Solved Problem with windows Live Mail groups

September 3, 2016 at 12:38:53
Specs: Windows 10, Intel i5 3.2GHz 8.0Bg
I have had this "group" (category) issue for some months so last night I reconstructed from scratch several of my groups. I sent a test email to each, with the names (within the groups) in the bcc list. I checked my "sent" items and was pleasantly surprised that the email went to all of the intended recipients. Indeed, some even sent acknowledgements!

Today I sent emails to exactly the same groups and on checking my "sent" box, one went to 3 (out of 42), one to 2 (out of 28) and one to 1 person (out of 44).

There is clearly still an issue. I am using Version 16.4.3528.0331 of WLM 2012. I have run the "Repair" Windows Live Essentials and noted that KB 3093594 has been withdrawn so couldn't try that route.

Help, please!

Threads on the official Microsoft Community forums which may help:

And on another forum the problem appears to be caused by a recent update to WLM:

I strongly suggest you switch to another email service (perhaps the one provided by your ISP) if you cannot get it fixed.

I have never used a free email service as they rarely get fixed when a problem arises (there's no incentive to fix it if it's free).

I use my ISP's own email service which is provided as part of my monthly internet subscription. In the rare event of a problem with it they fix it quickly because if they don't we are entitled to compensation. You don't get that with free email.

Thanks for the links. I went to the very end (35 pages) of the first link and have tried the workaround clicking on the + sign next to the list having clicked on the "bcc" box.

Seems to work but a bit more time consuming!
