    See if this helps with your scrolling issue:
    WLM Scrolling Stationery

    As for Scrippy, the web site says you need a minimum Outlook Express 5
    or Outlook 2000. Although WLM is based on OE, it's not the same program
    and plug-ins/add-ons for OE don't work with WLM. You might ask the
    author to update his program.

    have to answer you the second time, the first message isn´t showing up here,
    don´t know what WLM is doing.

    thanks for your interesting link, but WLM hasn´t a function to make or see
    the source, so it is impossible to make a colored scrollbar.
    all the wonderfull functions from OE are NOT in the new one, and this is to
    bad,

    thank you so much for helping me,

    have a nice day,
    hugs,
    Petr@

    Windows Live Mail (WLM) lacks the ability that Outlook Express (OE) has
    to view/edit the HTML source in a message that you are composing. There
    is a workaround, but it is nowhere as convenient as in OE.

    1 - Start composing the message as normal.

    2 - When you get to the point when you want to edit the HTML, do a File,
    Save As to an EML file. Close the message (X in the upper right hand
    corner).

    3 - Open the saved EML file in Notepad.

    4 - At this point you can edit the HTML code. If you edit the text in
    the HTML portion of the message, WLM will automatically update the plain
    text portion when you send the message.

    5 - Save the EML file from Notepad, then double click to open in WLM.
    You can then send the message.

    6 - The saved EML file can be deleted.

    Note: If after opening the saved EML file you make some changes via WLM
    and decide that you need to do make further source changes, you will
    need to save to a different EML file, as the current one is locked by
    WLM and won't let the Save As update it.

    Neither do most other email programs. Email, itself, was designed in the
    days of text, and sending anything other than plain text using email
    requires programming tricks. I suspect that the WLM programming staff cut
    some corners to get the client out on schedule.

    Hi Michael - you wrote

    "Although WLM is based on OE, it's not the same program"

    In what sense is "WLM based on OE", other than its they are both email
    clients. Contrary to popular belief OE was not the first email client;-)

    I don't see much OE legacy - user interface is different (that's no bad
    thing, if you want an OE lookalike try TB), mail storage is different (thank
    goodness), contacts/nab are different (good - all contacts are stored in a
    common format irrespective of how they came to be, bad - some commonly used
    data in OE not in WLM)

    Re: *****windows live mail and scrippy and colored scrollbar*****

    My take on it is that they are about 80% the same program.

    If you look at the Tools, Options, you'll see that the dialogs are very
    similar. A few items have been moved around, and the verbiage is a
    little bit different.

    Although the user interface is a bit different, I'd say they are very
    similar when comparing to other mail programs.

    WLM even retains an number of internal OE quirks. That includes

    - the hiding of WINMAIL.DAT attachments
    - using the OPEN rather than default file association for attachments
    - how it handles attachments regarding file extensions and MIME content
    type
    - using the default mail program for e-mail replies in newsgroups rather
    than itself
    and other things.

    If someone had given me a copy of WLM without telling the program's
    name, I would have guessed it was OE7. Or maybe OE8, with Vista Windows
    Mail (WM) being OE7.

    There certainly are some differences. Some new features, some lost.

    I don't know how fare back you go with OE. But the differences between
    OE4 and OE5 are on a par with the differences between OE6 and WLM. For
    example, the DBX files were introduced with OE5. OE4 used the MBX/IDX
    files that it inherited from the IE3 Internet Mail and News (IMN)
    program. OE5 introduced Identities and WLM went back to the OE4 model.

    The use of EML and NWS files goes back to IMN. Although for performance
    reasons, IMN and OE aggregated them into MBX or DBX files for regular
    use. But all these programs supported saving messages to the EML/NWS
    format and reading them standalone.
