    You could set up a hybrid account, using Roadrunner to receive, and Gmail to
    send from anywhere.

    Sign up for a Gmail account. Enable POP on the website.
    http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=13273

    Set your laptop to use the Gmail server to send (SMTP).
    Keep all POP settings with Roadrunner.

    Servers tab:
    Outgoing (SMTP) = smtp.gmail.com
    check [x] "My server requires authentication"
    click on "Settings"
    you don't want to use the same settings as the incoming server
    check [x] "Log on using", and enter your Gmail account name (),
    and password
    check [x] Remember password"
    do not check [ ] "Log on using secure password Authentication"

    Advanced tab:
    Outgoing mail (SMTP) - 465
    check [x] "This server requires a secure connection (SSL)"


    Gmail instructions for OE...

  5. Does the work connection give you a username and password with AT&T?
    If not, you will have to use Gmail for sending, as already explained by Dave.

    Hello
    I know it is an old thread
    but I wanted to put my two cents in
    I had this same issue
    I would close windows live mail but if I looked in task manager it would still be running (wlmail.exe)
    If I killed it through task manager, then I could open it, but it would give a message "recovering mail folder" (something like that)
    at any rate, this is what worked for me
    1) I exported all the mail and all the mail accounts
    2) I looked in the settings and found out where the mails were stored (users\app data\local\microsoft\windows live mail, something like that)
    3) I shut down live mail (by killing it through task manager)
    4) I renamed that folder to something else and created a new folder called "windows live mail"
    (PS -- I got this idea from another post, but now I can't find it)
    5) I reopened windows live mail, it created all the needed files in the new folder, it showed no accounts
    6) I imported the accounts I had just exported (not the mails, just the accounts)
    7) here is the part that might not work for other people -- I had the windows live mail set up so that the mails stayed on the server after I read them -- so it just redownloaded all the mails from the server and now everything is working
    I guess if you did not do that then you would have to try to import your old mails but I didn't have to do that part
    (I did have to put the password back in for the account)

    Your 'two cents' replied to an approx. six (6) year old thread.
    The code for WLM has been rewritten to ensure the wlmail.exe process is
    closed prior to a subsequent incidence opening of WLM.

    If you are still seeing your problem that the wlmail.exe process doesn't
    end after closing WLM then WLM was aborted prematurely during an
    indexing or compaction or interfered by a non-MFST third party AV or
    Firewall program.

    It is always a good idea to export mail and mail accounts for backup and
    insurance purposes.

    Fyi..it is standard practice to require the password to be re-entered
    when importing an email account from a previously saved file (*.iaf)
