Windows Live Mail and .EML files date stamp
With Windows Live Mail, as with Outlook Express, one can drag emails to Explorer folders and save them as .EML files.
When using WLM with Windows 7 RC, if one simply selects (highlights) the .EML file that is in an explorer windows, the .EML file modified date is updated to the current date/time, even without actually opening the .EML mile. This causes problems with sync and backup programs, since one can inadvertently re-datestamp .EML files just by highlighting them, thus marking them for sync/backup (and also one loses their chronology).
This behavior does not exist with WLM or with Outlook Express under XP -- the file modify date is unchanged even if the .EML file is opened.
Does anyone know whether/how this behavior can be turned off.
