    How can I reinstall Windows Mail


    I am running Vista Home Premium 32 bit. Windows Mail was removed because I
    was using Outlook. Something happened to the Outlook install and after much
    effort to reinstall Outlook I am giving up and want to try reinstalling Mail
    but don't see a way on the DVD to do that without going through the Vista
    install. Is there a way to just install Mail?

    It is not possible to uninstall Windows Mail.
    Go to C:\Program Files\Windows Mail\WinMail.exe, right-click on it
    and select Create Shortcut.

    Thanks, Gary. You are exactly right. I must have only deleted the shortcut. I
    feel like such a newbe.

    The shortcut gets hidden. Go to Control Panel | Default Programs and then
    set WinMail default there and I think that will unhide the shortcut.

    Hi, Tigar.

    FYI - and for newbies who may be reading along <g>: Outlook and Windows
    Mail happily coexist. No need to uninstall either of them. As I'm sure you
    know, Outlook is sold separately from Windows/Vista (often as part of the
    Office suite). Windows Mail is an integral part of Vista and cannot (by
    mere mortals) be removed or separately installed.
