    i have always used outlook express, since i purchased windows vista, outlook
    express is updated to windows live:(

    worst thing ever,
    i used to be able to just type the first letter of the email address or name
    to whom i was mailing, now if i am forwarding an email to several people i
    now have to type every address individually, in full, is this the way that
    windows live is?? is it a glitch?? can i go back to the old outlook express,
    or should i just get a yahoo account and have no problems what so ever??

    TYPE? You don't have to type anything.
    Click the TO: field and highlight all the names you want
    from your contact list and put them into BCC then send
    your email!
    (Or alternately, click one name to put into the To: field).

    Are you referring to Windows Mail or Windows Live Mail?
    WM only auto-completes from a list of 29 addresses that you've typed in.
    Click on the To: button to access your contacts.
    WLM will auto-complete from your contacts.

  5. You don't have Windows Live, you have Windows Mail.
    Simply upgrade to the newer Windows Live Mail, and that problem
    will be cured.
