The "Properties" window appears: Click OK to close the Properties window, then click Close to close the Accounts window.
If Windows Live then asks you whether you would like to refresh your folder list choose Yes. Try sending yourself a test email message to make sure it works.
We have received a number of tickets related to this since the Monday release so we will revert the current release back to 14.3 for now and will release a new version later today that will only apply the fix to a set number of accounts per hour to limit the impact on resource usage.
With Windows Live Mail, you can optionally use IMAP connections for reading incoming mail.
We have seen customers encounter a problem where if they refresh their IMAP folder list several times, the Inbox disappears from the list of folders (but all of the messages are still safely in the Inbox on our server).
If this happens to you, try going back to step 3 above and clearing the "Root folder path", click OK and Close and let it refresh the folder list, then go back and restore as the "Root folder path".
Still, most of the time we have to move mail off the new profile as, of course, Gmail hoards email.
(See #3 below.) After you start having email overload, the folders in your Outlook stop synchronizing nice and easy.
This will cause a large spike in resource usage after installing this new version until all the IMAP clients have re-synced the affected folders.
You will need to create a path for the folders under the IMAP tab on Account Properties.
Be sure that the boxes for Check new messages in all folders and Store special folders on IMAP server are checked.
Using IMAP (instead of the more widely used "POP3") allows you to keep your messages on our servers instead of downloading them to your computer.
Keeping your messages on our servers can be useful if you read mail two completely different ways.
