I am using Windows 7 together with Windows Live email, which has been working ok until of late.My internet provider is Yahoo and emails in there are ok, but I prefer Windows Live email however this will not work when downloading emails as an error message comes up saying the server is in error and one has to reapetedly click on receive emails until they are all downloaded,surely Windows email should work no matter who your provder is can someone enlight me as to why BT Yahoo fails with Windows live emails.

Have tried all but it seems Windows Live will NOT work correctly with BT Yahoo Mail, I have Norton and they say it is nothing to do Anti Virus, I wonder if anyone else has this annoying problem ?

I keep having the same problem (intermittently) for the past few weeks, using, and from posts on other magazine forums it seems to be affecting quite a number of users. Yesterday the error messages popped up - 0x80048820 for my Hotmail account, and 0x800CCC0D for my btinternet account, today Windows Live Mail is working normally - how long for remains to be seen!

Microsoft released a new version 16.4.3505 of Live Mail yesterday - you can download this from - lets hope that this solves the problem! Whilst you are on the filehippo site download their Update Checker and run this regularly to see if any of your other programmes need updating.

New version did not solve the problem! When I signed on to Live Mail early this morning it was OK - all my messages downloaded in one go. Two hours later when I signed on again the first message downloaded, then the error message window appeared and I had to click on send/receive to get the second message (there were only two).When I run the BT Desktop Help programme it tells me that my BT internet email is set up OK and that any problems must be with another email programme, such as Hotmail.
