I use XP operating system and IE8 on my PC.
Tried using Windows Live Mail to amalgamate my 2 email addresses.

Put a short cut to Windows Live Mail on my desktop but when clicked on it signed in automatically even though I was not signed in on my hotmail or servers email accounts. I have no facility to sign out of Windows Live Mail .
Therefore no security on my PC to stop anyone accessing my emails!!


Is this Normal ??


Any help you can give me - just feel like uninstalling Windows Live Mail

It's probably just a Windows Live Mail's setting. It is enabled by default to keep you signed in for convenience. You can turn this off by:
1)Opening Windows Live Mail
2)Click on the Accounts tab
3)Click Properties up at the top
4)Click the Servers tab
5)Uncheck the Remember passwor check box
and your problem is solved!

I installed the whole Live Essentials just to help you, so I hope it worked (and that you haven't uninstalled it yet)!
