Still have same problem

I still am not able to change the TIME on my Windows Live email page-the DATE is always correct but the time jumps all over the place. My computer time and date are correct-I have talked to many tech. people and NOBODY can figure out how to fix this problem? I thought it would be so easy-NOT! This new lap top came loaded with Windows Live and I do not like it at all.
One more thing and I KNOW this will be easy, how do I change my font(like to "script" or "Veranda")to jazz it up a bit with a nice font and maybe a color also? Windows Live is so much more complicated (at least to me) than the Outlook Express.
Hope somebody can help me?
Thanks so much!!

Just wondering.

I thought I read this was a bug in Windows Live. If so we have to wait for Microsoft to correct that.

To answer your second question

In reply to: Still have same problem

on the second line down from the top of the live mail window, to the left of the tab called Home, is a dark blue rectangle with an icon and a down arrow. click on the down arrow and point to Options in the menu, a sub menu will open, choose Mail and left click.The dialogue box that opens looks very much like Outlook Express options, go to the Compose tab and choose your font.

Your first question puzzles me because the only date and time I can see on my Live Mail page is the date and time of the arrival of each message at my ISP inbox so the time will vary since the mail arrives at your ISP soon after it is sent by the sender and that time has nothing whatever to do with your machine.
