Windows lve mail

  Andsome 12:40 05 Sep 2009

I am trying out Windows live mail. When I open it up, all new messages arrive OK. When it is already open however, I cannot see where to click to check for new messages which may be waiting on the server. What am I missing? There is no send/receive button as in Outlook Express. I have sent an e mail to MS about this apparent omission, and received an automated reply with an incident number. I saved this in My Documents. However, when I click on it to open it, the actual message flashes up for an instant and then a web page opens, and I can no longer see the incident number. Are MS deliberately trying to annoy us?

Right click at the top then click on toolbar

In my Windows LiveMail, the old Send/Receive now seems to be called "Sync"

Sorry my reply is for Windows mail.

Try right click at the top then customize toolbar

A window will open with options add or remove what you want or don't want

There is nothing to click on at the top, and no way that I can see to customes any tool bars. I still think MS are out to annoy us.

I have checked that and found CUSTOMISE, but there is nothing in there which says check for new mail

In mine there is a "send and receive" option

Are you sure that you are talking about Windows live mail. I have a send button in new mail but no where can I see a receive new mail button. I can set the program to check for new messages every so many minutes, but NO WHERE can I click on receive all as I could in Outlook express.
