Windows Mail - irritating problem

  AquosProblem 00:32 30 Jul 2007


Windows Mail came with my Vista package on my new desktop. Whenever, I close down Mail I get a dialogue box saying "Windows Mail has stopped working" and "Windows is checking for a solution to the problem.." If I click cancel then all is well and it disappears. If I let it run it's course then I get "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the programme and notify you if a solution is available" If I click "Close Program" then again all is well and it disappears.

Not the biggest problem in the world (just irritating) but if anyone knows of a solution it would save me at least one mouse click each time I use Mail!

Yahoo advised changing "outgoing STMP port" from 25 to 587, due to their problems with Vista and Windows Mail. You find this by going "tools/Accounts/Properties/Advanced"
