    Hate new Windows Mail

    I found Outlook Express so easy to use. All my contacts were viewable on the
    left side and all I had to do was double click on a name to write a email.
    Now (because auto complete does not work) I have to click Compose, Click To:
    double click on the name, close the contacts folder and THEN I can write my
    mail. Why make something so much trouble when what I had in XP worked just
    fine. I heard somewhere, if it's not broken, don't change it. I always
    found Microsoft Outlook more complex. For business it is great but just for
    writing email, Outlook Express much easier. I would advise anyone not to
    upgrade to Vista just because they would lose Outlook Express

    Auto complete works fine. TOOLS menu|OPTIONS|SEND tab. Check it.
    One step. Use it regularly here.

    I've tried it about 5 times and mine does not work even though I have it
    checked to use auto complete. So much easier anyway just to double click on
    a person's name.

    Auto-complete does begin working after you've sent to that
    recipient once already.

    I don't know why a couple of extra clicks in WinMail should
    cause you to want to dump all of Vista.
    It's not an issue for me since 95% of the emails I write are
    replies.

    I still have to use my old PC as Hotmail with HTTP is not supported by Vista
    Mail, what means that you have to go to the internet to open the mails all
    seperate.
    You are also not be able to load OutlookExpress 6 to overcome this problem
    as it is not supported by Vista. I think my Vista till now is a waist of
    money and not word bying.
    HTTP was invented by Microsoft and if it is not changing, sorry I will go
    back to my old 2000 PRO, what works till now as a shunshine.

    I have to admit that it's a shame that so many people are against Vista
    because of this flaw.

    > HTTP was invented by Microsoft and if it is not changing, sorry I will go


    Correction, the HTTP protocol was _NOT_ invented by Microsoft.

    > back to my old 2000 PRO, what works till now as a shunshine.


    And I have nothing against 2000 at all myself. As a matter of fact, I have
    a Windows 2000 Advanced Server machine sitting right next to a Windows 2003
    Server Enterprise machine on my network at home.

    It does what you have had previously typed in the To field. You can add a
    contacts list to the Side bar. The list will be next to the OE window rather
    than in it.

    And it is Outlook Express.

    Re: Hate new Windows Mail

    I can't figure why Microsoft couldn't have given the option to click View,
    Layout, and Contacts (like Outlook Express) in Microsoft Mail. Don't think
    it would have cost them anything !!!

    quick-listed contacts' list has been left out of the "parent" form, Windows
    Mail???any "fix-it" answers would be appreciated
