9.7. Windows Live Mail (WLM)

In Windows Live Mail the COBRA Explorer is needed, so it shouldn't be deactivated.

There are settings that WLM looks like Outlook Express.
But this is not true for the menu bar.
Since Windows Live essencials 2012 the menu is in the new ribbon technology like in MS Office 2007 and later.
But even with the new look WLM can be used via keyboard shortcuts.

You'll get a list of keyboard shortcuts for WLM on google.

The following settings are in menu View:

Please first in "message list" select "one line".
This will show every message as one line.

Now disable the reading area/Lesebereich.
This will increase security because otherwise the mail will be displayed in a preview window.

If you don't need the calendar you can also disable it there.

Some tipps for using WLM:

By default you'll be taken to the inbox after you have started WLM.

With F6 you can switch between the message list, the folders and the quick view.

With CTRL+number keys you can switch to the different parts (CTRL+1=Mail, CTR+2=Calendar, CTRL+3=contacts).

And now have fun.
