    Bear with me - I'm new to the PC. Incredimail now charging to use Junk Mail
    facility - loads of spam. Need to change to Vista Windows Mail as default to
    receive e-mails - what must I do? Already downloaded and getting the odd
    message from Orange and using to send pics from Picasso etc. Thanks

  2. Start | Default Programs
    Make sure Windows Mail has all three defaults.

    Incredimail will not receive any mail if you never open it. Better yet,
    uninstall it from the Control Panel.

    It is probably deleting mail from the server when it downloads it. This is
    the default action for a mail client and is listed in the POP3
    specification.

  5. Did you
    a) Verify that Windows Mail has all three of its defaults?
    b) Uninstall IncrediMail?

    An uninstalled email program can't be receiving email.
