    I recently upgraded to Windows Live Mail. I currently have Win XP on this system.

    The problem I am having is I have a yahoo account, that I am requesting it to pull down from - when it tries to sync, it will say that it is downloaded thousands of emails (that I can't see on the yahoo server), and it never ends. It will do this for hours and it has never completed the download process of what emails I don't know.

    I have deleted the inbox associated with this account from WLM, and reopened it, only to still have the same problem.

    I have done searchs to find a solution for this with no luck. How do I make it stop trying to download all these other things (or whatever it is doing) and only download currently messages.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Shona,

    Do you have a Trash or Spam folder with a lot of email in it that can be deleted first?

    If you let it run over night does it still not finish the initial download?
