    "Stay away, use Outlook or go to WebMail"

    September 12, 2012  |   By petersonmlp


    Nice folders and message rules, easy to navigate. Have used it for years.


    I have been plagued with slow performance for about a year. The hard drive starts to grind randomly, then the hourglass appears, I have to wait about 2-3 minutes for Windows Live Mail to "unlock itself." I can still work on the other programs while Windows Live Mail is locked, so I know it is particular with the program. I have uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. I have been waiting for a new version to correct this issue. I am getting impatient.
