You can add all your email accounts to Windows Live Mail. It's as easy as typing in an email address and password, and then following a few steps. Once your email accounts have been added, organize your conversations. Here's how to do all this in Mail.
Add an email account
In your Mail inbox, click Accounts and then click Email. Type your email address, password, and display name, and then click Next. If you want to add more accounts, click Add another email account.
Send lots of photos
Send high-resolution photos to family and friends with Windows Live Mail. They can then easily find, view, and download your photos. Since the photos are stored on Windows Live SkyDrive, nobody's inbox gets overloaded.
In your Windows Live Mail inbox, on the Home tab, click Photo email. Choose the photos you want to add to your email message, and then type a name for your album.
Type the email addresses of the people you want to share your photos with. Click Format, and then click Album privacy to decide who can see your photos. By default, only those people you send the photo email message to will be able to see your pictures. Next, just click Send.
To turn conversation view on or off in Mail, click the View tab, click Conversations, and then click On or Off.
Turn conversations on to see messages grouped by subject. To expand or collapse a conversation, in the message list, select a message that has a triangle next to it. To show or hide all of the messages in a conversation, click the triangle next to the message or click Expand/collapse.
Add events to your calendar from your inbox
You can add reminders for events and other special days to Windows Live Calendar quickly and conveniently right from your Windows Live Mail inbox. Just type your event name in the calendar pane and it will show up immediately. Then, double-click your event to add a location or other details.
