Same here, I enjoyed it! As to the "Take Ownership", It works perfect for files but does not for Folders. I think it may have something to do with my UAC settings which are at the highest possible level and SRP with the same level of protection, meaning full deny for all with no exclusions other than .lnk. Well I do have a few apps with allow rules.
Howdy Greg. Haven't been online for awhile as busy with life issues, like paying bills, food shopping, cooking and all those other unimportant, trivial matters... LOL! Sorry for being a bit slow in the uptake, but if you have a free minute, could you explain to me what UAC and SRO stands for, where they're located and how to set them at different security levels.

WinMail.exe is set to startup minimized and warns in my task tray with an icon when new mail is present and that's good enough for me.
Could you also please point out where you go to in WinMail to set this option?

After all our hard work, Akwexavante's installer, (back one page), will probably make my Guide redundant! In fairness to anyone reading my post, to make it more user friendly, I should really refer them to his installer link. I'll also be interested to test it and see if it has any issues with other mail programs installed like WinLiveMail, or with running sfc /scannow or MRT.

Even if it does replace it, it's been a really educational experience working out the various registry issues, and I've learned heaps from you. But even if nothing else had come out of it, I learned how to disable the WinMail splash screen.

Setting WinMail as default

To Ex_Brit re:
Quote:
I see no tutorial or link to one, on how to make Windows Mail the default email/news application. There is a fix for that here: Can't Make Windows Mail Default

I believe that some people think it still needs work but it worked for me in making Windows Mail the default mail client at least.
Hi Ex-Brit, don't know if you've looked at my guide to importing WinMail in Techspot forum, but when the steps there are used, on first start-up of imported WinMail, a prompt appears asking if you want to use WinMail as default.

I didn't read the whole post which your link refers to, but in the hypothetical situation where the prompt to set WinMail as default does not appear, after running the steps in my guide, would the workaround shown in your link fix this problem?

If it does, I'll add it into my post as a back-up in case the prompt doesn't happen, and anyone experiences problems in setting WinMail as default.

A New WinMail.exe installer is on the way with added registry keys to make things even better.

WinMail will become The Default Mailing Client and will open emails from the desktop in the next version faster and easier. Mailto htperlinks on webpages will open easier and faster too.

Not going to be able to resolve the Windows Mail Help issue without help from microsoft. Thats not going to happen!

The only i'm struggling on is a way to "Pin to Taskbar" from a batch file.

There has to be a way to do it.

Taskbar shortcuts are placed in the location:
C:\Users\LegalUser\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

but there must be some registry entries too because pklacing a Windows Mail shortcut here is not enough.

New Improved Version:

No I didn't spot those but will take a look for future reference. I just thought that a link to a "How-to" for default client would have been useful on the 1st post in this thread.

Thanks Guys.

You can do the installer with your way of getting winmail, which is keeping mostly Win 7 files for it. If I'm not mistken, his installer is just a zip file that automates the process. I mentioned doing this somewhere in this thread. Got a go PB, I'll be back this afternoon with more info on the questions you asked

HI, have just downloaded the WinMailFix from your link and tried to run it on a virgin bare bones copy of Win7 Ultimate, but it wont' install and keep getting the error message:

Error 0 running command\WinMailFix\WinMail.bat

Any idea why this would be so and how to fix it?

At what point do you get Error 0 running command do you get the error immediately you start the installer?

Since i updated the installer this am i have used it on three new builds and its run perfectly.

I googled
Error 0 running command and many people get this error installing numberous other applications on the Ultimate versions of both Vista and 7.

Some people have a norton or a Comodo product installed on Ultimate versions, could this be a coincidence.

I haven't tried this on an Ultimate version and not likely too in the future as i use Home premium only on new builds.

Adding another 203 Registry entries to the Installer after the W/E that i have found on Vista related to Windows Mail.

The error occurs as soon as the setup button is pressed.

No I'm not running Norton or Comodo on this installation. It's a bare bones virgin installation using Windows Firewall. I tried the earlier version with the same result. Also tried turning off the firewall but made no difference.

Then its the Ultimate Version itself thats causing it and i have no idea why. Its working perfectly on Home Premium.

I'll explore this further after the weekend but i don't think i'm going to be able to do much about this one, but lets see what i can come up with. If its a simple fix i'll do it but if its going to take up too much of my time i won't.

Thanks Greg. No urgency about answering the questions I asked, but at your convenience.

Forgot to mention that with the revised method of importing WinMail using all your regedits, and removing WinMail attributes, it even works with Windows Mail Live installed; and over-rides it, offering to make WinMail default on first start up.
