Windows Live Mail was not a part of Windows XP SP3, or any other involuntary
update. In fact, at this point in time, it is a voluntary install. Most
likely it came in with an install of Windows Live Messenger. If you recently
installed the latter, and did not read the prompts carefully during the
install, you could have gotten it that way. Otherwise, if yours is a shared
computer, some other user installed it.
