    WM works on W-7 and few hoops had to be jumped through. All the WM files
    from Vista were once again moved under Program Files on W-7. The folder name
    was changed to Windows-Mail instead of Windows Mail. I added the - with no
    spaces. The correct 64-bit msoe dll was added removing the 32-bit dll. The
    correct dll is larger then the 32-bit from Vista. Then I created a shortcut
    (WinMail.exe) to the desktop, clicked it and WM opened. That was all it
    took!

    I sure hope this helps others who may not know to replace the msoe dll and
    install it under Programs Files, not PF (x86). No need to tolorate WLM if
    you don't like it. :)

    Though presumably you won't receive any security fixes?

    She won't as Windows Mail is now Windows Dead. Personally, I don't like
    OE, WM or WLM. T-Bird is much better in many ways.

    Why would she need any security fixes. It is a mail client. OE which many still use
    stopped giving any Security fixes log before 2006 when the OE team was dissolved on
    the Campus..
    Nothing at all wrong with using VM on Win 7

    Having never used WM or WLM, I gather their heritage is in OE, which was
    a mail client that needed a metric shitload of security fixes, I
    wouldn't want to run any mail client that could display HTML messages
    and possibly invoke javascript unless it was receiving fixes ...

    If you'd learn how to configure them, all can prevent HTML.

    As I don't run OE/WM/WLM I have little need to learn how to configure
    them, but I'm sure they can. The issues I have/had with OE was that it
    out of the box it was configured to send HTML, display HTML, run scripts
    and be pretty lax about launching executable content ... all the least
    safe options by default.

    I'm sure you wouldn't mind sharing a bit of generic information on how to do
    this or possibly a link to the information you have?

    For OE - Under Options, the Read Tab, check the box that says "Read all
    messages in plain text". Then go to the Security Tab and check the boxes
    that say "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could
    potentially be a virus", and "Block images and other external content in
    HTML email" Of course the last one or two would not be needed if you are
    reading all messages in plain text.

    Presumably, you could further restrict OE at the Security tab by clicking
    the Radio button for "Restricted Sites", instead of the "Internet Zone".

    WLM doesn't have the Security tab in the main options box, but makes it
    available from the Menus Button/Safety Options in the upper right corner,
    next to the Help? button. The same settings are available there as the
    Security tab in OE. I'm sure WM works about the same as the other two, but
    can't confirm because I don't use it.

    Yeah, who needs security, anyways? Using outdated, obsolete e-mail
    clients is much better!

    I would like to know how this works also. I've tried several times to
    get WM to work in W7 without success.

    Copy all the WM files from your Vista machine and move them to the (x86)
    programs folder if 32-bit. If your new PC is 64-bit, get the correct .dll
    for 64-bit and you can add WM to the regular Programs folder. It was easier
    than I thought but the security crap on W-7 is a total aggravation to work
    around.

    Outdated? WM? Since when? Millions of people with Vista are still using it.
    I have no need of the useless (to me) features WLM contains.

    Umm - I'm using Win7 Home Premium 32bit and am tempted to return from WLM
    Version 2011 (Build 15.4.3002.0810) to WM, but feel uneasy about using WM it
    when it is unsupported with security fixes. Is there a significant risk
    assuming other security precautions such as firewall, anti malware and anti
    virus are in place?
