I seem to have an extra window here and I can't get rid of it. Another tribute to my general incompetence, I guess.

Follow precisely: Windows Mail (after your system is up to date per Windows Update). However, as MuffinHat points out, MS doesn't support it on Windows 7, so it's always possible a future update will break it. So far the people behind the tutorial have been updating the critical file in the tutorial (msoe.dll) which is why it's important to update your system first before using the updated tutorial version. Also, as MuffinHat said, it is possible to live with WLM. It's just that it has a lot of new, unneeded, features that make it harder to find what you used to do in Windows Mail. Even the fellow who wrote the tutorial (poppa bear) has gone back to WLM.
I just discovered this new post in the Windows Mail Tutorial:
Windows Mail. The poster claims that SP1 removed some registry entries which are referenced in the tutorial and need to be put back.
