How to uninstall Windows Mail?
I just installed WLM, and would like to uninstall Vista Windows Mail
(without disrupting WLM settings). WM is there in in it's folder, but
doesn't show up in Control Panel/Programs and Features? Help appreciated -

Hi ImageMan,

Sorry, You cannot uninstall Windows Mail. It is a part of Vista. When
you installed WLM, it took over as the default email client and replaced
all the WM shortcuts with it's. Other than taking up space, it will not
hurt anything to let WM sit there not doing anything.

Re: How to uninstall Windows Mail?
Partially incorrect..

WINMAIl still will come up in some cases...most notable MAILTO...

Even with mailto substitutions done via regedit and other usual methods windows mail still comes up.


Personally if I could replace the winmail exe with a shortcut pointing to OUTLOOK i would...but Im not sure thats a good idea anyway..
