    I have been having a problem with entering multiple contacts in the "TO" line
    when using the contacts list window. I also get an error message everytime I
    start Windows Live Beta that says, "Sorry, and unexpected error has occcured
    and Windows live needs to close" if you click the "OK" button, WL closes.
    You reopen it occurs again. If you just keep using WL the message is buried
    under the WL window but is still there.

    Anyone have anything to correct these problems?

    Or, if not, does anyone know if I uninstall Windows Live Beta, and then
    re-install Windows Live 12, will I loose the emails in my inbox from POP3
    accounts. I know the web based email can be reloaded, but my POP3 accounts
    delete from the server as soon as they are downloaded.

    Some have had luck with installing WLM production and retaining messages..

    But for the best chance of success..one should back up those messages in the pop3 account(either using WLM's export messsage or
    drag to an Explorer folder), remove the beta entirely, and reinstall WLM production.
