I have Windows Live Mail installed through the Windows Essentials 2012 package, but I'm having a problem getting my e-mail client to switch to "Work Offline" mode. Every time I click the "Work offline" button expecting it to switch itself to "Work online", two things can be observed:

1) The button does not switch and stays as is.

2) The status bar icon does in fact switch to indicate that the client is in offline mode, but on the next time the scheduled e-mail check on an interval of 1 minute takes off, it switches itself back to online mode.

I ran across this thread and I seem to be having a similar (if not the same) issue myself. I also tried following the instructions given by the moderators in that thread, but none of them solved the problem!

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit (Service Pack 1) and the latest update of Internet Explorer 11 (which some suggest might be related to causing the issue). I used to have that feature work back in 2011 when I had the client installed, but now it seems broken.

Any assistance to solve this issue would be much appreciated, and thanks in advance!
