    Using WLM in Vista Home Basic, and have 4 questions

    1. How can I search for emails across accounts?

    2. I have set up 4 different accounts. When I use "Send To" from an
    application, sometimes it uses my default acc, and sometimes it uses another
    one. Its quite randomly chosen. How can I force it to use only my default
    acc, and I be the one to change to the acc I want?

    3. What is the diff between Storage Folders and Folders within an acc? Any
    particular use for it?

    4. My MS Excel 2003 does not have a "Send To" in the File menu. How can I
    get it?

    Use the "Find a message" wordwheel and select All mail.
    I can't reproduce this, using Office 2003 on XP. It seems always to select
    the default account. You are sure it's a WLMail compose window that appears
    when you select File > Send to > Mail recipient... ?
    Depends on the type of account. If it's POP3, then not much.
    Storage folders have, as far as I can see, four functions.
    (i) Sent, Draft and Deleted folders for newsgroup posts; newsgroup accounts
    don't have their own.
    (ii) Folders to accommodate migrated messages (eg. ones that the installer
    finds in Outlook Express or Windows Mail during the installation process) or
    imported messages
    (iii) Temporary accommodation for "lost" messages - eg. ones that have been
    received but not indexed and recorded in the database file because of some
    glitch. These "recovered" items will usually find their way into the correct
    folder, leaving an empty "Recovered items" folder behind under Storage
    folders. At the moment, these empty folders should not be deleted because of
    the problems this causes with Quick views.
    (iv) As local storage for messages received and sent on HTTP or IMAP
    accounts. These accounts synchronize, ie. what's on the server mirrors
    what's in your local account folders. If you want to delete a message from
    the server but keep a copy within WLMail locally, you can only achieve this
    by moving the message to a folder under Storage folders.
    If Tools > Customize doesn't help, you'd better ask in an Excel forum.
    This used to happen if a third-party mail client was installed and hijacked
    the messaging settings, but I can't help you with Vista.

    You have to search in Quick views, All inbox or All emails.

    This has never worked for me in the latest version of WLMd.
