I don't know Windows mail myself, but what is the difference between Windows Mail (Vista) and Windows Live mail (as I use in Windows 7)?
is a CLIENT application provided with Vista intended as a replacement for Outlook Express. Primarily serves as a POP client.
Windows Live Mail
is the mail component of the Windows Live suite and provides a IMAP compliant service as well as the client component for desktops, etc. Windows Live Mail allows for a users mail, contacts and calendars to be accessed and synchronized from the desktop client, any pc with Internet access and mobile devices such as Blackberrys. It is intended as the replacement for WINDOWS MAIL. Outlook 2003 and 2007 users can integrate Windows Live Mail access using the Outlook Connector. It allows the the familiar Outlook features set with Live Mail's remote access and synchronization.
There are a plethora of MS publications and help with Windows Live Mail. Use Google for your reading pleasure.
I will be switching all OE users directly to Windows Live Mail. The "Windows Mail" is nothing more that OE with a different name, IMO.
P.S. MS REALLY introduced confusion with the names "Windows Mail" and "Windows Live Mail". The latter is now referred to as "Windows Live Hotmail" because a common question was "What about my Hotmail?". It seems the original Hotmail has been morphed into Windows Live Hotmail.
Please don't start a flame over which came first.... chicken or egg. I eat both anyway.
