I have been using Windows Live Mail for years and as 10 takes over I wonder if there are plans to update the email client.  10 shipped with what I am sure is an unfinished mail client, which I suppose could become good if it is further developed, but I would love to think WLM will get a update and facelift.  It would be nice to see a different UI after all this time.

FWIW, I installed 10 over 8.1 and retained Windows Live Mail and IE11 but lost my Money app (MSMoney) and also lost my Chromecast. Supposedly,The MSMoney cure was to d/l their sunrise edition, which, for me, did not work. A registry hack was another suggested remedy that did not work. So I reverted to 8.1 till they get a few bugs worked out.

I have used Live mail since after Outlook and Windows mail in Vista but now I've switched to Outlook. When I upgraded Live mail remained on my PC and still works. I use the modern Mail app for my IMAP mail acounts like AOL and GMAIL. I have set up my POP# account and it worked fine.  Modern Mail was down for about a week after the 2nd update but the 3rd update fixed it.
