Chapter 9. Working with E-mail, Contacts, and Events

You may find that your life is busier than ever, and the number of people you need to stay in touch with, appointments you have to keep, and tasks you have to perform seem to increase daily. Fortunately, you can install the Windows Live Mail program to send e-mail to and read e-mail from friends, family, colleagues, and even total strangers almost anywhere in the world. You can also use Windows Live Mail's Contacts feature to manage your contacts by storing information such as phone numbers, e-mail addresses, street addresses, and much more. Finally, you use the Calendar feature to enter and track events.
