Windows 7: Another answer to Windows Live Mail....

Another answer to Windows Live Mail....

I am not promoting anything here, just wanting to say that I was stuck with WLM after the depletion of any attached mail program when starting to use WIN 7. After being abused with WLM for a long time I came across OE Classic Pro (the software that cost money). There is a free side of the program but I never have found them to be worth the use or try period. And after reviewing the program, I bit the bullet and purchased the Pro version. The author was very helpful in gray areas that I had no idea about. After installing and transferring all into the new program (which works just like the original OE from MS) I wanted to uninstall WLM. I came across a thread in this forum that was very helpful but it was too old to make a post in the thread. Thus I started this one. Now I find out that WIN 10 has an attached mail program and the WIN 7 and Win 8 users got the short end!

I've been using WLM since I first started using Win 7 back in 2009 and have no complaints about it as it does everything I need it to do. What is it that makes you feel "abused" by WLM? What does OE Classic Pro do that can't be done with WLM?

Just small items that add up. Major nuisance was the calendar notice for the past year that it could not do (something) I forget. Then in the folder section, you go to work in a folder and it would move you to the top all the time when your working in a fold below. After using it so long other items that were a pain where looked over to continue working. I'm not say that OE Classic is the answer but after using OE for years it was nice to get back to the old school way. That's all. It is what it is.

PS, I like your avatar.... had that painted on my rear door of my van in the early 70's.. :)
