So long as WLM stays as is then I am a happy chappie. In my searches I have not found a simple mail client that will enable one set of local storage folders for all accounts. Drag and drop into a subject folder from any email provider is really useful, for me at least. If anyone knows of a mail client that offers like for like simplicity then I would love to know.

Thunderbird will do all that, although it does take a little setting up.

The import settings will offer to import a variety of things from other mail clents, and if it's just the address book you're worried about a simple export to csv in your existing client and import from csv in Thunderbird should sort you out.

Thanks for that tip Jon ... I will have a detailed study at some stage. I am sure that the Address Book is easily handled so this won't be an issue. But WLM makes it so easy to drag any email from any @ source into any of the Storage Folders I have created. You say this can be done on Thunderbird so best I look up some of the UTube videos in due course.

Thanks all for your inputs.

Can anyone tell me what people are doing about this?

Note that with Office 365 Home, currently $99 USD per year, you get to install the current version Office Pro Plus on 5 PCs or Macs, 5 tablets, & 5 phones. Not so expensive when you have multiple devices. See Choose your Office for more details.

Hi Joel,
I am determined not to start paying subscription fees to these companies. I paid a lot of money for the software outright. This Email client should have been included until the end. If I have to I will purchase Office 365 for one computer. It is a lot of money. I have two Windows computers. I might say that I just purchased a Google ChromeBook and don't have this trouble.
Thank you,
TomS

Dave,
I believe it is Office 365 not Outlook 365. So confusing!

Office 365 is the subscription version of Microsoft Office. It currently offers the 2016 version of the Office applications (Word 2016, Outlook 2016 etc.)

Hans, Do you really think that Microsoft will keep WLM, yet their own web email will not work on it and others do?

I don't know what you mean by "keep WLM". Microsoft will no longer support or update Windows Live Mail, but it is still available for download. I wouldn't be surprised if it was retracted in the not too distant future.

However, if you have installed Windows Live Mail now, it won't magically disappear. I should keep on running until it's so old that it's not compatible with Windows anymore. I have no idea when that might be.

Hans

As of June 30,2016 you will not be able to sync your MICROSOFT Outlook.com web mail with this MICROSOFT email client. To me that is not compatible. I guess we don't see things the same do we?
Thank you,

That is correct - 365 is the name of the suite, 2016 is the version of the individual applications.

You will also find that NONE of the apps are referred to a 365, including Word, Power Point, Excel and etc.
I use the "365" as it includes ALL updates and Upgrades as they are released.
When I installed "Office 365" it was a earlier version and I was told when a new version was released and I was able to upgrade for no additional charge.

Also remember that there are other versions of "365" that will install on run of other platforms as Office 2016 will NOT.

I hold a license for 5 devices, which I pay $99.99 a year for. I just renewed my subscription this weekend.

Thanks for qualification. I have installed Thunderbird with my 3 email addresses and the single set Storage Folders that I have created can be used across all accounts :clapping:
I had some problems trying to install the Address Book from my Google account using .csv/Excel but found .vcf imported OK ... just needs a clean up.

I will retain my WLM programme for the time being until I am confident with Thunderbird.

YES, some of the other platforms do not support Outlook.
But, the PC Windows version is the FULL suite.

Have a look at http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msu ... are_Office" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The Home package in the first column.
