Actually, Windows Live Mail is Version 2008 (Build 12.0.1606).
The version below is for Windows Mail.
After further probing, the shortcut that was pointing to "C:\Program
Files\Windows Live\Mail\wlmail.exe" (I think???) was replaced with
"C:\Program Files\Windows Mail\WinMail.exe". I always use the shortcut from
the Quick Launch bar to start the mail program and somehow it got swapped.. I
really don't know what happened. But I am sure that I have been using Windows
Live Mail. Because once I started "C:\Program Files\Windows Mail\WinMail.exe"
everything is fine.
BTW: I am no noob just for the record.
