    HP already sent me a box but I trashed it. It first worked lousy , but after
    a few fixes it ran ok and I have it on my network now. If only the windows
    mail would work faster. I may have to send for another box though , I'm
    going online with HP today as I have been too busy the past two or three
    weeks after going crazy the first week I had this. I hate to start over as I
    have everthing the same as my older machine a 98 and my other machine a xp
    and a laptop xp pro. Do you think MS will fix the folder option in contacts
    soon and work on speed. It's funny that I went to task manager and watch as
    I loaded and unloaded windows mail and it used between 100kb to 260 kb's and
    between 5 % to 50% cpu. all over the chart the many times I loaded it up and
    did replys and forwards. Is there something about having a duo system and
    spliting the ram up that makes it slower. Thanks for your help , with
    Mickey , Isaac and you helping I think all those poor souls out there having
    all this trouble with windows mail can be helped until MS fixes it.

    I have to ask why you don't try another program?

    Isaac, I'm going to give it one more try with live chat online as I don't
    like to call as it's hard sometimes to understand and sometime too fast for
    me, I would rather see it in black and white.

    OK, best of luck with it.
    At least if you decide to leave WM behind there are many free alternatives.

  5. Try opening Windows Calendar and closing it. Some have reported that speeds
    up WinMail.
    Don't expect any fixes from MS in the reasonable future.

    I'd say "you get what you pay for" because it's "free", but the cost of Vista
    should have included a more functional email program.

    No need to be rude. Ask a more specific question to get a more specific
    answer instead of being curt.

    What is wrong with buying all my clothes at KMart?

    Thunderbird is NOT an option, it has too many foibles.

    Windows mail works fine for ISP-based emails, such as sbcglobal.net.
    However, now that Yahoo and AT&T have bought them and are demanding users
    upgrade the account settings for more "security", Windows mail will not be
    such a good option.

    I am seriously considering buying Windows XP just so I have a system that is
    functional. Unfortunately, all of MS's lackies will stop making software to
    work in XP.

    All my emails are archived in Outlook Express.

    Windows Mail is a farce and something better should have been included with
    Vista. I installed Outlook 2003, but it couldn't import anything from
    Windows Mail.

    I should not have to look for another free email program when the one that
    comes with the operating system should function properly and the way it has
    for ages.

    Many of the free emails will not integrate well with Vista or MS will place
    some type of block preventing its use. Remember AOL and MSN messenger fiasco?

    The email program that is part and parcel of the operating system should
    provide proper functionality!

  16. Why do professional business men dress in a white shirt, tie and
    jacket? It gives them a professional appearance, which in turn
    translates into customer trust. Appearance counts.
    I'm sure KMart clothes are very functional, but it many social
    circles, the presence of upscale designer labels is a plus.

    Frankly, I would not make online purchases from a seller
    who only offered a Hotmail address. I insist on seeing a
    registered domain name for a seller.

  17. You're not making any sense.
    Why would increased security settings for AT&T/Yahoo
    customers make Windows Mail not a good option?
    As an AT&T/Yahoo customer I can vouch that both WM and WLM
    have no problems with those settings.

  18. After you do your homework you can come back here and
    sound intelligent like the rest of us. :)

  19. Sure it does.
    Find the box the computer came in.
    Pack it back in the box.
    Return it.
