I have seen this since I first posted here and looked at other posts:
For each post I read, in the upper right corner area is the text 'Rate this
Post' along with a button to [Sign In]
I click the button and nothing.
So, before I just put a question in, I went through the Windows Mail Help
and Support via Help tab at the top of the Windows Mail tool bar.
Here is what it said:
Follow these steps to sign in to Communities from Windows Mail:
Click to open Windows Mail.
In the folder pane, click Microsoft Communities.
Click the Tools menu, and then click Microsoft Communities: Sign in.
If you are subscribed to newsgroups that don't support Communities, this
option will not appear.
Now it seemed to be very clear.
I followed the steps. After clicking on 'Microsoft Communities: Sign in'
nothing else happened.
I still cannot rate a post; do not receive any messages admonishing me that
I did it wrong, or I was not signed in, nor that I did not have permission
to do such task.
Tried using the sign-in button that appears at the top of the main Windows
Mail screen, for signing in.. that did not work either.
When I do put out a post, I am reminded that if I do not sign in, the
message is not going to be treated with the same way as a message from a
signed in person would be. (sorry - do not have a copy and paste of that
message yet -- will add that shortly)
I am subscribed to this thread and can post messages as you see.
What else is needed to be signed in.
