Is the patch needed for Windows 10? The MS article says it's only for Windows 7 & 8.

Hi Folks,
I use Windows Live Mail Version 2012 (Build 16.4.3528.0331) on both my pc's running Win7 Home Premium 32bit to send & receive Gmail.
I never heard of any upgrade till I came here.

Can anybody tell me the answer to this question? My ISP and default email is through Verizon, how will my WLM 2012 client be affected? I do not use a web browser version of WLM.

Confusing to say the least... I use Windows live mail as I have two msn.com email accounts that I need to monitor at the same time. One for business and one personal.
I went to my outlook.com and saw this in the task bar "https://bay181.mail.live.com/default.aspx'

I did get the email and updated but not sure it it has done anything or will. I am not sure where this is all going.

think it may be a good idea for anyone currently using Live mail to consider the alternatives. It appears to me that Microsoft are rationalizing their portfolio of legacy software and rather that wait for the end of life of these programs it's better to at least prepare to move.

One option is the totally free Thunderbird, The companion application to the Firefox browser, which is fully compliant with both POP3 and IMAP email systems and will import WLM emails.

It will do everything that WLM will do but lots more too

I applied the patch to a machine of mine running Win 7 and afterward I was no longer able to send/receive mail via WLM 2012. I re-installed WLM 2012 and can now send/receive mail so I will continue using it without the patch as long as it continues working.

I have tried alternatives such as Gmail and Thunderbird but find I prefer WLM.

Yep relying on m$ products and not wanting to upgrade to 10 makes very little sense to continue doing

So your saying I should look into eM Client or something and drop WLM ? I don't want to go to 10 either...sounds like a horror show for folks..I'm still loving the heck out of my Dell E6530 and Win 7 Pro.

Thunderbird will work on any Windows from XP upwards

Another method is to go to something like GMail and work online. Set Gmail up collect all your other older mail accounts and organize them into one place. You can of course use Gmail with something like Thunderbird if that's the way you prefer to work.

If you choose to use IMAP as your protocol it also allows you to sync multiple devices, (phones, tablets, PC's Even Macs), automatically
