Sadly the pc is in another location, I thought I had emailed myself the error message but stupidly had not. So what i would like from you is the set up start to finish of putting iCloud on a windows7 pc with windows live mail.Thanks
so that pc, my iPad , and iPhone are all synchronised for address book and email messages
To enable iCloud on your Windows PC (Windows 7 or 8 required), first set up iCloud on your other devices, then install the iCloud Control Panel for Windows.
Open the iCloud Control Panel and enter the Apple ID you used to create your iCloud account. Select the iCloud services you’d like to enable and click Apply.
To enable automatic downloads for your music, apps, and books, open iTunes > Edit > Preferences > Store and select Music, Apps, and Books.*
Josh, I will not be able to confirm if this works, until I am back with the pc. The person who set it up originally, for some reason set up a gmail account to act as a go between which caused the error messages,(not sure why)the only thing that worked was sending and receiving. Should i remove the iCloud acct and gmail from the pc and start afresh.
Thanks, can you shine any light on the reason why the other person used gmail as a go between. Is it because of windows live mail. I have read on a few sites that some people find iCloud not compatible with live mail?
We have come round in a circle so are you saying now I can not set it up with windows live mail. The error messages are coming up because of the gmail go between which is not synching address book , deleted emails etc. So is you original answer not going to work on the question that i asked originally.
