But unfortunately (unlike thunderbird) WLM doesnt allow you to always open the program direct to inbox, if your last email read was in another folder, it always goes back to that when it reopens. I had'nt been able to set it to forget the last opened folder which is damn annoying, esp on a shared pc.
TB rocks for me.

Thanks for the info,you are right WML is too complicated for me. I'm 79, so I'll just have to struggle
Thanks again

Hi Dickptwo.

What in Thunderbird did you have trouble with or not like ? Its pretty configurable.

You are only a youngster! I find WLM very user friendly and I am 83!
