    Just downloaded and trying WLM.

    I have to say the colour colour scheme is putrid, what's with this pastel
    colours?
    What happened to the OE6 colours, is there anyway I can get WLM to look like
    OE6?

    There is no doubt the lack of contrast will cause eye strain on those of us
    that have use it all day.

    Surely there must be a setting somewhere so that we can change the look
    back.

    The pastel interface is one of the most disliked features. WLM does not provide any other method to modify the interface.
    Fyi...OE6 colors were controlled by the operating system, not OE.

  3. I personally would prefer that MS went back to having the OS control the
    colors and fonts in any app written for use in XP.

    Hi Tenchie,

    I agree the colors are very " PUTRID", I was just saying that in another
    news feed that, I think they should of kept the look of Outlook Express 6
    and then just gave it a slight face lift and let US THE USERS choose how we
    want it to look, not this VISTAISH look we have on XP HOME.

    But like someone said, a couple post's down, US XP users have been put
    on the back burner, since our operating system is SO OLD now and they prob
    wont listen to us now :(

    Thanks,
    Christopher
