I also tried Windows Live Mail some months ago. It is a nice mail client. However, it doesn't recognize my Google contacts like Windows 10 Mail and Thunderbird do, so I abandoned it. I didn't investigate for very long if there was a way to get it to look up contacts in Google contacts. I found lots of information about how to import Google contacts into Windows, but I don't want to just import them. I want the client to be able to actively sync with Google contacts so changes to the contact list are seamless.
