Windows 7 64bit, BT broadband, and Windows Live Mail timeout problem.
POP3 server has not responded in 60 seconds, would you like etc etc. Increased 60secs to 420 no difference. BT say it is a Windows Live Mail issue. I cannot find a way to repair Windows Live Mail. I have trawled Microsoft without finding answer. Any help would be appreciated. Cannot send or receive emails.
Thank you Woolwell. Yes WLM has always worked OK until a couple of days ago. You may be right, but if the server does has a problem would not users be aware of it? I took the cowards way out in the end and did a system restore to 5 days ago which appears to have "solved it". I have posted another thread asking for advice about the security risks of Facebook which my wife uses on her email account. Someone suggested a message is stuck in the system and cannot get enough time to download. I wondered if careless use of Facebook might produce a monster message which chokes the server or Live Mail.
Thank you also Northumbria61. I already did a repair of WLM 2011 but it had no effect.
Thanks rdave13. my nerves won't stretch to another go at WLM. I am an Outlook user now!! What I would appreciate is advice on the existing WLM which I am no longer using. The inbox is accepting emails and probably will do so to the end of time. Should I delete WLM altogether to stop this, or just delete the Inbox folder in WLM?
