Some sorts of attachments that are more likely to carry viruses can be blocked by Windows Live Mail (programs that can harm your computer or access your personal information). When Windows Live Mails bans an attachment, you will see the warning “Prohibited file type” in the message header. You will not be able to download or read the email attachment if this warning appears. If you’re having trouble downloading attachments in Windows Live Mail, go to the Safety Settings and adjust the settings to always accept all sorts of files. Changing this setting, however, will not unblock attachments that have already been received by Windows Live Mail.
You can ask the sender to compress or zip an attachment before sending it to allow these sorts of attachments for specific messages. Follow the instructions below to allow Windows Live Mails to download and open all sorts of attachments:
In Windows Live Mail, you must accept any type of attachment.
- After clicking Start, type “mail” into the search box.
- From the list of results, select Windows Live Mail.
- Click Junk on the Home tab, then Safety choices.
- Uncheck the Virus Protection box under the Security tab. Allow attachments that may contain a virus to not be stored or opened, and then click OK.
Turning this off puts your machine in danger of infections, therefore it’s not a good idea.
Most common errors with Windows Live Mail
When using Windows Live Mail, several customers have reported receiving repeated errors. In this post, we’ve outlined the most frequent Windows Live Mail issues, as well as a practical approach for resolving them.
- If Error 3219 appears in Windows Live Mails, it signifies that the program is unable to connect to Hotmail/Outlook or MSN servers to collect your emails. When Live Mail is set up to connect and sync mail through a secure HTTPS connection, this error appears, indicating that there is difficulty connecting to the server. Any abrupt upgrade in the servers causes Live Mail to be unable to sync across email accounts, resulting in this error. The easiest way to address this problem is to use Windows Live Mail to reconfigure the email servers.
- When you get an error code of 0x8007007A in the Windows Live Mails or Windows 10 Mail app, it signifies the program is unable to send emails. When you try to email any media attachments from OneDrive, you’ll get this error. While you may transmit photographs or albums from SkyDrive, you can’t do so from OneDrive, which results in this error. To put it another way, anytime a user tries to send or receive an email in the Windows Live Mails program, this error is issued. This problem can be solved in a variety of ways, including:
- Delete the message that’s causing the problem, then try sending another message.
- Remove your Windows Live Mail account and re-configure it.
- Send the images/photos as attachments.
- ‘Create photo email from photo attachments’ should be unchecked.
- You might be able to resolve this issue if you examine these solutions.
- After Windows 7’s support ended, the majority of customers upgraded to Windows 10. However, users of WLM on Windows 10 have reported that they are unable to access their Live Mail accounts. One of the key reasons for this is that Microsoft no longer wants people to utilize WLM. Instead, they advise users to export Windows Live Mail emails to Outlook or Office 365, which is why Windows 10 was designed to meet future needs. The best solution to these problems are as follows:
- In the compatibility mode, try running Windows Live Mail as Administrator.
- Reconfigure the Windows Live Mails account if necessary.
- Create a new WLM account and delete the old one.
- On your Windows 10 computer, try reinstalling Windows Essentials 2012.
- Windows Live Mail may now be able to run on Windows 10.
- Although many email service providers do not require authentication for outgoing emails, Windows Live Mail may demand additional authentication for outgoing emails. When you get the error number 0x800CCC0B, it means your email service provider needs authentication for both incoming and outgoing emails. Authentication may be activated manually on an account-by-account basis in Windows Live Mail.
- Error 0x800ccc0f is caused by Windows Live Mails issues, misconfigured POP settings, firewall blocking, and antivirus blocking. Using a third-party antivirus firewall or suite is usually the problem. It primarily impacts the system’s security and also monitors your system’s desktop data and browsing history. This problem can be resolved by reinstalling and fixing Windows Live Mail.
Because of its ease, many individuals continue to use Windows Live Mails. However, WLM’s frequent flaws make it difficult and difficult for consumers to utilize. We’ve gone through some of the most frequent WLM issues and offered a unique remedy for each one. We’ve also discussed an email converter program that provides an immediate option for converting EML files to PST.
