I had a problem with Windows Live Mail not working and was forced to reinstall it a few days ago. Everything is now working as normal except for one thing. Any emails I receive which contain images the images are not shown. I seem to remember there was a show images button but that isn't there either.

 

Just to clarify I'm using Version 2012 (Build 16.4 3528.0331)

 

I went into Options, Safety Options, Security and made sure the checkmark was removed from, 'Block images and other external content in HTML mail.' That made no difference even after rebooting. Everything was working fine last week but since I reinstalled it I've had no images. Any idea how I can get this back to normal?

Gozoman,

 

       I'd try uninstalling and reinstalling again, making sure to restart between the uninstall and reinstall.

 

       I still have a lot of clients using WLM 2012 and even though Microsoft just ended official support for it the program still works just fine for IMAP and POP access.  If and when it starts to become security "Swiss Cheese" articles will hit the tech press.

Or... you could simply change email clients.  Thunderbird and Opera mail are two that I've used and liked.

I reinstalled it again yesterday but just did it over the top of what was there so I assume that was a bad idea. Would you suggest doing what you suggest in normal Windows or Safe Mode?

At the moment I don't want to change but thanks anyway.

If I am reinstalling software I always uninstall the existing software first.  By contrast, if I am installing the latest version of a given piece of software, unless the installation instructions explicitly state that I must manually uninstall the old version first, I do an "install over" install.

 

A lot of programs these days include an "uninstall existing version" step in their upgrade installers.

 

In the case of WLM 2012 I would completely uninstall, restart the machine, and do a fresh install.  One need not be in safe mode, you just need to be logged in using an account with administrator privilege.  You will probably have to set up your e-mail account or accounts again.

 

I really don't understand why Microsoft can't pick and stay with a single free e-mail client that they are willing to do "evolutionary support" on like they've done with Outlook.  As far as I'm concerned the new Win10 Mail App is to be avoided like the plague.

Yeah that sounds like a plan but I will need to wait until I can afford to be without the email for a while.

I did the install over the existing copy as it was just corrupted for some reason and I thought it would do a repair by replacing any missing or corrupt files. It seemed to work and everything is working fine apart from the images issue.

I don't know about the Windows 10 Mail App as I have been avoiding Windows 10 itself like the plague! The laptop I'm using at the moment was custom built by Sony but they don't make Vaio laptops anymore which I think is crazy. Anyway if I feel it's time to upgrade I might just move to Mac as I'm getting sick and tired of all the problems with Microsoft.
