I like that analogy. Mind if I use it?

I use the hybrid though. I have a WLM account as well as other POP accounts and use Outlook with Outlook Connector to access all of them.

Ok so, I'm trying out WLM. I've got two questions.

1. I want WLM to minimize to the windows 7 system tray when i close it so that it's continuously running but not on my taskbar. and I can just go to system tray whenever I hear the got new Email sound.


2. I have outlook. I am using windows live mail. Which is better or how are they different so I can decide which to use.

You can use Outlook with the Outlook Connector and get both.

I do not use Outlook Connector and I can check my live.com mail with Outlook 2007. XP, Vista, Win7.

Yes you can define an account manually and check your live.com email.

Can you sync your Live mail and contacts regardless of where the WLM mail and contacts are updated/modified? I.E. from your desktop/laptop Outlook, from any desktop with internet access and from your Blackberry?

P.S. Calendar as well, but I am not as familiar with that component.


Edit: I used to walk 5 miles to school, barefoot, in the winter snow, uphill... both ways. I just choose not to do it anymore.
