      Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x80070057

      Here's the problem.

       

      Open documents, single click picture, click email button in top ribbon. When clicking send receiving:

      An unknown error has occurred.

       

      Server: 'smtp.blue1000.com.au'

      Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x80070057

      Protocol: SMTP

      Port: 25

      Secure(SSL): No

       

      However. When I compose a new message from the mail client window itself and then select attach file, select the photo and send it works fine no dramas.

       

      What am I missing?

       

      Cheers.

      Hi BrisBlacksmith,

      I had exactly the same problem as you decribe above and have solved it. 

      The solution: You MUST make a Window Live account and tell Win Live Mail to log in and stay logged in to that account.

      Now you can mail attachments like pictures via the Send To - Mail Recipient in Windows 7.

      I encountered this problem when I build serveral new pcs with Win7 64-bit and installed WLM2011.

      I could send and recieve mails perfectly.  Only when I tried to use the Send To - Mail Recipient in Windows 7 I got the error:

      Server: 'smtp.xxxxxxxx.xxx' Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x80070057

      Protocol: SMTP

      Port: 25

      Secure(SSL): No

      I googled for hours. I guy suggested making a Windows Live account. Since I don't need and don't want a Windows Live account I tried that because ALL other solutions had failed.

      The pictures that you want to sent automatically make use of SkyDrive. That is probably why you need a Win Live account.

      Now I would like to know for the Microsoft Techies if there is a way to make this function work without a Win Live account / SkyDrive?

       Googled it: Answer: There is no way to disable SkyBridge.  More info here:
