You posted in the Vistaheads forum, which apparently does not recognize the
difference between Windows Mail - which is a part of Vista - and Windows
Live Mail, which must be downloaded (from http://download.live.com
installed separately. And, since the headers of your message don't tell me,
I must ask you: Are you using Windows Mail or Windows Live Mail?
Vistaheads simply relayed your post to the Microsoft public news server and
put it into the newsgroup for Windows Mail. But you said, "but Windows Live
Mail does not seem to recognise its existence". If you really mean WLM,
rather than WM, then your question should be posted here:
If your question is really about WM, then click here:
Either of those will "cut out the middleman" and post your question to the
newsgroup where Vistaheads would relay it, anyhow.
