  3. Thanks Gary,

    What's the duiff btwn WM and WLM??

  4. Think of WLM as WM + bug fixes + Hotmail access.
    Other differences are largely cosmetic.
    There are a few basic differences. WLM works on both XP and Vista.
    WLM doesn't have a unified Inbox, it sets up separate mail folders
    for each mail account.

    WLM is receiving the benefit of ongoing Microsoft development
    while WM is not. Unlike here, Microsoft reps participate in WLM's

    There is no drawback to trying WLM. If you decide you don't like
    it, you merely uninstall it, and WM is back.

    Many thanks for this advice, it's very helpful.

    One question: If I change to WLM, what happens to the email folders and
    emails that I'm keeping in WM? Do all these automatically migrate to the
    proper place in WLM?

  6. Theoretically, but not satisfactorily in my experience.

  7. In most cases the migration is automatic. There is no harm in trying
    it out. If you don't like WLM, merely uninstall it, and WM is back.

    I'm using Windows Live Mail now, and it seems just great! Many thanks again.

  9. Thanks for the feedback. If you haven't done so already, be sure
    to get the final version which was released a few days ago (build 12.0.1606).
