Windows Live Mail for NEWSGROUPS and Login "problem"
I have a problem using Windows Live Mail, downloaded and installed separately. As others have described, it is possible to launch WINMAIL (using wlmail.exe) and despite NOT entering a password, the program opens AND displays current emails. This surely is not right. I have cleared all cookies and made sure I have not saved this password anywhere. IF I go to www.hotmail.com and login I can see my emails. I logout. I go to Live Mail using the wlmail.exe shortcut on my desktop. I enter NO password and again I access my email...
And on a separate issue with Windows Live Mail, I use it to browse newsgroups, but for the life of me I cannot see how to download additional headers. For example, I subscribe to a Springsteen newsgroup. It displays 584 headers and tells me there are an additional 3500 for download, BUT I CAN'T SEE how to "force" an additonal download of any of these further topics.
Any help would be appreciated.

I have a lot of experience with newsgroups, but I used Windows Mail for only a month or so last spring and don't recall its details.
Newsreaders often have a setting that can limit the number of headers to be downloaded. All I can suggest is to pull down every menu you see and look it for anything that remotely looks like that choice.
Have you tried unsubscribing from the Springsteen group and then resubscribing?
For what it's worth, I have switched to Thunderbird for email and newsgroups and am not having any issues on Windows 7.
