Live Mail - Your Contacts Can't Be Saved Right Now


There are a number of us using windows live mail who encounter the message " "your contacts can't be saved right now. Please try again later. ", On a regular basis as we attempt to update our contacts lists. I find no good answers to this issue in any forum i have contacted. I am a computer instructor
At the local senior center, and receive this inquiry from a number of my students. Not receiving a solution is frustrating a number of microsoft's customers.

Organize Contacts In Live Mail

How can i organize my contacts in windows live mail? I am moving from xp outlook express to windows 7 windows live mail and i cannot see any way to organize my contacts into different folders like i have in oe. I have folders for different "classes" of contacts - friends, relatives, business colleagues, etc etc. When i send an email it is almost always going to a subset of one of these classes so i click on "to" and select the folder, then scan thorough it and drag the appropriate contacts to "to", "cc", or "bcc". I need to see them all to remind myself which ones i want to sent to - i don't always have the names at hand.

It seems that with wlm i must browse through all my 200 or so contacts for each email! As you might imagine, this makes wlm all but unusable. I know i can create groups but that is for sending a message to all the members of a group. I rarely do that.

Please let me know if i am wrong about this. If it really is as i have described, is this seen as a problem and is it being worked on and will there be a solution within a few months? If not, i shall have to start a search for another mail client.

Unable To Select Contacts Within Live Mail

Original title: email contacts when i'm sending new email or when i reply to someone, i put my cursor into the 'to:' position, open the 'contacts' list, highlight the addressee i want, but nothing happens. I've tried several different ways of getting the addresses into the 'to:' box, and again, nothing happens. I'm at my wits end. I've searched everywhere in 'help' and couldn't find an answer.

So now, i finally found this online help with a real person. I'm hoping there is an answer to this problem. And, while i've got your attention, (i hope - lol), i have one more question. After opening ie, and then open another website, on top of ie, when i close the website, by clicking the large red "x" in upper right corner, it closes out the website and ie. I  then have to reopen ie. Is there a way i can close out a website without closing out theie?

Desktop Shortcut To Contacts In Live Mail

My new replacement computer came with windows 7 and windows live mail installed as my e-mail client. I have been using it and like it. I have also been placing my contacts in the live mail contacts folder within that program. Since the folder allows other information in addition to e-mail, i would like to use it as my default/main contacts folder/only contacts folder, but i want to have a shortcut on the desktop to access the full file of contacts directly without opening the full e-mail program. I have tried unsuccessfully to drag a copy onto the desktop, locate the program in live mail and create the shortcut to a file that will open the contacts list.

I have also noted/found a contacts file under c/users/chick that looks like and contains the same information about a contact ( it has the same user face) identical to the contacts in the windows live mail folder but does not contain the contacts info that i have already made in the live mail program and apparently is not the same folder. How can i create a shortcut on my desktop that will open just the contacts folder in the windows live mail program? I might also ask the same question about the calendar in windows live mail.

Importing Contacts From Outlook Express To Live Mail

I'm replacing my old xp pc with a new win 7 pc. Anyone know how to import contact lists from separate oe email identities into windows live mail without the contacts getting combined together? I have a personal and business email address, and like to keep contacts separate. I tried separate email user accounts with different passwords, but the contacts still combine. I assume a separate login account on the pc will let me run two separate wlm applications, but that a big hassle.

Importing Outlook Express Address To Live Mail Contacts

I am upgrading to a new computer. I ran the transfer program but the address book did not come over correctly. All the address appear to be there, but i had them in several different folders for organization. The folders did not transfer over. I have tried to export from the old computer and import to the new one. I have tried to export as a csv file and import, but the same thing happens. All the addresses show up, but the sub-folders do not. Is there a way to get the subfolders to transfer over?

Live Id For Calendars & Contacts

We currently use windows live mail on our 2 pcs. We have hotmail accounts for my wife, son and me and are able to see/synchronize our live mail calendars, contacts, emails, etc, from either pc. However we can only view our calendars and contacts if we are signed into live mail with our son's hotmail/windows live id. When i sign in with my wife's id or my id we are unable to view the calendars nor contacts. Is there some way we change it so that we can see the calendars and contacts from either my wife's or my ids instead of our son's?

