    MS Live Mail Still in W10 1709

    For sometime I've read more than one article stating MS is no longer supporting Live. Just this past week I recovered my PC and installed the latest available W10 version. That being 1709. To my surprise and delight was MS Live email. I quickly converted ATT/Yahoo over to Live with zero issues. So with Live still present in the latest W10 version is rumors of its demise false? I find it easy to use and like the fact it is not tied to any browser. My browser of choice is Edge.

    Looking forward to your comments.

    This is why I believe the problem was in the MS upgrade to W10. I was getting notifications from MS - click here to upgrade to W10. I delayed quite a while because of negative publicity about it, but maybe should have waited longer. When I did select
    it, it ran but didn't change the email program.

    The same thing happened with the W7 computer which was Windows Live Mail. That's why I still have Windows Live Mail and it sounds like others have lost theirs.

    Thanks again for all of your help and advice.

    How to transfer Accounts+Mails+Contacts from Vista to Windows 10 Mail?

    Hi Threebean,

    Thanks for your reply. You confirm what I had found out.

    Even more in my case MS didn't reply properly except asking me what I use: MS mail or MS Live Mail. After I answered that I use MS Mail (above in red), no further reaction.

    It seems that W10 Mail and Windows Live Mail are incompatible too!! So why asking what I have been using?

    This is really unprofessional !!!

    Since Mail on W10 is TOTALLY USELESS, on my W10, I decided to use Thunderbird. Now I have problem with conversion of my mails and contacts. From Thunderbird Support page I found out there is a 3rd party app doing the conversion for some 49U$ +VAT. Since
    it seems me very expensive as for one time shot, I am looking further. If I find something I will let you know.

    Take care,

    Live Mail hasn't been updated since 2012 and is no longer supported. You could be leaving yourself vulnerable. Its not the only easy to use program, Thunderbird is still actively developed.

    Regarding Edge, I'm not sure about this demise you speak of.

    It is not clear what you are referring to.

    MS Account/Outlook Email Account can be accessed from a Web Browser as usual.
    You can also access that account with the Windows 10 Mail App, an Email client application.

    It's Windows Live Mail 2012, the Email client application that is not supported anymore and did not come with any version of Windows. It was a separate optional download in the MS Essentials package.

    Maybe I miswrote. I meant the demise of Live. Thanks for replying.

    The Live I am using was included with W10 and remained when I update to version 1709.

    I am away from my PC. If not Live it must be Mail. I access it from the PC’s Toolbar.
