what exactly are you having trouble with? maybe we can offer some help?
Thanks for reply Mickey.

If your new live mail thing is better than previous mail thing, then I will eat my hat.

The so called ribbon contains mass's of stuff that I don't use and if it is possible to change, you have done a great job of hiding the facility to do so.

Well done.

No good, it said it can't be used as a later model is in use.

Or words to that affect.

I put on my Weird fish hat and came up with this;
Click Start > Type "Programs and Features" in the search box . Click the top item in the window > In the window that opens in the left panel click "View installed Updates" and scroll down to the Live windows Mail latest update and click "Uninstall" That should revert you to the oldd Windows live mail.
BTW Create a Restore point First just in case!

I thought it appears only under the "Windows Live Essentials" entry in the main Programs and Features list. That would be consistent with there being no mixing of programs from the 2009 suite with the 2011 suite. So you would uninstall WLE from P&F, reboot, and install the 2009 suite. You can use either the full installer (a large download) or the web installer (lets you choose components before downloading):
http://g.live.com/1rewlive3/en/wlsetup-all.exe (full 2009)
http://g.live.com/1rewlive3/en/wlsetup-web.exe (web 2009)

Keep in mind that you can't use Messenger since that program requires the 2011 version of WLE.

Thank you all lads.

I am considering my options.

The fact is, I was happy with O/E let alone the later models.
