Windows Live Mail messages disappear when forwarded!

by MendoPaul / September 19, 2012 3:39 AM PDT

In Win Live Mail, this morning when I forwarded an incoming message with 6 photos in it to a colleague it disappeared from my inbox and was only retreivable from within the "sent" folder in the message I forwarded it in. In effect my original mesage was lost, except for it being in my "sent" folder. Wow, difficult problem if it continues. It's happened several times lately. Is some setting wrong? Thanks.

Could it be that the option to show only unread mails in the inbox is set?

Thanks, but can't find this option anywhere in my version of Win Live Mail. Where can I find this?

The recipient ad her acct blocking attachments, then I tried to embed them in an email. Again, rejected. The good news is the sent mail can be sent back to the original email. The problem could be in your own setup or the your friends acct. Fotunately, my friend has a facebook acct, I then sent that boubnced emai thru that. It went to her phone. same thing on two other persons, I used Darrell
