Windows Live Mail Won't Go Online
I've used Windows Live Mail for about five years. For some reason now, it just won't go online. I get the following pop-up window, "You are currently working offline. Would you like to go online now?" I've clicked on every opportunity to "go online" and nothing works. As a result, none of my incoming mail will download, nor my outgoing mail upload.
Internet works fine, and the only way I can read mail is by going to hotmail's website, for example. I've shutdown and restarted Windows Live Mail, as well as having rebooted my computer many times. I've shut my DSL off and on several times.
I sometimes get the following popup, and that's why I'm posting on this forum. Does anyone have any ideas of what may be switched off?
"Windows Live Mail cannot connect to the Internet, possibly because an antivirus or firewall program won't allow it. Make sure any antivirus or firewall programs on your computer allow Windows Live Mail (wlmail.exe) to access the Internet.
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x8004108D"
I've gone through Norton 360's menus and can't find anything that may be causing the problem. Have looked at all Windows Live Mail menus to see if there's something I can check or uncheck to cause Windows Live Mail to go online. Can't find anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
