Windows Live Email has the "hiccups"

Windows "live" email hiccups upon opening the program, resets itself, and after typing a few words a pop up asks "do you want to stay on this page, etc." Happens every time I try to compose a new email. What is the cause and fix for this weird behavior?

I can't find my Hotmail account


Step 1:
Hotmail has change to oulook.
MSN, formerly known as the Microsoft Network, is an assortment of websites and services provided by computer and Internet giant Microsoft. When users sign up to the MSN website, they are given the choice of choosing a wide range of services from the Windows Live network, which includes email through Hotmail, online storage in SkyDrive and the messaging program MSN Messenger. One advantage MSN users enjoy is having one account name and password that allows them to use all MSN services.

MSN, or the Windows Live network, provides users the opportunity to create new passwords rather than recover old passwords. Go to the MSN website or any Windows Live site and click the "Sign in" phrase. This will take you to the login page, which will require you to enter your username. Click the "Forgot your password" phrase. The reset password page will then open. Select among the three choices which one suits best your current needs. Choose the option "I forgot my password" and click the phrase that appears below the choice once you have selected it. Enter your MSN username, or Windows Live ID. More often than not, this is the email address that was used when you originally signed up with the MSN or the Windows Live network. Type the word of the phrase that appears in the captcha image located directly below the username field. You will also have the option to request a new captcha image or listen to the letters being dictated. Click "Next." The MSN or Windows Live network will then send a password reset message to the email that was originally used to sign up. Check the aforementioned email address. There may be some instances in which the email sent by the MSN or Windows Live Network could be re-directed to your spam folder. Check there if you can't find the message five to 10 minutes after requesting for a password reset. Open the email sent by MSN and click the appropriate link sent in the email to confirm the request for a password reset. This will open your default browser and take you to the Password Reset page that will allow users to create a new password for the account rather than retrieve the old password. The page will also provide a "Sign In" option to test out the user's new password. http://www.microsoft.com/protect/fraud/phishing/windowsliveid.aspx

Cant get on to live.com


You may notice occasionally that your MSN or Hotmail/Windows Live account has been locked by Microsoft. Due to this, you are unable to login to your email account. You may not even access your Windows Live Messenger. This typically occurs when your account was compromised. Someone may have hacked into your account or stolen your password. Windows Live offers a systematic process to recover and unlock your account. You will need an alternate email address to perform this task.

Navigate to Windows LiveID Account Recovery help page. Read the instructions and click "Continue" twice. Type an alternative email address in the box under Contact Email Address. Click "Continue." Log in to your alternate email account. Open the email from "Windows Live." Click the link provided to you in the email. This will take you to the password recovery process. Type a new password and retype it to confirm. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the reset. Try to log in to your MSN account using any of the MSN products, including Hotmail and Windows Live Messenger. You will be able to access your MSN account.

Hotmail not receiving. Enable IMAP How?


Windows Live Mail is the desktop email application of Office Live, introduced with Windows 7. Windows Live Mail replaces Outlook Express in Windows XP and Windows Mail in Windows Vista. You can use Windows Live Mail to access most free email accounts, such as Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo Mail, as well as those offered by Internet service providers. You can also set up your IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) account to use Windows Live Mail.

Open the Office Live email application. Click "Start," select "Programs" or "All Programs" and select "Windows Live Mail" from the "Windows Live Folder." Go to the "Tools" menu and select "Accounts" to open the "Accounts" dialog box. If you do not see thetoolbar, press the "Alt" key to display it. Click the "Add" button, select "Email Account" and click "Next." Type in the complete IMAP email address, such as "name@emailprovider.com" into the "Email Address." Enter the password for that account in the "Password" box. Enter the name you want displayed to email recipients in the "Display Name" box. Select the "Manually Configure Server Settings for Email" check box and click "Next." Select "IMAP" in the "My Incoming Mail Server Is" list. Enter "imap.ispname.com" into the "Incoming Server" box, replacing "ispname" with the name of your email provider. Type "smtp.ispname.com" into the "Outgoing Server" box, replacing "ispname" with the name of your email provider. Click "Next" and then click "Finish." Hope this helps.

The Microsoft Word Starter program was factory installed on the computer


This error occurs if

  • Windows Live Mail is set as the default mail client;
  • A Hotmail-type account (any account, including those on domains like hotmail.*, live.* and msn.com, that uses the Hotmail interface for webmail) is set as the default mail account;
  • That account is configured to use HTTP;
  • Windows Live Mail is not running when it is invoked by a sendmail or mailto command, like by clicking a link on a web page.


You can download an update to get it fixed. Get it from here: http://windows.microsoft.com/fil-PH/windows-live/essentials-other-programs


To work around the problem, ensure that Windows Live Mail is running before clicking a Contact us link or using the browser's or other application's Send by e-mail function.



I hope this helps!

How do i delete duplicate contacts in windows live email address book


I have assumed that:

1. Your identity is based upon an email account @hotmail.com,
or @msn.com, or @live.com - and
2. When you open WLMail, you allow it to sign into the same
hotmail, msn or live identity

If these assumptions are correct, an easy way to clean your
contact list is via the webmail interface.

Close Windows Live Mail

Use your web browser to sign into your mail account at
http://mail.live.com.

Click on Options, followed by More Options.

Scroll down to "Customize your contacts", and click on "Clean up
duplicate contacts".

Use the wizard to merge or delete duplicates.

Sign out from the webmail interface

Open Windows Live Mail and allow the program to sign into your
identity.

When you select the contacts menu, WLMail should synchronize with
the contacts list on the central server.

Can't use either Microsoft Live Mail or Lookout Express v6 with Belkin Router. Can't send or receive email Can you tell me what the email setup is for either one? Both email programs probably use the same...


Ask COMCAST for the names of their POP-server and of their MAIL-server, and configure Outlook Express to use those names.

Microsoft Live Mail is "web-based" -- all you need to do is to web-surf to their web-site, login, and click "send/receive" or click "compose" and later "send".

HP 4670 Scan to email: how to open Windows Live mail, not OE


Click the Show Menu button, and choose Options; if you see the traditional menus, go to Tools > Options. Both open the Options dialog: under the General tab, which should be selected by default, locate the bottom section, labeled "Default Messaging Program":

img1a2.jpgIf Windows Live Mail is not currently the default email program on Windows, the text next to the first button will read "This application is NOT the default Mail handler". Click the Make Default button, and it will be disabled (grayed out).

img1d.gif Confirming your change of default email clientThe text has now changed to "This application is the default Mail handler".This is a bit misleading, because Windows Live Mail will not becomeyour default email application until you actually have clicked the Ok or Apply button to confirm the change in configuration.
img36wlm.jpgSoclick Ok (no need to Apply first), and Windows Live Mail's optiondialog will close, integrating your new option choices. It is that easyto make Windows Live Mail your default email program. (If Windows LiveMail was already your default email client, nothing will happen.)
