Windows Live Mail Update

In case you haven’t noticed, Windows Live Mail got a small update a few weeks ago. Here are the details from the Windows Live Mail blog:

In particular:

  • Windows Live Mail can now properly import Outlook Express mail account settings that were transferred from a Windows XP to a new Vista or Windows 7 system using the Windows Easy Transfer wizard.
  • Some users had problems launching Windows Live Mail and we have addressed this. In some cases, after you closed Windows Live Mail, the application would appear to close, but the wlmail.exe process would continue to run in the background. That process would prevent Mail from launching in the future.
  • On Vista and Windows 7, Windows Live Mail wouldn’t connect properly to POP email servers using SSL. In particular, this affected some users of Yahoo! Mail.

The update is version 2009 (Build 14.0.8089.0726). You can check your current version number in the About Windows Live Mail dialog.

You can install it from .
