Windows Live Mail 2011 not displaying emails

  1. Windows live mail 2011 will show that I have new emails and when I go to click on them it would normally show the message in the preview window. Instead, it shows nothing, just blank. I noticed by cursor has an hourglass next to it too. I actually tried double clicking the message to open it in a new window and it still displays a blank email. Any suggestions? Thanks!
    Im running win 7 64-bit

    I recommend you upgrade to 2013, nice new features. When you uninstall and reinstall it updates components that is why.

    I just fixed mine in Windows 10 Live Mail 2011. No changes to data or software.
    CAUSE: Reading pane was maximized while set to "Bottom of the message list".
    FIX: Drag the top edge of the Reading pane down from just below the column headings (From, Subject, Date).
    -OR- Change the View>Reading pane option to "Right of the message list" or "Off".
