win7 64 bit

1st Don't see Windows Seven Forum listed anymopre so how to post new to there? I installed Windows Mail in Win7 as have dome many x before without problems. Now works but nit listed in default programs and main issue is Mailto doen't work in FGFG or from any web page. Will "Install Incredimail or Windows Live so that it's set as default mail client, then go to Windows Mail and select from it's options that this is the default." solve my problem,? Thanks

Win Mail sort of works - NO Spell Check or Calendar

Hi, I'm looking for help with getting WinMail Spell Check & Calendar to work. My Win 7 computer is 64 bit - I copied files from Vista 32 bit, maybe that is the problem? WinMail will open & I can send mail from it, but SpellCheck says: "This language is no longer available for spell checking. Please select another in the spelling options dialog." Not sure how to fix that!

Also, does anyone have the WinMail install files in 64 bit & 32 bit they could send me or give a link to?

THANKS to ALL on here!

OK, I got SPELL Checker to work. I had to select another language other than English in Options first, then go back & re-set it to English - now it works fine!

Still need help with getting integrated Calendar to work from button in WinMail Program though!
