Due to Security Software
If any antivirus software is installed in your system, then for security purposes, it would prevent Windows Live Mail from receiving e-mails it suspects of having malicious content. Many security software have a firewall feature and if it is enabled, then while receiving e-mails, it would block suspected mails.
Due to Connection Error
Another common problem is due to connection error. If the Windows Live Mail is not properly connected to the Internet, then you would not be able to receive e-mails. If the e-mail account becomes corrupted, it would cause the issues in Windows Live Mail. If you are using wrong server type, then also Windows Live Mail would not receive e-mails properly.
Tips to Fix the Problem
In order to solve the problem which causes issues in Windows Live Mail while receiving the e-mail, you need to verify that the connection to the server is properly connected. You need to check the e-mail account information and verify password authentication. You need to have a secure SSL connection, in order to solve the problems in receiving e-mails.
