Note: Because very few email clients are considered secure enough by Google, you will probably need to enable "Access for less secure apps" option or Windows Live Mail will be unable to connect to your Google Apps account. For more information, click here.
Microsoft discontinued support for Windows Live Mail (WLM) in June 2016 and removed the ability to download and install the latest version of WLM from microsoft.com. Per SIL GTIS' software support policy, Windows Live Mail then moved from a "support" status to a "help" (aka "best effort") status for both the GTIS Global Help Desk and Email Admin teams.
On the other hand, WLM has been a very stable email client and SIL Google Admin and the Global Help Desk believe they can provide great technical help for this email client. Anyone that has been using WLM in the past may continue to use it. If a user needs help moving to a new computer, GTIS will offer help reinstalling WLM on new device. On the other hand, users who have not previously been using WLM will not be offered this option. Instead, these users must select an email client from the list of supported clients.
