Hi,Please ignore the last reply. Even though Microsoft does not let you download the old Windows Live Mail version 2011 any more, they have provided the latest Windows Essentials / Windows Live Mail version 2012, which is compatible with Windows Vista. I have tested it on my Windows Vista computer and it is working fine. Windows Live Mail program version 2011 and 2012 are similar to use.- So if you have not tried my suggestion in my first reply, please click on the Microsoft website below to download and install Windows Essentials / Windows Live Mail software:http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/essentials, then there, you can download and install the Windows Essentials software, which contains the Windows Live Mail program in it.- If you have any trouble downloading / installing the Windows Essentials program or if you have trouble using the Windows Live Mail program, please let me know any error or message.When you are available, please type at the box below, then click on the Send button below to communicate with me, so I can help. Thank you.
