Windows 7: Does anyone use Windows Live Email?

Does anyone use Windows Live Email?

Dell Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E7500 Computer
Inspirion 545s 00
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
6GB Memory
750GB Hard Drive

I use Windows Live Mail for my email client. Is there a way from within the program to click on something and have mail come down the pike again?

As of yet, I've not found a way and in order for new mail to come in, I must exit program and go back in.

Any ideas on this please, would be appreciated.

Thank you
windsorlady

If you click on "sync" it will do the send/receive function again. You should see "sync" on the toolbar. You may need to go to "view" and enable the toolbar.

It has been so long since I have used any Windows email client, that I wouldn't have any suggestion...except using a third party client. There are plenty of good clients, both free and paid.

Hi Windsorlady

You can simply click on the "Inbox" button whilst in the program and it will reload and download new mail for you.

You have all helped me. I really do like Windows Live mail -- it's the closest thing to Outlook Express that I've seen. Thanks for all your help.

Now -- 1 more question (to V3xar) --- how did you get the picture embedded into the post (or attached)? I wanted to include a graphic in another post and couldn't find a way. Know it's there!

Thanks again.

Thanks again -- I went and tried both methods and they all work for me. I didn't realize I was bringing in new mail already by clicking on things (LOL). Appreciate you!!

Glad you got the problem sorted out.

Regarding the embedding of pics, have a look here :A Preferred Method of Uploading/Posting Screen Shots

Have a good day!
