Set Email Address In Live


How do i set an email address in windows live? Every time i go to windows live forum and do a post it channels me into select windows -> win 7 etc etc.

I don't really understand how i get to ask a question about windows live. I set up windows live with an id that was like an email address . @Me.com, but wasn't really one, just an id i fancied, cos the software didn't ask for an email address. Now every where i go to do with windows live (eg this forum) it says ill get informed of things. How will it inform me if it doesn't have my email address, doesn't it know i didn't give it an email address?

I ve looked all around my profile and what ever other items i can go to under windows live when im logged in and i cant find anywhere it allows me to provide an email addr'. I am really confused about all these windows live items. I cant find a no advertising style page that just explains very simply what it actually is!

Msn Email Address Or Password Incorrect

Just purchased a new computer that has windows 7 home premium 64 bit installed on it. I use msn as my home page. Every time i start up or reboot the system and try to get to my home page it asks me to put in my email address and password (despite the fact that i previously, and each subsequent time, checked the box to remember my email address and password). Then, to add insult to injury, it keeps on coming back with the error that email address or password is incorrect. I try a few more times with same results and then all of a sudden it works one time. Where do i go to fix this total annoyance?

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 Email

For the last month or so, i believe you did an update or change to live.com, it is very frustrating. It loads, reloads, reloads, clicks and clacks before i can get started addressing my emails or writing an email. The send to space will not take a name unless i mouse click it. When i open live.com email i have to wait while it loads and reloads about four times. Very frustrating. I loved it before, but can't have an email account that wastes my time as i use it for work. Is this only my problem or a problem with the new update?

Live Email Vs Outlook

I used to use outlook to get my mail, now windows 7 doesn't work with it. I did the steps to add my email account to their windows live email and set my password. With regular outlook, when i would click the icon, the small password box would first open and the email window would not appear until the password was entered. When i click on this live icon, the email window opens (the preview window pane) and then the small password window appears in the middle of it.

Granted, you can't actually click on the folders in the mail window without entering the password, but you can see the messages waiting in the preview pane! What's the use of needing a password if people can still kind of see some of your emails? How do you get it to work more like outlook, where the email window will not open at all until the password is entered? Plus, nothing from my email account has come over to this live account (i.e. My contacts or the messages in my folders, including any new messages). I thought it was supposed to transfer the email account when i went through the add an account steps?

Logging Onto Live Email

I am referred here by the windows live help forum. "After reviewing your concern i have determined that you need to get in touch with the support group of your windows operating system. I suggest that you contact the technical support group of windows 7. They are the appropriate team to address your inquiry. "  The problem is stated below.

I recently installed windows 7 on two of my three computers. When attempting to log into my windows live email account on one of the computers it does not recognize my password. My id and password are recognized when i log in on my other two computers, one with windows 7 and the other with xp and also when i log in from my work site. I am able to access normal internet through explorer 8 without any difficulty.

In my attempts to solve the problem one of the messages i have come across is "default mail client is not properly installed"  the solution offered does not seem to fit the windows 7 format. It tells me to go to tools-internet options-programs and change a setting that does not exist on windows 7.

Cannot Send Email With Live Mail

I have a dell 1735 laptop with a windows 7 premium os. Windows live mail is my email client. After i open wlm i receive email to my inbox without a problem, but when i click on new mail message the message window opens for about 3 seconds and then fades with a pop-up appearing that reads " a problem has caused windows live mail to stop working. "I went to the add/remove programs and clicked repair, that didn't help. I uninstalled and re-installed the application, that did not help.

Note: i uninstalled with regedit i know the settings are correct because i use the same settings in my windows xp outlook express, on my desktop. I also went to msconfig and switched to a diagnostic start-up, that didn't help. One thing i noticed is everytime i close wlm a dialog box asks me if i want to recover more disk space, i usually click yes. I have 138 gigs of free space on 320 gig drive. Lso, outlook 2002 is installed on the laptop, but it is not the default email client. Does anyone have any idea as to what can be the problem?

Cannot Email Photos In Live Mail

I've just had a new pc with windows 7 and windows live mail, and am still getting used to it, so very sorry if i am just being plain thick! I can send and receive regular emails fine, unless i add an photo - then, they are sent but not received. I have a couple of email addresses and have been trying all day to send myself a photo from one to the other, but the only way it worked was by
Sending it from my hotmail address online (not from windows live mail).

Do you have any ideas what i'm doing wrong? I am using the 'add photos' button then selecting a photo from my pictures, clicking 'add' and 'done' and everything seems to work ok, but non of the emails have arrived back.

Sending Pics Via Email Live

I have had my computer since feb. It is a gateway, 8gb, 1tb and was working very nicely up until about a month ago when i started having problems sending pics via e-mail/through windows live. I pull up the pic to send and the windows live box comes up but when i go to send a little box comes up, telling me that there are initializing errors with my hotmail acct inbox, outbox, etc. With a red circle by each remark. It also gives me an error id ox80070057 and suggested i go to support live.com to find out what that meant. I did and it said something was stuck in my outbox.

Well, i deleted all but 28 e-mails deleted every pic off my live profile, deleted all cookies and temp files, deleted some pictures, deleted programs that w don't use and/or don't need- oh. This
Is also because in the windows live mailbox that comes up to send the pics, behind the other box i get a message saying check your computer for low disk space and or low memory.

I don't have anything on my computer other than my pics, a few(4)) documents(small) & music. I'm wondering what is causing this and how can i fix it? Could it be all the songs my boyfriend has downloaded? I think it might be. He did delete 2 play-lists, but i just looked and there are like 30 hours worth of music on here and almost 430 songs that i can find. I told him i think those songs are causing the problem, but i could b wrong.

