OK Computer Geeks, anyone have this problem?
I have Windows 8.1 with Windows Live Mail (Windows Essentials 2012) and use Google Chrome as my IP. Also, I use Kaspersky PURE 3.0 Total Security software.
The problem is with Windows Live Mail: It frequently will not send out emails. On these occasions I get a drop-down window stating that I need to type an address (which is already there). In these instances, I go to the Control Panel, select
"Programs and Features", then right click on "Windows Essentials 2012", select "Uninstall/Change", then select "Repair all Windows Essentials Programs". Once this is done, the email with the Group address can usually be sent (about 90% of the times). I have tried editing the Group address & saving it as suggested online, but that doesn't work.
I've surfed several Windows sites for Window Essentials 2012 updates & found that Windows 8.1 does not support the POP (Post Office Protocol), instead it supports IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol). I called Comcast & they cannot use the IMAP protocol which means they can't do anything about the Windows Essentials 2012 program. They directed me to their Comcast site for emails instead which I don't like. Looks like I've gone 360°.
Have any of you folks experienced this and if so have you found a solution?
