I can't received my email using window 10 livemail, need help


No you haven't. :>)

LiveMail is now dead as they used a system called DeltaSynch.

You have to set up brand new accounts using a system called IMAP. Once your mail accounts with Hotmail or MSN are set up, your mail will load. Once you have it all, check the mail and folders in both accounts and then delete the original accounts.

Hotmail IMAP Settings To configure your Hotmail with an email client that supports IMAP and SMTP, you can use the following settings in your email app.
Incoming (IMAP) Server
  • Server address: imap-mail.outlook.com
  • Port: 993
  • Encrypted Connection: SSL
Outgoing (SMTP) Server
  • Server address: smtp-mail.outlook.com
  • Port: 25 (or 587 if 25 is blocked)
  • Authentication: Yes
  • Encrypted Connection: TLS
User name: Your full Hotmail email address, including '@hotmail.com'.
Password: Your Hotmail account password
Normally you should set up your Hotmail account via IMAP protocol. Basically IMAP sync your Hotmail account among different devices and computers, not only the Inbox folder. Also any operation you performed one a device will be synced to the Hotmail server and other devices or mail clients connected to your Hotmail account. POP3 however simply download your emails from your Inbox folder offline. You can them manage emails on your local computer. However under some circumstances, you may also find POP3 mail actually works better than IMAP email. Check out more details here: What are POP3, IMAP and their pros and cons?

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 you delete old email 'address'es in my computer file


Which email account ?

Erase Email Addresses in My Computer


Email addresses can be stored on a computer if you use email software, such as Microsoft Office Outlook and Yahoo Messenger Beta.


Deleting email addresses manually from these programs does not actually completely erase them from your computer.


To erase email addresses permanently, meaning that a hard drive recovery program will not be able to restore them if it is used, requires a process called formatting, which completely erases the information on a hard drive.


Click on the shortcut "My Computer," which you can locate on your desktop.


Right click "Local Disk (C:)" and select the "Format" option.


Change the "Allocation Size Unit" to "Default Allocation Size."


Click the "Start" button.

The email addresses, as well as the rest of the files on the hard drive, will now be erased.


Delete a Live Mail Email Address


Windows Live Mail is a part of the Windows Live suite of productivity and entertainment programs, and it is intended to be the new free email client for Windows beginning with Windows 7.


After trying Windows Live Mail, you may decide that you have added too many email addresses and that you would prefer to use the email client to check only one address.


Remove an email address from Windows Live Mail to reduce the clutter in your email inbox.
Launch Windows Live Mail, and browse to the "Tools" menu at the top of the screen.


Click "Accounts."

Click the email account that you would like to delete.


Click the "Remove" button.

A message will appear to remind you that any messages belonging to the email account that are not backed up in another location will be deleted permanently.


Click "OK" to confirm.

The account will be deleted immediately.


Click "Close" to return to Windows Live Mail.


Delete Hotmail Adresses


Log in to your hotmail account and click "Help."


Search for "Cancel Account" and select "Why are all my email messages gone?"

Expand the option that says "Close a free Hotmail account" and click "Windows Live Hotmail close account."


Click "Close Account" on the page that opens.


If you do not sign in to your account for 365 days, your account will also be deleted.





Hope this helps.

I need to delete my email and replace with an exisisting one nataliedavies76@hotmail.co.uk and replace to leeroy_999@hotmail.co.uk thanks


You didn't give any specifics, so I am going to have to make some assumptions. I will assume that you are using Windows 7, and that yo are using the free Windows Live mail client that took the place of Outlook Express. Open Windows Live mail, and then click the far right-hand tab at the top that says "Accounts." Click the button on the left that looks like an @ symbol with a + sign on it. Use the resulting wizard to add a new account.If you want to delete the one already in there, find that account in the left-hand pane, and right-click on the top-level folder for that account, and click "remove account." Make sure that you don't remove the one that you just added by accident.If you are using something besides Windows Love Mail to currently get your mail, please specify what method you are using to get your mail.

I found these instructions useful for some kinds of advertising:

1. In the upper-right corner of the Windows Live Hotmail home page, click "Options" and then click "More options"
2. Under Customize your mail, click "Personal e-mail signature"
3. Delete the text or any image in the signature box, and then click "Save."

follow the following link for more information on this problem.

If you think the account has been hijacked then change your password straight away. contact the "live team" if you have further problems.

How to export e-mail accounts from old email to the new one?


If you have an email address with another company, there is no way you can link up your hotmail to it directly. You will have to take note of all of your contacts, and re-add them manually, and perhaps send mail out to all of them to let them know the address has changed.

It used to be in the past, that microsoft would allow automatic forwarding of emails, however, they have since discontinued that, so you will have to check it frequently, to make sure people "get the message", so to speak, OR

There is another method. I don't usually keep the habit of openly advocating Microsoft products (Open source opens the door for so much more possibilities), however, I have found Windows Live Mail to be quite useful in circumstances for this. you can try one of two things, which can help with it-

1.) Run both accounts in the same client. You can accomplish this in the program, by using the "add accounts" feature to add your email accounts in. this will allow you to check your email and send messages in both clients, at least for alittle while. You will need to do a bit of searching for your new email companies "pop3/SMTP or IMAP settings", to configure your accounts for usage, however.

2.)Run both accounts in the Live Mail client, and transfer your old mail over to the new account. This can only be done if the new company you are with provides IMAP settings. All you would need to do once this is accomplished, is to Drag n Drop the messages over from folder to folder. I've tried this when transferrign mail from a client's hotmail account to her gmail account (with her supervision, of course).

3.) continually forward the mail over to your new account. easiest method available, and semi-effective, if you don;t mind the "fwd"s and your own email signature being marked on every message.

There is however, no way to transfer contacts, except manually. Sorry, but there is no easy way out when migrating email accounts. The companies just don't like each other.

Hope this helps. let me know if you need additional help with my suggestions, but let me know what company you switched to first.
