Well Brit, I just changed it back to black in the compose menu and now the replies are in the black font also and not the light blue. So I guess it's working normally.

Over the past two days I must have sent myself a 100 emails trying to figure it out..
I never got so many emails in one day from someone I like so much...

Thanks for your input.It prompted me to tinker some more with it.

How weird, but then Windows tends to be weird in any case...LOL.

Now the next thing I need to find out is about the junk folder.
I was wondering if I could d/l and install the latest definition file from Microsoft.

Is it even a valid idea being I'm running Windows mail in Windows 7 and would it even install or would it create big problems.

Any ideas on that?

See what Windows Update offers, but I doubt it will be possible. Can't you just create one and use Rules?

I tried update and it shows nothing.
I'm not gonna mess with it.

I can use the rules as you suggest and I have been since I got it running.
It's not that big of a deal because I don't get that much spam.

Yes, best leave it alone. I use another email client anyway.

Well Brit, I also have Thunderbird but always liked OE.

I have windows XP on another drive and can boot to that but I rarely do.

Thunderbird is O.K. but I really liked OE and while TB filled the void I'm glad to get this running...I'm more comfortable with it and can set it up the way I like with signatures and stationary...

Anyway, thanks for your help....

SECURITY???Now I'm Not Sure..

When I got Windows 7 I was sorry to see OE gone so I got and used Thunderbird..Which isn't that bad and close to OE...

Now that I have installed Windows Mail in Windows 7 I felt like I was back home again with OE..

But, as I use it I notice that I have big security concerns about it.

First, it allows you to open suspicious emails..Thunderbird blocks the content of suspicious emails.

Second, A friend sent me a short video clip and Windows Mail allowed me to open it without scanning it...Thunderbird scans files with MSE when opening them.

Of course, OE didn't do any scanning either but I was used to that.
And that was always a big complaint with OE...


I know I don't have to use it but I would like to hear what others have to say about this.

Thanks Guys...

~In WM if you want to, you can go to Options> Read> In Plain Text
(fwiw, I prefer to openly use the Preview Pane and also have WM set to read it in the format it was sent, which my close nit family of friends always use HTML anyway because of it's convenient therefore valuable benefits)
~Also you can set in Options> Security> Do Not Allow Attachments To Be Opened That Could potentially Be A Virus, etc....
~Also on that same tab you can set it to Restricted Sites...

Anyway, most of which I don't do since for me I consider them to be a nuisance to my experience, rather than a problem, but that's just me in my bullet proof setup, ymmv!

Besides, most AV's have an email plug-in, for instance I use the stand alone AV of NOD32, and that fully protects the WM email client even if I turn the plug-in off, it still gots me covered.

Sure MS doesn't support WM anymore and won't update it - Big Deal is my attitude about it, although sure, I wish they did.

Long Live WM <vbg>
