    Re: Windows Mail & Windows Live

    What do you mean by Windows Live? There are a whole group of Live programs
    (mail, calendar, photo gallery, messenger, etc.)

    If you mean Windows Live Mail, both are email programs and newsreaders.
    WLM is newer, works better, and replaces WM.
    WLM can access Hotmail/Live/MSN email accounts, which WM cannot.

    When you install WLM, it will automatically copy over all of the WM
    accounts, contacts and messages.

    No rerouting required. It's all done automatically for you.
    The best way to see the differences is to try it out.
