I just hate this program. In addition to all the problems I'm having with that Windows Live Mail, I discovered this morning that my animated graphics are no longer animated! Microsoft took that capability out because of royalty problems - I use animated graphics all the time, in email, in making front page banners, and in making webpages! I tried some of the so-called 'fixes' that are mentioned on the internet, and none of them worked, one of them messed up my image files! You have to be so careful in what you download and you just cannot get help for something that has been removed - there is no answer to this problem that I can see.
The email program that comes with Win7 is a joke. You cannot send flyers that other people have sent for you to email to everyone, because when the flyer gets to the recipient it has lost its formatting and also any graphics that were in it. My answer to this query is that they made the new email program to simulate a word processing program so that you could make those flyers yourself, otherwise they won't go the normal way - copy, paste to email, send - they have to be made fresh in the email you are sending.
That's just the couple of things I've been dealing with the past two days, who knows what else I will run across. Win7 is not made for people who want the program to run like XP - it's made for people who don't have any real work to do on their computer in my opinion. I am at the end of my rope and don't know what to do!
Words cannot express my anger and frustration and how much I miss Windows XP and Outlook Express.
P.S. I forgot one other thing, this program forgets my passwords on a regular basis, I am always having to sign in again, grrrr!
PPS. Does anyone know if I can put XP on this new computer and how I would go about that and where I would find it, since the hard drive on my old computer is having problems so I can't use that.
