    Hi:
    How about using the same 'minimize to tray when closed' like Messenger
    instead of option to Hide window when Inbox is minimized. Windows Live Mail
    is inactive while in the system tray, isn't it? It doesn't seem to send
    mail at that time. Thanks, Mike

    Minimize to tray is the way it should be.
    I don't want programs being active when hitting close.

  3. WLM is not an IM program, and it needs to keep the same behavior
    as other POP email programs.

    IMHO, IM programs need to keep the same behavior as other programs.

    I do not think it's working right with this version. It minimizes to system
    tray when closed with X or File Exit and if it is Minimized. The only
    closure is right click on the tray icon and choose Exit from the list or
    using Task Manager. I don't mind [it keeps the recovering to a minimum], I
    just thought someone might want to change it some way.

    I do not think it's working right with this version. It works that way
    unless a compose window is open, in that case it minimizes to system tray
    when closed with X or File Exit and if it is Minimized. The only closure is
    if the compose window is sent and/or closed, or to right click on the tray
    icon and choose Exit from the list or using Task Manager which will also
    close the compose window and save it in Drafts. That seems right and I
    don't mind [it keeps the recovering to a minimum], I just thought someone
    might want to change it some way.

    Hi Make,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    The option from the system tray icon is "Hide window when inbox is
    minimized". So "X" or "File Exit" still closes the window. The way to
    hide window is to "minimize". If you click on the minimize button on
    the right top window bar, the window will minimize to tray. Yes, it's
    different from the behavior of Messenger. However, this is similar to
    other mail programs such as Outlook.

    Thanks,
    -Hua
