email-windows7,hotmail-won't open mailboxes not inmail

by mariparker / December 3, 2012 2:50 AM PST

When I open my inbox things work ok. When I try to open any other mail box (ie: junk mail, deleted, or personal boxes from family, like my daughter's) it will open the box long enough for you to see there is mail but than closes it and goes back to the genral inbox. Never allowing you to act on the mail in the box you were trying to open. When I go to my husbands computer I can get in no problem but my computer won;t let me. He has Vista not 7.

Is this with a Web Browser?

If so, try it with the Chrome Web Browser next.

I do not think it is a brower? I am just using my e-mail account which is: msn hotmail and the reader is outlook I am told. Don't know enough to give you any real indepth information.

Outlook has some dozen versions.

We know that there is no Outlook Express on 7 so I can rule that out.

Sorry that I can't guess what version but it matters.

Look at the title bar
by wpgwpg / December 3, 2012 3:33 AM PST

When you first get into your email, what does it say on the title bar? The title bar is on the very top of your email window. E.g. mine says "Unread messages - Windows Live Mail". What does yours say? If we're going to help you, we really need to know that.
