    Hi
    For some reason my WLM keeps searching for a file outlook.pst which I cannot find. I try to fix it but all fixes I found are for outllook rather than WLM

    Are you sure it's WLM and not Outlook that you are using? Show a complete screenshot.

    Most definitly WLM. I don't have outlook. All I can think of is that it is form a calendar date on outlook someone sent in the email

    At what point does it pop up? When you try to access a specific email or function?

    Do you have Outlook or Microsoft Office installed?

    OK so you do in fact have Outlook, and you've deleted the Outlook data file and need to create a new one or remove the entire Outlook profile; go to Mail in the Control Panel and delete the Profile that is there. It's also probably still set as a default program for something.

    You should also go into "Default Programs" in the "Control Panel", click "Set Your Default Programs" and then click "Windows Live Mail" and click on "Set this program as default" then click OK.
