Yes, Windows Live Mail. It's crap.

Thunderbird.

I respect that you have an opinion. Don't confuse that
respect with really giving a crap what it is.

You can try Windows Live Mail 2009. It can be adjusted pretty much the way
you like. I would stay away from 2011.
Thunderbird is okay if you like it.

No. The Microsoft replacement for OE is Windows Live Mail, and it
shouldn't be allowed to live. The closest approximation of OE 6 that I
have found is Thunderbird 2.

I already installed Windows Live Mail 2010. It seems more simple and
basic email program for a 64 bit plaform.

You using Forte Agent for the newsgroup - why not use it for e-mail too? It
works just fine. Then you won't inflict WLM on everyone else - please stick
to Agent for the newsgroups.

There's Windows Live Mail, but I hear that it's awful, and if you try
to use it in newsgroups you will get a lot of grief.

FWIW, when I got a 64-bit Windows 7 computer, I switched to
Thunderbird because Pegasus is not compatible (despite a statement on
the Web site).

Thunderbird isn't perfect, but what is? And it's a lot easier to use
than Pegasus.

I agree, I tried Windows Live Mail but for me it was horrible for
newsgroups. I switched to Thunderbird, took a little getting used to but
now I like it much better for newsgroups.

Opera is also an option, both for mail and news, thats what I use
In the news department it has a outstanding search function.
Before Unicode I always used Eudora.

Opera have an usb version so that no installation is needed:

Just unpack and run.

Why not just use Mozilla Thunderbird?

I tried Thunderbird & did not like it. I got used to WLM2009 (under XP), it
does what I want. I'm not so fond of some of the changes that came in with
WLM 2011.

Now I'm having fits over Win7, way more fits over things like "access
denied" all the time, than WLM (either version) ever gave me.

Yes, I agree entirely with the assessment of WLM, which I used for a
total of a week when I got Windows 7. I switched to Thunderbird for
email and news groups and currently am fairly satisfied.

If you are running Windows 7 Pro or above you download and install
Windows XPMode. This is a virtual program that runs WinXP Pro which has
OE installed in it. Doing some research with Google you will find some
instructions for attaching XPMode programs to your Windows 7 Desktop. I
have an icon on my Windows 7 Pro desktop that when I click on that
starts XPMode, loads OE, and OE-QuoteFix. It runs OE just fine.

Since I didn't like TB, I guess it's a matter of using the
personally-to-me-least-unlikeable program. :)

I have also been using Outlook for things I want to sync with on my phone --
where I do *not* *NOT* want everything I have in my general
mail/contacts/etc. IOW I use Outlook for my "mobile" stuff. At least, I was
doing that in XP, I haven't yet started doing it in W7 (until I get my old
computer back w/ the backup files I don't want to start mucking with data
that I'd then have to coordinate, yuck!)

I put Thunderbird on this XP desktop to try it out and I absolutely
DETESTED it. I am a dyed in the wool OE user of some 14 years and for
some strange reason, when I imported my email into T-bird, I had 300,000
kb's showing up in the Inbox according to Windows Explorer, but not
showing up in the program itself.

And I couldn't find any way to hide the read messages.......that really
ticked me off. So I uninstalled it and guess I will go with just web
mail on my laptop. And use this computer for news groups.

Or perhaps one of you kind souls can tell me how to get rid of the WLM
2011 prog and install the older one. I rather like Windows 7 and just
want to get it into *familiar mode*.

Other question........totally different. If I install that SourceForge
prog which changes Startup and Windows Explorer to XP style, is it
removeable in case I have to??? I much prefer the XP style.

Thanks.........Heather (aka Figgs)

Look at this post. See how it looks like you said the paragraph starting
with "Yes, I agree"?

Do not post to USENET with WLM2011,
