Windows live mail cannot send email


Hello Zion,

To resolve the issue you are getting in Windows Live Mail, you will need to try the following workaround:

  • You will need to go to Tools, and then click on Options.
  • After that click on the General Tab.
  • You will need to try removing the checkmark from the 'send and receive messages at start up'.
  • After that click on Apply and then choose OK to save the changes.

Also check if you can delete an unread email under Quickview. That could also help resolve the error that you are getting right now.

Hope this helps.
