Why can't I see my mail folders in WLMDB? (Inbox, Sent, etc.)

    For some reason in the Windows Live Mail Desktop Beta I cannot see my folders
    in the left pane. I have no way of clicking on my inbox, sent messages etc.
    Is this a known bug, or can I do something so that I can do them. It's pretty
    useless if I can't navigate the folders.

  2. Try this:

    If that is the problem, open the registry to this key with the Mail Desktop
    Beta program closed:

    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-2592889828-4208865303-1639956936-1006\Software\Microsoft\Windows
    Live Mail Desktop Beta <note the GUID may differ, but is a big, long
    number>

    Look in the right hand column for "Tree" and change its value from 0 to 1.
    Exit Registry Editor and reopen Mail Desktop Beta. You should now see your
    Folder List in the left hand pane.

    Alright, my next question then is, How do you open the registry?

  4. Sorry, but for a question that basic, I'd suggest you find someone who is
    more knowledgeable to help you. Fooling around in the registry is not for
    amateurs since you can make your complete system unbootable if you make a
    mistake. Try taking it to a computer shop, or maybe in your neighbourhood,
    you have a "whiz" on computers who can help you. Good luck.

  5. Did you try tapping the 'Folder List' icon on the tool bar?

    No. I don't have a 'Folder List' icon on the tool bar.

    Thanks for you help. I figured out how to get into the registry. Using your
    above suggestion worked.
