Hello all.

I'm using the WLM beta since yesterday, and while some things could be
improved (I'll write a post later about that), it's still quite good.

I have a minor issue now: I've set up a Hotmail account in the WLM Accounts
dialog. It asked me if I want to use that account as my Windows Live
associated address to get contact info, etc. I said yes. But later I decided
to remove that association, because I don't like the delay of logging in the
Windows Live service each time I start the WLM application, but I didn't
found any option to do so!

So I tried to remove my Windows Live account from WLMessenger. That resulted
in having a popup dialog asking for my Windows Live login/password details
EACH TIME I start WLMail, so I have to hit Cancel to continue. How can I get
rid of that dialog?, since I don't want to login in Windows Live each time I
start WLM.

Thank you!

You can remove the Windows Live ID association in WLM by going to the Tools
menu and clicking Options. Go to the Connection tab and press "Remove
sign-in account." I think this is what you're looking for.

Thanks for beta testing!

Yes, that's the option I was looking for. Thank you!

I didn't notice those buttons were in the "Connections" tab, because that
tab used to be only for dial-up options in Outlook Express, which I now don't
use having broadband.

Thanks again for the quick reply!
