Windows Live Mail hangs in the compose window

I am operating Windows Live Mail on Windows 7 Home Premium. There is no
problem with the mail box settings, the problem lies solely in the compose
window when I click to send to the Outbox the system hangs until I click OK
on the error masessage "The message could not be sent. An error has
occurred". Can anyone help me to try and resolve my problem in Windows 7, in
XP with exactly the same set up everything works perfectly.

In Tools (ALT+T), Options, Send, do you have Send Immediately checked?
If so uncheck it.

Then see if you can compose and click send. If the message gets written
to the Outbox folder without you getting the error message that says the
problem is not with the compose window but rather when WLM tries to send
the message from the Outbox to the mail server.

One possible cause of the problem is at Tools, Accounts, Mail,
Properties, General the Name field is blank.

I cannot get out of the Compose window with the message, when I click Send I
get the error message and the window hangs until I click OK in the error
message box, so nothing reaches the Outbox. I have exactly the same set up on
my XP laptop and all works perfectly.

Any further advice would be most appreciated. Thank you.

Have you tried unchecking '[ ] Always check spelling before sending' at Tools->Options...->Spelling [tab]?

Does Action Center have a report on the problem?

Control Panel->Action Center->Maintenance->View reliability history->View all problem reports

What AntiVirus are you using, and is it set to scan incoming/outgoing e-mail?

I am using MSE as my anti-virus programme and it is on default settings.

In the Action Centre WLM is mentioned but only in the past 2 days here is a
copy of the report but it means nothing to me:-

Problem signature
Problem Event Name: PCA2
Problem Signature 01: wlmail.exe
Problem Signature 02: 14.0.8089.726
Problem Signature 03: Windows Live Mail
Problem Signature 04: Windows Live Mail
Problem Signature 05: Microsoft Corporation
Problem Signature 06: 200
Problem Signature 07: -1
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.768.3
Locale ID: 2057

Extra information about the problem
Bucket ID: 692190374

I am sure this means something to you. Thanks again.

MSE doesn't scan email in or out.
You might try to temporarily exclude wlmail.exe in MSE to prevent it being scanned...
- Though I suspect, something else is in play that is causing WLM(wlmail.exe) to crash

Have you tried repairing WLM(Programs and Features/Windows Live Essentials - double click to start the installer, when prompted
choose the 'Repair Option')

>Hello Winston
I excluded wlmail.exe in MSE but unfortunately no difference. I had tried
repairing before but I tried again after your comment, again unfortunately no
change in WLM. Your help is much appreciated and I would be most pleased to
hear of anything else you could suggest to solve this problem.

Thank you.

@winston & Mike Santovec: There's much more to this story. See
http://social.answers.microsoft.com...k/thread/03e3f9d8-493f-4766-8eec-30c9521f9c3c

For example:

<QP>
I followed your instructions for the Norton Removal Tool and all ____
let loose on my computer after rebooting. I use Explorer and Firefox

Follow-up: We've gotten Wisloki's "Norton vs MSE" issues cleared up
now so I've suggested that he might fix his problem by backing-up his
WLMail data then uninstalling/reinstalling WLMail. See

Thank you Robear once again. After the Norton removal I did indeed do a
clean uninstall and reinstalled WLM and still the problem continued.

Another thought I can only download WLM build 14.0.8089.0726 what about
trying a previous build? If so could anyone give me a link to downlaod it.

Incidently where on Windows 7 are the WLM mails stored, I could find them in
XP but I am having difficulty in W7.

Any help form anyone would be most appreciated.

Older WLM versions are not available for download. The location of your
store folder can be found at Tools - Options - Advanced tab - Maintenance
button - Store Folder button.

WLMail's Message Store is a directory named 'Windows Live Mail'. The path to the Message Store, in its default location involves a hidden folder, so ensure that '(o) Show hidden files, folders, and drives' is checked under Folder Options in Windows Explorer.

The default Message Store location for W7 is:
%localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail
(C:\Users\[UserName]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail)

Other software could be interfering with WLMail's operation, so try running WLMail after a Clean Boot* (ensuring that your security software is not protecting itself from having its processes/services disabled). See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/331796

Booting into Safe Mode with Networking (F8 at Startup->...) and trying to run WLMail is another diagnostic option.

A corrupt Windows System File is another possibility, so try running 'System File Checker' from an elevated Command Prompt (sfc /scannow). See: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/66978-system-files-sfc-command.html

Also scan your hard drive for errors (My computer->right-click drive->Properties->Tools [tab]->Error-checking [section]->Check now... [button]->'Automatically fix file system errors' [check]->Start [button]->Schedule disk check [button]->Restart computer.

For a look at the Chkdsk log in W7, open Event Viewer:

Start->Run->eventvwr [type]->OK->Windows Logs->Application->Information [Level]->Wininit [Source]->1001 [Event ID]

(It is normal for Chkdsk to remove unused index entries and unused security descriptors every time it is run. These do not indicate a problem with the file system).

If Chkdsk has found and fixed errors, it is a good idea to run Chkdsk again - as many times as needed until no problems are found, and then reboot the System yet again, without scheduling a Chkdsk.

After all that, a 'Complete' Uninstall/Reinstall of WLMail might solve the problem... See http://liveunplugged.spaces.live.com/Blog/cns!F92775FC46A390CA!226.entry
