You can download Thunderbird from Mozilla, it is similar to Outlook, it's free, and it works well. It now uses tabs like a browser so tabbing between emails makes things simpler and holds them handy until you close them.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I'm afraid that you are labouring under a misaprehension. When you install Windows Live programs you are given the choice to install just selected items. I have only Live Mail installed.

You can uninstall individual Live programs. Go to Control Panel/Programs & Features, select Windows Live and click 'uninstall/change', you will then be given a list of the Live programs & you can choose which to uninstall without affecting the others.

If you already have Live Mail installed along with the rest, you should not be getting the 'default mail client' errors, so it may be worth going through the 'repair' option that you get as well
