Are you sure it's not Lysergic acid diethylamide instead of acetylsalicylic
acid?

That's a pretty rye remark...

I think most people have simply given up on you and are watching from
a distance, somewhat amused by the show.

At least for me, on occasion ;-)

A victim of Ergotism? That would explain a lot.
Unless I'm confused (nah, can't happen!), LSD is the psychoactive
ingredient in the ergot fungus. Or is that what you also were saying
(told you I might be confused)?

I was thinking more of her being on some sort of psychedelic trip, but
you're correct about ergot fungus.

I meant both: the trip and the fungus. But mostly, it was an excuse to
make a pun (I am admittedly incorrigible).

The experiences reported are so unremittingly bad where no one else has
that much trouble (in both the depth and breadth of the problems), that
I am beginning to side with those who think we are dealing with a subtle
troll who has caught us hook line and sinker (a bit of mixed metaphor,
sorry).

Are you really this dense?
Microsoft doesn't support any program it doesn't develop. Additionally MS
doesn't support a lot of older programs. Try calling them and getting help
with Windows 98.
Of course it doesn't. I was being sarcastic in that MS wont allow us to use
WindowsMail on W-7 but it's OK to use Thunderbird and other Newsreaders.
MS doesn't support Adobe Photoshop, or Adobe Acrobat, or ACDSee, or
Acornis Backup Software, or Malwarebytes, or AVG, or Qimage, or Garmin
Mapsource Programs, or Adobe Dreamweaver, or Pinnacle Studio, or thousands
of other software programs. Why would you think they would support email
programs they don't write or offer?

Where did you get the idea that Mozilla doesn't support their software?
OE will work fine if you have Windows 7 Pro. Install the Windows Virtual
Machine, then install XP Mode and OE is there as part of the XP install.
On second thought, I don't think you should try this.
I don't have W-7 Pro. Now how about telling me how to get WM to work on W-7
again?

Several have wondered if there is anyway to use OE (or WinMail in Vista)
in Windows 7.

This page addresses some of the potential means to do so:

http://www.oehelp.com/OEnWin7.aspx
I bookmarked the site. I was going to get OE and some other files off my
old XP PC and turned it on tonight. It wouldn't load. It's been sitting
covered in the office for some time. It wouldn't boot from the Recovery
disks that came with it from HP. I have to take it in to Staples tomorrow
and see if it can be fixed.

Because Microsoft has moved on.
Odd that M$ moves on to inferior products and don't give their sheeple a
choice between inferior WLM and WM or OE.
If you want to use OE then you need Windows7 Proffesional (The dearest
version( that will let you install OE ubder "WinXP Mode"
I wouldn't pay M$ one more dime tword W-7.
I use WLM on two laptops and it works OK for me (Mail and Newsgroups)
Download the Microsoft Window Live Essentials to get WLM working, then go
to "add remove" and get rid of the "Messenger" component.
I already downloaded it after the System Recovery. It came on the W-7
machine, installed by HP. It's very inferior to EO and WM.
IMHO you would be better served to ;
a. Put up with it. or
b. Learn to use an alternate OS and software, that suits your style and
ability
HTH

(BTW it's Explorer, not WE, and I am not a computer expert or geek)
Yeah, but with the people I know we call it WE in text rather than have to
spell out the 2 words when communicating by email. We all know what WE
means.

There you should find Windows Live Essentials.
Click on it and select uninstall.
You willthen be offered
Repair
Select components to uninstall
Make a chioice, if no good uninstall the lot, re-download Winows Live
Essentilal and start again


Aint going to happen unless you buy the most expensive Win7, or go to EBay
and buy a WindowsXP CD.
Maybe, in desperation, I'll try Thunderbird again. :*(

Thunderbird works. Your Windows Mail doesn't. Once you get used to T-Bird,
you'll like it more than anything MS has produced except, maybe, Outlook.
Perhaps you would be happy with Outlook. You have to pay for it, though.
Outlook has no newsreader feature. :(

You have been given a LOT of alternatives. Your position is, evidently,
that people help you install an unsupported program under windows 7 that
Microsoft has decided, for whatever reason, should not be used under
Windows 7. Despite being told that this is not going to work properly
over and over, you continue to harp on the fact that you WANT it to
work, therefore it must be made to work.

If you are that attached to the previous software, then buy Vista and run
it.

Where have you been? :))) You can't buy Vista anymore. I called every
place within 50 miles and was told the same thing by every store. MS does
not allow the stores to sell Vista, only W-7 can be carried. Of course I
can take a chance on Ebay but I've heard too many horror stories about
software sold on Ebay.

Bob Hatch said:
How's this stance workin for you so far?
Well, so far I can't find a copy of Vista to have installed in the W-7 PC.
I would like to just get rid of W-7 altogether but buying software from EBay
is chancy. I wouldn't know it were a legal copy either.

Look, if Windows Mail was INTENDED to work with Win7 it would have been
INCLUDED with Win7. So as it WASN'T included with Win7, isn't supported in
that OS, it "ain't" gonna work very well or at all in Win7. How is it so
hard for you to figure that out? Give it up and just either suck-it-up and
install WLM OR a third party SUPERIOR email client, such as THUNDERBIRD,
and get over it. What the hell is the big deal with Windows Mail that was
ONLY designed for Vista and inferior to boot? It's JUST EMAIL, MOVE ON!
..Do something different! But quit bitching about getting Windows Mail
that was designed for Vista ONLY, working reliability in Win7! (Without
tweeks and constant tinkering!) Adapt for Christ's sakes and install a
superior 3rd party email client. Good-God-A-Mighty! Sheesh! You bitch,
whine, and complain about an email client that was NEVER intended for
Win7, so should not be expected to work with it reliably, which obviously
it doesn't. G-I-V-E, I-T, U-P! You want support from not only HP but MS,
for a product that was ONLY intended for Vista, but now forced by you into
Win7. Ya ain't gonna get it, cuz it was NEVER intended for Win7. Get it?
Get it? Get it? If not, please package your computer up in the original
packaging, and send it back from where you got it, as you have NO business
owning one at this point anyway. I know people I have felt were six times
as ignorant as yourself, yet they could still grasp the simple concept
that if the software wasn't designed for the OS they were running, chances
are, it will never work reliably or at all! So what's your excuse?
Tell me why you think insulting people will help? Has it helped you in the
past? All it does it kill these NGs faster than they're dying off by
themselves.
WLM bloated compared to Windows Mail, Outlook?? Really? How so? I use WLM
on 6 machines including in a virtual machine within Linux, and hardly find
it "bloated." Please explain further how it is so bloated, and how it just
doesn't work.(?)
I didn't say it didn't work. I said when there are a lot of email addresses
you can't get them to download into one folder like in OE or WM. I don't
like the interface. I don't like anything about it.

I haven't bothered with Live
Essentials, and if I did, then I could see bloat perhaps, but not with WLM
stand-alone. Nope, you're barking up the wrong tree there.
I didn't see the stand-alone email/news part.

MS has nothing to do with it.
Here in Australia you can still buy a lap top from retail stores with
WinXP.
Go to a small computer shop and you can get a PC built with whatever OS
you want.

I can't tell you how to do it again, because I never told you before. I
don't use WM or WLM. I use Outlook for mail and Thunderbird for NG. When
MS quit supporting OE in Windows 7, I didn't gripe and whine about it, I
just switched to T-Bird and went on with life.
