    You obviously didn't read the part of my post about why the car acceleration
    metaphor doesn't work.

    1. You don't activate the option to have the (X) button minimize.
    2. You use a file menu option to exit the program.
    3. You use Task Manager to close.
    4. You right click on the Task Bar and close the application.

    As mentioned before, programs sometimes employ a variety of ways to do the
    same thing.

    P.S. You do know who won that struggle between the Young Turks and the
    Ottoman monarchists, right?

  4. Sounds like you are more skilled in attacking personalities
    than refuting logic.

    So now you have to remember if the (X) button is going to actually close or
    just minimize.
    Not every program displays the File Menu.
    That would not be a normal close. It kills the app without saving any work.
    This adds another step.
    The programmers could add 'close ONLY window' to the File Menu and right
    click on Task Bar.

    WTF does a car analogy have to do with it? I did not use such a stupid
    metaphor.

    Isn't easy to program those window buttons to be "customizable". There are
    three:

    "X" (closes application)
    "Windows" (maximizes application windows)
    "-" (minimizes application)

    Perhaps they might consider adding a fourth button, to the left of the
    "Minimize" button:

    "*" (minimize application to System Tray)
    And you aren't being an arrogant *little* twit?

    I do not want to read about people arguing over logistics and attacking each
    other with semantics please.

    I am a new user wasting my time scrolling through these posts when all I
    want to know is how to have the program running in the background in my
    system tray, telling me when new emails arrive... just like my wonderful old
    poppeeper used to until Hotmail changed something else and it stopped working
    the other day.

    Please can someone help me? I do not have the option to minimise to system
    tray anywhere and the minimise button puts it on the bottom where it's in the
    way when I open up multiple windows. I am not technical but willing to learn
    if you will all stop arguing and help me please.

    Thank you. Sarah.

    Sommer - You and your other cronies on this board need to go sign in to the dikheadcafe... Sending an app to the system tray on close versus shutting it down completely is a perfectly valid and useful function that many programs incorporate (e.g., Firefox's MinimizeToTray add-on).

    There was no justification for your crass response to Sarah's post even if you weren't ignorant to the validity of her request.

    I'm not sure why anyone would sign on to that service, let alone respond to
    a thread started 2 yrs ago for a version of an email client that is no
    longer supported.

    Says the top-posting {Cracked}egghead. You all need to find a proper
    newsfeed, and use it with a proper news client.

    You could use a filter...

    Message-ID contains "eggheadcafe.com"
    Mark as read

    Please explain how to accomplish this in Windows Live Mail v. 2008, 2009 or 2011 to which this newsgroup is devoted.

    Try this:

    Tools >> Message Rules >> Newsgroups

    Now follow the on screen instructions. Use For all messages and insert:
    "eggheadcafe" in the description box.

    For all messages does not provide a description box text entry option.

    The only text entry fields are From and Subject of which the 'eggheadcafe'
    is neither when 'pushed' to this group.

    The content in the From field is the posting email address(real or fake),
    Subject is the title of the message created or replied to.
    No other text entry options are available for newsgroup messages.

    Windows Live Mail will not filter on the Message-ID, it is only capable of
    filtering on newsgroup, From, Subject, specific account, age, number of
    lines.

    Compare with this rule line from 40tude Dialog:

    | !markread Message-ID "*.googlegroups.com"

    FWIW, 40tude Dialog can also utilize "Regular Expressions" in constructing
    rules (for those of you MS wonks who love MSOE, and similar, "regular
    expressions" is like wildcards on steroids. Not available in MSOE, WM, or
    WLM).
