Would it be okay for me legal wise to use the Windows Mail icon in low resolution format (64 pixel) like that on the Wiki page? I would not save the image to my FTP but use the image URL ( ) that is already uploaded to WikiMedia. Thanks so much, this is for my contact page on my website! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Spencercjohnson (talkcontribs) 00:49, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

  1. I'd advise against it. First, you're using the Wiki servers for your site, adn thus using their bandwidth for your own purposes, which is not nice. Second, the image's use on wikipedia is informative, while you plan to use it to spice up your own site, which is not considered fair use. Erik 22:35, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Removed Features[edit]

Any other wikipedians notice that you can't access web based email (e.g. Hotmail) via WM as you could with OE? This isn't mentioned in Removed Features section but I don't have a source for it. Original Research not accepted, so if someone has a source maybe you could add it to the list? Of course if you have POP access with your Web Based email you can use WM with that, but the http protocols (e.g. Hotmail) are not supported.

Windows Mail in Windows 7[edit]

"Windows Mail" is not removed on Windows 7, it's still there (C:\Program Files\Windows Mail\) but it's disabled. It's needed to mess with lots of settings to activate it (manuals about that can be found in the Internet). You might want to add it. Galzigler (talk) 10:53, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

Windows Mail (Metro Mail, or the Mail app) in Windows 8[edit]

When sending an e-mail from Windows 8's metro-app named mail it states as being send from Windows Mail, and ALL of Windows Live's services are said to be R.T.M. in some form in Windows 8, sometimes by functionality (like the image sharing options in the file explorer rather than a Windows (Live) Photo Gallery-only version of the Ribbon), and in this case also in name. Many things written as Vista only were put back in in Windows 8. -- (talk) 18:53, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
