Windows 7: How can I get back Windows Mail?

How can I get back Windows Mail?

I purchased a new PC about a month ago with Windows 7. I had Vista with Windows Mail and found both pretty decent. Now, I think I am upgrading, but Live Mail is absolutely the worse email system I have ever used.

When I click on a new message it takes about a minute before it will open. I get the message "unable to open". Also when I want to send an email it will not bring my contact names? Just absolutely terrible.

Is there someway I can download Windows Mail?

Appreciate the link, but that is much too much for me to go through on a new PC. Wish I hadn't gone to Win7.

I honestly don't know how they thought LiveMail was an upgrade?

Yeah, I don't blame you. Win 7 is a great OS they just felt the need to remove a few things.

I like windows mail too. Everything gets updated eventually though.

Cannot understand how they can take something that worked and screw it up?

Must be the way you have WLM setup or installed. Might be the mail server you use. I like it and it's snappy. I was using Outlook Express on XP. I have all my email accounts on Live Mail.

For reasons unknown to me, they got rid of Outlook Express.

After that happened, I briefly used both Windows Mail and Windows Live Mail.

Both were excruciating compared to OE.

I went to Thunderbird and have never looked back.
