    In the past version of which it was still called WLMD, whenever I click the
    X button it will minimize the WLMD. But not in the new version it just shuts
    off the WLM immediately. I would like the suggest a prompt first or else
    back to minimizing the prog. Also, you guys may also want to create a prompt
    whenever people accidentally click exit. This should be like Windows Live
    Messenger. Thanks (:) If anyone knows how to change the options for it to
    work like this. Please share.e

    Open Windows Live Mail. Right click on the envelope icon in the System Tray.
    From the menu, select, "Hide window when Inbox is minimized". Now whenever
    you minimize WLM, all you will see is the envelope icon in the System Tray.

    The only programs I ever use which minimize to the tray on the "X" button
    are the IM applications. I *expect* the "X" to close the application; it is
    the IM clients which are abnormal.

    Always assume that clicking the X is going to close a program.

    Yes. But the stupid IM clients started throwing that into the toilet at some
    point. I don't like it, but AIM, YIM, Trillian, and now Windows Live
    Messenger all buck common sense, and minimize to the system tray on using
    the "X". It is just wrong in so many ways; but now people are starting to
    expect their mail clients to behave in the same manner.
