Re: windows live mial 2015 (mial or mail)


 

I wouldn't bother with it anymore.

Its not maintained and it doesn't get the latest security certificates automatically anymore.

Yeah eudora 7 was really cool.

I did after the death of eudora 8 or opensource on old thunderbird contact qualcom and ask if it could be set for free, and released so some of us could continue it but was told that due to it using copywrited, and outdated libraries, and a really old programming language, even if those libraries were removed it couldn't be ported easily.

Which is a shame, eudora never crashed, it was quite stable and it never complained.

For its time it was basic crappy single function software but if thats all you need then well fine.

Does anyone use Eudora anymore? I learned it back in 97 when I first started teaching at the deaf-blind center. I installed it on my win7 machine and it worked for a while. Maybe I'll try it on my win10 machine. However, I get scared that big brother will blow it away like he did my outlook express. Anything he doesn't like, ya know.

I installed OE 6 on my Win 7 and a friend’s Win 10, and it seems to be doing fine.

This is not Microsoft’s, but it is just like the old OE.

Having followed this thread, I note that Microsoft stopped supporting Live mail in January 2016, it seems that, if the program was already installed on a Windows ten machine, it may still work, however, people may be dissapointed if they try installing it on Windows ten now and Windowsd updates may stop it in the future, who knows?.

We have to accept that Live mail is now outdated, I still use a ribbon version on a Windows seven computer, but it is getting slower as time goes by. For Windows ten I use the Mail app sometimes, but Thunderbird works fine, although I don’t reallyu like it,mainly because it means learning new stuff, but, once you get used to it, it’s tolerable. You can set it up to do all you want with different accounts etc.


Best Regards, Jim.

The installer for Windows Live Mail is the Windows Essential installer. If you run it and tab around, you will see check boxes to chec to install various Windows essentials programs. I believe Windows Live Mail is checked by default. I believe no other programs are.

Good morning,


It seems that you are speaking of windows live mail--even though you say live mial. either ribbon or non-ribbon; But when I download it, it perports to be windows essentials. This is confusing to me. I have a windows 10 machine with both windows live mail and windows mail and they are both very difficult for me. Whenever I install outlook express, windows just blows it away. Don't know what to do?

Here is more information:

I just looked at a ribbon version of Windows Live Mail I have on another machine. In the about dialog, the version number is what looks like a year of release. The build number looks like what would ordinarily be a version number. If I look in the properties of the installer itself, what is given as the build number but it's listed as the installer version. So, while there may be something newer, I ddoubt there is anything much newer.


According to Wikipedia, this is the last release:

2012 (v16.4.3528.0331)

I just downloaded the file and checked. If you open properties of the file, the installer, and look in the versions part of the properties dialog, the following version number is given:

16.4.3528.331


What number are you citing and where do you find it? Windows Live Mail has a version number and a build number. I don't know if there is anything newer than the version I uploaded. I don't remember where I got that version now. But that should be a ribbon version and, whether it is the newest one, I believe it is one of the last versions released.

Is it the ribbon or the menu version? As far as I know, that is the link to the ribbon version. I don't know if anyone has anything newer.


If no one sends anything, you can chedck on other lists.

I just checked on my Windows 7 machine, which is running a ribbon version. It is one of the build 2015 series and that build is a ribbon version. There are different versions in a build. If you want the 2015 version I have a link for, I can send the link. But let's be sure if you want a menu or ribbon version, as I said.
