An Alternative to Windows Live Mail

  Border View 16:21 05 Jun 2017

I have used Windows Live Mail for ages. But now it seems to be playing up. I understand Microsoft and phasing it out. Can anyone please suggest an alternative.

I should have mentioned that I run with Windows 7 Home Premium.

Take a look at eM Client. It's excellent, and it's free.

You do have to register it for a free license I believe and the free version allows the managing of two accounts. However it is a lot like Windows Mail and very easy to port existing accounts over.

I use Thunderbird personally, but it isn't the most user-friendly and is nothing like WLM was. It's more like Microsoft Outlook.

I really like the look of eM Client. Would it be best to uninstall Windows Live Mail?

I've installed eM Client and find it excellent. I shan't uninstall Windows Live Mail until I've figured out how to transfer my contacts from my main email. Strangely enough theyve come over on my second account. Will enjoy exploring. Thanks again.

The more I use eM Client the more I like it. Thanks FE
