Downgrade windows live or remove skydrive

I have recently upgraded windows live mail to the 2011 version. Sending a simple photo email is a mission now. I dont want skydrive and all that added rubbish. How do I downgrade?

I agree with the view that, Windows Live Mail 2011 is a total load of crap and over complicated. I was running the previous version of Windows Live Mail, when it got updated automatically when I tried to install Live Messenger. It has a few useful features like the calendar etc... however the menu layouts are ridiculous. The icons views are either too big or too small. Its also too difficult to turn things on and off and find out where to turn them on and off. It's not well structured.
