To GregS re:
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
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.
