Windows 7: Live Mail, Calendar and Contacts

Live Mail, Calendar and Contacts

I'm currently using WLM as my email client with my ISP's email account and not signing in to my MSN account.

I can import contacts and the like but their birthdays don't appear in the Calendar unless I sign into MSN and then only the contacts' birthdays' that I have in MSN appear in the Calendar.

So if I don't want to use my MSN account with WLM then I have to create the Birthday calendar manually...

This is my gripe with WLM, it "encourages" the end user to use a Live mail account or all the features in WLM don't work.

If I'm wrong about this could someone explain how to get non MSN contacts birthdays to appear in WLM calendar.

Thanks

I do not know the answer to your question, but I can give you the lead to a great desktop calendar. It has many features and I think it is better than MSN or Yahoo. Take a look

Thanks for the reply and the link to your calendar :-)

The Mozilla one is also quite good apparently.
