Windows Live Mail

An email client from Microsoft developed as the succcessor to both Outlook Express in Windows XP and Windows Mail in Vista. Windows Live Mail, or simply Mail in Windows 8, is a client mail program for installation on the desktop, whereas "Windows Live Hotmail" was Microsoft's Web-based email offering before it was rebranded (see Outlook.com). See Windows Live.
