Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Are you saying, that you have Windows Live mail now configured to two different email addresses that both belong to you?
And that attempting to use the second email address, froze up Windows Live email?
Let me know. Thanks.
Were you logged in to the secondary address at the time?
If not, that may have caused the lockup.
Trying to use a second Windows Live Mail address for sending, may require logging in to both, or even perhaps logging out of the first and into the second before sending from the second may proceed. Authorization (which is what login provides) is important in email programs.
(I regret that I am not able to offer Live Video Call service at this time; However, your request is still open to other Experts in this category, and one of them may pick up on it at any time.)
But, which login (first address that you were already surely logged in to, or second address) were you logging in to?
You did not see the email login name? when you logged in.
OK. You need to log out of Windows Live email altogether, I think.
Then log in again - only, change your login email address to the second email address. That's the only way it is likely to work.
If the icon does not give you a choice of login email addresses, then you would have to log in by something other than that icon.
Well... try logging in without using that icon. Which may well be configured to only the first email address... it cannot be configured to both email addresses.
...after logging out, first, please.
OK. So that's still locked up.
Can you try to log in to Windows Live email, by way of Internet Explorer, instead?
If you need instructions, I'll detail how to go about that procedure.
Open the Internet Explorer program (the big blue 'E'.)
Enter this address
and proceed to log in there... if it is already logged in, choose the Sign Out option, then go to
again, and sign in. But enter the second email address for your login, instead of the first. And of course the password ***** the second also.
Did that work?
If so, please rate my answer - a five star rating would be appreciated!
(If not, then let me know how it went, please. Thanks.)
