The directions:


If you use Outlook Express to view Hotmail, you can choose to download free Windows Live Mail (recommended) or change the settings on your program to access your Hotmail within Outlook Express. Click here to learn more about your options.

Download and install windows live mail.
Set it up for your hotmail account.
Click the tools menu and select sync for hotmail to
download the folders and emails.
Then you can set live mail as default in windows and
remove the account from outlook and outlook express.

Live mail is basically an updated outlook express.

OK.I DL LIVE,How do I know if this is my default mail.Outlook is still there but if I try to access anything I get an error.Do I still need to have OE..All the folders in OE were imported to Live,which is good.
However,all of my mail now goes to junk mail in LIVE.Is this correct.Also in LIVE i have on the left side access to OE and hotmail pop that I had earlier,Will this goe away if I get rid of the original OE...Hope I explained this ok....

Since all your mail is synced you can get rid of outlook express.
Depending on which version of windows you have there should
be default settings at start/default programs.
You can make sure it is default there.
As far as everything going to junk,you may need to set the
filter priority.
Probably at tools/options in live mail.
Sounds like you have some installation problems with outlook.
If you are not using that for anything else,you might want to
uninstall it.
