Anyone prefer Live Mail over Windows Mail?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Cameron Snyder, Mar 7, 2008.

  1. Could you take a few moments to hit on some features you prefer over Windows
    Mail or how it differs from other "webmail" you've used? Is it that you can
    just keep your ISP mail separate without using their pop and smtp servers?
    What?

    Thanks

  4. I use Outlook 2003 and 2007 for email (and contacts and appointments), but
    it's so incredibly slow, and badly designed. I am looking out for something
    better, but not found anything suitable so far.

    The Office Live Workspace beta has just been made available to UK users, so
    hopefully I will at last be able to share the .pst file between computers,
    but I have not looked into it yet.

  5. I saw an advert for this in PC Pro. It looks really good, and it seems to
    be able to manage all your other accounts too. I might try it out, but I
    have far too many email addresses as it is.

    Live Mail is faster than Windows Mail, and looks nicer. I have never like
    web mail so I prefer to use a mail client on my computer.

    I use Outlook 2003 and 2007. It's anything but slow. Maybe your hardware
    can't handle it or you have hundreds or thousands of e-mails sitting there.
    You should do some maintenance and clean up your inbox. Calender function
    works extremly well. What don't you like?

  8. Thanks for the responsive reply. I concur with your client preference and I
    thought that Live Mail was web based. Learned something there. I use Windows
    Mail now, used Outlook and Express in previous Windows and I'm trying to
    understand the allure of Live Mail from those who prefer it. So what exactly
    is faster?

  9. I must not be a power user of email so I don't quite get how an email client
    could be so slow, but no matter. I'm looking for benefits of Live Mail. So
    is the benefit of Live Mail a central store of contacts and email that can
    be accessed from multiple machines?

    I guess there's no UbuntuMail or else someone would have mentioned it here
    by now.

  11. My hardware is certainly powerful enough. My laptop is powerful for its age
    (2004, with Outlook 2003) and my desktop has a E6600 C2D with twin Raptor
    10,000rpm disks in RAID-0 (Outlook 2007).

    I have two POP3 email accounts, one large IMAP account with lots of folders
    that incoming mail gets sorted into and two Hotmail accounts using the
    Outlook Connector. Outlook runs like treacle.
