Consider the following scenario.
  • You log on Windows by using an account that contains a Romanian character in the account name. For example, the account has a name of MyAccountȘ in which Ș is a Romanian character.
  • You start Windows Live Mail.
In this scenario, you receive the following error message:
Windows Live Mail could not be started. Closing Windows Live Mail. Your calendar contains corrupt data that is forcing Windows Live Mail to close. (0x8001012E)


To work around this issue, use an account that has no Romanian character in the account name to log on Windows, and then start Windows Live Mail.
