windows live mail

by Mesaman2 / July 9, 2013 6:13 AM PDT

When I am forwarding a message occasionally when I click on the To: box to add recipients the whole task bar is covered with a black bar and my contact list is blacked out. I close the program and re boot only to have the same thing occur. What is going on here. Are messages sometimes encoded so they cannot be forwarded? I would appreciate any help that you can give me.

Just a comment here. I see lots of questions and complaints about Windows Live. Frankly I won't go near it after dealing with its issues over the past year.

Windows Live Alternative

Based on your experience what would you suggest as an alternate to Window Live Mail ? I am using Windows 7 on a 64 bit PC.
Thanks for your quick reply

Your choice, but I forgot something.

If forward fails, what's wrong with the old copy and paste to a new message?

As Microsoft drops the classic email client and goes web based, you can try Gmail, Yahoo web mail or maybe old fashioned email clients such as Thunderbird.

If you want to really make a mess, involve a computer.
