Re: Where can I access Windows Mail emails?
Actually, I did not specifically recommend that you download
Windows Live Mail, although I offered it as a possibility. My suggestion
was basically for you to simply add your work email account to
whatever email program the other computers already have.
It sounds like you may have downloaded Windows Live Hotmail instead
of Windows Live Mail. You can uninstall that Hotmail program if you
don't need it.
Why can't you simply add your business email account to any existing
email program on all of your computers?
Most email accounts are not tied to a specific email program.
Whatever business email your Windows Mail program downloads
can also be downloaded with any other email program.
