Upgrading WLM?

Discussion in 'Windows Live Mail' started by Neil Turkenkopf, Mar 3, 2014.

  1. Hi folks!

    (Win7x64, 8GB RAM, WLM Version 2011 (Build 15.4.3538.0513)

    My WLM works flawlessly, including Contacts, Message Rules, etc..

    My question is: Are there any advantages to "Upgrade" to version 12?

    As always, thanks in advance!

    Personally, until you are forced to upgrade, I'd leave it be if all works well.

  3. I've always been a big fan of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"
    so I thank you for your answer, Steve!

    The current version of WLM12 (QFE3) recently updated is primarily for
    changing the branding of the integrated SkyDrive options to the new name
    'OneDrive'
    - likewise the same update to branding applies to the other Windows
    Essential 2012 suite of programs (Photo Gallery, Movie Maker, etc.)

    While 2012 may have some under-the-hood changes no feature changes
    appear to be present. Though a significant under-the-hood change was
    done for reliability and robustness perspective...the 2012 Mail index
    and message store database is better and less problematic than the 2yr
    old 2011 QFE3 version.
