Some Help?

Does MS need to make this so complicated?

I also have the same problem with Office Student and Windows 7 in Windows Live Mail. I found that if I try to email an open document from MS Word it will work on the third try and continue to work as long as I don't close WLM. Why it works on the 3rd try is a question. Perhaps because I have 3 mail accounts in WLM and the 3rd account is a windows live.com account. The live.com account is not the default account.

The IE8 "send link by email" and "send page by email" were also a problem as they were grayed out. I found this helpfull post in another forum:

In IE8 go to, Tools - Internet Options - Programs tab - Set Programs
button - last option, "Set program access and computer defaults"
(W7-specific) - select "Custom" and click the double down arrow at far
right - set all three to the first option, "Use my current . . . " and CHECK
all three checkboxes (well, only the middle one applies to Windows Live
Mail, but it can't hurt to take care of all three while you're doing this).
If you've set Windows Live Mail as your default email client in the normal
"Set your default programs", this will enable the "Send Page" and "Send
Link" features in IE8. There's something more specific in IE8 with that
"Set program access and computer defaults"

I'm sure I am not the only person with this issue, but can't seem to find the answer. Google is no longer my pal on this issue, so am I mad or is it that simple to fix!

I am about to give WLM the BOOT and send it to the junk pile. I think Windows Mail for Vista will work and it is very much like OE.

If I am in Word 2007 and try to send an email directly from there, it won't work until the 3rd try when it works as expected. Whats happening there then?

If you do not have a live.com account as I do and it is not 3rd on your list of accounts as mine is then my assumption of the three trys is not valid. You wonder why MS can't get it together and we are all beta testers for them.

I've installed Outlook 2007 and have imported all my emails from Windows Live Mail. Unfortunately Outlook will not import my email acount settings over - it says no files found. Tried doing it manually and managed to sort out my BT email account ok, but my tesco settings dont work.

Is it too much to ask of MS to enable a bit of compatibility. It would seem easier to import accounts from an Apple Mac!

Is there any way to import these settings automatically from WLM or the iaf files I also have stored?
