    I'm now running the new beta of WLM on 3 PCs, but as of Friday morning,
    synchronisation problems are occuring - new emails are arriving OK. But when
    I delete emails they are not being deleted. eg If I delete on one PC. Then
    run WLM on the other PC, the deleted emails still reappear

    This is with my hotmail account, and Windows Live Mail beta 14 on 3 XP Pro
    SP3 systems

    Have you examined the logs to see how the timings of synchronization
    on the three machines compare? I would expect some delay between
    deleting a message on the client and this taking effect at the
    server. Only if a change hasn't taken effect some hours later would
    I regard this as a fault. Or do you mean that messages you delete
    locally are never deleted at the server?

    I'm finding that emails I delete in WLM beta, are reappearing when I look at
    WLM beta (same hotmail) account on another machine, even several hours later.
    New emails are arriving fine - it's just not tidying up/removing the ones
    I'm deleting.
    This is still going on on 28 Sep.

    Anyone else having similar symptoms?

    Mike, did you by any chance verify after first noticing if a newly deleted email was visible in the Hotmail UI ?

    I've attempted to reproduce this a few times since your post earlier today without success.

    Since WLM requires a sync to update Hotmail, there may be a slight delay noticeable but logging on another machine should be
    sufficient.

    Incidentally as of 20 October - I'm still having this problem. Only logging
    onto the hotmail web site and deleting the emails is actually deleting the
    email.
