ms win live mail vs live mail Hotmail

I have the win live mail installed but we have this computer set for my wife and me. My side has a normal win live mail and works fine. On her side we can only access win mail - Hotmail and this is not what we want. How do we get her into the basic without hotmail?

Are you saying one user account has Windows Live Mail application and one user account does not?

There may be different ways to go about this, but you could install it on the user account that does not have it....then set up your wifes account. It should work.

There is probably a way to make the program available to all users. If you want to go this route, I'm sure someone can help.

Thanks. I broke the code. I had placed Icon links of the desktop of each user BUT the link I set on my wife's was not to win mail but to win mail Hotmail and that is a different program. I cleared it and now have both running straight win mail and my wife is smiling again...
