windows mail error

Hi all
Firstly I hope no one would mind me posting this here as I also posted in another seven-sub-forum and have been suggested to post it here.
I have installed windows mail according this manual. All seeems to work fine and I have done this about three times for my partner's school supplied machine.
This time round she gets an error which comes up randomly when she's wanting to download her pop mail.It can happen within the logged in time that she gets the error and other tries go successfully.The error page is empty.
Has anyone of you come accross this?
Any suggestions?

I use windows mail on a win7 netbook, and everything was Ok until I installed SP1... first the msoe.dll issues described by others kicked in, then the computer went haywire, deleting inetcomm.dll... After running a disk check I found that about 155MB of dll files had been treated as lost chains, orphans etc and this effectively crippled the computer so much that I had to wipe the HD and clean install.

Before even trying to use WinMail I also reinstalled the SP1 (as I have a downloaded / offline copy) and then when I went to get Windows Mail working I discovered that all the files I need were already installed - I only had to replace the msoe.dll to have it working again.

Bizarre!

But things are not fully OK yet. I read mail using the imap protocol, and previously when I deleted a message the subject line was struck out and to remove the message I had to click the 'purge' button. Now messages are purged instantly I delete them... does anyone know of a way to change this, as I prefer having the option to purge, in case I accidentally click the wrong message?

TIA

Simon

Is this Windows Mail stable and any caveats?

I havent gone through the 103 pages to see if there is already an answer. But I too wish I had OE on my Windows 7 machine.

With the instructions on how to get Windows Mail on your Windows 7 machine are there any issues in doing so and how stable is it?

Hi Sammy
I have done this Windows Mail install approx. 3 times on my partners school machine. With the exeption of the last the other times it has been very successful. Just need to follow the tutorial.

I have done it on both my laptop and desk top and it is very easy. Not only that but over the past year my desktop was rebuilt and I have changed hard drives etc on both machines causing me to re-install Windows and again I just followed the simple instructions and re-instated Windows mail with no problems at all.

No stability problems at all because it's part of windows albeit hidden and just needs the tweek described in here to wake it up.

An update to Windows could bork the *.dll tweek at an inopportune time and you will have to try going back to the tutorial after they update it or keep a copy of updated Vista handy to get the "fixed" *.dll file. I think this has happened a couple of times already.

I find that every so often Windows Mail freezes / crashes...

first it stops responding to anything I click on, then it gives me a message about 'deleting messages', even though I am not usually trying to do this.

I dont know what happens next, as usually by then I will have closed WM using the task manager via ctrl+alt+del (or ctrl+shift+esc - which brings up the task manager immediately).

Like many people I refuse to use WLM - it makes my Netbook sluggish, its uses far too much resources (memory) and lacks the ability to just 'send' messages (sync is not the same, as I dont want to download everything). Also, on messages which have a large number of recipients WLM seems to verify every email addy before opening the messages, taking 20-30 seconds to do this. By way of contrast, WM just opens the message, immediately - which of course is how things should be!

Hi, I'm finding it impossible to install Windows Seven service pack 1 (error 80004005, both with live update and the downloaded service pack), and am wondering if the email hack may be the reason. I have tried all the usual suggestions and nothing works. Sorry I did not have time to read thru the other 103 pages of this thread to see if others had the same problem. If so is there a way to get around it?

I doubt the hack has anything to do with it as it didn't in my case. It undid the hack and all I had to do was do it again afterwards. That error can occur for many reasons, one being a program actively preventing it such as an antivirus active, another being not enough free space on that partition or disc to house the temporary files it creates...is that the case by any chance?

Microsoft offer free support for service pack installation problems (or any kind of update installation issues) so you could try them as the last resort.
