This is the third consecutive day I must write:
"Windows Live Mail seems to have many issues and not much support" .
Then follows the advice to switch to Thunderbird.
How can I sort WL always saying it is downloading an email? When messages are there it does download them but the error message still comes up for a seemingly phantom email.
Solved it for a day by erasing all messages on the server but now it's happening again. I'm using windows 7.
