    windows live mail desktop not getting email from bellsouth servers

    My windows live mail desktop has stopped retrieving the email messages from
    my bellsouth.net server.
    This was working a day ago but when I "sync" it says no new messages but I
    know there are messages on the server.
    What could be the problem?

    It depends upon what the cause is. No error message, so anything we say is
    just a WAG.

    If you use Bellsouth web mail do you see any messages in the INBOX
    there? If they are in other folders, they won't be downloaded.

    To see more details on the Synch, enable logging To enable logging in
    Windows Live Mail select Tools, Options, Advanced, Maintenance,
    Troubleshooting. Check the box to enable and click APPLY. Run the
    Send/Receive/Synch, then click the box to uncheck and APPLY.

    POP3 enables both POP3 and SMTP logging.

    The logging information will be appended to WindowsLiveMail.log in the
    same location as the WLM Store Folder (click the STORE FOLDER button
    above Troubleshooting to see its location).

    The WindowsLiveMail.log can grow to be very large. You may want to
    rename (or delete) the current log file before starting logging in order
    to get a more manageable file size. WLM will automatically create a new
    log file when needed if one doesn't exist.

    RE: windows live mail desktop not getting email from bellsouth servers

    You know, I have the exact situation occurring on the machine of a friend of
    mine. The provider is Bellsouth.net, we're using WLM and can send but no
    longer receive any emails. The only thing I did before this occurred was
    increase the size limit on email attachments by a few mb.

    I haven't seen the error yet (if there is one) indicating why messages
    aren't being received ... so I'm clueless until I can look at things tomorrow.

    I am cross-posting this because the identical problem has occurred for
    someone just a few days ago here -
    http://social.answers.microsoft.com/...-04d3748b7bc5/ - without a solution, as far as I know.

    Thanks,

    Sherm
