  1. I'm pretty sure all your stuff like emails, calendar entries, notes etc are stored on the Windows Live server/cloud. So you can change your email client (Live mail, Thunderbird, Outlook) without losing all of your data. I went from Windows Live Mail to Outlook 2010 with no worries.
  2. outlook seems to have to be paid for,i don't use office either so not an option?
    i really liked win live but cannot get passed these recent errors & microsoft do not answer any enquiries.
  3. Yeah you have to buy Outlook. Mozilla Thunderbird is free, and I'm sure there are plenty of other email clients out there. I get a few errors similar to you though and I'm using Outlook. Might just be Live...
  4. thanx sam, have just noticed my win firewall keeps turning itself off-or something is doing that.Also checked network & not at all sure its correct.
    I wonder if this cud be the problems with live email?
  5. Yeah it could be the firewall. Make sure there is an exception for whatever email client you end up using.

    actually what was happeneing was, my firewall was being switched off all the time..
    so i really checked everything i cud think of & found my internet network was totally different, so i changed it to home network & voila all worked again.
