    It's an e-mail that's very important to me as it's from a Film school that I've applied to. Hotmail will let me open all other e-mails in my inbox, just not this one.
    There's an attachment in the e-mail, and when I try to open it, it just says:
    "Windows Live Hotmail wasn't able to complete this request. Microsoft may contact you about any issues you report."

    If someone could reply soon I'd be extremely grateful!
    Thanks.

    Thanks for the quick reply Raymond, but the error message appears before the email is actually open. I can't get into the email itself, all I can see is the sender and subject, so I'm not sure how to forward it to a Gmail account!

    What version of Windows do you have?

    Try installing Windows Live Mail 2011 and use that to remove the problematic email.

    If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7 this should be an easy way to remove the problem email and resync your account.

    Okay ive come across the same problem as the person who created this thread. I received a email quite a important one and could not open it:eek:, asked sender to resend it and still same problem. All my other emails i could open fine.

    And then i accidentally come across a solution, you can actually read the email without opening it HOW COOL IS THAT :D. This is how i did it....

    1. In you inbox right click on the email u cant open and click on 'view message source'.

    2. A terrible long page will open up. Scroll down all the way to the bottom,
    then slowly scroll up and you should come across the contents of the
    email. It will be something like --=====123_eimwqimdq=====-- and
    underneath will be your email contents.
