A venerable email client that’s stood the test of time
Windows Live Mail was last updated in 2012, having been superseded by the Mail app in Windows 8 and 10. However, despite Live Mail’s comparatively old-fashioned appearance, the two programs are largely the same.
Windows Live Mail delivers the three-pane layout that many email users, including us, prefer to more modern but more minimal designs. It supports RSS and cloud-based email as well as POP3, and makes it easy to send attachments and work with multiple accounts.
If you like Microsoft’s way of doing things but find ultra-streamlined Windows 10 apps too limiting, the classic Windows Live Mail remains a sensible choice.
The below points help the users to find and install add-ons and resolve issues regarding add-ons on Windows Live Mail:
Using Setup CDs and websites
Using Setup CDs and Websites
Add-ons can be installed with the Windows Live Mail through several options. Out of which the two important methods are downloading from websites and installing from Setup CDs. Support websites providing licensed add-ons are available in the market. Users can easily approach these websites and download the add-ons of their choice. The second method of Setup CDs offer direct installation of the add-ons. The users need to purchase a copy of the Setup CD from the manufacturer in order to install the add-ons.
Before installing an add-on the user should be aware of the system requirements of the add-on that is about to be installed. If the minimum system requirement required by the installed add-on doesn’t match the configuration of the PC, then the add-on will not perform properly or completely. In such cases, installing a different version of the same add-on that supports your system configuration will fix the issue.
Add-ons may sometimes come with errors that cause improper functioning of Windows Live Mail or the add-ons itself. The latter one is a minor problem that will not affect the proper functioning of the Windows Live Mail. It just disables the add-on and all other functions associated to it. For example the MIDI background music will not function if Windows Media Player is not installed.
