Hello, newbie with a first question.

 

I'm basically computer illiterate so I'm not up to date with all terms.

 

I have a desktop with W7 and use chrome.

 

If I go to a site from chrome normally there is no issue.

 

If I am on Livemail and click on a post from a site I'm on, I often get a "google not responding" freeze up.

 

I have to restart to get past the freeze up.

 

My internet provider is Shaw and my email is @shaw.ca but it is routed through Livemail.

 

Is Livemail getting phased out?? 

 

Any input is appreciated!!

 

Thanks

Randy

Welcome to BC...

 

Read through the info at Windows Live Mail 2012 will not connect to Outlook.com - Outlook

That will likely give you some ideas on how to solve the problem with Chrome.

Appreciate the input but I'm still confused!!

 

Can you or anyone recommend something free that replaces Livemail??

 

I want to keep Win 7, and my @shaw email address but don't cant figure out what to get and what to delete.

 

Maybe I should say I don't know what what replaces what.

 

Is it Livemail that needs replacing??

 

Thanks

Randy

I share your confusion.

 

I have found Thunderbird Mail to be a godsend.

 

I have used it to access the emails form my internet provider,..... bigpond (Australia)

 

Thunderbird is made by Mozilla....the same people who make Firefox.

 

You do not need to run Firefox to use Thunderbird. It works independently.

I'm sure someone can help you if you post those questions in the Web Browsing/Email and Other Internet Applications forum.
