    That's because, in MS's mind, the new visually-oriented programs supplied in W10 are technically superior -- because they "are technically safer".

    AFAIK, there were possible exploits in some of the WinMail components that MS didn't want to perpetuate.

    Nobody other than MS ever had the source code for WLM, so ... "the remainder is left as an exercise for the student".

    There are too many commercial and public domain options for off-line clients, and only 1 brings MS revenue. "You do the math"
