I have been using WLM for the last three months - long enough to give it a
fair chance of impressing me. I am using the latest version. Like you I find
it clumsy and awkward. It is also inclined to leave me looking at the
spinner and, randomly, a message saying it's not responding. Even Windows
Task Manager is sometimes reluctant to 'End task'. Windows Mail suited me
fine. I am currently looking at replacements including Thunderbird.
I hope I'm wrong but I don't see that Microsoft has left a way for users of
WLM to transfer their messages, contacts and account settings from WLM to
Thunderbird or any other email client.
