Am running win live mail in vista. was working fine, but all of a sudden keeps prompting me for username & password when retreiving emails from the server? someone suggested there might be a conflict with my anti-virus and that an update might have affected the settings? any advice how i can prevent this from happening?? thks Mike
As Windows Live Mail is part of Windows Live Essentials go to Programs & Features via Control panel and select uninstall/ change. Follow instructions and select repair. Note that Windows Live Mail can also be used as a Web Mail system via Windows Live Messenger. Worth downloading all to do with Windows Live Essentials if you want something like Outlook Express and a bit more. Either in or out seems to be the best choice.
If you also use another e-mail provider make sure you have Windows Live mail set as the default. You may have to sign in once more but that may fix it. I had the same problem a fortnight ago as I have 2 Windows live mail accounts. And for some reason I now get both when I just open the one account. It actually is quite useful now just opening the one and having both show.
