he tried installing WLM or something then all bets are off, unless you had a backup partition image that is.

My WM has worked for years and never ever any problems with it. Af first I didn't use it full time because I kept booting WXP, but these days 7 WM is full time, I have all my favorite tech News Groups loaded, everything is setup just like I always had on OE from day one on 9x for what is it 13 years now. WM may be slightly fancier but everything is still in the same place and I can almost use it with my eyes closed I've used it so much.
I think I will keep WM going till 2020 <grin>
