MS Outlook & Windows Live Mail for Windows 7

Will Microsoft Outlook 2010 work with Windows Live Mail installed on the
same computer under Windows 7? I am running into problems. I got Windows
Live Mail configured okay, but Microsoft Outlook is giving me problems.

I was successful in getting Windows Live Mail configured right, but for the
life of me, not Microsoft Outlook. I tries every combination I could think
of, mainly using the same user name, password, POP3 and SMTP account
information I used for Windows Live Mail, but it just does not work. I am at
a loss.

Personally, I would stick to just Windows Live Mail, if they did not
eliminate the ability to use Stationary and Backgrounds. That alone is
important to our e-mails.

In Outlook you need to specify especially for IMAP accounts each one separately. Are
you using IMAP or POP ??

I thought others would like to know, I was finally successful in getting
Microsoft Outlook 2010 configured correctly. It wasn't an easy task, as
compared to Windows Live Mail, but with WLM, both the Stationary and
Background features have been eliminated. Both of those features are very
important in our e-mails. That's why I had to switch to Microsoft Outlook
2010 instead.

Yet, as you know, it takes a bit more to get Outlook up and running; far
more trial and error that WLM. But at least it is now working.

Now, my next issue is, just how do I make a copy of my e-mail address file
in Windows Live on my old computer, and transfer it to Microsoft Outlook
2010 on our new computer?
