Start/All Programs/Send feedback. The more people ask the more likely they'll take notice.

Presently 7 is still in beta form. As I remember correctly WM was out of commission in Vista when that was in beta there particularly the RC1 release. If you look closely you can still see the WM folder and files in the Program Files directory in 7 too.



Until 7 is finalized or the next beta release is seen you can use T-Bird or Live Mail.

Thunderbird for life. If omitting mail makes room for more important features I'm all for it. I'd just uninstall any mail client anyways.

I decided to give Thunderbird a try and i like it a lot, so have also installed it on my XP partition.

That's a simple task of going into the menu bar>tools>folder options>view tab and unchecking a few hide options as well as selecting the shows all protected sys files. That was used in XP and Vista as well for things like setting up a dual boot.

See post #19 it's a little more complicated than that.

I have WM working for the most part on build 7000. Just can't get it to be the default for .eml files. It will not open an email on my desktop. I have to drag it into the inbox first.

It works fine here too. I did have the "default mail handler" issue a while back and it cleared up once WM had a competing mail handler to contend with.
