    I am having continual problems with Windows Live Mail 2012 (Build
    16.4.3503.0728). It frequently shuts down noting an error and then reloads.
    I would like to go back to WLM 2011 but I'd like to keep the other parts of
    Windows Live Essentials other than WLM. Is that possible?

    No, sadly you can't mix Windows Live versions.

    No- (as BillW50 also noted) - no mix and match of versions* among the WLE 2011 and 2012 programs.

    If you are not using a Live ID to sign on Live services in Windows Live Mail 2012 ensure you
    a. backup your messages
    b. backup your contacts
    c. export your accounts to an iaf file

    Perform (a) through (c) as insurance and prior to removing the entire Windows Essential 2012 products and reinstalling WLE 2011
    suite of programs/individual applications.

    Note: If you installed SkyDrive desktop app with Windows Essentials 2012, it may not be necessary to reinstall it (even though
    provided with WE12, it’s a stand-alone program).

    Download and reinstall WLE11...your messages and contacts should be preserved (as long as you don't delete any of the previous WLM
    folders or store). You may be required to setup or import your accounts (email and news servers).

    * It is possible to install Live Mesh 11(which WE12 removes in favor of SkyDrive) and coexist with WE12. If you need that
    flexibility post back.

    So if I choose to go back to Windows Essentials 2011 will it keep all my
    existing mail and contacts?
