    Is it possible to only revert the WLM 2011 portion of WLE 2011 back to the
    WLM 2009 version or will I have to delete WLE 2011 to be able to install
    all of WLE 2009? With 2011 installed I have gone to a site to at least
    download
    WLE 2009 but it recognizes I already have 2011 and won't give me the
    download
    option.

    It is my understanding that WLE updates as a unit. If you have both Windows
    Live Mail, and any other WLE component, they must all be on the same
    revision level. When I updated from WLMail 2009 to 2011, the installer also
    updated WLMessenger, as well. If I had any of the other "Essentials", I
    assume those would have also been updated to 2011.

    If Vista, you can go back to Windows Mail and retain non-mail 2011 apps.

    Thanks for that info, Winston. I forwarded it to my friend who is also not
    too happy with WLM 2011. As for myself, however, I now find those senders I
    blocked with the Spam icon now finally appear to being blocked so I guess
    I'll stay with WLE 2011. I don't know what happened almost a week went by
    with "blocked" senders still arriving in my Inbox. I did a Windows update
    yesterday. Perhaps that's what caused my blocked senders to finally
    becoming actually blocked?

    Panic,
    You're welcome.
    WU or MU (Windows or Microsoft update) does not provide anything related to
    the Junk Mail filter or engine in Windows Live Mail(any version).

    Fyi...check your blocked senders list periodically..in some spam cases, the
    headers may be falsified by placing your email address as the
    sender(possibly harvested from use on the net, in public newsgroups or from
    another's address book).....thus its possible(in any email client) to block
    one's own address.
    - Does it happen often, no..but most would fall in the BTDT group.

    Thanks for your clear, precise instructions. I followed them and had success in reverting to Windows Live Mail version 2009. It worked the first try. Version 2011 was terrible on my Netbook - the tool bars took up too much of the limited screen space.
