Windows Mail

Great tohave used thjis to get Windows Mail up with Windows 7. However, there seem sto be some differences to using it with Vista ;
1. Attachments seem to be accessible only by double clicking the mail item whereas under Vista a box appeared allowing one to view or save.
2. I have three alias's and when I reply to an email, Windows Mail always takes one specific one which is not the default. If I spot this then I can easily change but is there any way of making the default alias appear as the reply every time ?

1. If you have IE9, the issue you mentioned is a known bug. There is yet to have a fix or a patch for it.

2. I don't have WM anymore. If I remember correctly, after you've clicked Create Mail, look to the right hand side, you are given a choice of which account you are sending mail. Yes ?
Also, if the mail is addressed to alias #3, then your reply will bear alias #3 account. Yes ?

I often have this problem but only on the road. Unfortunately I am on the road every week. I can't send today from this Hampton Inn in GA but I could on Monday at the Hampton in Portland OR. I have always found this extremely frustrating. In an emergency I have to use Google Mail but I don't like to use it.
I have similar issues at different hotels when working out of town. One issue in particular is if the hotel has one of those login pages for the net that has to be refreshed and logged back in every 24 hours. The search page I use doesn't pick up on the re-login but if I bring up a Google search page, it does. It's very annoying to me. If I'm at a hotel for an extended stay, I usually request to not have to do the re-login every 24 hours. The hotel manager contacts their ISP about it, they call me and do something which over rides the 24 hour restriction.

Yes, I am using IE9 so hope that a fix becomes available. Regarding the alias, no - the reply alias is almost always the same and usually NOT the one to which the original email is addressed !

The only similarity is "travel" or changing your location. Those original posts had to do with sending mail from an ISP not providing the email service so you are "relaying" your mail through them which they don't like since you may be a spammer. So the email program provides a setting to authenticate outgoing mail. The situation you describe has to do with internet access and how long each person on the network is allowed to use it before having to log in again. When you asked, your computer's MAC address was given special permission to use the IP assigned to you for a longer time. Networking vs. sending mail, two different issues.

I was merely expressing my frustrations with hotels in my travels as well.

System Restore Just In Case...?

Will System Restore un-do most everything in case there is a problem going to Windows Mail?

Thanks....

Hello Donz, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes, it would undo all changes made to system files and folders if you create a restore point before doing the tutorial.

As for those who endeavored to upgrade to SP1 WIN7, All I had to do was re-install msoe.dll on the 64 bit side. All went well with a renaming before copying into C: Program Files/ Windows Mail, then renamed back to original name.


P.S. after installation of SP1 there was a message of restore point for a roll back in case of a mistake. thank goodness, almost overlooked.
