Sorry, I thought the limited list of features were your definition of "match or better". But if that's the main criterion, doesn't Windows Live Mail do that as well?
Myself, friends and family do not wish to use Windows Live Mail, we don't want 'in the clouds' emailing.
Buried in the too-many-features of WLM there is a way to avoid the cloud: Don't sign in. You can choose that option in the options list. You will also only see your "not-signed-in" contacts list when you are not signed in. (Just don't use "working offline" as that makes it impossible to send and receive mail just as with previous versions.) Also, don't use "Photo Email" which stores the full-rez image in the cloud with a thumbnail link in the email.

That's a confusing question. Gmail is not a program so it can't be a default program. However, as Greg S suggests you can use the gmail "service" as the default IMAP account in any email program that includes IMAP (like OE, WM, or WLM). But when you set up your default program it will be the email program (WLM in the case of Windows 7) that is the "default".

Error message help

Got a problem. Did the procedure to enable WM, works perfectly with one exception - when I click on a link within an email, an error message pops up, "There was a problem sending the command to the program". Can anyone guide me as to how to correct this?

Thanks,
Gryphon

I'm not sure specifically about WM, but in general default program issues can often be fixed by going to the last item in Default Programs (set computer defaults) and under "Custom", choose the program you want for email and browser (WM and IE8) rather than "my current program". Hopefull WM will be listed there. Also, if you are using IE8 as your browser it may help to reset it (Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Reset...).

Nope

Thanks for the suggestion, I'd already done that, and am still getting the can't send to program error.

Gryphon, The problem you described is a recent event using the Windows mail program. It just started happening to me last week after using WM for more than a year. I suspect that the problem is related to security updates in Internet Explorer. I first noticed the issue after installing security update for windows KB2183461 which is an IE8 update. You could try uninstalling the update to see if it fixes the problem. I deleted the email message that was causing the problem so I am not able to test. You can always reinstall the update if it turns out that the update is not the problem. Just a hunch but at least it is a start.

Thanks for the info Mick. I got the links to be clickable by installing the updated version of WLM, then going thru the steps again. works perfectly now.

I thought you were using WM not WLM. Perhaps you mean WM and you followed the steps in the Tutorial which now contains an updated version of msoe.dll. Correct?
