Error: 0x8ccc0003 Windows Live Mail 2012 on Windows

If you see an error with errorcode 0x8ccc0003 in your Windows Live Mail 2012 client on Windows 7 or Windows 8(.1), it is due to not having a Live Microsoft Account.

When you try sending multiple images into an album; this e-mail will never be sent and returns the following error:

Server: ‘’
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x8CCC0003
Protocol: SMTP
Port: 465
Secure(SSL): Yes

The solution is to delete the e-mail(s) that are in your outbox. Try sending the images as a normal attachment instead of in an album.
