There are backup apps out there google windows live mail backups. If you just want to backup the email, you can simply export it to a different partition.

Hello LostSoul,

In addition, the tutorial below can help show you how to export (backup) and import (restore) your email messages.

Perhaps we should mention backing up contacts. If you always "sign-in" you will be using the contacts stored at contacts.live.com so that is your back up. If you are not signing in you are using your "not signed-in" contact list which can be exported/imported using .csv or .vcf formats but that will save all contacts in a big list ignoring the way you grouped them into "categories".

The downloadable email program which is part of the Windows Live Essentials suite is called "Windowl Live Mail". It is a full email program that includes all the protocols of older clients like pop3, imap, nntp and also the newer http used by @live.com email addresses. You can set up many accounts on WLM each with its own individual account protocol, email address, and server settings.

Windows Live Hotmail is a website which displays Microsoft's own email service which can be used either with the WLM client or with your web browser.
