There are quite a few ways to make Mail a bit more like Outlook Express, what are you missing?

  mobileman1953 15:56 03 Jul 2007

the main reason i thought about changing is windows mail takes an age to download e mail where as outlook express was a lot quicker

above message should read to open e mail not download e mail

Have you introduced or changed you email anti virus scanner when you moved to Vista?

Do you mean this sort of slow? click here

no it is the same email scanner as i used in xp and yes problem is as listed in your link

I suggest it's worth the try of creating a new user account and deleting the old one as recommended in the link. NB the warning to save your files to the new user account before deleting the old!

Windows Mail is terrible to use. I had the dubious please recently when Outlook was playing up, and I do use it on my laptop. Both machines are new with the accounts only set up once. And these machines are not exactly low speck. You could die of boredom waiting for it sometimes. Outlook however is greased lightning.
