    Some Accounts Don't retrieve (Windows Mail 6.0.6000)

    When I posed this situation on the Microsoft board, "they" said that maybe I have too many accounts!?

    Funny, they worked fine in OE.

    ************************************************** ***********************

    I have some eight different accounts in Win Mail.

    When I first start up WinMail, all accounts retrieve fine.

    The next time I try to retrieve the mail, the first two accounts a re bypassed -- no errors, no status indication, nothing.

    I I close WM, and start up again, then the accounts all retrieve.,

    What could cause this?

    Regards,

    See Doc, this is the only place in town I can get a straight answer! No wonder this is my home away from home!

    Remember that in the MS hosted newsgroups it is seldom a Microsoft employee that responds. A Microsoft employee will usually identify him/her self. Also, most Micrososft MVPs identify themselves. So, if that was not the case there is no telling if the responder really knows anything.

    BTW, is this Windows Mail or Windows Live Mail?

    Yea, After the first exchange, Gary VanderMolen, MS-MVP (WLMail) came on board, saying that 32 (accounts) had been the ceiling in OE, but that that hadn't been verified in WLM.

    >>

    <<

    The account issue had started in WM, but then I had all kinds of piddly stuff come up in WLM, and Greg suggested that I just delete and rebuild my WM accounts... which has seemed to work.

    I (personally) don't like using WLM, because, even though it'll use Hotmail and a couple other internet accounts I hear, I can't seem to get the fonts for the desktop any kind of bold or dark, so it's a good deal harder for me to see...

    Re: Some Accounts Don't retrieve (Windows Mail 6.0.6000)

    How do I re-install Windows Mail?

    Because it only will allow me one mail retrieval and then I have to shut down (just WM), restart it again, and then I can retrieve mail again -- once.

    Is there a way to do a "repair/re-install" or some such thing?

    I got tit guys. HP told me:

    Vista re-creates Windows mail automatically after you delete it, so all you need to do is save off i9mportant messages, and then import them after the files are re-built.

    I guess HP figured that MS wasn't able to solve the problem and chose to solve it for their users rather than wait for MS. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Yea Doc. It's some of the better tech support I've come across. I guess not all out-sourced support is bad. <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>
