Windows 10 Mail vs Live Mail

I understand that Microsoft is abandoning Windows Live Mail, in favour of Mail.  I am currently using Live Mail. What do I need to do?

Re: Windows 10 Mail vs Live Mail

Basically, nothing. Live Mail will still work but will become increasingly outdated. At present the big change is that WLM will no longer sync your contacts and calendar without a work round. Have a look at this.

Windows Mail is a poor replacement. You might in the end want to switch clients to something line Thunderbird which is compatible with windows 10.

Re: Windows 10 Mail vs Live Mail

What I have done is use Win 10 mail for my Hotmail account as it syncs calendar & contacts & use Windows Live Mail for all my other accounts. WLMail will continue to work but wil not be updated, you may want to download the offline installer for future reinstallation as once the software become obsolete this month the web installer will disappear.
