> Microsoft have withdrawn windows live mail

Yes, Windows Live Mail has been discontinued by Microsoft and you have no way to download the software anywhere from Microsoft site, but it doesn't mean the existing installation no longer works. You can keep using the existing WLM on your computer, if installed.

Do you still have WLM installed on your computer?
