Installed now, I see. However the ribbon and stuff I'll never use 
makes it hard to use (at least for me). For old school users 
the GUI is simply not intuitive, ribbons just look shiny, that's 
all what they provide IMO :( I have a rock solid mail environment
with an anti-spam pop3 proxy, switching to Live Mail will probably
cost me days until I can be sure that I'm as safe as now (without
having to run a background AV scanner). When time allows I'll have
to find a final solution with or without Live Mail.
