Windows 7 HP and XP-Pro on dual boot system; [D:\ and C:\]

new to the Forum, this is only my second reply.

This reply might be a little late for Lanthus20 but may help others (?).

I did a fresh install of Win7 a couple of days ago.
My previous setup was XP-Pro on partition C; and Vista on partition D:.
I formated D: running in XP. Then reset Boot manager etc.
Using Windows Easy Transfer prog I saved all XP-Data etc onto an external 80GB hard drive (USB connected).
After clean install of Win7 onto partition D: iI again run Windows Easy Transfer, with the USB HDD connected and accessed from Win7. After 10 minutes or so (9GB of data) I had all my old settings and folders back.

Now, when I activated Windows Live Mail this morning I got a HUGE surprise!
My 5 email accounts were set up automatically, with the default account already activ!! All I had to do is to enter the passwords into the other 4 and all was live!
And after a few minutes of clunking, a total of just over 9,000 emails were back in the correct Folders (5 accounts 'deleted items' folders plus a couple of sub-folders).
WOW - well done Microsoft.

Deleting e-mails in WLM vs Hotmail & Outlook Express
Is it correct that WLM e-mails have to be deleted on an individual basis as I can find no tick boxes to select the e-mail(s) to be deleted or a delete "All"tick box, which is a standard feature in Hotmail or Outlook Express. In addition to WLM I am also running Hotmail and Shaw Webmail (OE) which...
