Please explain how this is done if you can.
See the quote below. I *think* all you have to do is copy it from a
Vista machine. But take that with a grain of salt, since I've never
done it personally (again, I don't like Windows Mail); get
instructions from someone who has done it.
MS is really pushing people to switch to Macs.
As I'm sure you know, I strongly disagree with you.
A mail/news client easy to use and intuitive like OE or WM could be
installed and let people decide for themselves if they want something else.
Why deprive millions of us of what we were happy with?
Because the great majority of people will use what they get, and not
even realize they have other choices, let alone look for them. Those
millions of people may have been happy with Outlook Express, but many
of them might have been much happier if they had tried and used one of
the several available problems that were better for them.
And also realize that when you say "deprive ... us of what we were
happy with," it is not really accurate. Despite the difference in
names, Windows Mail was essentially a new version of Outlook Express,
and Windows Live Mail is a still newer version.
Microsoft confused millions of people by making the very bad choice of
naming two programs as dissimilar as Outlook and Outlook Express with
such similar names. So calling the new Outlook Express by the new name
of Windows Mail was good thing to do. But alas, they then confused
things further by calling the newer version Windows Live Mail.
Outlook doesn't include Newsgroups I was told.
You mean Outlook doesn't include a *newsreader*. That's correct.
But as far as I'm concerned, there's no reason why we should choose to
use a program that has multiple functions. It's best to use the
program that's best in each regard. I use Forte Agent 6.0 as my
newsreader, but although it also contains e-mail capability, I don't
use it for that, since I greatly prefer Outlook for e-mail.
