Windows Live Mail 2011 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running Windows 7 Professional (x64).  I installed Windows Live Essentials about a week ago and I am compelled to say that I am really disappointed in Windows Live Mail.  I particularly miss the ability to configure my toolbar with the options that I use and to remove those I don't.  Related to this is the fact that every time I add an icon to the top menu bar to Mark All it disappears when I restart the mail program. 

    As a consequence I uninstalled Windows Live Mail 2011 (only) thinking that it would revert to the previous version of Windows Live Mail.  Instead it removed Windows Live Mail entirely and I was forced to perform a restore to get the previous version of Windows Live Mail back.

    Did I miss something along the way that made my installation different from the way that it was intended?  I am willing to reinstall and try again if I receive any good suggestions.

  • Hi,

    You did not miss anything. The previous version is replaced by the new version and there is no option to downgrade. Uninstall it will remove the entire Windows Live Mail. 

    I understand that it is an inconvenience for you. We will report this as a customer feedback to proper department.
