Have been using Live Mail for about a month. About 10 days ago, when opening Live Mail I get response quote 'A problem occurred while trying to open this message. A problem has occurred. Please try again.' Unquote. It takes three double clicks before message finally opens. I have gone into unopened deleted messages and same thing. It is on both computers

I saw the following, which seemed to work for many other people in that with the exact same problem.

Try following these steps:

"Go to (Control Panel -> Programs and Features) uninstall software and select uninstall for Windows Live Essentials 2011. You will be given the option to uninstall it or repair it. Select "Repair". Takes a few minutes but should eliminate the message.

If that does not work, then another option is - Did you recently install Windows Updates and did this problem start to happen after you installed the updates ? You may need to approach it from there.

Hope this helps.
