    Hi Microsoft.

    Some of the menus in Windows Live Mail are hardcoded/custom-coded to allow
    icons to exist at the left of the text. While these look great, they do not
    use the Vista standard “Windows Presentation Foundation†(WPF) menu style
    with the divider between the icons on the left and the text on right and much
    more space between the icons and text. It would be great if Windows Live
    Mail could detect when a user is running Vista and enable the WPF Vista menu
    look on the hardcoded menus with icons, just like Windows Live Mail detects
    Vista and enables AERO transparency on the toolbar automatically. I think if
    Windows Live Mail is truly going to replace regular Windows Mail in Vista, it
    has to support all of Vista’s default GUI features.

    Here is an example picture that demonstrates this at

    Microsoft, what do you think?

    What do all you users think about this feature request?

    Seems like a no-brainer for MS to fix WLM so it can be configured
    just like OE, since OE is the customary mail program for millions of
