I am on windows 7. chrome does not load live mail properly. all i get is a basic display, not the graphical one I am used to and cannot load any individual emails. Does anyone know a reason for this?

I believe you have to use Internet Explorer for Windows Live Mail to load properly.

Chrome (and Firefox) lacks some of the components which Live Mail requires.

It used to load properly in Chrome, but just recently Microsoft has updated the Windows Live Mail website which has made it necessary to use Internet Explorer.

Thanks Phil.
I tried that and this is the story so far.... before asking on here, I loaded IE and got the message 'you will need to update IE to display Outlook'. Did this, rebooted and Comodo did not like some of the updates and autoblocked. Eventually sorted IE and logged into Outlook only to find that the links in the emails would not load properly, got my lump hammer and resisted the urge.
Went back on to Chrome and loaded live mail properly, opened links automatically in a new tab and am a happy bunny. Till next time.
Now am unsure whether its Google Chrome, my ISP (EE) or just microsoft which is messing with my head and PC.
Like I said, thanks for the reply but for now it seems to have sorted itself. Maybe do it simply and change email address to Gmail, at least I have no probs with that.

There is no 'best answer', as Phil was the only person to offer assistance, I sincerely thank you for that Phil. Unfortunately, in this particular case the info received was inaccurate and apart from occasional recurrences seems to have sorted itself, for now at least. It is possible that my settings concerning access to my pc by http may be causing partial loading of the Outlook program. Further investigation is required and ongoing.
