Windows Live Mail 2012 is not a recommended version even by the Moderators on the Windows forum - problems mainly with Categories/ groups losing all the contacts. It also at times strips embedded photos out of messages when forwarding on & has them as attachments so any story relating to photos is lost.
The Mods recommend reloading 2011 version - I gave it away & use Thunderbird for my e-mail client.

I've been using the 2011 version for the last couple of months with no problems so far, but only because I need to access the Windows Live Calendar, otherwise I also would use Thunderbird, or search around for something similar.

Ed,
There may be reasons why you specifically need Windows live calendar, I don't know.
BUT if it is a calendar facility you need with your email client and NOT specifically Windows live calendar then ther is one available for Thunderbird...Reminder Fox.

Another good calendar for Thunderbird is "Lightening"

I've been using it for a long time. Very good features and stable.

Specifically Windows Live calendar, as it can be shared with other hotmail (outlook.com) users.

Otherwise, I wouldn't need a calendar at all.

Before Live mail, I was using Outlook from Office & that has a good calendar which I still use as it is better IMO that Lightning. Outlook was good except for embedding photos into Text - it can be done but not as easy as Thunderbird.

I use the calendar as a diary by my PC as well - plenty of room to add events/meetings

My missus has got a calendar, with pictures of cats theron, pinned to the side of a kitchen cupboard.  Frankly, I haven't got a clue what you are all talking about!

Terry, one advantage of an electronic calendar, is that if you have recurring events ( as I do with regular monthly operating sessions on 4 other layouts), monthly club meetings, family birthdays, etc, it is easy to do this & not have to write them up each month/year and with some e-mail systems, you can be advised via e-mails or pop ups before the event.
