    Is there a problem with Windows Live Mail this afternoon?

    Earlier I tried to reply to an email, but the message failed to be sent. Now
    I cannot even open the desktop client. I click on the icon, but WLM fails to
    open. Is the problem on my end or yours? Thanks

    This is strictly a volunteer group, not a hot line to Microsoft. The first
    thing I do when this sort of thing happens, is log on to the Hotmail portal
    to make sure my account is functional. You can find out right away if it is
    problem on your end or on theirs.

    In a search for Windows Live Mail support, I was sent here. I didn't expect
    the snarky reply. Maybe you should volunteer to shove it.

    Atta-boy Dave,

    Sure makes a person appreciate the other MSFT Community forums that are
    "Strictly Volunteer" but sure don't stoop to that level of rudeness.

    Sounds like someone needs an attitude adjustment.

    That's hardly a "snarky" reply... just stick around for a while ;-)

    Since WLM is a desktop program, and it won't open, then it's on your end.

    Check to see if WLM is still running by opening Task Manager (right-click on
    the Taskbar and select Start Task Manager) . On the Processes tab, see if
    wlmail.exe is still running. If it is, highlight it and click on End
    Process.

    Now try to open WLM.

    It's not on Earle's end...
    Earle is just a user, like you and me.
    MSFT had problems last night, I don't know about today.

    Re: Is there a problem with Windows Live Mail this afternoon?

    It's a trick to keep you from using the real Customer Support, and them
    having to pay employees to help you with your problem. Really, this is not
    part of Windows Live Mail support.

    You could try calling 1-800-EAT-****. Now would a real Microsoft employee
    tell you that?

    I have been getting mail just fine all day. These fellows should try
    contacting the real Windows Live Mail support. Hint--This newsgroup is not
    it.

    Thank you very much.
