I currently have Windows Live Mail on our Window 7 computer. Can I also load it on a new additional computer with Windows 8? Will they both have the identical e-mails?

Thanks

Windows Live Mail is a free download, you can install install it wherever you want: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-CA/windows-live/essentials-other-programs

You will of course need to setup your email account on the new computer after installing WLM and you can set it up at least have the same incoming emails and maybe even identical sent andother folders too but that will depend on the type of email account you are using; ie. Hotmail, GMail, your ISP's email, etc.

As long as you are signed in with the same account you will be able to get your emails to download on all signed in computers. The only exception could be if you set your email service to delete messages after they are downloaded. If you are using Outlook.com (formerly known as Hotmail) you won't have this problem since they don't have that option.
