That's not strictly correct and your post might worry some users. Here's the first part of the email that you forgot to paste:

In a few weeks, we will be making some changes to our email services that might impact your @outlook.com, @hotmail, @live or @msn email account. These changes will prevent your email from being delivered to the Windows Live Mail 2012 application that you use.

So, if you don't use a Microsoft account in WLM then there's no need to do anything and it'll continue to work just fine with regular POP and IMAP accounts from different email providers.

Well spotted Secret-Squirrel it is only if you use outlook.com, @hotmail, @live or @msn email account on Windows Live mail. I should have posted the full e-mail.

Email is pushing Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 users to upgrade to Windows 10. Am happy with Windows 7.