Importing Outlook Express 6 Mail Into Live Mail

This has been addressed many times before, but i'm hitting errors each time i try to perform an import. I've pointed win7's live mail in the direction of a perfectly-good folder contain both xp's outlook express 6 *. Dbx files, and have imported these files into outlook and exported them to a *. Pst file (into the same folder).

When attempting either import i'm receiving the same message: "no messages can be found in this folder or another application is using the files".considering the process is so simple i can't work out what i'm doing wrong.

Live Mail And Mail.west.cox.net

I am an 69 year senior citizen and when i try to use windows live mail it doesn't recognize my webmail password saying it is invalid.

On my windows xp laptop i used outlook express through my gmx account. My computer crashed so i bought a new one with windows 7. Since oultook express was no longer available i used windows live and imported all my folders and emails and synced to my gmx account.

Live Mail - Only Get Mail As Administrator

I have a hp desktop that came with vista and was upgraded to windows 7. I had a hard job getting any windows live mail. I can only get mail if i log in as an administrator. I think it has something to do with permissions and parent permissions and a few other things i don't understand. I have tried to change a few settings in the properties box and a couple of them have told me if i continue with the change i fooled with i would never see e-mail again. If i just try to start it normally it says it is configuring mail and just disappears. The only thing it really screws up is that i can't send articles and papers via e-mail.

Live Mail

I have a desktop and a laptop that are both running windows 7 home premium. I thought i would try using windows live mail and i really like. The only problem i have is that i want to be able to access my emails on both computers. How do i do this? I want to be able to create a 'mirror' of my desktop one. I'm using hotmail. And is there a way to stop the emails from getting deleted from the hotmail server? So i can still go onto hotmail.com and see my emails? If i haven't made it clear, please ask me for more information.

Live Mail Gripe

Have upgraded to live mail withy w7 and find one thing very annoying. I use mailwasher to screen my email before i bring it into the computer. I set live mail to not check automatically because that's what mailwasher does. After a period of time live mail checks anyway. It also always checks when it comes out of hibernation. When i asked ms tech support about why it does that, i was told it was built into live mail. Really?

Why should ms decide whether i want to check mail automatically and why do they have the checkbox to turn it off if some software writer thinks i should do it even if i don't wnat to? Does anyone know of a work around or way to turn this off permanently?

Live Mail Signatures

I have set up live mail with a number of e-mail accounts. Each account has its own signature stating the address of the individual e-mail account and the url of my website. All of the signatures show up in the 'insert > signature' option and the correct signature for the e-mail account can be inserted into the e-mail body.

If i choose the 'add signatures to all outgoing e-mails' in 'tools > options > signatures', a new e-mail will open with the default e-mail address signature (as expected). However, clicking the 'from' button in order to choose a different account from which to send the e-mail doesn't change the signature. Should it?

Live Mail Problem

Following my problems with windows live mail i have again used windows installer cleanup (msicuu2) to remove all live references from my pc. After doing so i ran iolo system mechanic to cleanup all registry [restarted]. Following restarting system going to update and downloading windows live essentials from the offered list i only want mail which so far has never worked. Do i have to tick any of the other applications from the list below for mail to run successfully on my system?.

My system is currently completely live free using (msicuu2). Before i spend anymore time trying to use windows live mail could anyone please advise. I have 2 other systems running the same operating system with no problem using mail, however this is my main pc which i would like to manage my mail on.

Messenger
Mail
Photo gallery
Movie maker
Toolbar
Writer
Family safety
Microsoft office outlook
Microsoft office live ad.
Silverlight

A point which may or may not be relevant is up-date (kb953297) will not install plus if i right click "my computer" and choose 'manage' nothing will happen

Live Mail Not Readable

I have been working with windows 7 review candidate and just recently upgraded to windows 7 premium edition via upgrade from vista. I had been using windows live mail. Once the upgrade was complete my mail appeared to work properly however, i am unable to open mail that was received prior to the upgrade, i am getting a message that "message cannot be found. The contents of this message cannot be found".

However all of the mail that been received after the upgrade is readable. How can i read the mail that was received earlier. Is there someway to recover these emails as they do appear in my "in-box" folder.

