Hotmail and Windows Live Mail are two distinctly separate email accounts, one not connected to the other. I have both.......they do different jobs for me.
2-I have a Hotmail account in which I log in as firstname.lastname@example.org it is also referred to as Windows LIve Mail, I believe.
Windows Live Mail has succeeded Outlook Express. If you are using it, you will know that it picks up all settings from OE when you install Windows live Mail.
I hope this is clear to you.

Sorry if I am redundant but;
when I want to sign in to my Windows Live Mail I use ------@hotmail.com.
Should I change this? My first post says it all but now I don't know if I should use my O.E. ac't to try to get newsgroups and replies to Windows Live mail.
The problem I am having is coordinating O.E., hotmail, Windows Live mail, and in internet opt's > programs what program to use as default.
Is it possible to erase everything and do a step by step.
Starting again is a bit drastic to my way of thinking.
First of all I suggest you make your Windows Live Mail your default Email Program.
Then open WLM, go to Tools > Accounts and there you can set up whatever you like to bring in your Hotmail, Gmail or most other accounts you may have. I have set mine up this way and only ever access Windows lIve Mail to collect all my mail.
Don't forget that Windows Live Mail replaces OE so from now on ignore OE and suggest you go with my above suggestions for simplicity.

Let's try to clear this up for you.
Now you have Windows Live Mail as your default email program I suggest you do this
I sign in to my O.E. (which is where I originally set up the newsreader along with an ac't.) with my Comcast information but I use different sign in information for the hotmail ac't. To complicate matters my ISP C-cast sent a notice out that they no longer support newsgroups. I saw two free programs
- Control Panel
- Add and Remove
- Click on Add/Remove Windows Components in the left pane
- Uncheck Outlook Express if it is checked/enabled
- Exit out of Add and Remove
Now you have Windows Live Mail as the default, open it and look at the bottom where you will see
I simplified all by using Comcast's web based server for personal mail + Hotmail for an alt. mail address. Int opt's> programs I use Windows Live Mail as default email so if I encouter a hyperlink ,it will open for me to send the message.
- Add an email account
- Five options will show namely, Mail>Contacts>Feeds>Newsgroups>Messages
- click on Newsgroups (in your case) to set up a new account
If you have installed the software for your new printer correctly, open an email or any word document, then go to
More importantly, I have a new AIO Canon. Although I do not now use the fax function as I have a stand alone, I cannot 'add' to the email program my Windows Live Mail/Hotmail. I click on add and can see program files, windows etc
- Scroll to print
- This should automatically print out whatever you want, be it either an email or from a word document

Open your Windows Live Mail, select any email as a trial, and do the following:
- Scroll to print
- This should automatically print out the email you selected.
Post back and let us know please.

I can tell I am not explaining myself well + I commingled too many issues together -sorry.
First issue, I have no problem printing any document -that's good.
Second issue has to do with my "scan to email' feature with my Canon AIO.
When I click "add attachment to this program" I have three choices; 1-do it manually, 2- Outlook Express, 3-problem here 'click on 'add' to find another program like WLM but I cannot enter it.' I have bypassed all by scanning to file and adding it to my isp mail or to my WLM ac't manually. It puzzles me though why I can't attach the WLM program. Ironically, Canon Tech support is down today . The reason I am frustrated is in int opt's > programs I can choose from three programs O.E. MSN explorer and WLM. I have selected WLM.
Ultimately I will use the steps you gave me to clear this up but for now I can work around this
Third issue has to do with trying to get replies from Windows newsgroups to my WLM - replies used to go to my hotmail ac't then stopped after two years. Now they don't even go to the O.E. newsreader.
I worked around that by going to the newsgroup and doing a search.
THis may be redundant to you but hopefully it has clarified an errant thought or two.
Bottom line I am going to get Canon support re: 'scan to email.'
Then I'll use your information to see what I can do about getting replies to my WLM.
I am puzzled why you seem to think I cannot "file> print" iIt has never been a problem.
If all this is too much, perhaps you would like me to only come back with updates as these isses get resolved , or not
Please do not get bogged down in my problems as they will be resolved over time Thank you for your help and I'll be in touch.
