Thanks for the WL Mail 2009 download link.. I have put up with 2011 for far too long.. Takes up far too much Real Estate, is slow , wont open all Emails shown as downloaded in Inbox without re-syncing. Refuses to leave a Copy of Mail in the "Sent Items" , so every sent mail has to be downloaded again from Gmail so as to leave a Copy on my PC Client. Will not send photos from right click menu as an attachment.. Only way to do it, is to Create New Mail and add Picture as an attchment.. 2009 is much better.. thanks again..

Your welcome, and thanks for the information about the current state of 2011. Even though the calendar says it's 2011, the 2011 version from last year apparently hasn't been updated or fixed. (Perhaps someone who is using 2011 will add a comment...I find it hard to believe that the option to "leave a copy in sent items" has been removed. I do remember hearing that there was a problem with Junk mail filtering in 2011 which must be fixed by doing a repair via Programs and Features.)

I'm using the 2011 version and have no problems, and there is always a copy in the sent folder when I've sent an email.

The two mail programs I posted the links for are both called "Windows Live Mail". The older version (2009/2010) does not have the ribbon while the 2011 version does. WLM is the free mail program supported by Microsoft for Windows 7. "Windows Mail" was the free mail program that came with Vista and is not supported on Windows 7, so it would be difficult to revert to it on Windows 7.

Regarding the error message, the earlier version will give you an error message upon installation, whether you used the "web installer" or the full download. So in either case, you must fully uninstall via Programs and Features the 2011 version of "Windows Live Essentials" so you can revert to the older version of "Windows Live Essentials", which includes the older non-ribbon version of Windows Live Mail (not Vista's Windows Mail).

I would write down the account settings so you can set them up in the new (old) mail program. If you had been signing in to WLM 2011, your contacts should be preserved on the website "contacts.live.com", otherwise you should export them before uninstalling. The messages you want to save should also be exported for future import in case they don't show up in the new install.

If you currently have 2011 installed, you may be able to fix some of the problems by doing a repair via Programs and Features of "Windows Live Essentials". That is very easy to do and a lot less trouble than changing mail programs. If it doesn't fix the problem, you can always do the switch. Another reason to keep the 2011 version is if you want to use Messenger since 2011 is a mandatory upgrade for Messenger users.

I sometimes wonder what the problem really is with sent items. Unfortunately with WLM (both old and new) there can be multiple sent items folders. Each POP3 account has one and then there is another one in "storage folders". In addition, if you are using an IMAP server, it's possible for that server to have a sent items folder which can be viewed within the IMAP account. When people say they are having a problem, they seldom say the type of account and whether or not they are using mail server folders or mail client folders.
