Windows 7: Windows 7 Live Mail 2011

Windows 7 Live Mail 2011

Hello Everyone,

This is my first post, and I'm a newbie, so please forgive the non-technical lingo.

I have a Dell Studio Laptop 1558 running Windows 7, and it came with the new 2011 Windows 7 Live Mail. This is supposed to be the newer, fancier version of Windows Live Mail. Unfortunately, I don't like this newer version, and want the older version. Actually I'd rather have OE back, but know that's not possible.

This version has "Quick Access" which I hate. In the old OE there was one "Inbox", one "Sent", one "Draft" etc, etc. and all I had to do was click the "Inbox" and see all my messages at one time. So simple.

Can I get rid of QA or at least rig it to show all my email at once, and not separate them?

Thank you for any help you can offer.

BarbB

You are not alone, many (including me) do not like 2011
The easy solution is to make a system restore point and then try one of these many mail clients. If you do not like it just go back with the system restore and try another.

Thanks Rich,

I'll try your suggestion. Must be a better way. I've heard of Thunderbird, but also heard not great reviews. Give me back OE!

I agree I loved OE, but its gone. If you make a system restore point first, it will be easy to get rid of Thunderbird if you do not like it.
I plan to change my email client, too.

Sorry, one more thing, Rich, what about the older Windows Live---can I download that version instead. I never had that one---came straight from OE to Windows 7 2011. Thanks,

Barb,
Actually because you have been so nice with the rep and all, I feel bad. Just 2 or 3 days ago, here or in the Vista Forum an onther member had the same problem and a link was given for Live Mail. I will try to find it, but so many posts.
Check back, and if I find it or another does, it will be put here.

Bless your heart! Thanks, Rick. I'm actually checking out the link you sent me on the other email programs. Since this particular laptop is so new (1 month) and came with the 2011 version of Live Mail already loaded don't know what I'd restore it to.

Anyway, I'm sure you've got much more important things to do than dig up an old thread for me. If it pops up, love to see it, but if not, no problem. I'll do a little more research. Who knows, by the time I finish I may be in love with 2011.

BTW I tried to click your icon again, but it said I had to "spread the reputation around" before I could give it to you again-----well, since you're my one and only reply, I'm afraid I don't know where it spread.
