    When will I be able to download "Windows Live Mail 2017"?

    Since "Windows Live Mail 2012" is to end in Jan., is there and when is "Windows Live Mail 2017" available?

  5. Can't say I'm pleased, Can't say I like the Mail app. It's not that I don't like change but that I just don't find the Mail app as capable as Live Mail 2012. Maybe Microsoft could fix that but are they pushing those that want more than a bare bones email program to Office 365 Personal, and Outllook 2016 and the subscription revenue.

    So, what are our non-Microsoft options?
    Will any third party email client support the new Outlook system?
    I really dislike Thunderbird, so I'm looking for other options.

    You can use any web browser you like, to access your outlook mail online. No email client needed. You can also use a email notify program that will monitor any email account you have, checks your email every 30 sec's if you want too, lets you know if you have new email, then once you click on the email notify app, will bring you right to your outlook account ....on line. So you do have other options if you want them.
    I stopped using live mail long time ago....have no use for it.

    I dumped it since W8.1 and use Thunderbird. Copied everything from All my mail and archives.

    I have 4 different Hotmail addresses to attend, which are gathered in WLM, along with a GMail, a Yahoo and a personal server ones.

    I also need to download the emails on my hard drive to be able to access them offline.

    So none of your solutions work for me, as I need to oversee all of them simultaneously and offline.

    I guess if Thunderbird keeps working with, then I'll just use that... Do we know yet that it will?

  12. Been using the new Mail app for a while, as a reader i find it fine
    If I want to do any type of management on email then i go to the web interface as the mali app i find clunky for this

    Why does the email from MS have all the * in it, eg Outl*ook*.*com *Confused

    The way I read it WLMail isn't ending/being discontinued but being able to access outlook/hotmail emails, contacts & calendar via WLM is, MS are suggesting using the built-in Mail app for these accounts but I dislike it. Currently access these accounts on my iPad which I hope continues.

    I too am asking a similar question regarding this subject. I have been using WLM for years and before that Outlook Express. Within WLM I access 4 different email accounts seamlessly. My domain email, my isp email, an old Hotmail account and a Windows Live Mail email. One program has it all. I am a bit confused how this change will effect me ? My guess is the Hotmail account will not be accessed ? Outside of my domain email this account is very important to me. I don't want to go online to check it.. So will WLM stop accessing my Hotmail ? I'm guessing all the other will still work ? But if it is true that my Hotmail will not work I need to find a nice free program that can replace WLM and take care of all my needs in one program.. HELP thanks Joel

    Joel: you and I are exactly in the same situation. In short: WLM2012 will still work, only not with Hotmail/MSN/Outlook email accounts.

    I'm trying to figure out what email client will work with, but no one seems to know for sure just yet. I'm thinking Thunderbird, but I really can't stand that piece of software. One example why? You have to delete an email account to be able to change its password. UGHH!
