OK you seem to be set up ok.

Now one question. How do you know you cant send HTML?

Only, Richard, because I realized that the URLs I had in my website were not clickable, SOME of the time. It seems that if I have "Plain text" showing in the "New Message" then they will NOT be clickable and it it shows "Rich text" they are. I want them all, to always be clickable no matter which email addy I send from, and all replies as well.

TBH, I running out of ideas. Why not try setting send news HTML and see what happens.

Are we having fun yet, Richard? OK, I set the "news" for Rich as well but that did not help either.

Guess just one more bug in WLM that we have to struggle with. OR go Thunderbird.

There are many free email clients. If you decide to try some, just make a system restore point, first so you can make a clean uninstall

To set the default format for emails in Windows Live Mail, how about the following:
Click on the down arrow beside the icon in the blue block at the upper left. From the dropdown menu select Options-->Mail-->Send-->Mail Sending Format-->HTML. That should set the default format for new messages to HTML unless that setting is contradicted by some other setting selected on the "Sending" page.

As to whether links inserted, including email addresses, are really links and not just underlined text, the link can be tested by Control-Clicking on it from within the draft email.

Thanks, fellow Booklover. If you look at the image I sent you'll see that I do have "HTML" marked for both Mail and News. I also have a check beside "Reply to messsages using the format in which they were sent" and YES, I think I should REMOVE that one. BUT, when I start NEW messages, it will not remember to use HTML format.

I apologize for not editing my post. At the time I posted I hadn't discovered P2 of this thread (I'm pretty new to this forum and not quite familiar with everything - apologies for not editing) but did see it later and should have edited.

Before I posted I created and sent to myself from Windows Live Mail a couple of messages with no special settings -- just what my defaults are -- what I posted. Before sending the message I tested both the email address I included in the text and the other links I included, using the CNTRL-click, just to be sure I could duplicate what I was about to post.

When I ctrl-clicked on the included email address from within the draft message, a new email opened with the email address as the addressee. When I ctrl-clicked on the link, I was immediately taken to that site.

That's really a puzzle about your WLM not retaining your settings. Right now have no further ideas but will see if anything occurs to me.
