Change the decimal value of the "SpecialPollInterval" to 3600 to adjust every hour (3600 seconds). Microsoft may change it back to weekly or daily at times like when you install updates but you can always fix it again.

The Windows Time server box can be edited directly. I use time-a.nist.gov or time-b.nist.gov. Just left-click and backspace to clear the name displayed and type in another name followed by pressing "update". That will test it and add it to the drop down list if it's not there already.

BTW, I have an ISP which seems to prevent the windows time client from reaching any servers so when using that ISP (Covad's T1 service and router) I've added the time client provided by NIST.gov as it seems to get through just fine. Just not as convenient as Windows Time Client. Windows time works fine when using dial-up or when traveling using any wi-fi hotspot or cellular service.

Thank you very much for this simple to use tutorial! My dad drove 120 miles this morning with the hopes that I could install windows mail on his new tower. He really didn't like using windows live mail. I am so glad that about 15-20 minutes after he arrived, the computer was set up, the instructions were easily followed - and I a get all the atta girl pats from a very proud dad. Thank you so much for posting this!

I need to reinstate Windows Mail on my 64bit seven. Maybe I am missing something here, do I need to install WM or are the files already available/installed on the seven machine and only need to be modified ?

The files are already there. There are two "Windows Mail" folders in the 64bit version of Windows 7 which are installed as part of the installation process.
  • One is in the normal 64bit Program files. This is the one to which you apply the steps of the tutorial.
  • The other is in the 32bit Program files(x86). Do NOT touch this folder.
The only file that needs to be modified in the existing Windows Mail folder in Program files is the msoe.dll as shown in Step 4 of the tutorial. Make sure you download the 64bit msoe.dll file.

Just to recap. Microsoft did an update quite a while ago and made Windows Mail inoperable hence the new file 64bit msoe.dll file to cure the problem.

Is this likely to happen again with an another possible update making Windows Mail inoperable again?

No one can definitively say that it will never happen again. However, the probability is extremely rare. All of the other files in the Windows Mail folder are Windows 7 files, and they would be automatically covered by normal Windows updates. So if it ever did happen again it would have to be like lightning striking twice in the same spot. And even if it did happen, all you would need to replace would be the msoe.dll file with an msoe.dll file from the Windows Mail folder of a Vista operating system that has had the new update applied to it.

I would like to reinstate Windows Mail. But the problem now is that since I have been using WLM since the last few days all my emails are in that format. What can I do ?
I would also like to reconfirm with actual users of Windows mail, that all storage folders are in one place and can be copied entirely to different computers and would be readable/usable there. i meant between Desktop and laptop ?

Most problems can be solved by carefully reviewing the tutorial. However, judging by the error message you're getting, it sounds like one of your email programs is open while you're working in Windows Explorer and it wants you to close the program. If they're already closed perhaps you should reboot and don't open them again until after you've completed the tutorial.
