recipient to download your message. Most email servers limit the size of the ﬁ les you can

convenient time to send the attachment.
Windows Live Mail lets you avoid using attachments when you send photographs.

Managing Your Schedule with Windows Live
Windows Live Calendar is a tool in Windows Live Mail that you use to schedule
appointments, track tasks, and stay on top of deadlines. Windows Live Calendar also lets you
schedule recurring events, such as weekly staff meetings, and set reminders so you don’t
miss an important appointment. When you schedule an event, Windows Live Calendar
blocks out the time in your schedule, helping you avoid scheduling conﬂ icts. You can
schedule appointments, such as meetings, that occur for part of a day, or events, such as
conferences, that last 24 hours or longer. An appointment appears as a colored block in
your calendar, whereas an all-day event appears in a banner at the beginning of a day.
