Could it be that just certain places(web sites) that this is occurring?
For me "Yahoo Finance" does not honor the "visited color" but "Google
search" does.

You're right, the web page's coding can over-ride local settings. You
may set a font style and size, for example, but a web page can be coded
to ignore that setting.

I always thought it was the other way around, with web sites able to suggest
fonts and colors but web browsers able to ignore those suggestions if the
user desires.

I'm only familiar with IE and Firefox, so I'm not sure about other browsers.

WLM can be operated with or without signing on to Microsoft services.

No matter what mode you operate WLM:
- supports POP3, IMAP, Http email protocols
- all messages (mail and news) stored offline on the local pc
- all contacts and calendar data stored offline on the local pc

If operating WLM in signed on mode (to MSFT servers)
- Contacts and Calendar for the MSFT account used to sign on are also stored online at people.live.com and calendar.live.com in
addition to a local database for the respective MSFT account.

Email is not tied to Hotmail. It supports as noted above all email account protocols (POP3, IMAP, Http). Hotmail type accounts
(Live, Hotmail, Msn, Outlook.com) can be configured to use Http or POP3. Http mirrors (like IMAP) the folders and messages on the
server via synchronization unlike POP3 which only downloads messages from the account's server Inbox.

Email accounts operate independent of connecting to MSFT servers with a MSFT account (fka Live ID).
- i.e. you don't need to have a Hotmail type account to use WLM, nor do you have to sign on to MSFT servers to send/receive mail
with any email account.

A Hotmail type account is not necessary to sign on to MSFT servers since any email address (except a minute few protected domains
for MSFT partners) can be registered as a MSFT account.

Ya, just don't know if I want to use WLM.
If you're at the point of deciding on a mail client, don't; WLM-quotefix
was created for those who either have got used to WLM but want to avoid
irritating their correspondents, or who are obliged to use it for some
reason. AIUI, anyway.

Yes, sorry for the wrong choice of words. I do understand WLM can be used
with most ISP's.

Kind Regards
