Tom, I am still using it and for the most part, without any serious issues. Some weird little things crop up, like getting the error message that WLM has encountered a problem. But when I press okay, nothing happens and I can go right ahead with whatever I was doing. And believe me there are definitely issues with TB which are as bad or worse and some really annoying shortcomings in TB. The overall experience I have with WLM is still the best and I am running the newest release of Jaws 2020 and the latest build available to me of Win 10 2004.
This message is being done in WLM.

I don’t know why others are having problems, my WLM is still working OK on the latest version of Windows 10.  Tom

WLM is great.  It is the most like Outlook Express, which I also loved.  I am still in Windows 7 world and this news about WLM not working with Windows 10 is disturbing.

Sadly I have to agree with this. I have loved WLM and am still using it part of the time, but find there are more and more hiccups along the way. So I also use Thunderbird and am gradually getting used to it, although I doubt I will ever enjoy it the way I have WLM. WLM does everything faster than any other client I have tried and it has, in the past done everything I ever wanted my email client to do simply but fully. I don't care for to-do list, calendars, etc. Since I am retired.

And it has some very handy features I can't find in others.

It is clear that for Windows 10 users we have entered the stage where Windows Live Mail 2012 (and almost certainly all earlier versions, too) is no longer going to work reliably.

Now is the time to transition to a supported e-mail client of your choosing or webmail (and most webmail can now handle multiple accounts, and accounts that are outside of the webmail itself, e.g., Gmail webmail lets you set up yahoo.com, outlook.com, etc., accounts for reading inside their webmail interface).
