Thanks quite a bit there Sassa

Now back to our dicussion on WLM...I did some research and it appears (correct me anyone if I am wrong) WLM doesn't support Exchange but IMAP is!

So to summarize the differences betwen Outlook and Windows Live Mail

Outlook is really for businesses who need exchange, advanced contact control (using Active Directory mostly for that), and profile management

WLM doesn't have exchange but it has IMAP AND uses it by default (which is superb), contact manager is enough for the average person, and profile management is basic as always

Outlook for the buisness
WLM for the average person

To define some terms...exchange is a mail system used for businesses, IMAP is a protocol very much like POP3 except it updates email on the fly...no waiting to send or recieve every now or then

Im using Outlook 2007 to check my Gmail. I have a mailbot that checks for new mail every 10 minutes and tells me I have mail .. I have x new messages, then proceeds to open Outlooks inbox.... a slick operation when you see it for the first time.... the only downside is it wont bring me coffee and OJ in the morning...

It is one of those apps that look daunting at first but very elementary to use...untill you dive down into some of the advanced features. Outlook's auto-account setup has come very far...2003 was okay, 2007 is superb, and 2010 is even better than 2007 and it is a TP
