Windows Live Mail on 64 bit

I am having a problem with Windows Live Mail on my lap top with the 64 bit version of win 7. It constantly does not download my email messages. It worked fine until a short time ago. There is no problem on my desktop which has the 32 bit version.

I have to go into my mail account with BTYahoo to see them. No satisfactory.

If I force a Send and Receive then I get the box to check my password etc, other than than No.

As I said it did work fine and does when it feels like it.

Try refreshing by re-entering all the account details. First delete the existing details, close and finish. Then open account up again and enter the details.

apparently the latest version of Windows Live Mail has bugs so if you have that then reverting back to a previous version may fix it. See this other thread
