    Starts once, then nothing (Windows Live Mail 2009)

    I started using Windows Live Mail and I like the way it works. I have run into this problem on both my work computer and home computer. I can start Live Mail once, maybe twice but then it won't work again until I log off and log back on. When I say it won't work, I mean nothing happens. I click the icon and I get the hourglass for a few seconds and then it never starts. I have even tried launching the program directly, by opening explorer and clicking on wlmail.exe and still nothing happens.

    I Googled looking for an answer and it sounds like I am not the only one having this problem but I didn't see any solutions. Thanks in advance for any help.

    When WLM is not running start Task Manager and see if wlmail.exe is still running under the processes tab. If it is terminate it and try WLM again.

    That's a Roger. Once I terminated or End Process on it, it started again just fine.

    Is there a fix for that? Thanks for the help.

    Not that I know of. That sort of behavior tends to be sporadic and happens when the product in question somehow 'thinks' it is still busy do a task or waiting on a reply.
