    I recently downloaded Windows Live Mail 2011 thinking it was just an upgrade to Windows Live Mail but I found it was completely different. Can someone tell me how to go back to Windows Live Mail.

    It actually is an upgrade to WLM 2010. As with many upgrades (Win XP to Win Vista, then the ultimate WIn 7, or Office 2003 to Office 2007 to Office 2010) there are changes that take place. This is progress. WLM 2011 is taking a step closer to the appearance and usage of the Office 2007 and 2010 product, Outlook. It is not quite as full featured as Outlook but it's appearance and operation is very similar. That is why you see the changes in WLM.

    This is a direct download of Windows Live 2009 (wlsetup-all.exe) in it's entirety.

    I too installed the upgrade, it may be almost the same as the previous version, but not quite. Now when I open it, Calender and Today appear on the right hand side and I have to use the bottom scroll bar (left to right) to read the complete message.

    Is that the way it's supposed to look?

    If you click on the calendar link on top bar, it closes it. I personally hate it, so will stay with 2009.

    Yeah, right now I don't particularly care for the layout (WLM & Photogallery) of 2011, I liked the 2009 layout & function much better.
    But I've already installed it so I will stick with it for a few more months & see if it will grow on me. :

    Uninstall 2011, then get ahold of the full offline download of 2009 before it too disappears.

    I believe if you go to the View tab in the ribbon you can customize how WLM looks and opens.

    As can be seen I have Calender view selected, but can easily turn it off here. I can also change the look, etc. WLM has been changed to incorporate the ribbon interface similar to Office 2007/2010.

    Thank you Roderunner. I had to click on the View tab, Calender pane appeared, when I clicked on it the calander disappeared. I hope this is permanent and I don't have to go through this each and every time I start WLM.

    Thanks Ted, that's exactly what I did. Thanks again for pointing me to this option.
