As far as I can see nothing goes via a Microsoft server. You fill in your POP/IMAP/SMTP details just the same as other mail clients and you do NOT need a Microsoft account to download it or use it.

Okay. I was under the impression from reading the info from Microsoft that your computer needed to be logged on to a Windows Live account in order to send or receive e-mail.

AA4PB. It may. I never log out so haven't thought of it. :-)
But I do like the format it uses.

From some further reading on the Internet concerning Windows Live Mail it appears that they are sending advertising to your desktop, scanning e-mails for keywords in order to provide targeted ads, etc. If it's true, it sounds like Microsoft is becoming another Google. Anytime someone gives you something for free, look out!

How do you think Facebook makes their money. They are super snoopers. Many are so nieve about this though.

Windows 7 Home Premium has one built in. From the start menu use the search at the bottom and type in  \Program Files\Windows Mail/ select the .exe file and it will install the in house mail client. It is very very similar to the old Outlook.

What it does is install Windows Live Mail.  It could be built in, but from my experience, it downloads it from the web.  Microsoft combined the outlook app, hotmail and other e-mail functions/programs into what is now Windows Live Mail, and yes, it is looking to be just like Google in what it snoops for.

It's simply (to me) another reason to avoid IE and WLM like the plague, just as you should avoid Google Chrome unless you reconfigure it not to snoop--something that can be done, but not easily.  With the way the shift to cloud computing is going, independent e-mail client programs are on their way out anyway--that's why those clients aren't being updated anymore. 

That's one reason Mozilla's offerings are my choice--but they also lend themselves to snooping.  That snooping just isn't as prevalent as the offerings from other clients.

I got a W7pro. computer cheap at Dayton to replace the rapidly deteriorating XP machine.  Lot of people recommended the Thunderbird so I went with that.  Seems to work OK for me.  The setup was simple, enter email address and password.  It went out and found the settings for the particular service. I wish it had a delete button like on OE.  So far the only way I know is to right click msg. and select delete.  But maybe I am not using it right as a newbie.  I have basic email needs so it suits me, for free.  Free is good.  No hassles.

That's the method I use, and prefer; however, another way to delete a msg. is to highlight it (single-click on it instead of double-click as you would to view it) and hit the "Delete" key on your keyboard.  That puts the msg. in your "Trash" folder.  That's just about like IE as I recall (been years, though).

As for discontinuing updates to Thunderbird, the last two updates I received (presently at 24.5.0) included feature updates as well as security ones (not all of which I was happy with, by the way).  From my observation, there's no indication that T-bird is going anywhere.

BTW, Thunderbird is no longer being actively developed or upgraded and has been that way for some time now. Its kinda a dead end of sorts.


Latest Version v.24.5.0, released: April 29, 2014.
Latest Beta v.30.0b1, released: May 9, 2014

Seems pretty active to me :-)

No issues here with Thunderbird for the past three years running Windows 7 Enterprise.
