    For 3-4 months I've been able to open Windows Mail without having to log in
    each time. Is tis new & can I turn that off?

  2. Chance are, you are running an antivirus program that is not fully
    compatible with Windows Mail. Which antivirus is it?

    Its worked fine till today. Using Sophos & Avira AntiVir Personal.

  4. I'm not familiar with those two programs.

    As an interim fix, try this: delete your email account, restart
    Windows Mail, then recreate that account. If that fixes the
    problem, it means your antivirus was corrupting the email account.
    Email scanning in any antivirus must be disabled. For more on this,

    After running Vista 64 and Windows Mail for months with no trouble, I also
    have this exact same problem as of today. I am using no other antivirus
    software. It is extremely annoying to have to log in every time I open
    Windows Mail. Was this caused by an automatic Vista "update"? There must be
    a way around this. Stop the insanity.

  6. It isn't clear to me what "no other antivirus software" means.
    No antivirus whatsoever? Any other third party security software
    like anti-spyware or firewall?

    Try this: delete the account, restart Windows Mail, then recreate
    that account.
