Features', click Microsoft Office Outlook, click "Not Available", and click
"Continue". This will remove Outlook 2007 and leave the rest of the Office
2007 suite alone. Windows Mail, like Outlook Express before it, has
absolutely NOTHING to do with Office Outlook. WM came from the division
that made Outlook Express and the ONLY thing OE has ever had in common with
Office Outlook is the name. Beyond that, they are complete strangers. What
you read about WM being a "predecessor of Outlook 2007" is pure fiction.
