Windows 7: Winows Live mail and Windows 7

Winows Live mail and Windows 7

I have two laptops running Windows 7 Home Premium and a netbook running Windows 7 Starter

When using Home Premium and Windows Live Mail I cahave the following menus across the top

(what looks like) a Book
Home
Folders
Views
Account.

If I click on the arrow to the left of the "book" I get down the left hand side of the page the following menus

New
Save
Print
Import Message
Export Mail
Options
About
Exit

If I click on Otions/Email Accounts I am able to edit the Email Account Settings.

When using Home Starter and Windows Live Mail I have the following menus across the top

New
Reply
Reply All
Forward
Add to Calendar
Delete Junk
Sync

I cann see no way to be able to edit the account settings.


Why are these two versions of Windows Live mail so different and how can I access my Email Account settings.?

One thing I would like to do is to ensure that a copy of the email is left on the server. I know I can do this via the account seetings - hence the need to find them.

If I can try to save you some trouble, switch to using a service that offers IMAP e-mail or go with a cloud-based account. POP3 e-mail is antiquated, and if you are using multiple computers, you'll realize how nice it is to have everything synced on the fly, like business users have with Exchange.

Gmail is a cloud-based service, so you are covered already. For your wife, does she use an address from an ISP? If so, some of them don't offer IMAP. Comcast, for example, doesn't offer IMAP, only POP3, so I don't use their e-mail. I use Live, aka Outlook.com, which is basically the same thing as gmail, just Microsoft's equivalent.
