    I have been using Windows Vista for a few days now (business edition) and i
    hate to say it, but I really miss outlook express.

    Windows Mail just isn't the same.

    So far:

    Windows Mail seems to struggle with IMAP accounts.

    *Has crashed everyday whilst checking IMAP folders
    *Seems to totally confuse and mess around with deleted messages - In the old
    days of outlook express i could delete emails then all i had to do was
    "purge".

    Now, they get moved to Deleted items folder. This would be fine except that
    if I view my IMAP folders with another program or via web mail, the "deleted
    items" are still in my inbox.

    If i tell windows mail to empty deleted items, they then magically appear in
    deleted items in web mail.

    what on earth is going on?

    The think I miss most about OE was it's ability to use it for my hotmail
    accounts. Apparently Microsoft must want me to go to their hotmail site to
    collect my email now so that I can view the adverts instead of letting me
    continue to collect my hotmail through the windows mail program.

    More than likely I'll probably just lose the hotmail accounts because I
    never remember to go to hotmail to check my mail when I've been doing it for
    years in outlook express and it's been great that way. I really don't care
    for web mail, but since outlook express allowed me to continue to check my
    hotmail in it, I kept the accounts.

    there is a free program called HotPop for retrieving hotmail from within WM.

    search for hotmail popper.

  8. I have three very big IMAP accounts and WM never crashed with those. The
    only problem I've observed is when I move mails from one folder or
    account to another; when this operation take longer than 60 seconds then
    WM show me a message "your mailserver do not responded... etc.". But I
    still think it is more a problem with my Surgemail mailserver than WM.
    You can restore that "old" delete method: go to Options ==> Advanced ==>
    IMAP==> Use the "Deleted" folders with IMAP accounts.
    I think your webmail has it's own message store.

    I could care less. You said it was free, it's not.

    I tried to use it once, but found it didn't work most of the time.

    The way you suggest to make it "free", is stealing.

  12. Yes I can select this option but still not working. I.e if I delete
    something inbox -> it will go to deleted items. I have enabled option to
    empty deleted messages when exit, but I won't ever get emptied by
    automatically in exit. This mail sucks!!

  14. Some have reported you have to empty the deleted items several times and
    then it works.
