    My OS is Win 7 Professional 32 bit. Using the workaround referred to in various forums I was able to continue using Windows Mail, in preference to Windows Live Mail, until it stopped working following one of Microsoft's patch Tuesdays. I was able to get it working again by copying and pasting Windows Mail program files from a Vista machine that had been patched and using those instead of the previous versions. Following this week's patch Tuesday Windows Mail has stopped working again, and I assume I need to follow the same procedure as before, but I no longer have access to a Vista machine. If someone could please send me a copy of the Windows Mail program files from a Vista machine that has been updated with this week's patches I would be very grateful.

    My email address is royw@maltanet.net (I am using Windows Live Mail, hopefully for a short time only).

    Thanks and regards,

    Windows Mail in W7 any version is not supported. I suggest you stay with W L Mail, I think is the best. If you need further help, don't be afraid to ask.

    Doing all that patching makes your email client vulnerable in case you didn't know. MS is patching holes and be best to move on. Thunderbird from Mozilla is also an alternative.
    Had a hard time convincing my Dad that Outhouse Express is no more.

    Hello Bill,

    To be honest, now that I have been forced to use Windows Live Mail I like the current version much better than I did when I temporarily used the previous version some time ago.Now I think I just need to get used to WLM and the ribbon in particular.

    In Windows Mail, I could delete everything in the Deleted items folder with one click. Is there a way to do this in WLM?

    Please advise.

    Thanks and regards,
    Roy

    Yes, right click on the folder and select "empty". [2 clicks]
