Re: How do I refresh the folder list?

Windows Live mail is slightly more accessible than Thunderbird.  Also, Windows Live Mail has at least one feature I don't want to lose and I would if I switched to thunderbird.  Wherever I am, I can immediately go to the default inbox by using the short cut command control I. 
 
I haven't used Outlook enough to compare it with Windows Live Mail. 
 
Thunderbird, from what I've read and seen in list discussions, allows you to set message rules within the program for IMAP accounts.  Windows Live Mail doesn't.  My understanding is that message rules can be set directly on the server so this is evidently not a matter of losing the ability, just learning another way to accomplish what is desired. 
 
The newer Windows Live Mail uses ribbons and those who want to use Windows Live Mail with ribbons may use the older version of the program.  List members can provide the installation file.  It is no longer available from Microsoft.

I am still wondering. What is the advantage of using WLM?
Accessibility? Got use of it? I do not want to battle but anyway.
