fail when selecting a photo (jpg file) using the email option, and get error 8CCC003 in WLM.
As part of this
process, I have my WLM configured to use my ISP email server (which works fine when I attach photos or insert jpg files
directly). It also fails the same way when you select a photo file and use right click to select SEND from the drop down
menu. Also, WLM is my default email program (something pointed out in Microsoft posts).
After the email send
operation is initiated, when WLM comes up, it opens the Windows Live ID signon dialog. I don't have a Live ID. However,
when I close that dialog to let WLM use my normal ISP connection, the generated email gets stuck in the OutBasket with the
above error, and all future send/receive operations hard fail until that broken message is deleted.
computer has XP installed (came with it from the vendor), and WLM 2009. Under that configuration, such email operations work
fine as WLM 2009 does not come up with an attempt to use Live ID. The send just runs and the message arrives at its
So, it appears that more recent versions of WLM that use the Live ID login, screw up the message
such that it must be deleted, or have a "undocumented" requirement that precludes using WLM for such operations when a normal
account uses an ISP email connection.
Anybody else experience this problem or have any workarounds WITHOUT having
to resort to using Live ID? Having a Live ID does work (from Microsoft posts) but does expose your messages and files to
On Picasa help, it is indicated that for this to work, one must use a gmail account or a Google
account (where the file is posted to the Google cloud with a reference to the cloud location inserted in the email rather
than attaching or inserting the actual file). Also, it is indicated that for Live ID connections, the file/photo is sent to
SkyDrive with a reference to the SkyDrive location inserted in the email. This seems overbearing, ignoring normal ISP email
services and inflicting my WLM configuration with a bad email message in the OutBasket.
