[FIXED] Something wrong in Live Mail

Hoi

with some emails I open in windows live mail I get the following notice:

wlmailhtml:{EB2DA2F4-583F-49CE-9837-BA03A08E0206}mid://00000093/

the number at the end is always different with each mail

it then asks me if I want to continue using scripts on the page, if I say yes or no makes no difference

So it is probably a script failure but how can I get rid of it?

Hans

install thunderbird? :D

I never liked windows live mail, seemed to be using too many internal javascript like things. Almost like it was a stripped down IE shell to a remote mail app.

I was using outlook 2007 with live mail. But decided to go back to live mail. I like them both ...

None of the Microsoft mail products can talk to mail servers properly though, even now with lookout 2007 and dead mail...

I did. If you look you'll see I suggested the installation of Mozilla Thunderbird :) Its a much nicer mail client that doesn't depend on fancy internal scripting to hilight something :)

^ what he said ^

I shuddered just at the mention of Livemal in this thread... a more unusual thread would have been "something RIGHT with livemail" surely :p

the only hope of help (really) is to skip up a level and get out of that ****ty scripty world that is... livemail - it's a thinly veiled attempt of M$ to hike email into the world of junkmail - be honest Marge

thank again maybe you're a fan, in which case me /runs

With outlook connector, you can connect to hotmail and live mail with outlook 2007 to get your email. I use it all the time on my laptop and never have an issue ..

you rarely will - people like me keep on top of mail servers to keep the microsoft maill clients chugging along nicely :)

Occasionally I'll see an error about a command failing in SMTP or POP/IMAP logs because it was sent out-of-order by a Microsoft mail client :)

Oh yeah? And how does that answer his question? He might not want to use something else, just cause you do doesn't mean others have to. You guy's are turning into those people who answer IE questions with "Use Firefox" or windows problems with "Get a mac" :laugh:

Thanks to all the great answers and tips in this thread (or is it despite of..:laugh:) I fixed the problem. I now read all mail as plain txt and the problem has gone. It appears the problem arises when there is an attachment being sent with the mail when reading it as html....

Thanks guys! Wouldn't have seen the light without your input!:)
