Starting up Windows Live Mail, I see that receiving email continues but they are not really coming in, just the email counter that shows tens of thousands of emails are coming in. In a few minutes the counter says 45000 emails! You can not stop it!

OK, I think I found a solution as the Emails counter immediately stopped and only actual new emails now come in after doing the following (I searched for nearly one year after discovering this):

1) Startup Windows Live Mail.
2) Then Click the Icon "Work Offline".
3) Then Click on "Accounts Tab" then.

4) Click on the "Properties Icon", then

5) On the Properties Menu, Click on the "General Tab", then

6) At the bottom of the General Tab, uncheck the following:
"Include this account when receiving mail or synchronizing."

Done!

Hope it works for you too.
