Bug not fixed- can I still access Windows Mail?

    I like a lot of what I see with the new beta. It was nice to see the "next
    unread folder" shortcut was implemented. So I know that they are listening.
    However, it seems that I still can't dictate into HTML messages with Vista
    speech recognition. It still will only dictate the first word I say rather
    than the whole sentence. An unfortunate bug.

    But at least with the last build I could use Windows Mail to fall back on to
    write (dictate) messages. Is there a way to still access Windows Mail? I
    would hate to have to uninstall this new beta (although losing the minimize
    to tray function is pretty frustrating as well). Hmm...

    Any help would be appreciated.

    When I installed Windows Live Mail, it did not create a shortcut to MS
    Outlook Express in the WLM programs folder, as was supposed to happen. I had
    to locate the program on the HDD and manually create the shortcut. Perhaps
    you can do the same with the Windows Mail program.

    The shortcuts for Windows Mail and Outlook Express aren't supposed to be
    under the Windows Live Mail programs folder. Those are totally separate
    products, and have their own folders for accessing - and they should be in
    the exact same location they were before you installed WL Mail. Let me know
    if that's not the behavior you're seeing.

    Also, the minimize to sys tray option has not been removed. You can right
    click on the tray icon and choose to minimize to the sys tray from there.

    hope this helps!

    All that I can say is that the WLM install did *something* with my MSOE
    shortcuts; I could not find a way to start it without manually recreating

  5. Likewise my WM shortcuts were removed by the WLM install, and
    I had to recreate them.

    Same here, even a search didn't find winmail till I made new shortcuts
    manually. Also nothing was imported!! Had to do everything manually.
