    Question 1: Will changing the Windows Vista Mail (WinMail.exe) User directories (aka "Folders") on a computer running Windows 10 have any effect on the Windows 10 "Mail" client?

    Question 2: Can the Program files at
    "C:\Program Files\Windows Mail" and
    ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Mail"
    be safely removed from a Windows 10 computer without affecting the Windows 10 "Mail" client?

    *** Background information ***

    The Windows 10 Update 1803 messed up my Home Network (via Ethernet) - again! I did get that fixed, but this is about Windows Vista Mail (WinMail.exe). I still use that on my Windows 7 computer, but I have given up the fight to keep it on my Windows 10 computer.

    Windows Vista Mail has a boatload of User files and directories. The directories are located at:
    "C:\Users\{my usernames}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail"
    on both computers. I want to trim this down on the Windows 10 computer to only that which is necessary. My goal is to reset the Shared directories so that I can copy mail messages between both computers for permanent storage.

    The Windows 10 "Mail" client uses "C:\Users\{my username}\Documents" as the default "Save as …" path. I can live with that as a starting point. I might move all of my e-mail messages to directories there on my Windows 10 computer.

    Hello noquiexis,

    Is your goal to only use the new 'built-in' Mail client on Windows 10 ?

    To clarify, are you saying you do Not want to use vista WinMail at all ?
    ..which btw, Win10 v1709/v1803 works just fine with vista WinMail, many people are using it.
    See: Post #1 & especially Post #2 ..with news, info, and screenshots there, all about how to do that.

    ..if you don't want to use Vista WinMail anymore I will understand and respect that.

    I know 'not so much' about the built-in Mail client of Win10 - I've never even used it iirc, or wanted to <g>

    However, if its WinMail (Windows Mail) you want to know about ..then I would know much more about that and could help you, but post over in that WinMail thread there please for any questions about it.

    Makes backups first whatever you do in your quest.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. I only want to use the new 'built-in' Mail client on Windows 10. All I want to keep from Windows Vista Mail are the "Local Folders" structure and the e-mails contained therein.

    I do still use Windows Vista Mail on the Windows 7 machine, so maintaining this structure on the Windows 10 machine will make file sharing easier.
