Removing Vertical Blue Line in Windows Live Mail

by ComancheDude / August 9, 2009 9:59 AM PDT

I have seen procedures for removing the vertical blue line from forwards and replies in Outlook Express, but not in Windows Live Mail, which does not have a "Source Edit" selection under "View" or "Tools."

These options do not exist in my version of "Windows Live Mail." Are you sure you are not referring to Outlook Express?

Note, however, that the menu bar is hidden by default; you must press the Alt key to display the menu, then follow Jeff's directions from there. (Tools->Options->etc...)

"Indent message on reply" was already unchecked, but I still have blue lines when I forward.
