Thank you both for responding,
Yes, my default at the moment is O.E., because I cannot get WLM on my
laptop. I can sign in at the WLM web site using laptop but I wanted it on
desktop to save going to the site. I used to have it but my computer crashed
and now I can't get it back. Now when I use O.E., sometimes I want to save a
special email to a folder away from O.E., and now they open in Word (I have
Office 2007). I don't like that because on all the email opens in Word, I
can't click on a link I may want to go to in a saved email in Word, it's
very frustrating. Even if I could stop that I would be happy. I've also
downloaded the web installer, same thing I cannot continue with the
installation because it tells me I already have mail installed but I know
for sure I do not..
I have been to download.com and installed the installer file, but after I
agree to everything the next dialogue box "choose Programs you want to
install" and everything has a green tick next to it, Messenger, Mail, Photo
Gallery,Toolbar,Writer, Family Safety Microsoft Office Outlook,Microsoft
Live add in. When I click on the mail I'm told I already have it installed,
but I don't. When I navigate to Windows Live folder in Windows Explorer I
find the Windows Live folder there, but nothing to do with mail, I think
that is all Messenger etc. stuff. Does this mean I cannot install it on my
laptop?., if not I hope I can change the way saved emails open in Word, it
drives me nuts. I can use my windows live on the desktop computer.
I would appreciate it if you would tell me it can be done or not, so I can
then try to find out how to stop my saved emails opening in Word.
