I've been using Windows mail for as long as I've used Windows 7 and now it quit. I know Windows live mail is availlable and I tried it. I don't like the washed out look and I like the option of checking the source in a forward and being able to remove the blue lines before resending the mail. As far as I know, that can't be done in any other email program. I tried reinstalling the same files as when originally setting it up to no avail.
