Default Download for Windows Live Mail Email Client

For many years I have used Windows Live Mail. However, I bought a new Acer
laptop last week and have been unable to install it because MS no longer
supports it. I tried to transfer it from my old computer but not having the
..exe file in my Downloads folder I am stumped. Can anyone offer me guidance
in this regard. I am computer literate but by no means an expert. My thanks
in advance.

Alaric.

A week or so ago I tried to install this download from majorgeeks on two
different PCs: one with Windows 7 and one with Windows 10. But it failed to
install, giving a fairly uninformative error message.

All I wanted it for was as a vehicle to read .eml files that had been made
on another PC and use its "export to MS Exchange" menu to get the email
messages into Outlook's .pst file. Outlook (incredibly) doesn't have its own
"import from eml" option, nor can you drag and drop eml files into an
Outlook mail folder because there is no converter present.

Eventually I had to download a paid-for program which can read eml files
from a folder and generate a brand new pst file containing the messages in a
mail folder. From there it is a simple matter to tell Outlook to open that
data file in addition to the one it is already using, select all the
messages and drag/drop them into the folder in the "real" pst file - then
discard the temporary pst file.

I think one has to be careful as some downloads are just the stub loader and
rely on the files being on Microsofts server which they are not. Given time
I might be able to find a version with all files from before the removal.
However to be honest I use Outlook Express now hacked to work on windows 10
7 etc, which I think cost about 20 Euros to register for three machines.
Not official but the only problem I have found with it is that Microsoft
trash it on a major update to windows 10.
Other than that you can still use Thunderbird, and if not blind you can use
many other clients like Outlook Express clasic and others which are look
alikes but sadly don't work with my screenreader.

The mail app in windows is usable but I don't think it does news.

I'm using Outlook express at the moment on windows 7.

The problem with Thunderbird is it uses different keys and hads just one big
tree view which I find annoying just like Live mail. Why Microsoft and
others removed identities is a complete mystery. its also a mystery why they
went with ribbon menues which seem to most of us to be a cobbled together
mess of bits of toolbars and dialogues all sho horned into to tree view.

Outlook is not free though its apart of office though you can buy it stand
alone. it is however a bit of a sledge hammer to crack a nut and I find it
irritating.

Web based interfaces mean that if you have several addresses with different
providers you have to keep logging in and out of different sites and of
course the format can be changed at will which is really irritating.

The outlook express that will cost you for keys but works well on 7 and ten
is
https://www.dropbox.com/s/8zzk0ox2kv..._v2.1.exe?dl=1

Live mail I seem to have is.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/rc41elc990...aller.exe?dl=1

I don't know if it relies on seeing microsofts site or not.

As a plain email client, it's just about OK.

But the Lightening Calendar add-in is pants with .hotmail accounts -
can't seem to create entries on the server side (and therefore propagate
them to a mobile client).


Not tried with hotmail accounts, but managed it ok with a google one.


Haven't the *zilla foundation just dropped Thunderbird from their suite ?
Which struck me as the most bizarre way forward, given that Outlook is -
and always has been - the centrepiece of MS Office.


ISTR they moved it from active development of new stuff to maintenance
only a while back.

I was looking for an "outlook express" clone for windows 7 and 10 but you
have to pay for it.....can't beat outlook express ......


I think you can.....Mozilla Thunderbird.

hate it... just tried OE Classic ...not bad but not as good as OE ....


It's all down to preference.

I use Thunderbird at home and Outlook at work, I prefer Thunderbird. If
it wasn't available, I'd use Outlook happily enough.

What about web based email Gmail?!


As I run my own mailserver, if I want to use webmail, I use Roundcube.

I'm using Thunderbird as a poor replacement for Outlook Express which is
also no longer available. My biggest moan is that Thunderbird keeps
freezing and has to be closed and re opened regularly.

Plus I cant work out how to just delete newsgroup threads rather than
archive them or how to block individuals.

in a sense you cant delete a newgroup thread, just choose not to see it.
IIRC CTRL K is a good start on that


To block individiuals use message-create filter from message

I would be tempted to do a clean install of it then, since that is not a
common behaviour.

Deleting - there are a few options. On more recent versions just hitting
the delete key on a posting will remove it from your machine. Hitting K
will kill a thread - next time you switch back to the group you have
killed threads in, they will not be shown. Shift + K will kill just sub
threads.

You can do much more with filters. Have a look at :

http://wiki.diyfaq.org.uk/index.php/...cess_tips#Tips

for some examples.

Sadly on latest versions it is.

Worse is seems to be using a common core with firefox, so when won
freezes, so does the other.

The last three incarnations of Fierfx and thunderbird are the most
freeze/crash prone I have ever used.

Those who want slavery should have the grace to name it by its proper
name. They must face the full meaning of that which they are advocating
or condoning; the full, exact, specific meaning of collectivism, of its
logical implications, of the principles upon which it is based, and of
the ultimate consequences to which these principles will lead. They must
face it, then decide whether this is what they want or not.

Or start by disabling all add-ons, as I've noticed some of the older
ones can cause problems with recent thunderbird releases.

Perhaps this is something specific to the linux version? I have not been
getting any additional reports of problems from the 200 odd desktops I
manage running that combo under Windows...
