Windows 7: How do I get rid of the prompt to sign up to Windows Live Mail

How do I get rid of the prompt to sign up to Windows Live Mail

Every time I start Win Live Mail I get a prompt to sign up. I use my own mail server and do not wish to use the online live mail.

How do I stop this prompt from appearing (apart from signing up)?

Hello Robert,

If you would like to uninstall the program, go into your control panel>uninstall programs and find "windows live essentials". Click uninstall. It will lead you to a screen asking if you want to uninstall specific programs or the whole thing. Choose specific and check off windows live mail on the next screen. That should do the trick.

*edit - in re-reading your post I realize likely you seem to want to use live mail. In that case, I don't rightly know

Seriously......Try this,: Windows Live Mail - New Mail Notification Sound you might be able to reverse engineer this.

Something a little better.....Windows Live Messenger - Taskbar or Notification Icon

DustSailor's tip has merit also.

Same problem here with WLM 2011. Tried above solutions and neither worked. If I don't sign in to start with, I get the prompt window and the button to not sign in is dimmed. If I go ahead and sign in, I can then click the button to not sign in. I get warning I won't be able to sync etc (no loss, imo), and then I click it. Open an email, click photo email button and the sign in window returns with the don't sign in button dimmed.

Sounds like everything is working properly. If you stop signing in you can no longer choose to stop signing in and you can no longer use photo email.

There's a simple way of converting a photo email into an attachment - the recipient needs to have a Windows Live account to access a photo email, which is a pain.
