Features

Although the Windows Mail interface has only minor differences from Outlook Express such as the toolbar icons being replaced to reflect Windows Vista's interface and some interface features incorporated from Outlook 2003 including the right-hand "reading pane," larger changes have been made under the hood.

  • Mail messages are now stored in individual files instead of in a single database file. A transactional index database enables real-time searching and improves the stability and the reliability of the stored data. In case of corruption, the indices can be rebuilt from the mail files.
  • Account setup information is no longer stored in the registry. It is instead stored alongside the mail itself, making it possible to copy an entire Windows Mail configuration and mail store to another machine in a single step.
  • Features like Bayesian junk-mail filtering and top-level domain and encoding blocking have been added.
  • A phishing filter has been incorporated as well, protecting users from web sites that have been identified as being malicious.
  • Additionally, Microsoft Help Groups has been added, which is a preconfigured link to Microsoft's newsgroups. Some additional functionality has been layered on top of the standard newsgroup functionality to have individual threads be marked as a "question" or an "answered question". Postings may be rated as well.

Removed features and criticism

Microsoft has removed WebDAV support from Windows Mail, unlike its predecessor Outlook Express, which had WebDAV support. Outlook Express integrated with Windows Messenger, however Windows Mail has no integration with Windows Live Messenger or the new Windows Calendar. The more full-featured downloadable application, Windows Live Mail, although free, contains advertisements and instead integrates with Windows Live Contacts. Microsoft has additionally been criticized for creating many different applications for the same practical purpose and creating confusion, with examples being Outlook, Windows Mail/Outlook Express and Windows Live Mail for email; Outlook Address Book, Windows Address Book, Windows Contacts and Windows Live Contacts for email contact management. WebDAV was an IETF working group. ... For the personal information manager included in the Microsoft Office suite, see Microsoft Outlook. ...

In addition, Outlook Express allowed users to customize columns for each individual folder. For instance, the Sender in the Sent Messages folder and the Recipient in the Inbox folder would be the same person in most cases and such trivial information could therefore be omitted to save column space to display other non-trivial information such as long subject lines. In Windows Mail however, all folders use the same column settings. For the personal information manager included in the Microsoft Office suite, see Microsoft Outlook. ...


Unlike Outlook Express, Windows Mail does not allow users to switch Identities or manage multiple identities within one running instance of the program. Instead, identities are now tied to the user account and to create additional users or identities, a new user account has to be created. [1]
