But why wont WLM work? isn't it supposed to?
Yes, of course. It's supposed to and it does. It's difficult for us to
provide you with help on your problem unless you give us all the
details including the exact verbatim text of any messages you get.
I've looked at other news
cients that don't have Newsgroups. I've looked at one with that don't allow
multiple NSP accounts.
NSP? What do you mean by NSP?
I looked at one that would take a MS VIP or software
writer to understand. I didn't buy W-7 with the notion to scramble looking
for a news/mail program like OE or WM.
Which e-mail client or newsreader you use is your choice entirely. But
let me point out that you probably think that Windows Live Mail came
with Windows 7. If that's what you think, you are wrong. Your computer
vendor may have included it in what he sold you, but that was his
choice; it didn't come with Windows.
Here's my standard message on this subject:
Outlook Express has been gone for several years. Windows XP was the
last version of Windows to include it.
Windows Vista had Windows Mail as its replacement (it's essentially a
newer version of Outlook Express), but that is also gone in Windows 7
(however it can be brought into Windows 7 from a Windows Vista
Windows 7 comes with *no* e-mail or newsgroup program. Although many
people object to this, I think it's a step in the right direction,
since it leaves everyone more free to choose whatever program(s) he
likes best. There are many choices available, both from Microsoft and
from third-parties. Some are free and some are for sale. Microsoft has
Windows Live Mail (which is essentially also a newer version of
Outlook Express/Windows Mail, with still another new name) available
for download for free and Outlook (a different program from outlook
express) available for sale, either alone or as part of Microsoft
Some people will tell you to use Windows Live Mail; others will tell
you to use Thunderbird; still others may have other recommendations.
My advice is to ignore all such recommendations. I personally use
Microsoft Outlook for e-mail and Forté Agent for newsgroups, but you
should try several and choose what *you* like best, rather than make
your decision based on what I, or anyone else, likes best (or even
what Microsoft suggests).
Personally I don't like either Windows Live Mail *or*
I have TB. I can't have more than one account per NSP on it.
Again, I don't know what you mean by TSP.
We did that and replaced the right dll for 64-bit and it wont open. How do
we get WM to open on W-7 64-bit?
Sorry, I'm the wrong person to ask. I've never done it myself. But I'm
sure someone else here can tell you.
We already did that several times. We checked and rechecked and removed and
replaced the accounts.
Understood, but *something* you have done is clearly wrong. I've done
it successfully and I know many others who also have.