Live Mail Problems

I recently bought lenovo g 460 and windows 7 and downloaded windows live mail. I had been using outlook express 6 / windows xp on my old computer. I imported my old mails into windows live mail.
I noted following problems:

1) some folder names in windows live mail were changed automatically and not same as outlook express 6.

2) for some old outlook express 6 imported emails, when the emails on the preview pane and reading pane are different and the problem remains the same on clicking the preview pane. Simply, while i see an email dated 10 march 2010 from mr x with subject a but on reading pane, it is dated 7 jan 2010 from mr y with subject y. As such, i have lost few important emails.

3) to my surprise the same problem persists for new emails received on windows live 7. Temporarily, for new emails i have solved the problem by forwarding all emails to a web-based mail. But there must be a solution.

Problems With Live Mail

I am running windows live mail under windows 7 professional to access my aol email accounts, which are on an imap basis. I am using a brand new laptop that has a 1tb hard drive and 8gb of ram, so size and speed are not an issue. The first annoying problem i have is that every time i close out mail, i get a message saying it is purging folders. Five seconds later i get a an error message saying the server has disconnected, so the job did not complete. I then need to close those windows.

Secondly, when i am replying to messages, it sometimes takes 5 to 10 seconds or more for the wheel to stop spinning. If there was an attachment to the original email, the message i am sending does not disappear, even after it is sent, which makes me wonder if it has been sent. It also takes an excessively long time to delete messages.

I have used several other email programs in recent years, including outlook express and have never encountered any problems using the same aol accounts and format. Are there any setting changes i need to make, or are these problems known glitches between windows live mail and an aol imap account?

Live Mail Is Not Responding

Recently windows live mail has stopped responding. I am running windows 7. I installed windows live essentials and the mail programme has been running ok for a couple of months. Suddenly it has stopped working. It goes through the sign-on page and displays the main application interface, but the hourglass icon is displayed and i cannot access any option. The title banner says programme not responding and eventually i have to force close it. While i have it open i seem unable to use internet explorer either. Whilst this persists i cannot access any of my stored emails or my local calendar or contacts. It affects all users on my pc in the same way.

Cannot Re-install Live Mail

After windows live mail said it could not open the data base because it had moved (i had not moved it) i thought i would fix the problem by uninstalling it, then reinstalling it. What a pain! The installer for windows live says i already have mail installed and there is no option to reinstall.

I have now deleted all files that i can find relating to win live but the installer still says i have all the programs related to win live installed, i have done registry scans, virus checks, spyware checks etc. & Definitely have a clean machine. Clearly there is still some remnant of the program that tells the installer that the program is installed.

This is ridiculous, i have wasted a whole day trying to fix this problem & have as a consequence lost a lot of very important emails, & have had to download another email client so i can get emails. I want my live mail back! What do i have to do to clear the remnant file that is causing the problem?

If i want to send a mail to a friend (part of group friends) then i can't find immediately the address. With outlook express, this was possible. What can i do to realize the same like before ?

Is there a way to have windows live (which i don't understand) and keep my gmail or ie settings for mail?  I'm confused bec sometimes windows live email box shows up and then when i go to gmail, it is normal gmail box. I want to email from internet and mail, the same, gmail. Sorry i'm confusing. I don't know why i have to have two email systems. I love just gmail.

Live Mail Receive Issue

I have just set up windows live mail, on my laptop, using the same email address that i use for my home computer. I have sent an email to the home computer which has two accounts, . The laptop will send out to my husband mail address on the home computer, and receives back from that. But when he sends one back out to me my home computer will not receive it. I also sent mail to an other account, the reply was received on my home computer, but not on the laptop. If i send an email from the laptop to myself it will come back to the laptop and not to the home computer. The home computer is run off vista and laptop windows 7.

Error Code With Live Mail

I am getting this error code with windows live mail on my new netbook, but only on outgoing messages, i am receiving incoming fine. I have checked the settings for the outgoing mail smpt server, and the other account settings. They are exactly the same as my other laptop. I have tried googling for the answer, but they just suggest a registry cleaner called reg edit (i'm a bit suspicious of this)
An unknown error has occurred.
