    windows live mail


    What I would like to do is have two windows live mail on one system, I do not want to run them at the same time, I just would like to be able to have two wlm for two difference person. I am running windows 8.1 with all updates on a HP system. I currently have a logon for two people but sometime one thing or another get mess up on my wife side an then it takes time to get it ok again and I think if I use just one logon it will work better but I do not want both of our e-mail top be on the same wlm.

    WLM is designed to do exactly as you want to do.

    The possible issue for your needs is that WLM and a lot of other Microsoft and 3rd party applications achieve this through the use of multiple accounts, for WLM you just complete the set-ups on each account to point to the individuals own email account.

    I'm not sure what issues you are having with dual accounts but if you want to let us know i'm sure there are some workarounds with shared and or private locations can be applied to minimise the issues.

    By the way it's getting late here so it may be tomorrow before I get a chance to reply
