Windows 7: Forced creation of a Live Mail account

Forced creation of a Live Mail account

Since MS took away outlook I have been setting up Live Mail. When trying to send a picture I've been getting a "Windows Live Error 80070057"

A little bit of Googling and it seems that others have made this error go away by creating a Live Mail account.

This ruffles my feathers. If we have an account with our ISP WHY are we being forced to create a Live Mail account...OK I think I know why but I don't have to like it.

Has anyone found a way around this?

I am pretty sure you can just attach the image (as you would attach any other document) to an email. I used to do this all the time on my earlier rig, which has Live Mail 2011 (the email client). And, I did not have a Live Mail (Hotmail) account.

There are two methods to send pictures. Open a new E-Mail and attach the picture. This will include the picture within the e-mail. The second is called Photo E-mail and it requires a Live Mail account. What it does is upload the picture to your Live Mail account and then send the message to your recipients with a link to the picture in your Live Mail account.