Specific Contact Lists Live Email

Before upgrading to windows 7, there are several functions i had that are now not functional:

1) contact lists - i used to have a "main" contact list, special contact lists i.e. , "Historical", "family" and i moved email ids into the special contact folders/lists and they were deleted/removed from the "main" list. Now, i can create the special folders, and can move email id's into the special lists, but the email id in the main contact list remains - now in two places, not one. If i delete the email id from any of the contact folder/lists, it's deleted from all of the contact lists. Surely, the techno twits (term of endearment) didn't screw up a great function of email contact folders/lists?

2) what's with the faded look of emails now? You don't have any old *** like me who find this hard to read/see? And, my husband is legally blind and even with his enhancer the fadeout on the emails is almost impossible to "see". What were you thinking? If you want to distinguish read from non-read, use a different color or anything else. Where's the option for me to get rid of this "seeing insensitive" faded/fadeout look that came with windows 7? Again, what were you thinking?

Start Live Mail Without Importing Any Email

How to start windows live mail without importing any email? I have just downloaded windows live mail for the purposes of creating some screenshots for a service i am providing. I just want to run the program, without importing any of my old email out of outlook (which takes up many gb's), however windows live mail seems to insist on importing all of my old mail when i start it.

As my old mail folders are so large, windows live mail basically just freezes, and there is nothing i can do except close it using the task manager. Is there some way to start windows live mail without it insisting on importing old email?By the way, i really think windows should come with the old windows mail, which just is a far superior email product to windows live mail in my opinion.

How Do Delete Email Account From Win Live Mail In Win 7 ?

I have windows 7 on my laptop and found out it could help me organize my hotmail account - but when i opened windows live mail, it suddenly had our family email account on it and began downloading email. I only want our family email account to appear and work on our desktop (which has xp and outlook express). If i delete that pop account from windows live mail, will it only apply to the settings on my laptop and therefore remain intact on our desktop?

Unable To Set Headset As Default

Unable to set headset as default default but works when using the 'test' option in . In the past i was able to switch between default audio devices on my computer, from the headset to the speakers. However, about a week ago, i could no longer do so. I realized this problem when i tried to switch from speakers to a headset as a default device (both speakers and headset are connected).

In the playback options, i right clicked the corresponding device (my 2-c-media usb headphone set) and clicked on "set as default device". However, the icon did not change from the phone-shaped icon into the check-mark icon. I proceeded to check if my device was working properly by clicking on "test" instead of "set as default device".

I was able to perfectly hear the test sound through the headphone set, but i am still unable to set it as my default device. I game a lot so i usually set my headset as the default device to prevent noise pollution in my house. I am using a windows 7 64-bit. Home premium.

Cannot Set A Paging File Size

The paging file wont set on the main drive (c:). I get a dialogue box on start up saying that it needs to be set. Each time i try to set it either manually or clicking on 'manage automatically' it wont set and i get the same message on each reboot. It doesn't matter what option i set it always comes back to "no page file" after i restart. This is a new windows 7 install on a new hp desktop. I noticed that several people have posted having the same problem, any ideas? I have more than enough disk space. And i'm using the suggested size.

All Program Icons Are Set To Spreadsheet

My baby sister recently phoned me with a pretty serious problem and seeing as how in the family im the tech dude i found myself at a loss with her error.
 
The error is as follows: all of the programs on her pc try to open in spreadsheet, either in the start menu or the desktop. She told me that when she changes the default starting it changes all of them to the same and certain programs cannot be changed at all.
 
Is there a way to fix this without a major overhaul being done? As i have to do it via phone and she isn't that great with technology.

How To Undo Set Programs Associations?

I just got a new computer and installed itunes onto it. I started to try and attempt to move my library from another computer to my new one when itunes asked me to set associations for it. I didn't understand what i was doing and i just clicked select all and went on my way. Now, my computer's screen goes bright to dark and black and in intermittent patterns. I can't change it back and i'm worried it's compromised my computer. I don't understand what's happening other than it's saying that it's due to a program called dcpsysmgr from dell inc. Can someone please explain to me what's going on and how to fix it!

Accidentally Set Same Default Program

I was trying to open dell webcam central because it wasn't working. I right click and picked open with, then pick default opener. I did not notice that the box that says something along the lines of "make default for all programs" was checked. Now any time i try to open any program it opens the webcam. I have tried doing system restore, but received an error message concerning a file problem. It said to try turning off my antivirus, which i did and it still didn't work. I've tried to go back and select the default program for each program, but it doesn't change anything.

Unable To Set Change Screen Resolution

I had reason to reinstall my win 7 recently. Since re-installation i haven't been able to set the screen resolution to 1600x1200 despite the fact that it set to it no problem before the reinstall. If i try changing it using the "screen resolution" in appearance/display it reports that "windows could not change your display to this resolution. Try another resolution. " If i try and force it in the advance settings, despite selecting 1600x1200 it sets it to 1024x768. It also in both cases seems to set the monitor to 59hz rather than 60 or 75.

I've tried uninstalling the gfx driver (ati radeon 4800 series) but the problem still occurs. I've also unplugged the second display and am just using the primary one to try and get this sorted. I know the resolution does work with my pc and monitor and win7 as it was fine before the re-install and i use this resolution for older games that don't support wide screen gfx modes.

Computer Has Duplicate Set Of Program Files

New gateway computer/all in one/64bit/more space than i've ever had and operates okay. The computer files reflect "program files" and then "program files (86)". Many appear to be duplicates. If i merge these files, will it adversely affect the performance of the computer? Can some of the files in the "program files" that are the exact same files as are in "program files (86)" be deleted or would that automatically be done with a drag and drop manuever? I'm really confused. I did ask gateway, but they would not answer the question and just referred me to the manual. It does not address this issue. Can anyone out there help me with this intriguing but irritating mystery?
