iirc grits you have run the latest already so you are fine; Donz said he used an older one, how older I do not know.

As far as your question about sfc /scannow with WM, if you used the newer files then there are No Problems using it anymore since previously a necessary registry entry was added to the WinMailEdit.reg which circumvents that particular System File Checker problem of the past where where SFC would restore the original msoe...dll causing WM to fail, but not anymore; if it does then you don't have the latest files.

Sorry to be wasting space but this has been driving me nuts so went back to find posts only to end up more embarrassed 'cuz I'd forgotten about the Feb. Update.

WinMail Tutorial

Where can I find the "latest & greatest" Win Mail tutorial? Will it work in Windows 8 as well?
Thanks,
Bill

BTW, I used the very 1st Win Mail Tut for my Windows 7 desktop about 3 years ago (I think, lol) and it has worked flawlessly.

Hi Grits,

First of all anyone saying that SFC will break WinMail does not have the latest understanding of this project is all, and so obviously does not have nor have run the latest setup, because again and again that SFC issue has been fixed in the later versions and so using a later and/or the current Tutorial, SFC Will Not bother WinMail anymore because of a simple registry change made to fix that very problem. Tested and Proven a hundred times and discussed in this thread previously.
(actually using the very original Tutorials WinMailEdit.reg and running SFC did not break WinMail very much anyway, it just simply reverted the one msoe..dll causing WM not to work and in hindsight was never a big deal, but simply rerunning the latest Tutorial automatically puts the correct msoe..dll back in place anyway and ALSO it importantly prevents SFC from bothering WM going forward... simple as that)

I have not ever needed to run SRUT on any of my current setups. I could test if needed to see what it would do to WinMail, nothing that could not be easily fixed I am sure.

Certainly IE11 & and latest updates for it including the KB you mention is a Plus for Win7 users, and so with IE11 fully updated does not affect WinMail anymore. Tested and as this WinMail thread previously discusses and proves in detail.

As far as I can see Kayooh, at that time, just needed to run the current Tutorial on top of what he had to fix his WinMail operation, it would of taken just a few minutes to fix his WinMail problem. However I do not know what 'else' he has now done in the meantime to further dismantle WinMail.

All is Fine now

Hi endeavor and all,

everything seems to be working fine now. I don't believe that I am spamming everyone with duplicates anymore. The only problem I have now is that my inbox and sent folders are full of thousands of duplicates as a result of probably dragging too may files I guess from the old computer in an effort not to miss anything. I have been trying to find a free program that can remove duplicates from Windows mail but so far no luck.
Have a great weekend,

Have a great weekend,
There will be no program to do what you want unfortunately since iirc when you copy/drag/drop the emails from the other computers WM message store folders to the target computer, iirc, I seem to remember that when WM opens identifies and renames all 'non-target' computer emails with different random numbers, and if you already had identical email bodies then you'll end up with a mess to sort, iow, so you can't use a program to search for duplicate filenames since they all have different names...it would be nice if you could. I don't have your situation in front of me or I could see and determine which way to proceed depending. You may do it via a program, finding duplicates specifically by searching Modified dates (not creation dates) since Modified dates 'may' mostlikely have remained the same, but you must be careful of what you delete.
I would suggest to do it visually/manually and so if you go into each suspected message store folder located at:
C:\Users\Win7\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail\Local Folders
..of inbox, outbox, etc.. and sort each folder columns by the date "Modified" (not creation dates) and you will see all the duplicates in that way of column date duplicates, and all the ones with exact matches you could delete. But be careful what you delete being only email files, of which if you only stay in the right folders that should not be a problem... iow, you don't want to delete account files, etc.

If all that sounds too complicated surly, then you possibly could do it within WinMail itself with it open as you laboriously identity each duplicate email visually and delete them within WinMail itself.

If I had your computer in front of me I could see/determine what/which way you did what you did and what it ended up with, and then figure out a best plan to proceed to get rid of the duplicates.

Anyway you should stop dragging and dropping in that particular way to solve the problem going forward.
When you copy a WM message store from one machine to another new machine you're setting up, you always do it with the target machine being empty of emails. From there, if you want to make an always current backup of that new message store folder for safe keeping if needed. Not ever combining it with some of the old same store, that way you stay clear of making duplicates when you need to start fresh again.


Nice to see your kewl1, and take good care.

Speaking of dll files (msoe)- I've been wondering if one of my dll files is bad, missing in action, or what. Ever since I fixed this laptop up to run W. M. it has not emptied the Deleted Items folder upon exit, nor will it maintain the setting to do so via the Maintainance option under the Advanced tab. I tick the box for it, click Apply, click OK, and when I go back it's gone. I set up W. M. for a friend of mine the other day on a Win 7 machine and noticed on that machine that when the Advanced tab is open, there were several options listed in the big Settings box. Also, on hers, when W.M. is closed, it does empty the Deleted Items folder. On this one the Settings box is just one big empty box. There are no options listed at all in the Settings box. That got me thinking that maybe one of my dll files is bad. It has never emptied the Deleted items folder, no matter what you do, unless you do it manually and tell it do. I copied the dll files that I had used on hers and thought maybe I'd go through the W.M. folder and replace the dll files one at a time to see if I could get the options in the Settings box to show up, AND to get it to automatically empty the Deleted Items folder upon exit.
One thing I wondered- why is there a folder for W.M. in both Program Files and Program Files (x86)?? If I do replace the dll files, I'm planning on replacing them in both folders, the same corresponding ones, and see what happens.
Any ideas?
Have a good and blessed Sunday!
