Here is a picture of what I mean. You need to scroll right down the bottom in the left pane when you have WLM open, there you will see:
- Add and e-mail account
- Four Icons namely
- Mail >Contacts>Feeds>Newsgroups>Messenger
- Put your cursor over them to see what they are

I have some new information for you so there is something to learning by probing.
Re: my AIO's inability to 'add' WLM = It was not in my pc as was O.E..
I googled WLM and downloaded it to be part of my machine and there it was as an addition to the AOI. Good!
You once distinguished between the various names Windows has, i.e., WLM, Windows Live Hotmail etc. Well I never had WLM all the time, I had Windows LIve Hotmail.
When I installed WLM I never did see the 4 icons even your pik refers to but that does not mean they were not there. I just did not locate them as I was rushing to become operable again.
Speaking of confusion, I must stop here to make a point; I tried to set up WLM ac't using the info from O/E. as a reference such as outgoing / incoming etc but I goofed + caused WLM to malfunction.
To become operable, I simplified by: 1-removing WLM as I could not set it up , 2-recreating O.E., 3-using WLHotmail and my Comcast ac't. 4- newsgroup searches as necessary. Altho awkward, this where I now stand so all can function.
Please do what you want at this point as I can function with these choices.
I would like to know about settings like pop3 smpt etc for WLM now that I can install it but only if you want to do so. Apparently I cannot justcopy my O.E. settings. Google and Microsoft were too confusing.
Otherwise, take the day off with my thanx for all you have done.

Firstly it would help considerably if you did not abbreviate as half the time I am struggling to understand you....for example
I don't know if this relates to it but when I tried to open WLM from my AIO it said errors occurred with the settings such as incoming and outgoing.
What is AIO?
To clarify, it would assist greatly if you do not abbreviate. If you do have Windows Live Mail installed and followed my Post #11, I cannot understand why you cannot set up your Newsgroup utility by following along with the prompts offered.
Keep me posted and do not hesitate to post back. We, that is you and I are going to solve this in the end
