    I would like to uninstall windows live mail. I went to the control panel and could not find it. I ran a search on the whole computer and the computer could not find it. Can anyone tell me where it could be and how to uninstall it safely? I'm running Vista SP2.

    It's part of Windows Live Essentials. I don't know if you can delete
    just one program from it or not.

    And what link was that? Did you download this?

    Windows Live Mail (Overview & Features):
    http://get.live.com/wlmail/overview

    Make it the default e-mail program once it is downloaded.

    Try turning on HTML for mail. Go to Tools - Options - Send tab - Mail
    Sending Format section - click HTML (leave the other one for newsgroups set
    to Plain Text please).

    The post by mebob? This link?

    http://download.live.com/wlmail?wa=wsignin1.0

    Different link, but it brings you to the same Webpage I gave you. Is that
    the program you downloaded?

    Don't be concerned with what the link says, only what you see when you
    click on it. If you did indeed download *and install* it, you need to make
    it your default e-mail client in the Control Panel.

    What link are you clicking on to start your email program?
    Try: Start, All Programs, Windows Live, Windows Live Mail.
    It should offer to set itself as the default the first time you
    run it.

    I know almost zero about Live and Hotmail accounts so just a WAG. When you
    were transitioning to Bigpond, did you ask them to forward messages to
    your Live account? Maybe they still are.

    If that's not it, stick around for a suggestion from someone else. That's
    all I have, but I'm sure an answer is out there.

    Apparently you have a setting at your Bigpond.com account that forwards
    a copy of every incoming message to the @live.com.au address.
    Go to http://www.bigpond.com/redirecttowebmail , log in, and see if you=20
    can find the forwarding setting there.
