Windows Live Mail Unknown Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • My partner has been using WLM for at least a year and has been experiencing an "unknown error" sporadically during that time which always seems to happen in the process of composing a new email.

    I have tried creating a new message store location and importing the messages from the old store but the problem still occurs.

    Here is an example of the error message:
