Resolve the issue when Windows® Mail is not working
Is Windows Mail installed on your PC not working? Find out how to solve the problem.
Windows based Operating Systems are very popular because of their usability. They can be installed with very large numbers of applications and doing so would enhance the functioning of the OS. Windows Mail is a e-mail and newsgroup client that came preinstalled with newer versions of Windows OS such as Windows Vista. Windows Mail can be configured for all kinds of e-mail services including POP3 and with Windows mail, users would be able to send, receive, forward and download attachments without having to log into account using browser. Although using Windows Mail is very simple, there are some issues that might come up with the use of it. Some of the common issues that might come up with the use of Windows Mail include Windows Mail freezing, Windows Mail termination, error messages coming up with the use of the application, Windows Mail not able to send or receive mails etc. Such problems might be because of many reasons such as problems with some of the system files associated with Windows Mail, network related issues, incorrect configuration of Windows Mail or network settings, firewall preventing Windows Mail from working etc.
Following details gives users more information regarding ways to fix issues with Windows Mail:
- Check system files
- Check firewall settings
- Verify application configuration
Check system files
Issues with the use of Windows Mail might be because some of the system files associated with the application got corrupted or damaged in some way. Users are therefore advised to check the integrity of the system files on the OS using 'sfc/scannow' command. If system files are found damaged, repairing the OS with the installation disc would solve the problems and get the Windows Mail application working.
Check firewall settings
Windows based Operating Systems have a default security feature known as firewall. Firewall filters out the malicious content coming into the system and prevents the system from getting infected. If the firewall on the system is not configured properly, Windows Mail would not be able to access the network connection to function. All users having problems with the use of Windows Mail are suggested to check the firewall settings. If the firewall is found to be blocking the connection, creating an exception for Windows Mail would solve the issue.
There are many settings on Windows Mail that need to be configured by the users. If even one of these settings (such as access points) have been configured incorrectly, then the application would not work properly. Users experiencing issues with Windows Mail are therefore suggested to check the configuration of settings on Windows Mail and reconfigure them. If the issue has come up after some changes were made to the application settings, changing them back to default values would solve the issues.
